“Clean and worth the value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Stayed here with friends. Rooms were small but very clean. Hotel was quiet and the front desk staff were very helpful. Be sure to bring your own toiletries. Very close to the lake and there are some great places nearby for a bite to eat including the grocery store. Main center is a 15 minute walk. Great place if you just need something basic and clean.

Ibis Budget is a simple no frills hotel, we had a room with a view of the lake which was gorgeous and made the stay all the better. The location is good, if you don't mind walking a little, it is a beautiful 15 minute walk along the lake to Lugano centre. The room was clean and well maintained. The price was reasonable especially for Switzerland, the room is cheaper the the Ibis and Novotel hotels nextdoor and I cannot imagine the rooms offer a great deal more to compensate for the much higher prices.
The breakfast is good value for money at 11 francs, there are cereals, croissants (gipfelli) fresh rolls, cheese, ham, yogurt, fruit, coffee, hot chocolate etc.

Things to note; when we arrived there was no real queue to check in however as there is only one person at reception when a few people check in at the same time it can take a while. Also the lift gets very busy during breakfast time so you may find yourself waiting a few minutes to catch the lift.

I would recommend this hotel for short break its a cheap and cheerful option

Bus stop (Line 2) to the hotel is directly in front of Lugano train station. About 15mins ride to the hotel. There's a supermarket diagonally opposite the road and a kebab stall opposite. It does not feel like a budget hotel at all. Very clean & got a view of the mountains & the sea. Love my stay here.

Internet ok. Clean ok. Hard to find the way from the parking to the room! Press the parking doors´ button. Take the elevator press 0! Then change elevator passing through Ibis with your luggage!
Price acceptable only in Switzerland!
Be careful adaptor for using laptop ( no ordinary plug in the room) is sold in the reception's vending machine for 15 Swiss franc!
No fritz or closet. No door lock for wc! Bring shampoo and hairdryer!
Then above your head will be another baby bed!
For Lugano is an acceptable option!

The location is very good, easy to find. The building is quite new and it is the home of a Novotel, an IBIS and an IBIS Budget hotel at the same time. Parking is available for a fee, but it is worth paying for as there is no parking space available on the streets.
Check-in is easy and quick as usual in every Accor Hotels. The rooms are spacious, clean and really nice with a shower, a comfy bed and a flat screen TV with a lot of channels to choose from.
Soap, glasses and clean towels are provided every day.
And for the first time I was able to open the window in an Accor Hotel. This has never happened before :)
I had a really good sleep, the bed is big, very comfortable and the room is quiet.
Breakfast is available from 6:00am until 12:00. I had breakfast at about 11. By that time most of the guests have probably had their breakfast so the table is quite empty. You just need to ask and everything is provided straight away.
The selection is good, you have cereals, croissant, buns, bread, jam, eggs, cheese, ham etc. Just as usual. Coffee and tea as well as fruit juices also available. I missed scrambled eggs but it is something you can live with.
All in all, worth the money, really nice hotel, very friendly staff, a huge thank you to Marco at the reception. Definitely recommended.

Room Tip: Try to ask for an upper floor room, nice view on the lake and the mountains.

We stayed as a family for 1 night on our way to another place. The budget hotel was real value for money. The rooms were small but comfortable and clean. There was a double bed in each room with a bunk bed on top for any kids (above 6 yrs old only).
The only odd thing about the hotel was that the shower stall was next to the bed with a translucent glass door so you couldnt shower in privacy. Also the shower stall and the toilet both didnt have any locks. The sink was open in the room.
Otherwise the room was fine. There is no room service for food or phones in the room. Wifi was free and available in all the rooms.
Location was great. Very close to the center. And also very close to the Paradiso train station. We got off at the Paradiso train station and it was a 5 minute walk from there with easy directions (lots of clear signs showing the way). Also close to bus stops.
Good deal for the money and ok for a short stay if you are not planning to stay for too long in the room.
