It's my first choice in Lugano, the location is good, the service in perfect, the breakfast is very good. The panoramic view to the lake is amazing, you will wake up to see an incredible view of Lugano lake that you will not see it in another place, advice it for couples to take the Lake view.

Very classy, charming hotel; the room was clean and spacious, staff forthcoming and friendly. Great location too, allowing a stroll along the river (10-15mins walk into town). I wish I could stay longer - anytime again!
