Hotel Dischma, hotel in Lugano

Good location and friendly staff. The family members loafing around and the somewat old-fashioned interiors reminded me of family vacations in the 70s, so much nicer than the impersonal sterility of the large chains. They facilitated my late decision to include breakfast without a problem. And all that for a very competitive price!

    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. 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.

    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.

    We were pleasantly surprised by the large size of the suite at the top of the hotel, perfect for the 3 of us without feeling crowded during our stay. Views were lovely. Location was excellent, and great for the activities we had planned: perfect for strolling into Lugano, but also close to the funicular for Monte San Salvatore and also a spa down the road that we had booked into. We loved the illy coffee machine provided and the nice welcome touches. Housekeeping were always great & kept our coffee pods topped up.

Breakfast was excellent, and the position of the hotel is perhaps the best in Lugano, the view from the room and the breakfast area is wonderful.
