Fabiola, the owner's daughter in law made the stay memorable! We wanted to arrive at 4pm, but later changed out timing to 8:30pm. She was very flexible. When we arrived and knew we were hungry, she opened up her grocery store (just at the hotel), to let us pick food items to cook! During the stay here, it was raining... More

We were there only for the food (dinner). We ordered a salad, pasta and pizza. It was a self service buffet salad. The food wasn't bad, but it wasn't great. The service was not bad, but not great either. We went there around 7:30pm and perhaps it was because the restaurant was about to close. Unfortunately, nothing memorable for us... More

Up, up, up above Lugano with amazing views. This small, pleasant and comfortable small hotel has friendly staff. The room was simple but spacious with a spectacular view. The road up was twisty and takes about 15 minutes or so, but is not as narrow as many. The restaurant also shares the same great view with good home cooked food.... More

What an amazing feeling one has in Summer, when the morning mist disappears heated up by the sun!!!! When standing on the balcony of the Hotel Al Ponte, it often happens that, early in the morning, you are above the fog, and you literally feel like tasting that see of whipped cream that covers the entire Luganese. But then, the... More

A great family run hotel. Lovely food, perfect views of the lakes and mountains and you can't beat the service, so friendly and welcoming. A must stay over in Ticino. Good for families and couples alike.

L'Albergo al Ponte is a real special place thanks to the magnific view, the familiar ambiance, and a good food. Quite close to the city of Lugano, and to the highway it's an ideal place for vacation , or also quick business stay.

We come to Al Ponte on a regular basis, as we find the location incredible. The service is very friendly and the view from the rooms facing the lake is breathtaking. They have a decent selection of Italian dishes and some good wines too. All guests can enjoy an indoor/outdoor pool, which we find as a bonus.
