a nice clean hotel not far from the center of the city. nice helping staff. good breakfast wi/fi in the rooms. there is no elevator so ask for 2th floor that gives you the lake view. the bed is good and there is good transportation to the city.

We can't come because my girlfriend was in hospital and the manager canceled the reservation without costs although it was for the same day! We will come next year - thank you very much again for the straightforward procedure!

Lovely quaint hotel in a good location. It us about a 10 minute downhill walk into the centre of Lugano. You can get a bus or short taxi bus, back up the hill. If you walk left from the hotel away from town following the lake, there is a small lido where you can swim in the lake. Some of... More

We paid 150chf for a room for two. The service was very nice and the room clean and quiet. Good deal in Lugano and the breakfast is included! This hotel delivers good standards for a *** and we all had a good experience there. Just some rooms have a small double bed so to check when you book maybe.

We were very dissapointed about our visit in this hotel. De room was very small, and very hot (no airconditioning). Also there is no private parking for the visitors. You have to park on payed parkingspot nearby.

We planned to stay for just one night on our way from Holland to Tuscany. The hotel itself was easy to find but there isn't much parking around. We were lucky enough to have the last spot on a small parking area nearby that has only 8 spots. The reception staff was quick, friendly and efficient. The rooms looked recently... More

This is a bed and breakfast with own bathroom and probably the smallest room I've stayed in , but very clean and comfortable with a small but perfectly formed breakfast ( if you are leaving too early the cafe up the road " La Strada" has great coffee). The rooms at the back are quiet but the rooms at the... More

This hotel is recently refurbished and offers fantastic value. The rooms are an appropriate size. Everything is clean and new. They staff were lovely. It's a short walk to the beach and shopping strip with some really nice restaurants. Lugano is a very pretty town and this hotel is affordable. Breakfast was basic but nice. I'd stay here again, and... More

Trip advisor Lugano is a very pretty place, but very expensive. Locanda Castagnola is reasonably priced, but not cheap. The rooms are clean and big enough, and the location is an easy walk from the centre of town. A bit of a hike from the train station though. Very nice breakfast. Would be nice if there were some cups and... More

We were welcomed by very friendly staff. Our rather small room was very clean but had a WIFi connection. Breakfast didn't had a lot of choice but was sufficient. The location is 10 minutes by car from Lugano Center.
