A lot Better Than Expected

Pros: Location and the rooms.
Cons: the lobby
Location: The location is perfect. Its right next to the train station so you can just walk. Its also just a short walk downtown. Incredible views
I used to live in Lugano and have walked by this hotel many times. It is not super cute or particularily nice looking from the outside so i didn't expect too much. The lobby is what I expected, very simple and made for utility not aesthetics. However, the room was so much cuter and comfortable than I expected. The views were incredible, and everything was super clean and comfortable. Loved staying there! Would definitely stay again.
