Score from 241 reviews Good
location was fantastic - easy access to walking the town, close to the lake and ferry trips, next door to COOP for food and drink
unfortunately the renovation work next door was noisy at times
Location very good Clean but rather old fashioned rooms WLAN reception good in building
Staff not flexible related to changing arrangement the last night (told me arrangements done via booking.com can not be changed Breakfast room is small. One day room was fulI and I had to wait for 10 mins until a table and chair was free
Location Breakfast Room size Cleanliness
Lots of street noise, but only because work is going on around hotel. Wouldn't normally be a problem I don't think.
Location is fantastic. A few steps from piazza della reforma and a block from the lake
Wifi didn't work in the room Pilows and bed sheets had a bad smell
very friendly and helpful staff
in the morning loud noise from construction work on the top of the hotel
Creative custom designer interior.
Comes into the years.
Very nice staff, helped with our incorrect reservation.
The interior is fairly old and modest.
The front desk employee was very helpful and friendly, as was the breakfast employee. The room was spacious and clean.
The traffic system in the town is very confusing for car drivers. We could see the hotel, but spent a long time driving about in circles trying to find somewhere to park. The hotel is on a pedestrian shopping road.
for the money you pay , you cannot find a better hotel location . steps away from the lake , close to the train station , close to all tourists cafes and restaurants . Lisa , the lady receptionist , was the most charming , polite and caring receptionist I ever met . I had a trouble with my camera and I lost all the photos I shot before I arrived in Lugano . While she was trying to help me resolve the problem , you can easily see the caring look on her face . I was so impressed by her attitude and would like to thank the hotel management for hiring people like Lisa .
I requested a quiet room when I was booking . what we got was the most annoying noisy room facing the street . we couldn't sleep even after midnight . you can hear the voices and the talks as if they were in the room itself .
Staff are super-friendly and helpful, and the location of the hotel is excellent. It's a few steps from the lakeside road, but on a pedestrian street that quiets down for the nights. The selection at breakfast was a positive surprise, plenty to choose from including yoghurts, bread with ham, cheese, jams etc, corn flakes, fruit.
As of August 2014, the building next door is undergoing renovations, which means there is no possibility to sleep past eight am on weekdays (huge amount of noise). Pillows in beds were so old that they provided no support.
the location in the city center.
Wooden decoration is very nicely made and very friendly helpful staff. No kettle in the room but we could borrow one from the reception. Nicely located near funicular station and just 1 min walk from the lakeside. We were pleasantly surprised when we got discount for the child occupant. Highly recommended.
Perfect location in Lugano. Reasonable priced compared to alternatives. Good breakfast with personal service.
Interior not up to date.
Location, friendly personnel, large bed, cleanliness
According to the offered standard, it is ok! Not 5 stars of course.
location, staff, breakfast, cleanliness
small room with shower opening directly into sleeping area
Quiet street location, but hard to drive to
No A/C - so watch out for summer
Clean, great location
Friendly staff. Good location.
Breakfast was a bit simple.
Location close to lake. Staff is very nice.
Noisy, small. Comforts come at high price in lugano/ no a/c.
The location is excellent. It is almost at the heart of the downtown. The staff members are kind.
Wireless internet connection was unstable. It is disconnected frequently.
The shower was in the bedroom.
This is well located close to the funicular, the shopping, the lake and the plaza in the pedestrian area. The room is small but clean, the staff exceptional. Continental breakfast. We were here for a music event, so just needed a place to sleep close to everything & this was perfect!
No negatives for us.
Location was very good, close to the train station, at a pedestrian street (full of shops) and at few meters from the lake. Breakfast was good .
