Unbearable Noise. Arrogance & Disregard of Guests
We were on the first floor. The night we arrived there was a noisy cocktail on our floor. Then the next morning, there was terrible unbearable noise from construction works just in front of our windows. 5-6 large machines and tools were being simultaneously used as of 7am. Drilling was done two meters from us. Large pieces of equipment were being uplifted centimeters from our windows. I have slept previously in hotels with a construction site going on close by, but this was beyond anything I have seen. In my opinion some of the first floor rooms of the hotel need to be closed. What was even worse to experience, was the attitude and sheer rudeness of staff when we expressed our dissatisfaction. Total arrogance and complete lack of empathy. We are requesting a reimbursement for this stay. I am enclosing pictures extracted from videos. The videos clearly show the noise level and I could send those as well if you provide me with an opportunity. I look forward to being reimbursed..

Free breakfast and nice staff
This hotel is my go-to place for business in Lugano. It's right across the street from the convention center. Plus, the town square, bars, and restaurants are just a few blocks away.

Hot and sweaty in Lugano
The only negative feedback was that there was no air-conditioning .

Nightmare Hotel
Very bad experience. For $140 you get ancient room without bathroom nor air conditioning. It was very hot and I couldn't sleep much because of that. Bathroom is somewhere outside and (for $140) I even had to clean it. Can you imagine that's?? Also hotel doesn't have enough parking lots. I had to park on the street and pay for it. Lodging in this hotel doesn't worth it more then $30-$40. Shame for such a nice city.

Save money if you accept hostel-like conditions
Offered bare essentials in an absurdly expensive city. No a/c. Our shared bathroom and shower were down the hall. Beds were marginal. But everything was clean. The front desk was very, very helpful. The free breakfast was fine, and the hotel's restaurant was the only reasonably priced meal within a mile. If you want to save, consider it. Think of it as a hostel for grown-ups.
