                  The price is toooooooooooooo high

                  Beautiful hotel, 5 mins from Lugano station and an easy walk to the lake. Room was spacious and had a large balcony with a great view, loved it

                • Group of friends
                  8.2

                  Breakfast, location and friendlyness of staff. A team member called valentino checked us in and he was just amazing throughout the duration of our stay. Professional, Helpful and friendly.Just the best!!!

                • Couple
                  8.8

                  The hotel staff is friendly. The elocation is really excellent, because it is very central yet very calm and no noise (compared to the hotels just beside the lake...!) our room had bathroom recently renovated and a small balcony with nice view over lugano.

                  Maybe the style of the hotel, but it's family run and hey, as long as it is clean and friendly and good location, it's perfect!

                  Our room had a great view of the city and lake.

                  7.0

                  Convenient location for walking around and visiting Brig.

                  Small room with no view.

                • Family with children
                  9.2

                  The hotel exceeded our expectations. The breakfast was very good, and the staff was realy nice and willing to help. The location is also good as it is far from the noise of the town centre, but at an acceptable walking distance from it. Hotel guests are allocated private garage places which relieves your from the trouble of finding a parking spot. Also, the view from the upper floors is spectacular. We would definitely return here.

                  The fact that there was no free wifi for hotel guests was quite annoying. The only way to access free internet was from a computer on the ground floor. The prices are quite high, but nothing is cheap in Lugano.

                • Family with children
                  9.2

                  Friendliness of the staff, close proximity to train station, quiet, large rooms and comfortable

                  Breakfast wasn't to the standard of selection as other properties we had stayed in. It was good but probably could have had a bit more variety.

                • Family with children
                  8.2

                  Great location if you are arriving by train, a few minutes walk, and also close to city centre. Great spot, breakfast was good, staff friendly.. Ticks all the boxes for a couple of nights in Lugano

                • Older travelers
                  7.8

                  Friendly, helpful staff. Good, quiet, location with only short walks to the train station, old town and lakeside.

                • Family with children
                  10.0

                  The restaurant offered delicious, fresh food with a varied menu. Our room was spacious, comfortable and quiet. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location was convenient.

                • Family with children
                  7.8

                  Good location if you don't mind walking up the steep hill, friendly staff, nice view from room of lake and mountain.

                  Rough towels. Very basic room service. On 2 occasions at breakfast, a basic hard boiled egg was uncooked when it was ordered.

                • Family with children
                  9.4

                  This is a wonderful hotel. Very close to the train station which was great since we had a lot of luggage to take. It was also a very short walk down to the main square and the lake. The staff here was super helpful and we felt very welcome. We had two rooms since we were 6 people. The rooms were nice size for European standards. The breakfast was a nice spread. I would recommend this hotel.

                • Single
                  8.8

                  The location is very close to railway station, it is just two hundred meters walk and not very steep. The room was very queit and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent.

                  The walk from the city center is quite steep uphill. If you need to do it several times a day, it is better to take the lift/bus to the railway station.

                • Family with children
                  7.8

                  The hotel was perfect and served out purpose well. The location was ideal. The staff were friendly and helpful at all times.
