      Very close to the lake (about 2min's walk). Very helpful and friendly staff.

      No aircon in the room (although we were aware of it at the time of booking!). Do not go to Lugano whilst the annual Harley Davidson festival is running (unless you are interested) as the city is very very busy and noisy at this time. But still beautiful!

      staff very helpful (reception and breakfast room)

      noise due to early departure of coaches (6am!) in the carpark outside our window.

      I asked for an andditional bed.But when I checked in there were only 2 beds for 3 persons!!!They also required for additonal fees for 60euro~~Then we asked for one more quilt in the evening ,they made us waited for many 20minutes until we fell asleep then it was the second morning which made us really angry.

      Thr breakfast was very basic not a coissant in sight.

      Very good location and both indoor and outdoor swimming pool. We didn't have time to use their gym, sauna or other facilities. Breakfast included in room price and not bad range of food.

      The hotel has a number of buildings and is a bit dated. Their free wifi is only available in the lobby and we couldn't establish a connection anyway. The hotel could benefit with a services directory in the room to help guests.

      Staff friendly and location reasonably convenient for lakeside, Good parking facilities.

      Room somewhat cramped. Bathroom had no lighting. Actual location unattractive and much building surrounding hotel. Considerable noise from coach parties from the hotel, especially in the evening.

      Location directly at the lake, easy to find.

      Front-desk staff was very friendly. And when I needed a special adaptor for recharging my iPhone, they had it available for me to borrow. Very nice.

      It worth the price, don't expect a great hotel but nice and clean enough to have a place to sleep, have a bath in the swimming pool and enjoy the balcony!

      Be patient with the shower to get hot water ...

      Too noisy, you hear people from nearby rooms

      The breakfast that was included was very good.

      The main problem with this hotel was that on arrival they said that they had no reservation for me even though I had a booking confirmation number and had a print out of my reservation. The receptionist told me I had no booking and I had to give them my credit card information again. She was very unhelpful at first, but did manage to find me a room. However, other patrons who had booked through Booked.net were not so lucky being told that they had no reservation and that the hotel was full. There must be a problem with either Booked.net or hotel Calipso's reservation system. Also the wireless internet service was virtually non- existent and this was a big problem for me.

      The room I have stayed was large, comfortable and good designed. The room is cleaned very quickly every day.

      Not having Internet connection at the room was not good. Also two morning some of young guests have made to much noise early in the morning (Around 7 am). This could be prevented. Also because of the construction work the noise starts early during the worki days.

      Very friendly staff, excellent location-few meters to cable car to san salvatore,quiet paradiso,close to lago
