A hotel with style, right on the shore of Lake Lugano, within a few steps of the Paradiso pier of the Lake Lugano cruises.
The hotel is a Best Western franchise and my stay there was paid for by the BW reward program - nonetheless, I got a room with superb lake view. Room size is perfectly alright, with all expected amenities provided. The personnel is as friendly as it gets, highly professional and multilingual (mind, this is Switzerland!). The meal in the restaurant was some experience: table linnen and starch-folded napkins, superbly prepared food (also on the vegetarian side - chef was pre-informed about this wish) and a fine choice of wines. Altogether, a place where one could get away from it all for a few days. And do not forget to visit the Church of Santa Maria degli Angioli, some 500m towards the city centre!

Room Tip: streetside rooms offer best lake view - do not mind the odd Lamborghini passing in the night!

Really a room with a view and a fantastic one, facing the bay. The hotel is just in front of the lake. A few minutes, maybe 10, promenade to the historic and shopping center of the city. Boat station nearby. Rooms with air conditioning, balcony, free Wi-fi and besides free PC and printer in the foyer. Extravagant restaurant surrounded by palm trees, offering the best Italian cuisine you can get. Excellent staff.

One of the best hotels to stay if you want to enjoy the switzerland from your room also. The hotel is facing the lake lugano and gives you a excellent view if you get the romm facing the lake both in evening and morning. The rooms are par excellence and provides you with free Wi-fi and Lan access as well as with HDTV with international choice of generes. Breakfast is too good.

We had a junior suite with a lakeview, and we found it exactly how it is depicted on the hotels web page (no trickery or distorted perspectives). The room was large & comfortable, with a good large workable ensuite bathroom. Very clean and comfortable.

We had two balconies, each with a view of the lake.
However, between you and the lake is the major 4 lane main road that is "Riva Antonio Caccia", but beyond this was the tree lined walkway & the lake itself.
During the day it is a main road, so it is noisy with traffic, but as night falls, it becomes quiet, so that you can gaze accross at the lake. (All the hotels & all the main buildings in Lugano are on the same side of the street, so you cant get away from this issue).

Subsequently a restfull sleep is possible thanks to the double glazed windows, the reduced traffic, and the airconditioning, if you need it.

Breakfast was a buffet, supported by waiters, and was quite adequate.

The hotel also supplied free WiFi, which actually worked, but failing that it also supplied a free PC and printer in the foyer.

The staff where all very helpful & friendly, and English was spoken.

The train station at Lugano is at the top of the hill & the hotel is at Lakeside.
The walk down hill from the station to the hotel is possible, though it could take around 20 minutes. The reverse trip will require a major climb up the hill (or use of the funicular railway at around 2 euro a trip), so maybe a taxi would be a better bet if you have a lot of luggage bags.

Room Tip: Its all about the view, so splurge an get a room with a view

I went to Lugano for the weekend and stayed at the Best Western.

The weekend was flawless, excellent hotel staff support and the views from the hotel are stunning. All in front of the lake.

The hotel il about 800m from the center of Lugano.
