2/10 Poor

Awful experience!
The missing Air-conditioning was the main deal breaker . The beds were very uncomfortable ;I left with a back pain. The wifi was really bad , unstable. The pool is open from 10:00am to 07:00pm .All good until you realize that during the day you cannot use it too much and by the evening the staff tells you off at 07:00 sharp in a non polite manner. Durring my stay ( june 20-27 ) I had a surprise of a construction site right next to it . Every morning 07:00 sharp the workers uill cut in iron and wood making a awfully loud noise . No minibar in the room . The rooms are looking awful, everything is old and works like it . On the balcony you get just twoplastic seats over-used and mini table. Overall the worst experience I've ever had.By the end of the holiday I got so pissed that really made me hate this place . The only good parts are: the location and the fact that the cleaning staff did a perfect job considering that the showers were not sealed properly and water will get out all over the bathroom. Nothing more , nothing less.

Sufficient place to stay for short time, kind ppl!
My friends and I had a pleasant time at this hotel, it is in a quiet area where locals are just across from the lake. It is an older building with very small amenities such as little bathroom space but it was sufficient enough for us for our 2 night stay. Keep In mind they have no air conditioning in the rooms at least none that we saw, however we let the windows open for a breeze and left the fans on and that kept the room cool. The front desk employees were so kind and helpful, they suggested great places for us to eat in the local area and provided us with great service. I would definitely recommend staying here for a short time.

Lake view hotel but somewhat dated and no aircon
The location of this hotel is excellent, right in front of lake Lugano and it was nice to have a small pool next to the hotel and a balcony. What was very disappointing was the inflexibility of the hotel manager in particular with regards to the check in and check out time. We were not allowed to check in the room a bit earlier eventhough I looked like the rooms were ready as the hotel was not very busy at all. When we arrived at the hotel the manager told us off in a way for being "too early". On the day of departure the manager wanted more money for a late check out. We had already paid quite enough for this somewhat dated hotel with no airconditioning so I thought it was quite greedy from the hotel manager to request more money for his hotel which didn't seem very busy. So in a way I have mixed feelings about this hotel. It was nice to be near the lake but not nice not to be treated well.

Small hotel by the lake shore
The owner of the hotel is very friendly and helpful. The hotel is by the shore with fantastic view of the Lake. The room has no air-conditioning inside so I had to leave the window open to get fresh air. Nice buffet breakfast is served in the morning. There is a 5 Euro charge for the parking.
