Cons: We had dinner at the restaurant and were disappointed with the food. It could be due to the fact my husband and I are vegetarian. The salad that was served was wilted and old. For a relais chateau restaurant it was a pity that they couldn’t serve up something spectacular.

9,2 Excellent
Pros: The location of the hotel is absolutely perfect in the city center of Lugano. Few hundred meters from the train station and very well deserved by public transport.

Great for food and wine lovers; you could spend days without ever leaving the building. A couple of blocks from the train station and the central square.

10,0 Excellent
Pros: - fantastic location at the lakefront with lake view rooms in the center of town next to all the cafes and restaurants with excellent transit links to the main train station and out of town tourist attractions - very nice and helpful staff. We decided to extend our stay in Lugano as the city is beautiful and has a lot to offer and the staff were very helpful even with that request - the hotel is old school, but not shabby, it’s nice, clean and renovated and with attention to detail - it’s over a century old. The terrace on the 5th floor has breathtaking views of the whole area from Mount Bré to Mount San Salvatore.

7,5 Good
Pros: Excellent location, beautiful building.

Cons: The lobby is a bit small and, I think, was divided into some retail spaces for rent. But it was big enough to welcome the customers. Breakfast was fine.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The old hotel is young also, I like it. When you go to Switzerland, you should go to Italian area like Lugano and stay in this hotel. Breakfast is sunshine and lovely, with bright color.

7,5 Good
Pros: Rooms are modern and clean. Hotel has an excellent view of the lake.
Cons: Free bottled water in the room would have been nice, along with tea and coffee making facilities. Our room had no view of the lake - which was a massive shame. Breakfast was limited and lacking in variety. Very little on site parking. There is a daily charge of 15 CHF to park. We didn't always feel welcome although some of the staff are excellent. No luxuries or little extras such as shampoo or conditioner. It was pretty expensive for the service/ standard of hotel although we recognise this is partly owing to the poor GBP/ CHF exchange rate.
3,8 Mediocre
Cons: When u pay more than 150 Euro for a room “without breakfast” u’d expect something fancy, but it wasn’t. The place looks tired and old, the whole building smells bad and toilet smells even worse. Room had no view, Ac is really old and doesn’t turn off until u press the button more than 3 times or something. toilet had no shampoo/shower gel. Pillows are flat with cotton lumps. The lights on the corridors aren’t on, the moment u walk out the elevator it’s pitch dark and u have to fitch for the button to light ur way, and it turns off again in a minute or two. The iron and its board aren’t allowed inside the room u have to iron ur clothes in the middle of a corridor in the ground floor, and of course light turns off while ironing i almost burned myself ! Let alone that it’s not a touristy area, no supermarket or restaurant near to it ! And the housekeeper walked in the room without knocking and waiting, even tho i didn’t put the cleaning sign. Which really set me off, a person should privacy inside the room !

6,3 Good
Pros: Swimming pool with 24h traffic, lake view, next-door nice Campione.
Cons: Disruptive construction works over the hotel will continue 1 year at least (completely reconstruction of the neighbouring building), two strange rolder waiters, breakfast without vegetables in vegetable season, AC unit situated at the bottom of the room so refrigerates underlying air instead of superior - cooling is not so effective.
7,5 Good
Pros: The pool area was really nice and room was large and comfortable

Pros: Friendly staff
Cons: Location
7,1 Good
Pros: Large rooms, large bed, wondows with a nice view. Big pool and restaurant with also view over the lake.

Pros: Great location just a few minutes walk to Lugano lake. Very clean rooms and good breakfast. They even have options for kids which is something that is not always available in hotels. Very nice and cooperative staff. Maryam, the manager and her team were very welcoming and nice to us.
Cons: The hotel blocked the money for the first night one day before our arrival. When we arrived the receptionist asked if I wanted to pay for the entire stay and I agreed to do that. She said that she will take the money that she has already blocked on my card plus the price for the second night because we were staying for two days. However, she didn’t do that. She took the whole amount from the card and the money that the hotel took as a deposit is still blocked and it has not been released till now. I have contacted booking and they said that they will contact the hotel, but I received no reply. It has been over a week now and I haven’t heard from booking nor form the hotel. I hope that whoever reads this could help me get my money back as soon as possible

The hotel is centrally located right next to the lower funicular station and within walking distance (though the old town) of the lake. The hotel staff directed us to a delicious restaurant (Shaker) which was a great suggestion.

Pros: The room was spacious and tidy, and so was the bathroom too. The bed was very comfortable.
