I love this hotel.
For starters: very easy to get to. I rode the train into Lugano then took the funicular down to the bottom and the hotel is literally right there. Great for luggage. The pedestrian old town area with restaurants, bars, banks/cash machines, high end shopping starts at the foot of the hotel entrance. The lake and public transportation are maybe five minutes walk away.
My hotel room was QUIET. It was WONDERFUL. I was even directly across from the elevators and yet I heard no one. The curtains were like black out curtains. It was the best sleep I had during my entire two week vacation through Switzerland. Also, plenty of electrical sockets for devices and the mini bar offered FREE beverages (no alcohol of course). Great water pressure, shower offered different types of shower heads which was nice and relaxing.
Also, free wifi. THANK YOU HOTEL. And free appetizer snacks during happy hour that were quite tasty. And the breakfast buffet? OHMY. Piles of food. PILES. Coffee, fresh juices, teas, white and dark chocolate drinks and pieces of chocolate, several cereal selections, eggs, hot meat, several types of sliced meats and cheeses, fresh grilled veggies, some salad options, fresh fruits, several types of bread including gluten free crackers (thank you hotel!), several types of dessert pastries and cakes (YUM)...there's a lot of food to choose from and each day was a little bit different so you didn't get bored with the selections. And it was all GOOD.
So for the price? You can't do better. Excellent location, excellent food, lots of wonderful free items that surprised me, very nice and lovely staff to help with your needs and tourist info, easy walking to wonderful parts of the city or transportation to get where you want to go. Just lovely. I'd stay here again in a heart beat.
