I was in lugano for the day and one night and didn't want to spend a lot on a room while at the same time being located in the center. This place was perfect. It is across the stop of the funicular which takes you straight to the train station. You are in the old town and can walk to...

I was pleasantly surprised, lovely hotel, great location. The staff are friendly and polite, rooms and neat & clean.

I would return...

Perfectly located in the center of Lugano, 10 meters away from the station of the funicular train (1 minute ride from main Lugano train station). Staff is very polite, the rooms are clean and the overall quality is very high. I stay for business and as well privately in this hotel.
