Small budget hotel, clean but allocation is strategic. From train station to funicular to the hotel is less than 10 minutes. Breakfast is ok, basic. Room is also ok, clean. For the price paid, everything is good. Coop is next to the hotel, so it is very convenient. Highly recommended. The staff is very helpful and friendly.

If you are looking for a average priced comfortable hotel with an excellent location this is it. However the breakfast was substandard. The staff though was very helpful. Rooms clean and neat and excellent restaurants at close promity.

The Hotel offers a perfect location right in the center of Lugano. It is very convenient for exploring the city and offers several nice restaurants and bars close by. Being central of course also brings some additional noise level during the night (and it i next to a church) but we did not feel disturbed and the windows closed quite fine. The staff is fluent in several languages incl. English and was very nice and helpful. Breakfast was simple but fully sufficient. Overall a really good deal!

This is right in the middle of the walking mall and a block from the Lake. Good value. Nothing fancy. Great shower pressure. Friendly and helpful staff. We didn't have the breakfast. Beds and pillows are firmer than preferred, but okay.
