“Amazing Hotel Experience.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2012

Perfect location at the foot of the funicular leading from the train station to the city center. The staff are all incredibly attentive and friendly and make a point of remembering your name. Rooms are very comfortable, although somewhat small if that is important to you. (We found it to be fine.) No noise from the street in spite of the central location. Quality linens with your choice of seven different kinds of pillows. Shower heads were marvelous. The breakfast buffet was the largest I've ever seen and the food was good. Both breakfast and wifi are complimentary. I highly recommend this hotel.

A nice clean hotel with a fantastic breakfast buffet in the Lugano Center. Wifi is a standard and the personnel make you feel home. The Lugano lake is a short walk.
It is like to be home. In the hall there is a complementary coffee machine.
It is a great place to spend few days as a holiday, for business or just for a short break,

One night here on a stopover - what a find! The staff couldn't have been more professional, welcoming or helpful. From the moment we arrived they made us feel totally welcome and relaxed. The breakfast is sumptuous and plentiful and the room was new, well thought out and extremely comfortable. When you stay at hotels that are renovating and upgrading, usually it's painful. Not the case with this one - you wouldn't have known the work was going on as it was so well managed for guests. The location is great: close proximity to lake, shops and restaurants. Highly recommended!

Excellent location in the centre of Lugano! We travelled by train and took the 1 minute Funicular ride and arrived at the front door of a truly 4 star hotel!! After a long trip on the William Tell Express it was wonderful to be greeted by such a courteous staff and offered free tea and coffee. The room was compact and comfortable. Breakfast was just simply Huge!!! And was possibly the best while on a six week tour of Europe. Where in the world would you be having a melted thick hot Chocolate for breakfast (dark or white...)only in Switzerland !!!lFabulous.....

We were happy with the service of the hotel even before we arrived, as they allow us to choose, through an e-mail sent to us a day before the trip, many elements of our stay, from the kinds of pillows we wanted to what sort of beverages we would appreciate on our minibar. Getting there by car was trickier than what we expected, as our GPS didn't want to collaborate. Thankfully, we contacted them by phone and they directed us perfectly to their garage door. All employers were very friendly and helpful, the sweets at the reception are very appreciated and we also got bags with cookies on check-out, fantastic! The breakfast buffet options were really great (all sorts of cakes, freshly pressed orange juice and hot chocolate made on spot out of Toblerone!). We also appreciated the one page news they make available in several languages (with news that interest persons from that particular language/countries). The location is very good, cannot complain about anything. One of the best hotel experiences I ever had!

I'm using to go in this hotel at least once a year, and it's really pleasant to feel like at home ecah time we are there.

Service is perfect, rooms are really clean and confortable, sweets at the reception are appreciated. You can setup your room before your arrival and ask what you want to have in your bar.

All personal is really kind and still available for any of your request.

F.

Room Tip: Ask for a Junior suite on the top floors, which have a great view on the lake of Lugano.
