Poor 2.0
Don't book!!
Horrible stay. Suddenly extra charges appear for cuttlery and kitchen utensils... becuase they have to disinfect the utensils, menawhile they still were dirty and i had to buy cleaning utensils anddo it by myself. Very dirty room without tv and a horrible bed! The balcony is used by all people on the same floor and the windows are defective. The ac is blowing hot air....

The staff was excellent. At check-in I was given great advice about where to park my car and where I could find a good restaurant. He also handled the matter of the noisy guests in the room next to mine quite well.

Liked our stay at Lugano Guest House. Beds were comfortable and coems with a mini kitchenette. Conviniently located. Within walking minutes to grocery store and convenient store. What I like most is the Lufano lake which is just within few minutes walk. The hotel also give free ticket for transport but I had not used it. Mybe in my next visit

Good 6.0
Old room, reception closes very early although they have been really helpful with instructions on finding our way in. Though I booked this hotel for the parking, this service is not provided. They have no parking and parking in the area late at night is not the easiest thing.
