Hotel Federale, hotel in Lugano

This family-owned hotel is centrally located just a short walk from Lugano town center and its breathtaking lakeshore, and the famous Piazza Riforma with its many sidewalk cafés.

The breakfast at Hotel Federale offers an excellent variety of options, catering to different tastes with both continental and local dishes. The location is excellent, situated conveniently near the city center and cathedral making it easy to access major attractions and transportation. Overall, it provides a comfortable and satisfying experience for guests. My favorite part is having breakfast with the owner 3 days in a row. Dinner at Hotel Federale is generally well-regarded, offering a selection of well-prepared dishes that highlight local and international cuisine. The restaurant ambiance is pleasant and the service is attentive. It's a good choice for both a casual meal and a more formal dining experience. Huge bonus when the chef says Hi to all the guest's.

Hotel Delfino Lugano, hotel in Lugano

The family-run Hotel Delfino has a privileged location close to the lake shore and next to the pedestrian area which leads into the heart of the city of Lugano.

They agreed to change our room after allocating us the wrong one. We understood that this was deliberately done and if we had not complained they would have gotten away with it 😞😞😞 without considering we had paid more for our room. All staff are very friendly and welcoming.

    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.

    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.

    I booked 2 standard rooms for myself and my family. The rooms were not very big but were full of facilities. Even if I can't operate the Nespresso machine), I enjoyed my 1 night stay at the Novotel. And BIG applause go to the breakfast itself and the breakfast area. The variety of products you would expect only from 5-star hotels, wide area. Very easy access from the central station to the hotel and from the hotel to the city centre. I will definitely choose Novotel for my next trip to Lugano. Maybe even just for breakfast :)
