  • 8.0.Very Good

    The hotel is very centrally located with simple rooms. Our room had an open shower, which was a little strange. All staff that we interacted with were very friendly and helpful.

    Small, run down room. Power outlet only to be reached by crawling on the floor into a corner. Smelly bathroom.

    Thin walls!

    Walls are very thin and you can hear people talking in adjacent rooms. Also, our room was very small; maybe 15-18 inches between foot of bed and wall. Had to squeeze sideways to get to other side of room.

    For the price and certainly the location this family friendly hotel l recommend; staff are welcoming and helpful as well. The rooms are slightly dated but charming, a little bit of paint here and there is peeling back but this reflects on the overall price.

    Très bon rapport Qualité-Prix pour Lugano

    L'hotel est très bien situé en plein centre ville de Lugano. La chambre était un peu petite mais très fonctionnelle ! Le petit déjeuner copieux.

    Hôtel très bien situé, personnel souriant et serviable. Hôtel mal insonorisé, assez bruyant.

    Ottima posizione. I muri sottili tra le stanze le rendono rumorose. La colazione potrebbe essere migliorata, per il prezzo.

    Il San Carlo è un Hotel che secondo noi manca di professionalità e per questo motivo le sue due stelle non sono meritate. Per via della sua ottima locazione, con il poco che offre, potrebbe dare ai clienti molta più piacevolezza e soddisfazione.
