ibis budget Lugano Paradiso, hotel in Lugano

Only 215 yards from Lake Lugano, Ibis Budget Lugano Paradiso features free Wi-Fi, a bar, and a restaurant. The center of Lugano is just under a mile away.

**Disappointing Experience at Ibis Budget Lugano Paradiso** My recent stay at Ibis Budget Lugano Paradiso was highly disappointing. The room lacked even the most basic amenities expected from a hotel; there were no slippers, soap, or even towels provided. Furthermore, the air conditioning was non-functional, making the room uncomfortably warm, and the electrical outlets for charging devices were scarce. The cramped space of the room also resulted in a lack of ventilation, leaving it feeling suffocating and reminiscent of a prison cell. Considering the exorbitant price charged for such substandard conditions, staying at this hotel is simply unjustifiable. I strongly advise against it and would not recommend it even to my worst enemy.

Acquarello Swiss Quality Hotel, hotel in Lugano

The Hotel Acquarello is located in the Old Town of Lugano, right at the lower terminus of the funicular connecting the center to the main railway station.

The location and the service are both good. For the area, the pricing is pretty good. The size of the room is decent. It’s sweet of them to give you chocolate upon arrival. The only product they provide in the bathroom is nice.

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 location was great because it is only a few minutes walk to the train station as well as city center. We took the Bernina Express bus from Tirano to Lugano. From the Lugano bus station, cross the street and walk along the sidewalk towards the train station until you see the ramp that leads to the hotel. The hotel sign is hard to see as it is blocked by overgrown trees. The room we stayed at was not spacious enough for us and our luggages but we didn’t mind it since we stayed there only for one night and it’s a very well maintained and clean hotel. Breakfast was just the typical Swiss breakfast including but not limited to assorted bread, cheeses, bacon, scrambled eggs, cut up fruits.

    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.

    We stayed in the apartment, which is two separate bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living and dining area and a full kitchen. The views are breathtaking; the staff tripped over to help us in any way they could; next door was a Grotto, and the pool area is AMAZING - this is a fabulous place to stay in Paradiso/Lugano. There is onsite parking suitable for larger cars. Great value for a family with a completely luxurious feel. Wouldn't stay anywhere else now that we have discovered it.

    Everything was fabulous, we loved the old-world charm of the hotel, the welcome was warm, and I think they discreetly upgraded us to one of the best rooms. 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. I hope the family will continue to maintain this historic and delightful hotel.
