    It's in the city center

    But you can't come near by car. And the main problem - the funicular right under your windows. Works from 5.30 till midnight. If it's a weekend of any holiday, it will be escpecially noisy, as any sound is resonating in a small closed square. (I am not sensitive to the noise at all, but here...) We paid extra money for being little bit far from the the funicular, but we were as close as possible. And it was too late to discuss, as the front desk closes at 11 pm - and that's it.

  • Group of friends

    That's a very poor hotel. Hot and very noise and the price is not resonable. The staffs manner are very bad and rude. I not recommend to stay in that hotel. That got hotel price but gave not hotel service. That's the wrost hotel where I stayed in Switzerland!

    nothing

    people are every time rude, room are very hugly and dirty, for internet they ask 2 euro!???

  • Couple

    Very good location, right in the center of the city, close to many restaurants.

    The hotel is indeed rather noisy due to the funicular which runs until around 00:30 right through the hotel. In addition, there is no air conditioning - this would be highly appreciated during hot summer days.

    Hotel, idealy situated to visit lugano, ideal for the lake etc, freindly staff.

    Very clean, comfortable bed and decent amenities, very close to shopping areas and lake. Very helpful staff. Very safe and convenient.

    Nothing. I stayed in the hotel to go around TIcino, it served the purpose. I did not stay in the hotel during the day and when I get back in the evening, it is just nice to see a very clean room with tv facilities, internet and coffee maker for my quick morning breakfast.

  • Group of friends

    Location is wonderful. Just next to the cable station of Lugano station. and to everywhere easy to go!

    There is not pot for boiled water, glass and cup , refrigerator in the room. This is only disappointing.

  • Group of friends
    4.6

    That the tap water was really cold and drinkable...

    The disrespectful staff they acted like they were paying to us for us to stay there and didn't hel at all at the check in... And the funicilare makes a lot of noise ! ! !

  • Single

    I had read the review about Acquarello and was concerned about the reports of noise from the tram, but found that not to be any problem at all. The tram was very convenient upon arrival by bus from Malpensa Airport as Acquarello is just below the train and bus station, The location of Acquarello is ideal for the basic traveler to Lugano. It is just steps away from the waterfront and there are restaurants, shopping, a supermarket etc very near the hotel. The staff was excellent and more than helpful, even when under the pressure that comes form working a busy front desk. The room I had was large with a large bathroom -single for double use - Rm 517. I heard the tram, but it was just "atmosphere" to me and anyone who has been to or lived in New York. I give Acquarello my highest rating in this price range!

    Location is ok the rest is very poor

    We needed 3 rooms urgently at last minute and that was the only hotel witth 3 rooms available during this particular week end.

  • Older travelers

    Was a very friendly atmosfair, everything was very plesant

  • Group of friends
    6.6

    The location is comfortable because it's near the tram.

    The prize is not include breakfast

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    Very close to city centre and funicular from the railway station. Clean and tidy. Room was functional but nothing special. Breakfast the same. Staff were friendly and helpful.

  • Group of friends
    6.6

    The reception is friendly and helpful. The location is great but as it is so central, it gets little noisy at night if you open the windows. Generally would stay again if I cannot find a better one for the same price.

    Really sparse rooms, more like a hostel than hotel.
