Very nice hotel in Lugano! Very service minded and friendly staff. Very nice pool and garden! It`s close to the railwaystation and the city center. You can walk from the railwaystation with luggage. Nice breakfast. I would recommend this hotel!

They have there very helpful staff that can help you in anything you want, location is very near from traim station which contains the funiclaire that takes you to the city center,
You can reach the city center on your feet but in your way back it is difficult as u have to go up through the streets which are amazing to walk in

Location:

While an almost next to train station location generally sounds unappealing, this very attribute is a BIG plus for this hotel. One comes out of the trains, looks at the end of the station and one see's the hotel sign. There is NO intrusion of the trains noise in the hotel, the convenience of getting to the hotel is fabulous and once inside the tree covered hotel complex, its super!

Its an easy & very pleasant amble down to the lake area - a nice church and lake viewpoint comes along the way. A bit of a climb back (really not much) there is the funicular from the city center right back to the train station for CHF 1.1 (just about $1)

Service/Lobby: Friendly, friendly, friendly. Btw those who do not want to climb the 5-6 stairs up to the lobby with their luggage can take the direct entry to the hotel (left of the stairs) and take the elevator up one floor.

Rooms: We had a superb room #28 which has 2 balconies - one side with a great lake view and the other side with the equally super view of the gardens and the pool. Ask for rooms with a direct pool view for having a feeling of totally being away from a city; ask for the higher floor right corner rooms for a lake view or #28 and the direct rooms above (#38 etc) for a composite view. The deluxe rooms are very spacious, air-conditioned and with very nice bathrooms. Lots and lots of power sockets all around.

Pool/Gardens: Just an amazingly nice setup. Little steps through the back garden take you to the higher level pool. Its a big pool with lots of chairs around and small bar as well. Its a single depth level pool that makes swimming cool. Or just amble through the gardens and go behind the hotel complex and its nice to see the other mansions there.

Breakfast: Ample and tasty - its worth it!

For 200 CHF, this hotel was a bargain. We loved it, the kids loved it and if we go to Lugano again, this is where we will be staying!

This light and airy hotel, with a wonderful ,gracious staff, and air conditioned rooms over looking either the lake or the gardens,pool,and vineyard can not be beat. First, the views from the front or back of the main building are lovely,next the rooms,while small, are spotless and
and comfortable. At first I thought because we were on the front of the hotel,we would be bothered by the trains which do run at the bottom of the hill in front of the hotel, but the greenery, the the angle of the tracks, and the ability to close the windows and have the a/c made it possible to
enjoy our stay. It was not a problem. Since we had a balcony we could sit and enjoy the view of the lake and the town below. The staff could not have been more helpful.I needed to do some ironing and since the main building did not have an ironing room, I was directed to the more informal hotel and student hostel
on the property.I also needed some sewing thread,which was quickly produced with a smile. The large dinning room on the front of the hotel serves the best breakfast we had during our entire stay in Switzerland, and for the Swiss National holiday glasses of Prosecco were offered at breakfast! The staff in the dinning room were friendly and professional. The hotel has been in the same family for over 100 years, and it is obvious how much love and care has gone into making this a very special place to stay. Oh, an excellent Merlot, from the hotel vineyard ,is
served at the bar or in the dinning room.....all pretty civilized I`d say!

Room Tip: Front or back of the main building will be a good choice.
