Value for Money is good. But the staff is quite unfriendly. The restaurant next to the hotel offers very good food. The hotel is located perfectly to walk to the city center.

The view of hotel is excellent! Compared to the 120+ euro hotels in Swiss side, the choice of this hotel is quite cost efficiency. The only strange thing is that the hotel is located in a place 20 meters from Swiss & Italy border, so to go to the hotel you have to take S60 train to Ponte Tresa, and then walk through the Custom into Italy side. So, sometimes the security may check your passport especially when you take a lot of bags and suitcase...
