        The location is good (front of the lake and dowtown with a lot of resturants and shops nearby). Breakfast was good. Room was in the back of the hotel but it was quite and relaxing. I enjoyed.

        There is an upcharge (almost double the price) in case you ask for a room lake view.

        7.0

        Location is very good

        Ants on the food table table at breakfast and limited choice

        Localization, nice room, breakfast, interesting architecture and design

        The building is quite old, thus you may here various noise in your room sometimes (e.g., flushed water from other rooms bathrooms, etc.

      • Older travelers

        The size of the room was great and the bar was cosy

      • Family with children

        Perfect location, very friendly staff, great view from a balcony.

      • Older travelers
        9.6

        Hotel staff were very helpful. The room was a standard one but we were given a room with a view of the lake. Gracious, old world charm - everything was first class. Lugano was very expensive though.

      • Group of friends
        10.0

        The gorgeous view from our room 220, the garden in the back.The 100 year anniversary expo was fun. Breakfast is good.

        The construction on the other side of the church, hopefully it will end soon.

      • Older travelers
        9.2

        Good situation overlooking the lake ; swimming pool ; helpful staff

        The food..However our complaint about a really awful dinner was resolved with grace ( and a refund ) by the owner-manager.

      • Single
        10.0

        Locations wa terrific for touring mountains of S. Switzerland. Close to Italy, lakes with boats, tours and train station. Hotel had a lovely pool area, great breakfast. Polite and hospitable bar-tender, and waiters.

      • Family with children
        8.2

        The hotel is very beautiful, comfortable and quiet neighbor.

        I think the internet service could be available for all hotel, because there was wifi only in the bar, and it is not convenient when you need to check the business emails.

      • Group of friends
        9.2

        the general ambience of the old building and old photographs

      • Group of friends
        5.8

        well prepared for special requests. extra bed was in the room already upon revival.

        1) not enough capacities for breakfast at rush hour and poor service with re-stocking the breakfast buffet and looking for a alternative seating option

      • Couple
        5.8

        Room air conditioner did not work... despite of informing the staff it was not corrected.. the room carpets are really old and need to be replaced... they gave us allergies and we kept sneezing throughout our stay... the breakfast is strictly ok... only stay here if you have no other choice..

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        Great place excellent value and very friendly and helpful staff we enjoyed our 2 days wish we had longer

      • Group of friends
        9.2

        Easy stroll to city centre but far enough away so quiet at night unlike hotels nearer the centre. Good pool and garden. Public transport excellent. Hotel restaurant good value compared to many in the town, even away from the waterfront.
