“nice view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Good service and nice lake view. The hotel is very good located as the city center is just a 5 minutes walk. However, our room was quite small and pretty dull. Overall, considering the average prices for Switzerland, it was a fair value for money.

I suspect that high summer must be when this place gets going - as quiet in May as it was in November, and perhaps understandably the staff were keen to get late guests out of the restaurant as quickly as they could. But the food was well cooked and exactly what a late traveller wanted - simple salad and pasta. The bar was as far from party atmosphere as one can get, short of raving alone. The view in the morning was good for restoration of the soul, as was the swimming pool. But the breakfast needs improvement: another hotel that needs to discover the value of an egg chef!

The best part about staying in this hotel is the beautiful view of the lake. Make sure to book a room with a few. Apart form the view the hotel is average. It is not too expensive (for Lugano), but the rooms are small and dull.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room with a view of the lake.

Stayed only one night and will certainly not stay there again. Except the lake view - I could no experience anything that was worth the price for the (very small) room. Dinner - exceptional expensive, but not really worth the price. Breakfast - I choose to have some other place around.
If you need to work, with having a table / desk, you will need to book a different room then I had.
Service - rather unfriendly, certainly not supportive.

This is the fourth time k have stayed at this hotel. It offers great value in a country where everything costs a lot more than in other European countries.

The view on the lake is beautiful, the front desk and wait staff are very helpful and friendly. The quality of food in the dining room is surprisingly good for a hotel restaurant. There is variety and quality in the lunch and diner menu. No need to venture out.

Hard to write a fair review of a hotel midweek in November. The view from the room over the water to the mountains was superb, especially in the diffuse early morning light; but the previous night in the restaurant, arriving late, had been bleak, through no fault of the hotel - it was just empty and joyless, as Novembers can be on business. Comfortable room, adequate if boring breakfast. I didn't have the courage to attempt the outdoor pool, lit at night, but should have done.

Be sure to reserve a room with a view of the Lake. The other rooms, facing the street, are long and narrow (I peeked inside one when the maids were cleaning), so be sure to spend the extra bucks and stay in the much larger rooms facing the lake -- for breathtaking views. It is evidently the only hotel with views of the lake, unobstructed by a street. The breakfasts were fine and they keep bringing you coffee, with no extra charge. Staff great too. The ambiance is a throw-back in time which is a plus for me (I dislike the slick yuppie-style places which are so rampant at the high end of the hotel scene). In fact, this hotel experience was memorable.
