“what is most important?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

l will admit, to start, that we are spoiled americans. we usually stay at a hilton, but we have stayed at Ibis before. the most important thing when considering a hotel us to us: THE BED!
the beds here are comfy, you will like them. the hotel itself is spartan, but clean. the room is tiny, but has what you need. the shower has plenty of hot water, but sometimes the temp varies and you have to adjust. these is one squeeze tube in the shower with contents described as OK for use as body wash or shampoo. definitely not the hilton. internet works well, and is free, breakfast in usual buffet. there is a pool, but it belongs to the novotel next door, same chain, but more upscale. you can walk, 5 min. to the lake (Lugano), and another 20 minutes to downtown, which has restaurants and upscale shopping (YSL, etc.).
the staff is friendly and they speak english. Marco at the front desk is a treasure. he gave us a map of Switzerland to supplement our GPS, which is sometimes bi-polar.
So, good location, friendly staff, clean hotel, excellent bed but tiny room. biggest complaint, parking is extra, and expensive. $25-30, and you have to use it because the on street parking is maximum of one hour.

Room Tip: we were in room 523, with a partially obstructed view of the lake.

Really new Ibis. located beside ibis budget and novotel.
The new ibis bed is very comfortable.
However, room wasn't considered clean.
had 2 hair in the shower when we checked in. and a dead mosquito on the wall near the window.

In the morning, it was hard to go down stairs as there is only 1 very small lift. we ended up going down through budget's lift.

Functional and typical for an Ibis room: ugly bath however clean and limited amenities. Value hotel, though for one night stay the “same door” Ibis budget should be considered.
The CHF 15.- breakfast buffet is at most correct except for the standard Ibis but disappointing coffee machine, not acceptable for Switzerland, especially in Tessin where usual quality is much higher. TV channels choice and available Wifi appreciated.

Room Tip: no fitness center available

We recently spent two nights at this hotel after travelling by train from Rome. It is about a five minute ride by taxi from the Lugano train station and after getting over the cost of the taxi ride (20CHF) we settled comfortably into the Ibis. The weather wasn't in our favour for our stay in Lugano, but we were greeted by helpful, friendly staff and made to feel welcome! Our room was clean, quiet and comfortable and the bed was like heaven after experiencing some hotels in Italy. We enjoyed a good breakfast on both mornings at the Ibis and at night went into the Novotel next door for a nightcap. Although Paradiso is a little way out of Lugano, it gives you the opportunity to take a lovely, easy walk along the lake into Lugano. Lugano is a beautiful city and we took a ferry from Paradiso to Gandria on the lake, which we highly recommend. If we ever get back to Lugano we wouldn't hesitate to stay at the Ibis Lugano Paradiso.
