“Excellent but no frills”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

Arrived here in early July with my boyfriend. We were staying for 2 nights as we travel around Europe.

When we arrived the staff were very friendly and explained everything we needed to know about our room, the wifi, etc.

Our room was very basic, but in turn also very clean and very comfy. It felt to me a bit like an IKEA display! The shower was very nice, and they provided towels. However, the toilet is kind of in a cupboard instead of its own room, so people with intimacy issues may want to avoid...

There were no plug sockets near the bed. There was a lot of light and lightswitches in the room, including from the bed.

The view was lovely and the hotel is in a good location too, just 5 minutes from the lake. However, don't come to Lugano Paradiso if you are planning on hitting the town, there are very few restaurants or shops or anything and everything closes early. You may be better off in main Lugano. The room was nice and quiet.

I would definitely recommend the room for a short stay.

This hotel is okay and clean but very very basic.

You can have a good night of sleep but you don't have shampoo or dryer.

I recommend but if you can pay a little more you should choose another option.

About the location is good for people I like to walk a little bit because is not in the city center.

Perhaps our expectations were high but we thought Ibis was already budget, then on arrival in Lugano we learnt there is an even lower level!
The location is great but there is nothing else that is positive about this hotel. Bed was horridly uncomfortable, no privacy for the toilet which didn't have a lock, noise from the corridor from every room and rude staff at the Main Ibis hotel, when they saw we were booked in at the budget hotel. All in all I would not recommend this hotel and next time I would pay the extra to stay in either the Novotel or Main Ibis hotel (which are all next to each other!).

This budget hotel is in a very convenient location two blocks from Lake Lugano, and good value if you're on a budget. The room was a little strange, because despite being a couple, our room had a bunk bed (double on bottom and single on top). The shower was part of the room, not self-contained. And the toilet had a door, but it was more like a stall. But the room had all we needed, except for complimentary toiletries and a refrigerator. There is a Migros down the street, so we bought food there instead of buying the hotel's breakfast. Normally this would be an average 3-star rating, but the man at the check-in counter was so friendly and helpful, he gets a star of his own.
