    Located on a very busy street with traffic noise.

    Great location, family owned property that is very clean. Owner is extremely helpful with information about Lugano. Nice breakfast buffet. Centrally located with bus stop out front and three stops from the train station. Can walk every where including art museum, waterfront, shops and cafes.

    The staff, as you would expect for a family owned business, were extremely helpful. The location is good, right next to the bus stops and ideally located for the train station and the lake. Our room was very quiet (away from the road). Lovely sunny balcony, spacious room, sunny breakfast terrace, continental breakfast offered plenty of choice

    The shower did not have a door or curtain, leaving the bathroom floor very wet.

    The location is perfect. The hotel is a short walk from the train station, and directly across from rental car companies. We arrived by train, and rented a car the following day to drive the amazing mountain passes in Switzerland. The hotel is also a 2 minute walk down to the lake and Piazzas with wonderful restaurants. Lugano became our favorite city in Switzerland. Pillows and bed were comfortable, and air conditioning was greatly appreciated😊

    Honestly, we have no complaints about the hotel or our experience staying there.

    It is a good location -- easy walking distance to City Center, Lake Lugano and LAC. Even hiked to the top of San Sal by foot from the door of the hotel. Great view of the lake from our room and much more quiet than being in the center of Lugano. The staff at Hotel Colorado are absolutely wonderful. Very accommodating and always pleasant!! The restaurant is delicious and on this trip, they helped us arrange a delightful prix fixe dinner for a large group celebration with little notice.

    We were going to franklin university and the location was great . A easy walk from the train station and also to the university. Everything was within a 10 min or so walk downtown Lugano was easy to get to .the staff had great information about the area including some shortcuts for getting around. The hotel was Clean! The room was comfortable the view from my room overlooking lake Lugano was beautiful. A breakfast was provided and was very nice a good selection of food great cappuccino. The room had a refrigerator and hot pot in it, the water pressure was good and the internet connection was great. Public transportation in the area is good but walking is easy just be prepared for hills bring good shoes as there is much to see and do in the area and the staff was full of information on how to get around and what to see. The staffs English was good but they also spoke Italian and German so communicating was never a problem. Lugano was a very friendly town and beautiful!

    I really enjoyed my stay at Colorado. The Single room is quite small but has all the service needed: TV, fridge, aircon easy to control (sometimes you never understand how they work ). They offered me a bike for free to visit the city. Was a bit cold but I went down to the lake and straight into the city (is a 5-minute ride ). After all, day out I enjoyed a meal in the hotel and the restaurant was really nice and the food good. I will be back for sure. Lovely stay

    This is a basic place, but a very good basic place. It seems family-run and non-corporate. I liked it. Also the wifi was freakin' awesome compared to so many hotels in Europe. Parking was also convenient. Showers were hot. It's quite easy to get to the lakefront from this hotel, just a few minutes walk and you will be there. There are also bike rentals available right at the hotel. Staff speaks Italian and German, some English.
