Very Good8.0
Convenient location to train station and city. Great breakfast. Room was clean but outdated. Hotel was a good choice for a 1 night stay

Hotel Federale Lugano, Lugano
This hotel was awesome! Our room was perfect for needs. Big plus was the incredible view from our balcony. We had our own personal view of the Independence Day fireworks! The food in the restaurant was very good - for both breakfast and dinner. We loved Lugano. Would definitely stay at this hotel again!

Loved this place
We loved the hotel. It is in a great location right near the old town and a 10 minute walk to the lake. Rooms are very nice, we had a view of mountains and a little lake. Breakfast on the patio is wonderful! Only tip is to have GPS on car if driving as is tricky to find...or a very good map. Highly recommend.

Lovely Lugano
Four day stay was fantastic. Halfway between town center and train station on a steep hill,so it was either walk up or take tram all the way up and walk down. Breakfast was great and staff was excellent.

Lake View
Make sure to book a room on the top floor if you want any lake view at all. Parking is not included and is somewhat of a pain (extremely tight, on a lift) Room we had could use updating. Very friendly service.
