    Lugano solo trip

    The place has good reception service. The room is clean and moderately modern. The location is at the center of the city and about 10 min from Lugano station. However, the noise from the funicular can be quite disturbing. If you’re sensitive to noise then you go somewhere else otherwise highly recommended.

    Convenient and comfortable

    Excellent location directly by public transport and main shopping and dining area. Small breakfast buffet but excellent quality. Check in and out were efficient and easy. Parking is a 3 minute walk from the hotel and the funicular adjacent to the entrance makes arrival by train extremely convenient.

    Conveniently located hotel for exploring Lugano

    The hotel is conveniently positioned in the town centre, near the train station and the lake. The hotel room was comfortable and the breakfast was very tasty with a good selection of products. The funicular that passes through the hotel building is a fun novelty as well as being very convenient!

    Perfect “drop your stuff and go” hotel

    Perfect for what it is! Right downtown in the heart of Lugano it is the ideal drop your stuff and go hotel. The staff is friendly, the hotel is clean, and for Lugano, it is a very reasonable price. Ideal for those who want to spend their time exploring Ticino and have a comfortable bed/clean bathroom to return to
