Not posh, very clean and comfortable. Tastefully decorated as well. Nice covered lounge out front, extremely helpful staff, walking distance to anything. And affordable rates! Would definitely recommend!

I stayed here last summer and loved it... This winter I just returned and had a very unfortunate incident occur. We picked up a taxi from the train station, this is about a 10 to 15 minute ride to the hotel... I asked the taxi driver if she knew where the Admiral Lugano was because it was evident she was...

Seriously, it is so hard to find an under 100 CHF hotel with breakfast in Lugano. Admiral hotel is perfect choice. Just 300 m walk from the lake, supermarket is round the corner. Rooms are compact but not tiny. Bed is comfy. Breakfast is great. Wifi is good. Nothing else is necessary for a stay in Lugano.

Great location, only a sort walk from the lake . The staff could not be anymore helpful , the rooms are a great size and well appointed . The only thing stopping a five star review is the much needed renovations which meant the pool and bar were closed on our visit . We will definitely be staying again

Some time ago it was a great hotel I guess, now it's a bit outdated I think (yes the design is still there but walls are dirty, with scratches). Staff is not very polite or helpful (with small exceptions). One positive point - breakfast, one of the best I ever had in my 'hotels' life. Price/quality average

Very basic hotel; great location, but minimal services. There were noisy renovation works which made it impossible to nap during the day, and which caused the closure of the bar and restaurant. These facts should have been made known at the time of the reservation. Also, during an early (6 am) check-out, the front desk ripped me off by 4-5...

Being on a regular basis for business in Lugano I like to test new hotels each time. This time we check out the Hotel Admiral Lugano. From outside it starts to show its age. The receptionist doesn’t really speak English so I switch to my broken Italian. The lift and the corridors look even older than the outside but the...
