I recently stayed at this lovely guesthouse near Lugano, Switzerland. I stayed in the 'Weekend Suite' which is perfect for a single or couple. Castagnola itself is just a few footsteps away from the lakeside and an easy 2km bus trip or walk from the bustle of Lugano. Kristina is a delightful and welcoming host. I walked from the guesthouse... More

Our room in the castagnola guets house was simple but very charming and clean. The owner is super nice and helped us wherever she could. The bus station isnt far from the guesthouse and the bus runs every 15 minutes.

My friends and I stayed at the guesthouse for more than a week. We had a wonderful experience. The suite was nicely furnished and well-maintained. It was spacious and so comfortable with a bedroom, dinning and living rooms. The small kitchen was well equipped and we prepared dinner at home on several nights. The bathroom was modern and a joy,... More

Kristina has done a great job furnishing the vacation suite. We stayed for 4 nights- family of four. There is a separate bedroom, separate kitchen-meals area and the lounge (with sofa bed). This is a much better option than a hotel- not only is it stylishly furnished with all features of a hotel room (umbrella, mini bar options, breakfast) but... More

My husband and I stayed at Guesthouse Castagnola for a few days and loved every minute. Kristina was the perfect host. She was engaging, generous, and easy to work with. Our room was inviting and thoughtfully furnished. Castagnola was a nice surprise for us as well. The tiny town is perfectly situated midway between Gandria and Lugano. I would highly... More

We stayed at the guesthouse late August of this year. Although the owner had to be away up on our arrival, Kristina left written instructions on our room etc. As soon as she was able to get back, Kristina called in and introduced herself and apologised for not being present when we arrived. Whilst this small act may seem not... More

I surprised my husband with a long weekend in Ticino. After much looking I found this place which seemed to match our needs (we were traveling with a 11 months old baby). The place more than confirmed what I saw on Internet...the house it's beautiful and has been recently renovated with a lot of taste. The bed is very comfortable... More

If you are planing to visit Lugano, my husband and I really would recommend the amazing Guesthouse Castagnola. The freindly owners recently renovated the beautiful building that radiats warmth and hospitality. In the morning a basket filled with homemade marmelad and fresh newbaked bread is placed next to your door. The guesthouse is neat and clean and your room is... More

I've never had more pleasant and attentive hosts. The couple that owns the bed and breakfast are absolutely wonderful, they care about your every need and are extremely concerned about your comfort. I'm not sure about the above review........ But, I do know that my experience at guesthouse Castagnola exceeded my expectations! My boyfriend and I couldn't believe how beautifully... More
