“Ibis Budget is brand new!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

We stayed at Ibis Budget, which is part of the new Novotel and Ibis Hotels. They are all connected by hallways and stairs. I chose this hotel for a quick one night layover between trains. Basically, I chose it as it was new and low priced for Switzerland. It is very basic. There is no shampoo or hair dryer, so although I was pleased to have ac, I left with my hair wet on the train the next day! The beds are hard and the sheets are rough, maybe 200 threadcount, but they were extremely clean, like no one had ever been in the room. The shower sits in the middle of the room, so dont expect privacy and the toilet door does not lock. If you know to expect accomodations similiar to a travel trailer, you will be fine. The hotel was quiet and our room overlooked the pool to the Novotel, which you do not have access to. The breakfast for 11Euros was fine, and I was real pleased to have coffee waiting for me instead of going elsewhere. I found the stay to be an adventure, but my husband thought it was too basic. The area around the hotel is nice and we felt very safe here. The check in was overwhelming for the young lady working the desk, and she could use some help with all the questions from guests, but hopefully, they will work it out since it has only been open 2 months!

Room Tip: Ask to overlook the Novotel pool!

Lugano can get really hot. My first instinct when booking a room in this area is that the hotel MUST have air condition. I found this Ibis Budget at Paradiso-Lugano. Although there is no a/c switch as such, but you can definitely feel the comfortable air once you are inside the establishment and your room. They controlled the a/c centrally however they didn't really blast it. So it was nice, and comfy. The location is also great. Within 10 minutes of walking distance from the Lugano center.

The room is well kept clean and neat...A very simple room . You DO however, need to bring your own shampoo as they only provide small soaps.

For under USD80/night, you can't beat this price in this touristy location !!

Stayed 5 nights at the Ibis Budget. Staff is very friendly and helpful for a one star hotel. Rooms are very basic but that is all I needed and do not want to pay for more that I would no use anyway. Beds are comfortable and I slept very well with the windows shut. Wifi available foc and connection is reasonably fast. The friendly staff made my stay very enjoyable and I will return.
