The first point to note is that this hotel is in Lugano-Paradiso - which is a fair drag from Lugano itself (you'll see a large fountain across the corner of the lake as you stand in the main town - that is near the hotel.
After failing to get an acceptable rate in Lugano itself, I chose the Dischma in the nearby area of Lugano-Paradiso. Although it was thus away from the centre of town, there was a good bus connection, and a local train option too. It’s only a short walk to the lake from the hotel, in close proximity to the big fountain.
There was a friendly welcome, with excellent English spoken, and the room was functional with a comfortable bed – although the pricing in the hotel bar was eye-watering.
The in-room wi-fi worked well, and the room temperature was easy to regulate with a dual-action window complete with shutter blind – and there was a small balcony area too. The lack of in room power points was a slight issue, which meant sacrificing one of the main room lights in order to use a computer with a power adaptor.
