excellent experience, very close to train station, shops, lake, buses, restaurants and any other important locations. Very good service, very positive surprise. Rooms rather small but does not matter visiting a city

Stayed here with my wife for my birthday, and the hotel kindly upgraded us to a Suite. For the first moment of contact, the hotel displayed excellent customer service, especially as we had decided to relocate from another hotel in Lugano ( which was possibly the worst hotel in the town!). The staff were all warm and friendly. The hotel...

with a few shortcomings: no plug socket near the bedside table; however, upon request they give you an extension cable. It's great to get free Wi-Fi, but unfortunately it freezes and blocks plenty of internet pages and especially iOS applications. Toilet paper and paper hankies are of 1* quality. TV flat screen is good, but the remote control that comes...

Our family of four (2 adults, 2 children) enjoyed a pleasant stay in two rooms for four nights in early April. The breakfast included a wide range of options and the rooms included a free minibar. Parking is available at extra cost, and the hotel's location was perfect. All guests at the hotel are entitled to a 'Ticino Ticket,' a...

Highly recommended and in the center of Lugano. The decoration is a bit outdated, but charming at the same time. Real, old school room keys that you hand over at the reception! The rooms are clean, very good bed and minibar. The buffet breakfast mainly consists of pastries, and the breakfast area is a little congested.

My room was large, comfortable and clean with everything to please : comfortable bed, choice of pillows, free minibar, big bathroom, coffee and tea, free wifi...

Great hotel, excellent service in the heart of Lugano. Worth staying here both for business and leisure. Rooms are comfortable and cosy. I had free minibar with non-alcoholic beverages. No wellness facilities.

Dear Csocsola, thank you very much for spending your precious time reviewing our hotel. We are delighted that you could appreciate your stay. Being located in the city centre and in an ancient building of the late 18th century, we do not have enough space to have wellness facilities. However, if our valued guests want to relax, we suggest to...

This hotel was chosen for us by our travel agent as part of tour of Switzerland and we stayed their for a few days.

Nice hotel with a very generous breakfast buffet. Rooms are a bit small. No view is available however it is in the heart of the city. Rooms are very clean and with Air-conditioning system. They don't have a swimming pool

Dear Ahmed M, thank you for your nice feedback. As you mentioned, we are located at the very heart of Lugano’s historical centre, in a quiet and picturesque pedestrian area, and our hotel has no a view. However, the lake is only about 150 metres far away. Have you informed the reception staff that the room was a bit small?...
