    Take the cable cart to the top of the hill - St.

    Take the cable cart to the top of the hill - St. Salvatore and if you have good weather - there awaits you and this is not an exaggeration by any means - one of the most amazing views I have ever seen in my life. Also we took a boat ride along the lake, which without any discount is about 40CHF for 2 hours ride, which is also very nice. There is a half tax discount if you have it for Switzerland. Miniature museum is nice as well. Lugano over all I think will stay in my heart :)

    2 nights would have been sufficient for us.

    2 nights would have been sufficient for us. We took a day trip to Bellinzona and visited most of the popular attractions and had time to spare. We are not shoppers or people who like to hang out next to a pool and relax. If you are that type of person, the lake is beautiful and the shopping options are abundant.

    Lugano is an exceptional peaceful small city where you can enjoy the best views of the lake. Much better place to be compared to Como the busy crowded city. We totally loved this city and all the things that offers from good food and pleasant historic buildings as well as friendly people.

    All the staff were friendly and helpful, from breakfast staff to house keeping, especially the gentleman at reception who gave us recommendations about visiting Morcote. Location was great, arrived by train to Paradiso which is a 5 min walk to the hotel. Its also a short walk to the lake, where we were at one end and could walk lakeside to Lugano to the other side. Also conveniently located next to the funicular to the top of the mountain for 360 panoramic views.

    The view is the selling point of this hotel! It is a very relaxing experience to sit on the balcony and see the city underneath lighting up for the night life. The room is in good size and the balcony is in a comfortable size too. The bus right in front of the hotel that leads to the center of Lugano and the scenery on the route is quite enjoyable.
