Buona posizione e cibo ottimo

Ho soggiornato qui per lavoro ad un prezzo bassissimo, posizione comoda vicino al lago! Il mangiare era ottimo e il personale simpatico. L'unica nota negativa é stato il prezzo dell'acqua in bottiglia. (7.5 CHF al litro mi sembrano un po' troppi)

Hotel non male abbastanza carino

Pros: Il letto matrimoniale con due materassi e misure ottime
Location: Si può andare visitare il monte generosa con il trenino, mà tutto questo è chiuso fino 2016 :( lugano città un pochino distante.
Hotel situato vicino alla ferrovia e una strada un pochino rumorosa. Hotel caratteristico, la cosa che ci è piaciuta di più, è il letto con ottime misure, con due matterassi (normalmente i letti negli hotel sono sempre abbastanza piccoli). Camere pulite, prezzi alti a Lugano :( noi eravamo persuasi aver domandato hotel con parcheggio e colazione compresi nel prezzo della camera, invece la mattina della nostra partenza ci dicono che la colazione è extra, non compresa nel prezzo della camera, Che sorpresa :( questa non ce l'aspettavamo. Ed è per questo che trovo che il prezzo che abbiamo pagato per la camera, è un pò troppo altino. Rapporto qualità/prezzo :((( e la colazione non era niente di extra :(

A good hotel for an overnight stop

4 out of 5
by from Vero Beach, FL
Posted Sep 7, 2013
Pros: Very nice people
Cons: Well, the rooms are very clean but also very old concerning what they charge for
The rooms are small and old but very clean and the beds are good. The hotel is not recommended for an extended stay, it is ok for an overnight stop enroute. The restaurant is good and all service people are really friendly and helpful. So if you look for a stop in the area, an opportunity to unwind with a good dinner and have a bed to sleep and nothing more, this is the hotel you are looking for.

Het restaurant redde, maar verder....

Posted Apr 28, 2013
Location: Expedia had dit hotel nooit mogen aanbevelen als zijnde in of vlak bij Lugano, want het ligt 15 km daar vandaan. Alsof Haarlem bij Amsterdam ligt....
Het hotel heeft een onmogelijke locatie: op een straathoek en vlak bij een spoorlijn. Een tuin is er niet. Het meer is niet in zicht en zelfs nauwelijks bereikbaar. Voorts ligt het een flink deel van de dag in de schaduw van een berg. Onze kamer deed denken aan een Engelse uit de jaren 50 of 60, Met o.a. een los zittende douchekop en de kleinste tv ooit. Het hotel verdient alleen een aanbeveling voor zijn restaurant, waar men van heinde en ver naartoe komt en echt goed wordt gekookt, terwijl de bediening vriendelijk is.
