Hotel with Character.
Hotel with character, positioned in beautiful fern gardens. Good facilities. Good buffet breakfast in adjacent sister hotel. Next to railway station. Short walk to lake. Steep hill but okay if you are healthy.

Private room had a gorgeous view and the place was in a great location. Train station is loud, but that’s on the map and headphones exist so if that bothers you then stay home. Top value in Lugano for dollars spent, hands down.

Good location - a few minutes walk from the train station. The room was nice - basic but functional. There was quite a lot of noise from neighbouring rooms and the area around the hotel was a bit of a bomb site as they were having building work done. This is obviously temporary though.
