Hotel Delfino Lugano
Ranked #16 of 45 Hotels in Lugano
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 23, 2013

Delfino Hotel in Lugano is a very friendly hotel. Every employee is aware that real customer-value is service, attention, hospitality and affinity.
Quality of food, whether it is breakfast, lunch or dinner is tasteful and excellent. (buono) The rooms are very nice and very clean.
The area of the hotel is quiet but 10 minutes walking you are downtown.
For young to old the place to be.

We stayed here for one night, and had booked 2 triple rooms. Rooms were neat and clean, as well as spacious. Swimming pool was excellent. They also provide breakfast , which is ok types.
Very near from Lugano Train Station , 3rd stop from the station. Lugano Lake is at 10 minutes walking distance from the hotel, and its beautiful. Monte Solaro is 2 minutes away from the hotel.

Overall a nice place to stay.

The Delfino is a little way out from the city centre, towards Paradiso, but still easily walkable. The hotel staff, from reception to bar staff and cleaners, were all friendly and helpful. I thought the furnishing overall was pretty good for the price, and there is a large bar area leading out to the pool and terrace, which is nice on a sunny day. The pool is well maintained and has shower/changing facilities. The rooms are quite small, reasonably furnished and a decent bathroom, although we did not like the sliding door arrangement. The walls seem to be quite thin as there was some noise from the adjoining room (not the occupants fault - just normal moving around). We would certainly go back to this hotel again for a 1-2 night break.

Room Tip: The hotel backs on to the main railway line so rooms ending "14", which are at the far end...

The hotel Delfino is quite close to the lake of Lugano (walking distance) but has as well an own quite big pool. Ideal for vacation as well as for meeting in larger groups. Free WiFi on the room. Parking garage (with an OK price). Sat afternoon to Sunday free parking in the blue zone next to it. Friendly and helpful staff.

If you love worn, 30 year old furniture so you will find in this hotel your bliss.
Beside the not very recent furniture my room was not only very, very small but it also strongly smelled of mould / dampness. According to the reception staff all rooms smell like this ...
The only bright spot was the recently renovated bathroom (with shower nozzles which need a decalcification).
Breakfast was basic but nice and the outside pool looked nice too. I didn't experience dinner in this hotel because when I came down at 7 PM there were only two tables occupied and on all the other tables had a "reserved" sign. When I asked the waiter for a nice table he told me that there was no more place available. In my humble opinion there is something wrong in the system if a waiter in an empty restaurant refuses customers. Maybe some management presence in the restaurant could help to avoid such unpleasant experiences and increase revenue.

I'm twice a month in Lugano for my job and always at Delfino. I must say that I never had a single reason to complain. Delfino provides a constant quality and I appreciate that very much. The room is clean and comfortable and the people there are just perfect. Ideally located, close to lake and train station.

We had three great days @ the Delfino's. Specially the meal in the evening with very attentive personnel we enjoyed much. The room was clean with enough spaces even for some working. The hotel is good situated, few steps to the lake and nearby the motorway into Lugano.
