It's like having to pay extra for having an telephone or tv in my room. Another way to collect money from the guests.
Room is quite ok, but it smells in there. I guess it's because of the old carpeting on the floor which has seen it's better days.
Mr. Payne's Mattress-check is again ruthless and unforgiven: THE MATTRESSES are too hard!
After a week I spend in Delfino I had to visit my chiropractic to get my back in shape again. I can only recommend for someone very heavy, or to the one who sleeps on the stomach.
Another ridiculous thing: In the hotel-book is written that keeping own foodstuff in the hotel fridge/minibar is forbidden, and that the guests could be charged extra for that. Hey; what am I paying for? What is good in minibar is that one drink (costs 4 chf) is offered you free of charge.
Breakfast is ok, nothing extra but basic swiss brekfast. Mr. Payne was though missing his eggs and bacon. Also tea served was just "black tea" without possibility to choose from different varieties.
There's nothing in Delfino what would lift it above the other 3-stars in Lugano.
