Not bad! but I do to stay again.Posted Sep 11, 2014
Pros: The distance for most of the important places.
Cons: The beds.
Location: Location is great....close to mount San Salvatore.and to le Lake Lugano is in front of the hotel...
is very close to the train station,which is good,and just a few steps to Mont San Salvatore,and to the bus stop,I like the neighborhood,,very safe at night...very convenient for 2 days...but the room was noise! (the floor,the bed,the doors) is a very old hotel......good thing is the breakfast was very good,the staff was nice to answer some questions.

Very well located convenient hotelPosted May 14, 2014 on Hotels.com
The hotel could definitely use an upgrade and feels a bit old. However, the room itself was clean and well furnished and had a killer view. The staff can be a bit stiff but helpful. Breakfast is nice and served in a dining room with view of the lake which is very nice. WiFi was very good when we were there. Note that there is almost NO street parking. They have a garage right in front of the hotel where they charge 20 CHF/night. It is quite convenient if you have a car but not cheap (is anything in Switzerland :)).

somewhat bizarre but good value..Posted May 1, 2014 on Hotels.com
The location is without doubt very good - and the lake view rooms have an expansive vista. But inside it's a tad bizarre and very dated - if you don't like the smell of cigarette smoke avoid this place. Having said this my room was comfortable, a good size and the bathroom, though dated, was spotless with copious amounts of hot water. And for Lugano, great value. Just avoid Monday when the club downstairs pounds the music until 6am!

Great Lake-Side LocationPosted Apr 7, 2014 on Hotels.com
We come back to Hotel Victoria again and again. Great location and free breakfast. Lake-view rooms are worth it (or maybe you will just get lucky like us and get a free upgrade). Rooms are simple and clean- they aren't the most modern you will find in Lugano, but that's the charm of the hotel.

do not believe anything you see on the websitePosted Jun 4, 2013
Cons: It is so out dated and so unfriendly
Location: Great location
The hotel is so out dated - elevator is too small to fit for two adults, the shower head is placed so that you could not take a shower without getting water all over, the phone was not working well until I asked the staff which were not warm at all, very bad taste painting all over the hotel. The roof of the hotel seems to be falling apart at any moment, the hallway was so hot and so dark because it was controlled by motion sensors. One thing about this hotel is that it is in a great location - right near the lake.

Victoria Hotel LuganoPosted Oct 30, 2012 on Hotels.com
They did not have the proper room available. I do not know if this was intentional. Our room that we eventually received was great other than being too hot. The hotel was charming. The restaurant staff was somewhat rude. The weather was bad and there is not much near the hotel to see in bad weather.
