Reviewed 22 August 2012

We stayed here for one night in July and one night in August en route to and from Florence. The hotel was very comfortable. We had one teenager with us and the room was fine. He was most impressed with the window between the room and bathroom becoming frosted or transparent at the flick of a switch -"cool".
The staff were friendly and helpful.
The pool was a welcome relief after a long journey and clever use of photographs of the lake projected onto the side wall next to the pool made good use of the side of the site. A pity the pool was closed at 8pm.
The hotel is very convenient to the lakeside and Lugano town centre. The underground parking on site was safe and convenient.
We did not eat at the hotel but the menu looked inviting and there were numerous guests eating in the restaurant overlooking the pool.
We felt this was the best Novotel we have stayed in.

Overall this hotel was great but the breakfast service still needs improving. We arrived at around 9am and expected to wait for a table as the hotel was very busy. However, we ended up waiting for much longer than necessary because the lady in charge kept ushering other people through ahead of us and didn't seem concerned when we brought it to her attention. Also, the quality of the food was quite bad - most of the hot food was cold and the choice wasn't that great.

We spent a couple nights mid July 2012 with family. The decoration is brand new and meets the consistent typical Novotel style; room for 3 peaople was not much. The hotel room is not too exciting but you always know where is what you need. Service is okay and the pool area is quite nice. It's a pity that there doesn't seem to be enough parking space for hotel guests; I had to drive all the way down the underground parking and then leave it because of no space, and park along the street. Minor details to improve considering that the hotel opened very recently. The hotel is located at 30 mins walking distance from the centre of Lugano.
It's a nice location and reasonably priced, considering that in Lugano hotels are not an easy matter and tend to be often decadent luxury and that's what nobody needs these days.

The room is clean and large enouogh for 3 persons.
Nice decorated and the bed is comfortable. Better than the other traditional hotels in the area at the same price.
There is area for the improvement of with the infrastruction. The window between the bathroom and the sleeping area is still quite transparant even with the turning on of the flimsy. This would not be too acceptable to the Asian family,.
Lttle area that the room service would need to be improved as we have only two cups in the room for 3 persons staying.
