My wife, our 2 children (4 and 7) and I stayed in one room. Stayed here March 19/20 in 2014. We would stay here again because:
Definately one of the nicest grounds one can find. Loads of space, Palmtreegarden, big 25m Pool with plenty of space to chill and for the children to play.
The room we had was pefect for a family because it had a bulkbed and a doublebed. The room is rather small and right under roof with a big window. There is a washing basin in the room.
This means you walk 2 flights up. No elevator. We travel light, so no problem.
Pots, Pans and Plates are available but the kitchen is tiny. Only one person may cook at a time. Beautiful dinning room with perfect Terrace which overlooks Lugano.
Showers were clean, Toilets had enough toiletpaper and were clean.
Enough parking space on the premises.
Room could be locked.
Very very nice breakfast area. We brought our own food, we even boiled our own water for tea and coffee.
I looked at some of the two bedroom rooms. *** star standard with a flat TV and the most stunning view from the rooms. Book No 32. it is at the corner and overlooks the lake and the city. Toilet and shower is in the room here.
The walls seem thin. When we were here there were hardly any people here. Only one oldish couple next door and we could hear them very well. We came home very late, so we were dead tired and slept well.
If you have a room next to reception... No sleep. We talked to girls which slept there and complained a lot.
We travel with a car so we could bring our food. Dombring as much food as you can for your stay in switzerland. Every country around is approx 30% cheaper.
That is why we did not try the breakfast. It seemed a bit on the expensive side from what we saw they offered.
The Hostel is right next to the trainstation. We could not hear a train once. We came with a car so we do not know how far it is to walk into the city.
Compare prices... IBIS is only 15 swiss francs more expensive than the room we had. It is a standard Hotel while this is a unique experience.
Good for couples, family, backpackers ( some of the rooms seem to be at the ground-floor which has more the touch of a basement)
