Pleasant hotel stay with good Lake views

Great Lake view, nice hotel restaurant food beside and near to shopping
Room is a little small and the hotel website states to take a bus #4 to the hotel but taking a funicular and walking there would be easier and faster.

OK place; nothing special

Lakefront location
It was not a memorable stay; that does not mean I had a terrible time or such. For the price paid, the hotel is not worth it. Very basic; does not even have irons for guests to borrow. Very nice breakfast room with decent selections.With a lake front location, it is steps away from the shopping center/old town area.

A $1M L. Lugano view from our 4th floor balcony

Scenic position, its comfort and ambience
Your could not wish for a better location to rest after a busy 4 week trip through Europe. Outside the Hotel, Great sightseeing from boats, funiculars and walking along the lake shore.

Great location, friendly staff

Location with balcony overlooking the lake
Small room but made up for by having the balcony with table and chair. Staff were friendly and helpful and the hotel has charm. Only problem was it was a little noisy from the street on Saturday night as I was only one floor up.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Take the funicular up monte San Sebastian, the view is superb

Great Location with good view

View and just right in the heart of shopping belt
hotel is reasonably clean with good customer service. Staffs are very polite and always carry a smiling face with them. Though hotel is a bit old and small(do not expect a new 5-star stay), but a good scenic view will make you forget about the "old feel" of this hotel.
Hotel Feature Tip: Value for money and good scenic view. I'll return to stay if happen to be in lugano again!
