                      • Great value and location, excellent hotel. Nice and comfotable lobby, friendly staff. Bedrooms were comfortable and clean, the availability of cold drinks from the mini bar was also a big plus, the breakfast buffet included in the rate was generous.

                        The price is a bit high for 4 stars and rooms are truly small.

                        Train was terribley dirty and room was a bit too small.

                      • Comfortable lounge area, very helpful staff and the hotel is in the city centre, the personnel is very friendly and helpfull. The rooms were comfy and the bathroom is lovely, breakfast is superb.

                        Location is perfect as you step out the front door in the middle of the old town.

                      • Excellent location, great stay and tea for free in the lobby all day. Good and efficient service, very comfortable bed. Breakfast was really awesome.

                        Poor value for money compared to other hotels in Lugano, very small room.

                        Rooms and a little old.

                      • Just in the City Center, a perfect stay and plus a very comfortable inviting lobby. Chocolates free at reception, excellent room and the breakfast buffet is most generous.

                        Great location in the heart of the old town and near the water, one of the best hotel.

The service was excellent, the bathrooms were spacious as was the shower for European standards and we loved the free drinks from the minibar and the breakfast was phenomenal.
