The pool on the roof was quite shallow and better suited to sitting in and cooling off than to swimming. (There is, however, a 2-lane lap pool in the lower level of the hotel.)
This hotel was perfectly suited for our group just one bus stop away from the train station in Lugano (Bus 2 from Garetta to Funicolare S. Salvatore). The hotel was extremely clean, comfortable and well laid out. The staff was also quite friendly and helpful. We had breakfast included in our room rate, which was quite good (scrambled eggs, bacon, cheese, bread, cereal, any kind of coffee/espresso, juice, pastries, yogurt, fruit). The hotel is right at the base of the lift for San Salvatore lift where you can get a beautiful view of all Lugano. It's also perfectly situation on the 2 bus line to take you around to Lugano central, or if you prefer to walk it's a breathtaking 15 minute stroll around the lake to get to the center. I have nothing negative to say about this hotel on any account.
