“Good in all aspects”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

We are a family of 3 and spent 2 nights in an air-conditioned, ensuite room with a balcony and view to the lake. The hotel is perfectly located, very close to the touristic places, congress centre, Parco Civico, etc.. and yet we had a very quiet stay. We were lucky enough to park in one of the few slots the hotel has right at the entrance. The staff was really warm and welcoming, and always helpful. The room was basically equipped, sufficient for our stay. WiFi worked OK. The highest point was, in our opinion, the possibility of taking our dinner (very well-priced compared to Lugano standards!) to our balcony and enjoying it during the sunset while looking at the lake views. We fully recommend this hotel for its location, staff and moderate price.

Room Tip: If traveling in summer, it's worth to upgrade to a room with air conditioned and balcony.

Dear Jesus S,

thank you for you kind and detailed review. It was a pleasure to read, that you and your kids enjoyed your stay so much. We are happy, when we were able to fulfill your expectations and wishes. In particular it is nice to read, that we could create a special moment on the balcony for you.

Why not coming back in winter time? Natale in Piazza at Lugano is always worth visiting. We are waiting for you!

We stayed here 6 nights and felt very welcome.The location is awesome: just a few minutes from the lake and the city center. Service was great and it is very convenient that there is a restaurant at the hotel with very good value for the money. Even room service is available on request.

The hotel offers at least one wheelchair accessible room with a roll-in shower and grab handles at the toilet. For large wheelchair users or those with big bellies the room in front of the toilet and in the elevator might be a little limited, though.

Hotel was clean, staff proficient. Location is great, otherwise adequate book if price is more important than atmosphere. Breakfast was good, with extras for purchase. Front desk provides hair dryer and converters for no charge.

Room Tip: Some rooms have their own bathrooms, others share.

I really enjoyed my stay in the hotel because of the wonderful opportunity to leave my food in the fridge, have awesome breakfast (quite rich too) and amazing staff that were so helpful in everything I have asked for (extra hanger for my clothes, ironing table, adapter etc.). Definitely recommend you to stay there. You won't be disappointed.

We spent two nights here recently, and can recommend it wholeheartedly. We had two adjoining rooms for us and our children, and everybody was very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious, and the staff was always very accommodating. Plus the location is amazing, right in the middle of Lugano, just off the lake.

We enjoyed our stay at this friendly hotel that's on a major Lugano street right beside the historic district and a short walk to the lake. Restaurants, bars, and shops surround the store on all sides. We spent 2 nights in an economy room and 2 nights in a comfort room. Do yourself a favour and go for the more expensive rooms--they're really modern and bright. Ours had been recently renovated and looked brand new. The budget room was OK and no one else seemed to be using the washrooms and showers across the hall, but the room was a bit basic though large. The restaurant is OK for breakfast, but the one dinner we had there was very mediocre and the place felt a bit depressing. I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: Go for the more expensive rooms--they're worth it and have ceiling fans for warmer weather. Room...

I had a room with shared bathroom.

reception was really nice, both on check in and check out.

Room was pretty decent sized, light colours, OK double bed. Smallish LCD screen high up above a wardrobe, with a wide array of channels.
two showers outside, clean and no waiting time (but I am really early).

breakfast not brilliant, so/so OJ, limited selection. I'd hoped for better.
