    • 2.0.Poor

      Two star hotel

      Total disappointment from walking in to walking out , the reception not welcoming felt like we were a burden . Parking told to park in public parking area . Nice shampoo and conditioner bottles on front desk - don’t be fooled into thinking that’s what you get in the room ? You need your own or use the generic squeeze bottle that is all in one . The room was basic no frills and not really clean , bathroom is out of date with mould and rust apparent. Doors and room not sound proof so the smell from breakfast reached our floor and into our room. We checked out and that was chore as we had two rooms and seemed to confuse them, then put out bags into car and returned to eat the breakfast included and that caused the manager to wave her arms like we should not have done so , I asked why it’s a problem and they said it’s not . As I said absolute amateur service and only a one or two star hotel. Nothing more.

      Don't stay until the building work is finished

      It could be a nice hotel but at the moment is ruined by noisy building work and very poor service. I asked for a quiet room and was given one beside the lift and directly opposite the big building site next door. No sleep either from noisy guests coming and going or an early start to building work. The next day I asked to be moved, and they gave me a room directly beneath the renovations going on to the hotel itself. Drilling and hammering all day so i got no work done. And the staff really didn't care at all. The room itself was fine and the breakfast nice. But I wouldn't stay here again.

      Nice hotel friendly staff

      The hotel is nice with a good breakfast and it has a small fridge in the room would of liked a kettle for the morning. The staff are excellent very friendly and helpful. Nice rooftop area even has a pool for the summer. Handy for the fanicular or hike up San Salvatore and a nice walk into lugano along the lake. You also get a discount pass with free bus travel in the region. Rooms are basic but a good quiet location and a decent breakfast.
