I stayed at the Hotel De La Paix 28-30 June. The building and grounds are up-to-date and well-kept. The staff was friendly, the rooms were comfortable, and the breakfast fresh and delicious. Our room had a balcony with a lovely view of Lake Lugano and Monte San Salvatore.
Needed a place in Lugano – this suited the bill in terms of price and location. Sadly the funicular is being overhauled until Dec 2016 – this hotel is right next to its lower terminus from the station – but still, Acquarello is right in the city centre. Embedded in a shopping precinct, so initial impressions aren't good but the staff are great (though checking in is slow) and the rooms comfortable. WiFi works perfectly, ditto shower and scores and scores of TV channels, even BBC1. If you're on a budget and want to stay in Lugano, this is the place.
This modern hotel is adjacent to the town’s funicular railway and is just 500 metres from the shore of lake Lugano …More
A well maintained, grandly decorated hotel on the edge of Lake Lugano. Very friendly and helpful reception, concierge and bar staff (we did not eat in the hotel restaurant, but room service food was fine), with a clean and comfortable room. Only slight let-down was the balcony, which was only reasonably clean and not particularly inviting (our room was located on the end of the hotel), although it had a fine view out over Lake Lugano.

Small room but nice modern interior. Flooring was nice as it didn't turn cold considering it was 1 degree celcius outside in Nov end. Shower cubicle was flawed and water used to flow out on the floor outside the cubicle.
However, the location is strategic as its a 5 mins walk to gorgeous Lake Lugano.
Ticino’s business and cultural center is located lakeside and surrounded by mountains. Visitors to Lugano’s historic city center should put on walking shoes to wander the cobblestoned streets and piazzas. High-end shops line Via Nassa and merchants sell produce at Piazza della RiForma’s outdoor market. Degas and Renoir are on display at Museo Cantonale d'Arte while magnolias, camellias, and sub-tropical plants fill the city parks.
