Score from 192 reviews Excellent 8.6/10
plenty of space - as a five person family being in one room is a bit of a squash, but we were given two connecting rooms so we all had plenty of space and a little balcony. Staff were very friendly, it felt like a well run small hotel, and felt more luxurious than the three stars would suggest. It was also nice to be able to request a kettle in our room, to make tea when we needed it. Only regret was that we only stayed one night, it would have been nice to stay for longer.
The homey feel of classic furniture and decorations. Breakfast is very Italian while the warm service of the dining staff is a plus. The location of Hotel is great short walking distance in between the train station and the downtown area.
This was our third time staying at Hotel Federale. Great location, nice breakfast & friendly, helpful staff. Very clean. We had a great family room with a lovely view. We'll be back a 4th time for sure!
The fit out for the studio apartment was good. It included all the necessaries - small fridge, microwave, stove, A/C and sufficient crockery, cutlery, table and chairs, luggage rack, cleaning solutions etc. The room was quite spacious. The apartments are in a separate building below the hotel and are easy to get to from the station with wheeled luggage. The hotel staff kindly gave us a lift up to the station with our luggage - otherwise the trek up to the station would be onerous as it is quite steep.
Location was great, room was very clean and large enough for our family of four.
Dinner at the outdoor restaurant is very good and the owners are super friendly. The staff drove the 3 of us to the train station for free. The room is spacious and has an excellent view of Lugano especially at night with stars in the sky.
Breakfast is too simple.
We LOVED our studio apartment and the location was great - independence in a central but peaceful quarter. We are regulars to Lugano, and this is the best accommodation we have found so far.
Shower curtain - out of place in such a modern apartment.
Valet service is as standard. Location. Free wifi. Great view from the 5th floor balcony
Finding the hotel - very difficult at night, the turning is not at all obvious.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is very well situated (close to the train station) which was very convenient for me. Moreover, the hotel & room were very quiet. It is also close to shops, restaurants and the lakefront. It was raining hard but that was not a problem since the hotel had an adequate supply of umbrellas for the guests in need.
It would be good to have a separate room to store luggage the day of departure.
The Hotel is so close to the train station. We crossed a pedestrian bridge and then walked down beautifully landscaped ramps to the hotel entrance. We had a family room on the 6th floor. It was quite spacious and immaculately clean. There were two large dormer windows which offered different views of the surrounding mountains. An addition large window in the bathroom. It was an easy walk to the lakeside/center of town. Very polite, helpful staff. I would love to stay again, at this beautiful hotel.
Close to train station and far from noisy areas, surrounded by green spaces, staff was very helpful,
Lovely terrace for breakfast. Nice room.
No bathroom accessories. No kettle.
Very friendly staff - Alicia and Thomas were very professional, cooperative, and friendly. Spoke English and were enthusiastic in helping..
A friendly, old-fashioned type of hotel. Lovely views of Monte Bre from our bedroom.
The hotel staff are friendly and was very helpful. The hotel is very close to train station and easy to access. It is also near the city, only a few minutes by walking.
Internet access rather slow. The bed matrass is a bit too soft.
Room was fantastic - great location at the top of the plaza.
Excellent staff, very helpful and friendly. Location was great, close to everything.
- a bit noisy
The location provided easy access to the city center and transportation. Lovely quite location. Courteous Front Desk staff accommodated request to stay in the same room when booking an additional night stay returning a few days later. Luggage storage available day of departure. Welcoming and pleasant Dining staff added to the fine breakfast served at the start of the day. With an excellent location and excellence in service provided by Front Desk and Dinning we will be returning guests.
convenient localization, view on the lake and the city, helpfull staff
Amazing location great place to stay whilst in Lugano !
Staff - friendly, helpful Perfect location
Price is a bit premium.
Fantastic! Beautiful, well maintained building. Renovated nicely. Close to everything & great breakfast yum yum
We stayed in the Annex at the top of the pedestrian street leading up from the old town to the station. It is an attractive, renovated old building and the room was located above the Pasta & Pesto pasta shop. This is also a restaurant, but closes at 7.00 pm and is shut on Sundays and holidays.
1) It was impossible to sleep between midnight and 5.00 am on Friday and Saturday due to dunk clubbers / party goers shouting in the street outside. There was no double glazing. 2) No attempt was made to clean the room or empty the bins during our 3 night stay, which cost CHF 549. 3) At checkout nobody enquired whether our stay had been good, bad or indifferent.
Near the train station and the old town.
