The hotel itself is nicely situated close to most things you might need within walking distance.
The staff at the reception is very nice and also German or English speaking which is not all that common in Lugano and the Canton Ticino wher Italian is the going language.
The rates are acceptable but I was unfortunate to receive a room which was almost standing room only, a bed a small bathroom and that was just about it.
The restaurant connected to the Hotel does not serve alcohol apart from non-alcoholic beer. However if you do not care about that it would be of no concern.
The parking is a bit tricky as there are onle about three spaces outside the entrance and apart from that you have to park at the public parking across the street, connected to the Casino where you can loose as much money as you care for.
All in all the hotel is OK except for the parking problem.
The very nice staff at the reception made all the difference and they found me parking right outside. Parking in Lugano is otherwise a great problem if you do not know your way around.
