    The location is amazing, right in front on Lugano’s lake and at the start of a fashionable street with well-known brands. The hotel has a pool and a good restaurant, there is car parking however it is a bit small. Perfect stay if you want to spend...

    We were allowed early check in as our room was ready. The pool is fabulous. The breakfast was exceptional. Staff was highly professional. The shared areas outside the rooms were elegant and welcoming where you can relax and read and enjoy a drink....
