“Very nice Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2005

Stayed there in May 2005. Great and comfortable hotel for a reasonable price. The rooms are newly renovated and very large an clean. The complimentary breakfast was excellent with a great variation of food. After that great breakfast, you needed no lunch anymore.
The location is good with great views over the lake, lugano itsself and the mountains. The train station is just a 5 minutes walk away and in 10 minutes you can reach the boat station.
The hotel has also an indoor pool, which wasn`t crowded at all and a nice refreshment after a day of walking in the mountains.
We would highly recommend this hotel!

Stayed at this 4 star “suite” hotel June 2005 for 4 nights. We had a spacious second floor double room which had a separate lounge area and large balcony overlooking the town, lake Lugano and surrounding mountains. The décor was simple, modern and stylish. For all you ladies, the supplied hairdryer is a proper one with decent power (unlike most wimpy hotel hairdryers). The room was very quiet – virtually no plumbing noise from other rooms etc. As noted in other reviews, there is no air conditioning, which might be an issue in summer, but wasn’t for us. A small electronic safe is provided (not big enough for a regular notebook). Cable TV includes various language channels including BBC Prime and CNN. There was a DVD player in case you want to watch your own movies. Free internet/email access on a single terminal in the reception area is very handy. Staff are very friendly and speak excellent English. Didn’t try the pool/gym. The continental buffet breakfast was reasonably comprehensive – there is an omelette-making lady and the eating area looks out over the lake. This town centre is a very pleasant 20 min walk down the hill by the lake. Come back via the bus unless you like hill climbs! The funicular runs past the hotel and is easily accessed for superb views across the region. We can thoroughly recommend this hotel if you want a few relaxing days in Lugano.

A superb setting overlooking the town, lake, and away up to the Alps. The dining room, swimming pool and Havana bar all look out over this vista. The food was very good, but not cheap. Very nice room, which was upgraded by the hotel to a suite, with a very large lounge area with table, 4 chairs, and couch and easy chairs, balcony with table and chairs and two loungers, plus cooker. Loved it!

A really good above average hotel with a qiuet setting in the Pardiso suburb of Lugano. Pay a bit extra for a room with lake view. Well worth it! The view across the Bay and the Alps are stunning. Food is also good, if not a bit too much provided. Some people are never happy!!
Only one small word of caution- the hotel is perhaps not the first choice if you want to be in the centre of town. But it is not too far, and all the other benefits outweigh this.
Overall, a really nice hotel. Recommended.

We just stayed at the Suitenhotel and had a two bedroom apartment on the top floor. This room also included a kitchenette. The views were amazing and the balcony was huge, just right for working on your tan. This is an ideal room for a family as there were four of us and it was very comfortable.

The hotel is best if you are travelling by car since it's up the hill from Paradiso (although it's not a bad walk). The staff were very accomodating and breakfast buffet was substantial.

A nice feature was the free internet access in the hotel lobby. The kids enjoyed having the indoor swimming pool.

Definitely would stay here again when we travel to Lugano.

This hotel is above the Paradiso train station on the hill above the San Salvatore funicular station. It was a hike to walk up to the hotel from the lake but we are strong walkers and enjoyed it. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone who does not enjoy a good walk after dinner. We had a 2 room suite with a large balcony with a great view of the lake and the town of Lugano on the left. The only real downside for us was the lack of airconditioning. This would not have been a problem without the train tracks being so close. Luckily, the trains are not frequent but the freight trains do run during the night.
