Novotel Lugano Paradiso

Don't be turned off by the fact that it's a chain hotel. It's modern, stylish, very well appointed for both pleasure and business stays, efficient, with good service and good breakfast. Walking distance to the main lakeside promenade and to the funicular. The price was also hard to beat for Lugano.

This hotel is only minutes walk from the Lake and a short walk into the centre of Lugano. It certainly lived up to its brand as a Novotel. The service was friendly and the food in the restaurant was excellent. The rooms were well appointed and we slept well. We would definitely stay here again.

Located in Paradiso district, the hotel is 25 minutes walk from city center. Although mass trasnport and taxis are available, I definitely suggest taking a walk at the promenade while enjoying the fabulous view of the lake. A typical Novotel with its furbishing and amenities. Standart room size is appropriate for families upto 3 people. Good value for a short stay.

Stayed here as a family of 4 with 2 kids under 10. Good family package: 2 Business Executive rooms on 7th floor - with lake view - 1st room full price, 2nd room half price. Most importantly = connecting doors! Well-located hotel if you want to stay away from the middle of busy Lugano, but you will need to go into centre for dinner etc (bus no. 1 just around the corner!). Very modern hotel, nice decor, good-sized rooms (incl. small sofa), very nice bathrooms. Firm beds + quiet area = a good night's sleep! Pleasant walk along lake to the city centre. Situated 2 mins from funicular railway to San Salvatore (lovely trip for family, with spectacular views). All the staff were great with us, can't fault them. However, we avoided overpriced breakfast (CHF 27!) by going to cafe/bakery just around the corner.

Room Tip: Ask for room overlooking swimming pool to get a lake view!

An ultra modern hotel in the Paradio area of Lugano. 5 mins walk to lake, 15 mins walk along lakeside into city centre. If travelling by train suggest taxi from Lugano station as Lugano Paradiso station, although barely 10 mins walk from hotel has no taxis and rather desolate with no directions. On check in receptionists cold and slow and insisted breakfast not included when e-mail confirmation stated it was. A different receptionist on duty at check out was far friendlier.Booked exceptionally good offer from UK, normal rates high. Room spacious, modern, comfortable and had every facility you could expect. Huge wall TV had many International channels, inc many UK ones. Excellent lightning and 2 free bottles of mineral water provided daily. However there is a danger of stye over substance - privacy screen button in bathroom amusing but pointless really, bathroom doors look great but heavy and noisy, bedside tables ridiculously small and have pointed edge at eye level when sleeping, room has not a single coat hook. Breakfast good and by far the biggest selection I have ever had in a Novotel but service lacking and further dispute over inclusion in rate. None of these are major complaints and overall I would certainly recommend this hotel but stye wins out over practicality and service.

The hotel is very nice and modern. The hotel is located near the lake and at 10 minutes to the center of Lugano.
The restaurant and bar staff is cold and dismissive at dining... not adeguate for this category of hotel.
