This hotel has magnificent views. It overlooks on the city, the lake and the surrounding mountains. The best treat is to sit on the room balcony, at twilight, with a cold drink, and enjoy the views and fresh air! Hotel building and decor is a bit dated, but well maintained. Rooms and surroundings are very clean and maintained. Our room... More

We typically make international hotel reservations many months in advance but booked the Calibri the morning of our stay, after canceling our hotel in Lucerne due to incessant rain. We chose this hotel based upon the pictures of the view and the pool. We paid extra for a room with a view and the moment we entered the room and... More

We spent three days in July here with friends. Fantastic views from our bedroom balcony day and night. Breakfast buffet was very good as was dinner the one night we ate in the hotel. Staff were very friendly. Decor and furnishing is rather old fashioned but spotlessly clean and well looked after. There is a bus stop outside and the... More

I spent four days at this hotel. The view is magnificent from the breakfast lounge and from the terrace of my room. At any time you can enjoy a spectacular view of the lake and its villages around. This family hotel is quiet and offers all the comforts without exaggeration. A nice walking way drive you into the city center,... More

One of the best view over the area aroumd Lugano. Clean rooms and friendly personal. Not a boutique hotel, but a romantic place remembering the 70ties. I would just avoid the tartar for dinner, was expecting much better one and it is a bit overpriced at CHF 95 for 2. Otherwise its one of the cosiest place to stay fot... More

We love this hotel! Second time in 20 years and they have updated a lot of the rooms..so make sure to ask if otherwise...the views are spectacular! The restaurant is very good...it is a great place to hang out when in the Lugano area. We love to go to Morcote for lunch, then to the AlpRose Chocolate Factory and back... More

As stated by many before, the views of of the lakes and Lugano are stunning (I had room 227). However, while the bathrooms have been recently remodeled, the rooms still sport rather old furniture with large floral patterns. Not my style at all, but clean. CHF 240 per night is not cheap, but then again, all hotels in Switzerland are... More
