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. Located in a quiet spot halfway up a hill, the hotel is just a short 3-minute walk from the train station, and provides quiet rooms in a green corner of the city. Many rooms have a balcony view of Monte Bré, or overlook the town. The hotel is the perfect choice for both leisure and business travelers. Its restaurant offers elegant simplicity, and the bar is ideal for a relaxing evening drink. The hotel also features limited meeting facilities.

Couples in particular like the location – they rated it 9.4 for a two-person trip.
