                                • 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.

                                • Two minutes walk from the main square and the lake, location is perfect. Small friendly hotel right in the center of Lugano, staff are amazing and the rooms are noise free, beds comfortable and baths spacious. Many restaurant close by.

                                  Price is too high and breakfast buffet is very rich.

                                • Handy for the railway station and just 3 minutes walk to the lake. Lugano is a beautiful location and hotel size is comfortable etc. Especially. The staff are attentive and the receptionists are very helpful. Bathroom is immaculately clean and breakfast is great.

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

                                • Location was good, the breakfast was the best we had at any hotel in the 15 nights we spent in Switzerland and the staff were extraordinarily friendly and accommodating. Our room was stylish, comfortable.

                                • The location was great and the staff were the best, unlike any other hotels, everything in the fridge was complimentary. 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.
