A superb location ! a great restaurant, very nice service. And a stunning view on Lake Lugano. We loved it a lot, so we come back to it two weeks after. The hotel is located in the woods and is a great place to rest and to discover the mountain.

I have stayed in Hotel Serpiano in July 2015 for around a period of 10 days for summer school. Though the rooms in general feature outdated technologies, but the fact all of them maintained well is quite impressive. For example, a CRT Phillips tv that we had in our room. In general, the hotel scores amazingly well for the breakfast... More

Really lovely outlook from the restaurant terrace, location great for mountain bikers but a little off the track for others. The food was well presented but the menu was a little lacking and not that good, and very, very expensive for what it was! The rooms were a reasonable size, but no aircon in a modern hotel of this price!... More

Serpiano is the best hotel in lugano. We had an excellent time staying there. They have very welcoming attitude, great staff,great property, lavish spread of breakfast, spacious and clean room. View from the room balcony and specially restaurant area is to die for.......very very soothing and mesmerisng. Would surely love to visit sometime in future.

Spectacular view from the restaurant but that unfortunately, is where the praise ends. Poor restaurant food. Uninterested staff. No atmosphere. Basic rooms in dire need of a face lift and without air conditioning which makes sleeping very challenging in the summer months. Put simply, this place has had it's day. It needs to be totally refurbished or knocked down and... More

We stayed at Hotel Serpiano for two nights as part of a shopping excursion to FoxTown. The hotel is pretty much in the middle of nowhere, being accessible via a 5 KM single lane country road. The hotel is a simple no thrills experience, providing basic rooms which are clean and spacious. Our room overlooked the bike trail, alongside mountains... More

Don't be put off by the outside look of the hotel as you drive in. It looks like it doesn't quite fit in the serene mountain peaceful setting that you find yourself in as you drive up the mountain to the only hotel at the top. As you enter however, things change, the kind staff are ready to greet you,... More

First thing we noticed is there was no AC in the rooms. Not so bad at night when its cool outside, but forget about a nap at noon. Too hot. The rooms are nice, for a 3 stars hotel. Service is great all arround! The food: well, breakfast was good. Continental and a bit more. Dinner was another story, the... More

We went for lunch at the restaurant. Food was good and despite the restaurant being quite full the service we ate quickly and the waiters were very friendly. It's not cheap but neither too expensive given the location. A very good choice as well for vegetarians. Not to be missed the terrace that offers a breathtaking view and if you... More
