This hotel had some good qualities: the staff were pleasant, there was adjacent parking and it has a good location (although our room looked out on the dirty building next door). Unfortunately the rooms and decor are stuck in the 70's, which felt like when the linens and towels were last refreshed. The room had a safe, but it literally had no lock so was useless. Breakfast was okay, nothing special. Overall, and given Lugano prices, it is not four star quality and didn't feel like value for money.

Coming back to this hotel after over 30 years I was surprised to realize that not much had changed. The interior decoration had remained as it was in the end of the 70’s. The common areas were not cosy and as the weather was rainy did not offer us the option to stay in and relax in a friendly atmosphere. The room was spacious but the light available was as if provided by candles. When asked for an iron I was given an appliance which was aged very close to being a coal operated iron, obviously not functioning. The alternative offered was to go and iron my dress in the laundry room! Breakfast was ok. Some of the staff were very kind but some others totally indifferent and even forgot to provide a wake up call that a member of our group had asked for. Overall it was not good value for money.

I traveled here with my mom. This hotel is right on the water with great views. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. The breakfast buffet is essentially included in the rate and had eggs, fruit etc. The actually city center is a little bit of a walk but it along the beautiful shore line. If you have the Swiss pass you can just grab the bus directly in front of the hotel if you don’t want to walk. The bus stop is Paradiso, Debarcadero.

Stayed at this hotel last week 3rd July 2019, they gave me a fabulous room on the fourth floor. I requested a quiet room, and this was definitely quiet, I didn’t hear a thing. The hotel is central to everything, good location, the breakfast was very good and lots of choice. They have a restaurant and a bar, didn’t use these but looked good. The hotel staff are friendly and welcoming. Trust me this hotel is very good into comparison to others I saw.

Very lovely hotel. At first we were given a room in the back of the hotel for one night although we had requested a lake view, but were changed the next day to a room at the front overlooking the lake.
