Good hotel and location
We stayed here with family for a night. The hotel is located in the central, 4 min walk from the lake and right next to the train going up the hill to main station. It is an old hotel but not to shabby. Breakfast was ok too, not so many choices though. There is no parking next to hotel, so we have to park in the near by parking garage

Great location and concierge
This hotel deserves more than a 3 star rating, as far as we’re concerned. The hotel. Was very comfortable and clean, and convenient, right next to the funicular going up to the train station. The young lady behind the desk when we checked in and the following evening was Mariana. She was super friendly and gave us much helpful information. She made our stay 5 stars; without her the rating would have been only 4. The bathroom was cramped, and the shower was difficult to reach for us since we are both not much taller than 5 ft. Also it would have been nice if the refrigerator had more than just a small bottle of water. The window also opened just a crack, and there was no fan in the shower area. The bed, however, was very comfortable. Breakfast was standard, although there was plenty of fruit available as well as croissants, rolls, etc.

The location is superb - just beside the terminal stop of the funicular from the railway station, and in the most happening square of the city, while being just a walk away front the lakeside. The staff members were friendly & helpful, and the spread at breakfast was good.

The hotel is located very conveniently just beside the finicular which runs between the train station and Piazza Cioccaro. A bit difficult to find, dont go by the address, just look behind the finicular.
The hotel is newly renovated, rooms are simple and very clean. The matresses are of very good quality.
Good breakfast available every day between 7am and 10 am. Freshly squeezed orange jus, selection of breads and local patisseries, fruit, jams, eggs, yogurts, cereal, etc. Selection for vegetarians and even vegans. Quite central, all Lugano landmarks are close. Bus stops to Gandria and Morcote very close, boats pier as well.

Very nice and unpretentious
Well located, in the heart of the centro (close to the train station, the lake, shopping). Rosa and Mariana were very friendly, professional, full of good advices on what to do, and very helpful. The breakfast included was very nice. Staff spoke French to me (my mother tongue), which I appreciated a lot, and they speak very good English too.
