Acquarello Swiss Quality Hotel, Lugano
Very Good8.0
Great location, terrible shower
Stay here for the location! Extremely convenient to train station. Just take the funicular down and the hotel is right there. Only a few blocks from the lake as well. The room was clean and basic. First hotel in 7 nights throughout Switzerland we had with AC, but it was the worst shower I think I’ve ever used. So small my husband had to turn the shower head and open the door to lather soap before rinsing off.

Fair4.0
The lack of air conditioning in this close, stuffy small roomed hotel made for an uncomfortable one night stay in early June. The staff was very friendly and did comp us breakfast for our discomfort.

The hotel was about as central to Lugano as you can get. Friendly, helpful staff. A great place to stay in Lugano.
