    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.

    The hotel itself is in Lugano Paradiso, it is a little bit far away from Lugano Centre. But I would recommend to stay in Paradiso since it is near the lake with splendid view. In booking the photos seem quite old-fashioned but in reality it is much better. The room and facilities were new. The room and bathroom were spacious. We were served fresh breakfast. The lady who worked there was very friendly and helped us a lot in providing blankets and sockets.

    We requested a balcony with a Lake Lugano view and it was perfect, however there is a main road between our room and the lake. We like to keep the windows open, so there was traffic noise, but it did not bother us. The hotel was a quick walk to the train station and the boat cruises were right across the street. Restaurants everywhere and shopping galore. Breakfast was very good.

    The hotel was OK but we just felt that overall it was not great value for money. We know it was Switzerland and in an expensive city but we have stayed in ones that are better but cheaper. We ate in the restaurant at night and this along with the breakfast was fine. We cannot fault the staff, both at reception and in the restaurant. They could not have been more helpful.
