It was good to stay in a traditional style Swiss Hotel. The location was excellent-near the old town ,the landing stage for the lake steamers and the funicular to the stations.. All the staff were always ready to help and provide information about the region.. I read hotel review

A nice 3 star hotel with charm. The hotel has a great location, it is not far to the town center and the lake promenade is almost on the doorstep. Free wi-fi in the lobby, in the room, it must be paid. In Lugano prevails parkplatzmangel, so you must still additional costs to calculate. read hotel review

Am quite back and forth torn. I think the hotel not cheap. It is just ageing. The carpets smell musty, especially in the room and at least our room (228) was so badly soundproofed, like i have never worse experienced. Breakfast had everything i need. Staff was very nice and the location is of course very good. We are going to come again? May be, if the alternative again manned is... But my 1st choice in Lugano is this hotel not. read hotel review

Wonderful stay

Such a warm welcome by the reception staff, especially a lady called Cornelia. She had a good sense of humour and was very explicit with her information. The rooms were clean and tidy with ample wardrobe space. Breakfast was also very enjoyable and once again the staff were so polite and helpful. Food selection was wide and good quality. My only minor complaint was to have to pay for Wu-Fi in the room. Seems so petty at these prices. read hotel review

    We were blessed with amazing weather. We also found that the shops, restaurants etc. were very friendly. We shall come back to Lugano again certainly and will look to stay at this hotel again.
