                Staff very nice , Italian style warm hearted people mixed with the swiss efficiency is the best combo. The hotel lobby was very comfortable , you felt like really returning home after a day visit . The complementary Nespresso and tea selection with small cakes available all time is a great gesture .The rooms are quite small ( still much better than an avg Paris hotel room ) but ok for a short stay . Bathroom is immaculately clean. The hotel has an automatic garage, which is an added bonus when travelling by car . When departing we have even got extra water for the road . Overall we have received a lot of attention and care .

                Booked a Junior Suite, which turned out be very small (1m space around the twin bed), bathroom shower is in the bathtub, the room has no view, sitting area not usable (3-4 sqm). poor value for money compared to other hotels in Lugano.
