My wife and I stayed in the Hotel Dischma for three nights from late May to early June 2009.
Our double room is on the 5th floor and it is huge in size and attached with a big terrace that enjoys a rather good view on the Mt San Salvatore. The room is clean and installed with a mini bar. The bathroom is rather small relatively. The shower tub is rather tiny and the shower screen sometimes touches my legs when showering (hence movements should be limited!).
Though not centrally situated, the hotel is close to the Paradiso train station (6-7 minutes by walking), the Paradiso pier (5-6 minutes), the San Salvatore funicular (4 minutes), as well as a bus station. A supermarket and restaurants are nearby.
There are a few residential blocks around the hotel and the environment is very quiet and free from any traffic noise. It is noted that the Paradiso area is hilly and the train station is situated at a higher level than the hotel entrance, and to us (who travel by public transport), it is rather hard to carry the heavy luggage uphill.
The breakfast buffet is average and adequate. The staff is generally friendly and helpful.
Our double room rate is 138 CHF per night (including the buffet breakfast) and I think it is rather cheap amongst the three-star hotels in the Lugano region. We have used the laundry service of the hotel and the cost is 66 CHF (for 4-5 kg of cotton clothing), and I think it is rather expensive.
We think that the room rate is good value for money and we enjoy the comfortable stay and the convenient location of the Hotel Dischma.
