                  Room was spacious and comfortable. General appearance was lovely. Staff was extremely polite and helpful.

                  Very light colored carpet - showed dirt

                  Beautiful hotel with goo views of Lake Lugano.

                  he room was a little small for the money.

                  9.6

                  It was probably the best managed hotel I have stayed in. Clean ,beautifully maintained with courteous staff.

                  Staff very kind and helpful. Well located in the park and not to fare from the towncenter.

                  Excellent old style hotel. Not many like that left nowadays, even in Switzerland. Reminds old Dolder in Zurich before transformation into another "spa place". The lido on the lake is spectacular. Very nice staff, some people work there in summer time and go to Badrutt Palace/Kulm in winter season

                  Conferences, functions

                  The view from the room, amazing rich and colorful and fragrant garden,quiet location

                  I found a cockroach in the room, maybe creeping in for some luxury in the room, when I asked if they can provide a shuttle to the station they said it is 25 f extra, I found that pathetic when your bill is quite high for using the facility.

                • Single
                  5.0

                  During my stay temperatures were very high (36 or more degrees), air condition in my room was not placed on the right position and was cooling direct to my body while in the bed. At the same time the bed was prepared for the middle of the winter time. Result: after my trip i visited a doctor due to the improper cooling and bed in the room.

                • Older travelers

                  quiet, fairly close to the centre

                  A beautiful place like Lugano in combination with that hotel = a wonderful stay in a fantastic atmosphere!
