one night in Lugano and this hotel was great. Well located. If you are arriving by train, don't panic. Walk out the station and in front of you is the funicular--it looks like a little subway car. For 1.10 francs, it will take you down the hill and stop right in front of the hotel. Do not take a cab like we did--20 francs to take us down the hill. Best breakfast we had in Europe, included in the price. Nice people, great service. There are lots of other places to stay in Lugano but this one is ideal--easy to walk around the city, close to the lake promenade and high end shopping, lots of restaurants and no need to drag bags around the city looking for your hotel. It is right there, at the bottom of the funicular.
