    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.

    Lugano is beautiful! Walking by the lake, sitting by it in chairs provided for free to the public, taking a boat ride, riding the funicular up to the mountain to see the views, all great! City bus transportation excellent.

So Many points of interest to see, we unfortunately didn’t have time to do it all, but we enjoyed taking the funicular to Monte Bre, boat excursion to Melide, train to Bellizone to see the castles… Guess we’ll need to come back to see the rest!

    Absolutely fantastic stay, from start-to-finish! The location was perfect, with ample on-site parking. There is free public transport available, included in the price of the room and a bus stop outside the hotel, with the bus taking around 10 minutes to reach the centre. The rooms was clean and comfortable, with air conditioning. The staff were fantastic and the 1950s style diner on site was amazing! Lugano was the most beautiful place that we stayed at, in Switzerland and if we came back again, this is where we would want to stay.

    This hotel close to the main train station shares it’s lovely grounds with a hostel. Our room had a balcony but no curtains across the glass doors. Fortunately, there were shutters that could be closed to block the morning light and some of the train station noise. The bathroom is small and bath gel is provided only in little pouches. The bed is comfy and they provided an extra pillow on request. There a small frig and welcome AC in this warm part of Switzerland.

    The room was super clean, the bed was comfy, we had a great sleep. The staff is friendly and helpful. The hotel is conveniently located. The breakfast offer was quite rich (Just bear in mind that it is the Italian one, so mostly sweet things). We stayed for one night and after high season, though. I probably would look for a bigger room if I was about to stay in Lugano for longer holiday.
