Dear Mr Archsahni

Thank you for your wonderful review and for having grasped all our strong points as our new and spacious rooms, breakfast with all fresh produce and freshly prepared. Our hotel is located in a strategic position, just off the motorway exit Lugano south and a short walk from the promenade along the lake to the city center.

thanks again to wait for a new stay at hotel admiral lugano

best regards Gm Andrea Corrias

Very basic hotel; great location, but minimal services. There were noisy renovation works which made it impossible to nap during the day, and which caused the closure of the bar and restaurant. These facts should have been made known at the time of the reservation. Also, during an early (6 am) check-out, the front desk ripped me off by 4-5 Swiss francs for "taxes" that duplicated other taxes; not nice!!

Dear Mr Tom,

thanks for your review. In these period, low season for ticino, we are working to make a better offer to our guest and to renovate the hotel it self....

we are sorry for some problems could be happens but it's only for our guest ....
at the moment all the food and beverage area is under total renovation to have a nice new area for the spring time.

city tax chf 4.70 per person per night are always not included in the rate that you pay on the operator or that you can se online, so that there has been any ripped from our front desk and any duplication of taxes.

all the best

Being on a regular basis for business in Lugano I like to test new hotels each time. This time we check out the Hotel Admiral Lugano. From outside it starts to show its age. The receptionist doesn’t really speak English so I switch to my broken Italian. The lift and the corridors look even older than the outside but the room is a positive surprise: it has been renovated and looks like in a regular modern city hotel with a large cozy bed.

As they offer no free mineral water I put my bottle into the fridge just to find out that the fridge doesn’t work. Being ready to sleep I try all light-switches but the bright ceiling-light at the door just won’t switch off. After calling the reception they explain that – as mentioned in the title – they have connected it to a motion detector which will automatically shut off after about 5 minutes. What an annoying feature! And beware if you need to go to the bathroom during the night: you will wait another 5 minutes to go back to sleep again.

The breakfast then is quite uninviting. Okay, they serve several sandwiches at the buffet but the sausages, bacon, and scrambled egg are cold as they didn’t bother to switch on the food warmers. They serve fruits that are not ripe. They serve coffee in a glass jug but no warm milk. They serve toasts that are cold. You just don’t get the impression that you are in a 4-star hotel.

Conclusion: there are so many better hotels in Lugano in this price-range.
