I stayed in the hotel Federal with my day daughters for a few weeks. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The location was outstanding as it was close to the train station and very close to the city center. I had to walk up a beautiful citi center hill every time I wanted to go back to the hotel but it served as an excellent post dinner promenade. The rooms were very comfortable and had very good air-conditioning. The view was acceptable and cleanliness was outstanding. The food at the restaurant was actually very good and better than I thought. Steak tartar was great, and the service was fabulous. The waiters (Rosa, Fernando, Gerardo) have been waiting tables there for a long time and made us feel as if we were eating in our home. Whenever I go back to Lugano I will stay in that hotel. I'm actually looking forward to going back and say hello to everybody there. I think that for the price this is one of the best places to stay in Lugano. It is a family operated establishment that exemplifies classic Swiss excellence, cleanliness, timeliness, neatness, and family values.
