Tidy and cheap hotel, in the center of Beautiful Lugano. the room is very good. The Hotel is quiet and the breakfast tastyful. You can take a walk on foot by the lake which is very clean. The Hotel offers in price and a parking for your car.

Very good centrally located place to stay for visitors of the city, both businessmen and tourists. Friendly environment, caring personnel, two swimming pools and sauna. Comfortable bed and pillows, which ensures good rest. The only suggestion to improve is related to sound insulation of rooms - at times one could noise from neighboring room.This is worth taking into account during next repairs.

Room Tip: Use your own choice and judgement: take a look prior to checking in...

We stayed one night. The hotel is not centrally located and the facilities are not impressive. The room was ok but the bathroom is in need of an upgrade. There was a window in the bathroom that opened to the neighbor's apartment and you could hear everyone talking. The shower walls were moldy. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant and it was quite good. Although the staff was not that friendly if you made an effort to speak Italian they would make an effort to help. I would recommend this hotel for a very short stay if no other choices were available.

It is not centrally located but you know it before booking it. Eooms are ok, big enough, swimming pool as well ok, restaurant wasn't amazing we found better italian restaurants in downtown.

If you just go to sleep for a weekend and you get a discounted rate then it is ok.

We arrived later to Lugano and needed a hotel . We happened upon the holiday inn... The young man who was on reception was very friendly and helpful. We were given a nice upgrade and the last room . The restaurant area while being tired had good food. All in all alittle pricey but had a carpark was clean and in a good area.

There was one positive; it has friendly nice Italian staff. But that's it.

The place is expensive. It is way out of town. I booked it purely because it has a swimming pool. Which I was told would not be open. It does not have wi-fi in the room. Which was tiny.There was no view of the lake.

Do yourself a favour. get somewhere close to the centre of town. This is a 20 minute walk to the centre of town. The train station is definately a taxi ride.
