We planned to stay in this hotel for 1 night then to move to Lugano. Once we entered the hotel we were thrilled with the great view of the lakes and mountains. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly specially "Salvatore". The room size was suitable for us (2 adults and 1 child) which made us extending our stay... More

70ties Hotel with great view over the lake. Indoor pool, sauna and a small wellness. In my single room I was first afraid I would fall out of my bed at night (only 90cm) but luckily that did not happen. Free bikes available at recepion

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 Though the rooms in general feature outdated technologies, but the fact all of them maintained well is quite impressive.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
