I stayed here for 4 nights with my children (14 and 16 years old) while visting my other daughter in Lugano. We had a very good time at Hotel Colorado. Friendly staff and very clean rooms. The price is very good there as well. I would definitely recommend this place! I'll come back for sure! Thank you again

Really great welcome at this roadside hotel close to the station. Parking available next to entrance. Decent enough room with balcony although basic bathroom. Not sure how light worked in bathroom as it had mind of its own. Shaved in light shone in from bedside spots. Breakfast room a tad basic but food good and nice coffee (unusual for some...

Booked a single economy room and thought it was a pretty good deal. Upon arrival at the railway station, you can take either bus nbr 2 or 4 to get to the hotel. You can also choose to walk but I find the cobbled walkway quite difficult to lug my luggage around. I got a room on the 4th floor...

Hotel is very basic. Lugano is expensive and so was one night at this hotel. If you're just looking for a clean place to sleep that's 'cheap' then this is fine. Our room was much smaller than shown in the photos and breakfast was lacking (cereals, a selection of one cold meat, cheese, yogurt, and croissants).

I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Lugano. It's a very short walk into center city and the rooms are clean and ours had a small balcony. The hotel is not extremely modern, so don't expect to be in a chain style hotel but the point is that it is nice! People working there were very accommodating. We...
