Rooms were not small with less amenities but reception made every effort to help us in our needs. Great location in Lugano with speciall ticket Ticino made our stay a decent and fruitful. Thanks for having us there

We had a great stay here. The hotel is clean and the rooms are very comfortable. The car park is a great bonus but you pay extra for it, that wasn't clear on the website. The hotel is well located to see everything Lugano has to offer.



We came here for a night just after staying in IBIS budget Basel. Compared to Basel it was more expensive and there were no possibility to adjust the room temperature and also it was not installed any motorize shaders. We had 2 rooms but since they were almost fully booked they were in different part of the floor (but at least on the same floor). Oh... and their website does not allow to book a 3 person rooms though several floors they have rooms like that (Basel was able to book rooms like that) so we had to call them at the end. Also the breakfast were more expensive... I guess not because the ingredients were more expensive...



What a great team at IBIS Budget! The staff was kind, courteous and always professional. We were so impressed with the multilingual qualities of the staff. We will surely be back to Lugano, and the IBIS is where we plan to stay. Thank you.

Good location & environment. Near to Lugano Lake. 20 mins walk to Lugano Central by lakeside. Easy to access via bus#2 from train station. It will be good if hotel could provide bathroom floor towel even this is budget hotel.



I stayed here twice. Good view from our window. We can see the lake but in a few years ahead i dont know if i can see the view because there is another building will be right in front of the hotel blocking the view



Ibis Budget Lugano is small but very clean and practical. Ideal for couple because isn't very private (shower separate from the toilet). The breakfast is good enough, with bread, cold cuts, juices, coffee, fruit and cereals. The receptionist was very friendly and helped us with our doubts.



I stayed during Easter long weekend at Ibis Budget Lugano Paradiso. I was glad to have found this hotel as it suited my budget and my preference. ie. close to the lake and the train station, with a beautiful part-view from the room. It was truly a satisfying experience coming from as far away as Jakarta, Indonesia, that is so far different to Lugano, and found that the hotel was satisfactory as well. I found the price to be reasonable for Switzerland (which is well-known for being expensive), during one of the busy weekend in Europe. I also found that the room configuration was unique, a double bed + bunk bed, which would be perfect if I plan to return with my nieces (aged 12 y.o and 4 y.o). However, you have to be fit to stay here as the Lugano Paradiso (train station closest to the hotel) is located in a steep hilly area, that required you walking as if climbing a small hill : ) and the stairs to the station is very steep as well. Also, the Lugano City Centre is a bit far, about 30 minutes walking distance. I tried to board the tourist small bus-like transportation that should have stopped around the corner of the hotel near the funicular station of Mt Salvatore, but for some reason it didn't stop. So I took an easy stroll to the city center. The closeness of the hotel to the lake made up for it. I found that check in process was fast, the reception was friendly and efficient and the staff on every day that I stayed there to be friendly as well. I definitely will consider staying again when/if I decided to return with my family.


The hotel was clean and modern, the town was beautiful. 20chfr to park was a little expensive but the breakfast very nice. There was a good selection of TV channels. I would certainly recommend Ibis Budget hotels.

Friendly Staff. Clean brand new rooms. Good rates and good location not far from town. Easy access both by foot, by public transport or by doing driving. Possible to park outside hotel free on weekends. Rooms are small but well it's ibis budget. We just need a place to sleep and shower. So cleanliness is very important to us.

Reception helpfull and friendly.Parking next Ibis hotel. Good design room,efficient as usual, but no safety box.Being on the 7th floor I could sleep with wide open window,the way I like.Minutes away from city center and lake.



No frills but with advanced booking, probably the best price for a couple or couple with child can get. When Daughter was young, she enjoyed sleeping in the upper bunk like a tree house above us. Convenient to Lakeside walk to Lugano city and bus stop to Loreto if visiting Franklin University.

By swiss prices it was reasonable. It was a little bit far from the city but closer to the city meant higher prices. It was nice and clean and had a supermarket, restaurants and buses nearby. I would stay again.



Shared the room with my father for 4 nights. Breakfast was OK, room was clean but too small and had not much privacy. While one was taking shower, the other one had to stay in bed or wait outside. For me that was the only down side of this experience. Location is good. Hotel is located in a quiet neighborhood, near the lake and Lugano-Paradiso train station.



The hotel is a little far from the central part of Lugano, but a bus gets there easily. The room was simple but very clean and well set up. My only qualm was that there were no toiletries provided. Staff was warm and helpful.



It's a good choice for one night trip to Lugano. There is no shampoo at the shower. The room was small but ergonomically designed. It's a new and clean hotel and the people working there were friendly.



There probably are some kind of air conditioning, but not the kind where you can set your own temperature and airflow. For me the room was too stuffy and warm, didn't sleep much. Had plenty of time to reflect on the bunk bed over my head and other oddities. TV remote was missing. Breakfast buffet below average.



hotel is in a great location close to the centre of town and also the lake. the funicular is a 5 minute walk from the hotel. Parking is available but costs 2o swiss francs a day but it is convenient and safe. hotel as free wifi and is clean and the staff are very friendly

Spent 110 CHF on being treated like a begger who did not pay anything. Go to a youth hostel instead. At least there is atmosphere and cool people. The ibis budget is located right next to the ibis and the Novotel, a 3-class-divide that staff make you feel every time you dare talk to them. We were told that the breakfast buffet was in the ibis, but when we arrived there, the staff sent us to the basement where we wered seated in a room with the staff entrance. The guy "in service" was extremely unfriendly. To every of those ca. 10 staff that entered to start their work day he offered a coffee. To us he did not even talk, instead he was waiting impatiently for us to finish as we were approaching 10 a.m...Bring your own shower gel, there is none...but what do you expect for 110 CHF?...



I've stayed at many Ibis Budget hotels and like the others, I was happy with this one in terms of value and location. It was close to the lake, and a 15 minute walk to the main city. The urban train station Lugano-Paradiso is just 5 minutes by foot. The staff was friendly and the room was comfortable. The breakfast was good for the 11 chf we paid. What more could you ask for? The only issue was that during checkout, my wife and I wanted to ask the reception about travel to Locarno, however, there was nobody at the desk, as all the staff were apparently helping the regular Ibis customers. We waited for about 5 minutes before we just left. But this isn't really an issue since checkout for Ibis Budget normally involves just leaving your key at the front desk.
