    Good

    I booked this hotel as the website promoted relaxation and massage experiences. We were extremely disappointed when we arrived to be told that all massages were booked out that day, as I had booked that particular hotel solely for that reason. It appears that one must book days/weeks ahead of arrival to ensure a place, as local people use the facility, that was not evident in the promotional material.

    Fantastic outlook, very friendly staff, good facilities, two good restaurants, relaxing spa, rooms were large, clean and very nice.

    Good

    New facility which includes a serious gym and pools. They kindly upgraded us from 2 rooms to a spacious suite.

    Frankly, the hotel lacks the style you would expect from a **** hotel. Something is not working in the design. Perhaps the over-use of marble, the long underground corridors, or maybe the faked plastic flowers.

    Superb

    The hotel has beautiful gardens, great pool with fantastic views. Unlike the description on the website, the hotel consists of several low rise apartment buildings connected to each other. We had booked a room for 3 person and was given a very spacious 2 bedroom apartment with a large balcony overlooking all lugano. The apartment, although was not luxurious, was very comfortable and clean.

    For the use of the spa(indoor pool and sauna, steam bath) there was a charge of 65 chf which I thought should be free when you pay 580 chf per night. The bedrooms has no a/c and noisy if to sleep with the windows open.

    Location, cleanliness, staff professionalism

    The aircondition system did not work in my room for four hot days. Ironically, that was the very same room I stayed in 4 years ago which had the same problem. For 400 usd a night, you would expect to sleep decently.

    The hotel is in a very good location overlooking lake Lugano whilst still being close to the city. It combines several "houses" with a labyrint of walkways to the rooms. The spa facilities are outstanding with a wide varieties of treatment. The orthopedic treatment I choose was spectacular letting me forget the aches and pains I normally feel.Highly recommended hotel.

    Fabulous

    Staff were fantastic and very welcoming of my two children aged 2 and 11 months. The pool area was great and we had a fantastic relaxing time. The hotel is well positioned on the hill with good views but is close enough to walk to Lugano.

    SPA

    My room seemed more like a youth hostel than a luxury hotel. The furniture was minimal and old, the bed sheets were terrible and the beds not what you expect for this price. I was very disappointed with my room and will definitely not come balck.

    Good

    Large room. The hotel provide varied kind of pillow for selection.

    The room is closed to the road and too noisy if you open the window. If you close the window there is no fresh air.

    Superb

    Everything was almost perfect, the staff very helpful and fluent in English and Italian and German! I enjoyed the location very much, on top of a hill overlooking the city and the lake. Great views and perfect location if you want to get a bit away from the city center but still have it in walking distance.

    The scrambled eggs and bacon served for breakfast were cold. The noise from the street bothered me a bit at night.
