    dinner- prepared room service for us even though not really offered...were very accomodating.

  • Older travelers

    We were treated to an upgrade by the person at the front desk..she was so delightful! The hotel is so close to the train station, better directions should be given by Booked.net about reaching the hotel...its so close. The staff was always so accommodating and the breakfast was delightful.

    THe reception area could be updated.

    The hotel is very close to the train station which made taking day trips easy. It is clean and neat. All of the hotel staff were very helpful and kind. Breakfast was yummy.

    The shower pan was large enough but the shower curtain cut across the space. There was plenty of hot water, but you had to fight with the shower curtain.

    Great location just below train station with a great view of the lake. Rooms large and clean with views and staff friendly. Breakfast a good value.

    When we arrived and realised the size of our room for 3 adults and a baby they were more than accommodating when we asked to get a bigger room.

    position, very close to the train station and to the center of the city

    high price , hard to find even with GPS as there is only one way to come to the hotel and the sign on the street is too small and hard to be seen, especially at night

  • Family with children
    9.2

    The location was excellent and the staff was very friendly. Easy walking distance to the center of the city. The restaurant had good food. We got two top floor adjoining rooms with only 5-days advance booking.

    We called the hotel for reservations one hour before we first discovered bookings.com and were told there was no availability. We then found the same hotel on bookings.com and found availability! I guess that's a good thing for bookings.com.

  • Family with children
    9.6

    It's a great hotel, only 3 minutes walking distance to the train station and 5 minutes to city center and shopping area. It's a family hotel but not small. The room is comparatively big and comfortable. Design is classic but modern. Nice balcony with wonder view on the hills and city. We all had comfortable stay. Also the staff are very friendly. When we left for the train station, they voluntariy offered a lift though I said we could handle on our own.

    If they can improve their breakfast, it would be wonderful.

  • Family with children
    8.2

    Proximity to the train station was important, we were travelling on a rail pass. The hotel is downhill fom the station so arrival was easy, less than a 5 minute walk. The trip up the hill was a bit more taxing. The front desk staff was marvelous and had perfect english. We arrived early,checked in and left our bags in the lobby. When we returned from lunch, our room was ready and the bags were there. Breakfast was standard european fair but was included and served in a lovely dining room. Our room had a little balcony that looked down over Lugano. Everything was immaculate.We had requested a triple but then didn't need the extra bed. I think that the room would have been cramped with a roll away in there. But the hotel was gracious and changed our rate to a double which some of the other hotels were unwilling to do.

  • Family with children

    The hotel staff are very nice and helpful. You can reach town in short walk.

    The hotel is across the street from main train station but you have to go down the hill, with stairs and long slope. Please be aware if you travel with big luggages. However, the hotel can send a car for pick-up service.

  • Single

    Despite having made a reservation for a single room I was given a spacious 2 bed room with high standards of finishing.Breakfast was rather basic but adequate,and I liked the fact that they served good capuccino/espresso.I even got another one at the end of breakfast at no extra cost.Dinner though,was very good,rather a good value at this expensive city.I look forward to returning with more time for leisure...

    Nope...given the expensive nature of Lugano,I would consider the price I paid for Federele good value...

  • Single

    got upgraded to a top floor suite, rooms were very spic and modern and attention to detail was exquisite.

  • Single
    8.8

    The location is excellent. You can see the hotel sign from the train station. It's very close to the center. The staff can speak english very well and they are so friendly and helpful. The room was really clean.

    I had my room on the side of the main road so I could hear the cars till a late time at night. They started cleaning the rooms really early and they made a bit of noise doing that.

  • Family with children

    Very friendly staff, good location, very quiet and easy for exploring the town and surrounding area

  • Group of friends

    What a lovely hotel, staff very helpful we were there with Harley rally and so good to us. Food amazing the owners son does the cooking we had 5 course meals on 2 nights- cheaper than the town and wonderful. The owners were on site every night and very hands on. Just far enough from lakeside to be peacful. Would go back tomorrow and would recommend this hotel. Very clean

    Our room was a little on the small side but went into some of the others and really nice
