The location is outstanding, particularly if you arrive in Lugano by train. There is a funicular that runs between the train station and the square on which the hotel is situated. I didn't know that when we arrived, and paid a taxi driver 18 Swiss Francs for the short ride to the hotel. On our departure, we took the funicular and it was -- I forget exactly, but I think it was less than two francs.
Two other things worth noting: 1) The staff is excellent; very helpful and friendly; 2) The breakfast served downstairs has lots of delicious options. Some hotels give you a muffin and a cup of coffee and call it breakfast -- not here. There are all kinds of good things to eat.
Oh, and one more thing that's great about this hotel -- it's a very short walk to the lake, which is beautiful. You'll like Lugano, especially if you stay here!More
