We arrived here after ten days on a bus group trip through Italy. We breathed a sigh of relief that we finally found rooms with enough room to feel comfortable in. The first thing we ran to check was that we would have enough room to turn around in in the shower! Now I know that in Italy space in those older buildings is paramount but it was really a joy to find a shower we actually found functional. We also had had comfortable clean beds and we were happy!
There are safes to use and we were able to borrow a universal adaptor as for some reason our European ones didn't fit. Breakfast was small but sufficient. Overall a good value hotel within walking distance of the beautiful lake. Would recommend.

My DW (Dear Wife) and I arriived in Lugano at around 21h00 after a long train ride from London.
Taxi from station around 15 Euros. Pleasant and helpful night reception. Nice clean room - up to the usual IBIS standards - probably one of the best we have stayed in.

What was the most important thing when we arrived at the hotel? Get the WIFI activated. !!
We had a few problems but the receptionist was more the helpful.

Very comfortable beds - Indeed my DW said it was the best night's sleep she has had for months which is high praise indeed.

Breakfast was fine - usual continental breads and meats and good coffee. Nothing superb but more than adequate.

Bathroom - clean and functional. Usual IBIS standards of soap attached to the wall and extremely thin towels. This would have made me give this 4 stars instead of 5 but the service was so good ....

Next morning we had to go over the border into Italy and reception arranged a car and driver to take us there - very smooth operation.

Switzerland tends not to use regular European electricity adaptors but instead uses a three pin variant. Fortunately has this sorted.

We would certainly stay here again.

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.
