            Nice location, nie view, all rooms facing the lake.

            Very noisy. The traffic was heavy, and music stages with rock band played until 2am.

            Very god renovated, Typical old Swiss hotel, Good continental breakfast

            The bed was not so comfortable, just this

          • Couple
            8.2

            Very nice comfortable hotel with excellent location right in front of the lake and close to the main sites of interest in Lugano.

          • Family with children
            9.6

            The Swiss breakfast buffet was excellent, and served in a very cheerful, pleasant room with helpful, friendly staff. Lakeside view was outstanding from the two guest rooms we were in. Private rooftop sun chairs and jacuzzi were lovely.

            A little noisy from the street with windows open. But quiet with windows closed.

          • Single
            10.0

            I enjoyed the friendly helpful assistance of the staff, the fantastic breakfast (best choice I have seen in Lugano) and the suberb central location, only 5 minutes from the main rail station also via the funiculore. The views from the rooms and also the roof are spectacular.

            My room was a little noisy with traffic from the promenade outside, but this was due to the rain and the noice of the water spray. However, the beautiful views over the lake more than compensated from this and indeed I think it would be the same for any of the waterfront hotels.

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            The position is ideal

            If it wasnt for the price offered by Booked.net, it is a bit overpriced

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            Central location. Very nice staff. Nice view of the lake.

            We were given a room with a lake view as requested. Just for guidance, the lake view rooms are on the main street, which can be noisy at times. I'd still take the view.

          • Single
            5.8

            The location was brilliant - right by the lake but also in the old town. Also being next to the tourist information office was useful. If you cant book a balcony, then you can use the roof terrace which was also lovely.

            Our room (46) did not have a shower - just a bath with a hose that we had to hand hold when we stood up as the wall fixture was just above the low taps. We knew the room would be noisy and it was (they thoughtfully gave us ear plugs) but we got used to it. It was expensive for what you got - not great value.

          • Group of friends
            8.8

            * Hotel is really located facing the lake and near of everything. We had a room with a nice view on the lake and mountains. Wonderful! *Staff friendly and helpful. * Large choice for the breakfast (fresh fruits, ...) and super good service.

            -air conditioning does not work very well - breakfast could be served a little later, especially on weekends (ends at 10 am)

          • Older travelers
            7.0

            view of the lake. breakfast was very good.

            price was very high for the quality. there were parts of the room where the paint was worn away and one of the shutters would not close completely.

          • Single
            9.2

            the beautiful location. the room had every comfort & facility.

          • Group of friends
            8.8

            I requested an extra bed in the room and with the view of the lake. I got exactly what I requested. So it was perfect.

            Not too much choice for the breakfast.

          • Couple
            7.4

            Location and staff

            The rooms are renewed but the floor of the room is so noisy when you are walking on it I think they did not change it for 133 years

          • Family with children
            7.0

            Location is great as it is situated right at the lake in the city center. Rooms are clean and staff is nice and friendly.

            Rooms are dated and if you are travelling by car parking could be an issue.
