    It was okay
    Good location to the lake and about a 10 minute walk to Lugano. Hotel a bit old but room was clean. Breakfast was limited in choice and probably not worth paying a lot extra for. Okay for a night away but probably not for a week.

    Good location, good price
    Good location, only 3 minutes walk from Lugano-Paradiso train station, 1 minute to San Salvatore funicular and 3 minutes walk down to lake. Walk to downtown Lugano is approx. 15 minutes on beautiful lake promenade. Our hotel room was very modern and clean and the staff was very friendly. Great hotel for a good price.

    Lovely Lugano
    Room sold as 2 Queen beds but were actually 2 single beds. Hotel very clean and nice. Additional taxes applied resort and town visitor plus €10 per night for car park. Stunning area 2 min walk to lake and 15 min walk to town centre.
