Perfectly located, 10 m from the funicular exit, in the middle of town. Wonderful lobby with free coffee and pastries, nice functional rooms, generous breakfast and well functioning internet. Decor is sort of gloomy, but who cares, when you are in a very comfortable womb.

Simply excellent, under all aspects. My First Choice in Lugano. Located at the heart of the city, at two minutes from the train station by funicular. Nice and quiet rooms, very friendly staff and a great breakfast buffet complete the experience.

I was pleasantly surprised, lovely hotel, great location. The staff are friendly and polite, rooms and neat & clean.

I would return...

Perfectly located in the center of Lugano, 10 meters away from the station of the funicular train (1 minute ride from main Lugano train station). Staff is very polite, the rooms are clean and the overall quality is very high. I stay for business and as well privately in this hotel.
