    A short stroll into Lugano, use the funicular back as its uphill, the train station is only 5 mins away, and there is a nice restaurant just across the road, which serves good food and very friendly staff. The hotel is basic but good value and close to Lugano, which is beautiful.

    Fabulous

    Staff were very helpful

    Price was quite steep for what we got - buffet breakfast was pretty basic.And why when you ask for a double room can't you get a double bed? Don't like leaving the key in an area available to all patrons - not a good feeling of security

    The location is the best this hotel has.

    Extremely noisy as it is located in the main street. It does not have air conditioning but you cannot sleep with the windows open because of the noise. The windows are not sound-proof neither so it was difficult for us to sleep.

    I like the location, it is very good for city trip. Free parking on the side is the good thing.

    A bit noisy at the night due to traffic.

    The only good thing was the proximity to the railway station.

    Everything worked. Clean.

    The hotel is cold, not in temperature, but in everything else. It is unfriendly in almost every way. Cannot complain, everything worked. The staff responded as they should, but never smiled, never looked you in the eye. Breakfast unimaginative, none of it nice, all of it good enough. Rooms coldly decorated, no imagination, the supposed renovation has happened, but not done well, and not quite completed, finishing touches will never be done. Poorly located and noisy. Cannot complain but I will never recommend this hotel or stay at it again.

    Maneger is nice person. He is Hilarious and kind. The location is very good, so close to the station. It has wireless internet. I like the balcony in our room.

    The breakfast is so poor. The room key does not work well.

    Good

    Good location, near funicolare. Makes it easy to get t town centre. The room was ordinary, but clean.

    The noise from the traffic is very annoying. No air conditioner, so the room gets very hot. The breakfast was poor, only coffee, bread and jam.

    Very good

    The hotel has several parking spaces available for clients and free of charge. Also, it is very near the train station. Breakfast was modest but ok. I really liked the soft and thick towels.

    We stayed on the 4th floor because it was non-smoking. When we arrived the room felt like someone had smoked in it. Also, it was hot in Lugano, around 30 ºc, and the room was too warm. We opened the windows but there was no breeze. There was a small fan but no ac so there was no way to lower the temperature of the room (and then we had to choose to sleep with the noise of the fan or the heat).

    Very bad customer service, reception was usually without anyone... Keys are left on the hall at the reception, so no security at all... Regarding the car park , it was full every day and to get in/out of the car park, you depend on someone at the reception to open for you. Hotel is really old... So be prepared in order to not be disappointed. Cleaness was good, at least... .

    Fabulous

    It was clean and friendly. Close to city centre, railway station and bus stop. Breakfast was fine. Cheap by Swiss standards although nothing in Switzerland is cheap by uk standards at the moment.

    A bit noisy because of traffic with the windows open but peaceful if closed.

    Superb

    basic facilities, but comfortable, clean, just near the train station and very very cheap.recommended if you need a nice cheap place to stay but dont intend to spend much time in the hotel itself. has good wifi also!

    Good

    Very close to the rail station ( under 10 min walk). Price was relatively cheaper than other hotels in the city.

    The hallway outside the room was not well lit. Our room was at the end of the hallway but the light is in the centre of the hallway and did not sufficiently light up the end of the hallway.
