This is a recently remodeled more middle priced Novotel property. This hotel sits opposite a Holiday Inn and is attached to the Novotel and a Budget Ibis, which is even less expensive, in a nice neighborhood. The room is brand new and is slightly smaller than the European average size. The beds were very comfortable and the room very clean. The free wi-fi worked well. The bathroom is small, but functional. It reminds one of a cruise ship bathroom. It looks as if it is premade in four sections and assembled in place with Grohe faucets. There is a smaller shower and a small amount of floor space. Yet everything functioned well. The staff were attentive, and appeared to know what they were doing, unlike those experienced by previous reviewers. There was soap and a hair dryer in the bath, which previous reviewers did not find. For Lugano, and for the very expensive Switzerland in general, this is a very reasonably priced hotel, that is an excellent value for the quality of the property. Breakfast is not included, and we found an excellent bakery a half a block away. Five bubbles given, as the price is very reasonable for the quality in a very high rent district. Unfortunately, we did not read the previous reviewer who found out how to take a bus. We spent $30 to take a taxi in the rain from the train station.
