Everything about this hotel was excellent. I had looked at other hotels on the lake front, but the location of this one was much better as elevated, so from the balcony in my bedroom I could sit facing with a view onto the lake and mountains. The breakfast was very good with great selection of fruits and everything really fresh. A little bit out from centre of town, but when you can walk by the lake on way into town.....not really a problem. The staff were so helpful and very friendly and it had a lovely family feel about it and not as impresonal as some larger hotels. Lovely pool and great sun loungers and a very chilled out vibe there.
Would definitely book Hotel Delfino again. I

Room Tip: We had booked a double but changed to a twin.....much bigger and had a fabulous view of the lake and pool.

The hotel was quite nice, clean and pleasant with great customer service. The single room was one of the largest that I experienced in Europe and having a balcony was a nice treat. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The rooms are air conditioned which made for a great and comfortable night's sleep. Some of the bathrooms have been updated, although mine had not. Breakfast was enjoyable and quite fulfilling.

The only downside to this hotel is that it is a bit removed from the center of the city and from the action. It does require a bit of a walk uphill to get back from anything you might want to do in the area.

Spacious single room (with a double bed) plus a good-size wardrobe, a small fridge and a small balcony with a little bit of lake view.

Good buffet breakfast in the restaurant (included in the room rate) with a variety of chooses (cold cut, cheese, boiled egg, cereal, bread, fresh fruit salad, etc.). Drinks, lunch and dinner are also served in the restaurant with good service!

The hotel is located in Paradiso area, within 10 min walk to the funicular station to Mount San Salvatore and also to the 2 supermarkets nearby. Though not located within the Lugano city centre, the city centre is easily reachable by 20 min walk or bus #2 with station right in front of the hotel. Bus #2 also passes the Lugano train station before arriving at the city centre.

Friendly and helpful staff - I always asked for travel advices from the reception every morning and they always gave me detailed advices! Also with the help of the shelf of travel leaflets right in front of the hotel reception !

Definite recommend this hotel to all who come to visit Lugano or Ticino region!

Good clean hotel with average size rooms and with a very good buffet breakfast. Highly priced for its position. Not much around hotel and would look for something else closer to town and pay a bit more.

Delfino Hotel in Lugano is a very friendly hotel. Every employee is aware that real customer-value is service, attention, hospitality and affinity.
Quality of food, whether it is breakfast, lunch or dinner is tasteful and excellent. (buono) The rooms are very nice and very clean.
The area of the hotel is quiet but 10 minutes walking you are downtown.
For young to old the place to be.
