...is what comes to mind with Hotel Pestalozzi. I felt very safe and comfortable as a woman travelling alone on business. The room was very clean and compact, with a desk and chair to work from and free WiFi. Breakfast was included, and lunch and dinner is also available. The dinners I had were generous serves with a homemade touch.... More

Clean hotel, nice but simple room and very nice centre place. A bit expensive in relation to the ordinary comfort. Good break fast. The restaurant is no-alcohol, but they have at least beer. That's good. The food correct and also the service ! I can honestly say there were no complaints with my stay. We stayed just one night. The... More

Stayed here whilst in Lugano for work. It is a short walk from the train station (you just need to know the right direction to walk. Hint: walk down steps and then cross, then cut down through an alley way, then turn right and walk. You will see it on the left hand side around 50 metres past the bus... More

Dear Cheemar, thank you for being our guest and for this lovely revue. We are more than happy that you obviously enjoyed your stay with us - in our hotel and the surrounding! The town near by you've mentioned should be Bellinzona, right? If you need a tourguide or tips for a hiking tour for your next stay with us,... More

This hotel is in a convenient location, close to pretty much everything except from the train station, which you can easily access by bus though (bus stop just outside the hotel). Our room was clean and had a nice view of a small park, not very quiet though as there was some noise both from the street and from other... More

Friendly staff, clean room, centrally located. The restaurant is no-alcohol, so did not try... Free wifi . Room on the main square are quiet at night and may be more pleasant than in the back. Good for solo on business , but not so cheap for the size of a double room.

This Hotel offers real value for money. It is located within walking distance from the Train Station/Funicular, close to Bus Stop and Ferry port. The Waterfront is only 200 metres away. Our room had a nice view overlooking a small park and a busy street which we enjoyed watching the Life Style of Lugano. Shared bathrooms on the floor were... More

This is a centrally located hotel, near the lakefront, with a built in (alcohol free) restaurant and wifi. On arrival at the station, you can either catch a bus, or take the little shuttle train into the town centre. We decided to walk and we reached the hotel within 20 minutes. When we arrived, the receptionist was welcoming and efficient.... More

The good: Hotel Pestalozzi is centrally located in Lugano and relative to the price of other hotels is a good deal which includes wifi and breakfast. About 10 min walk from the train station. The room was clean and the staff friendly. They allowed us to check in early, which was a plus after a long day of traveling. The... More

Good location just in the centre of Lugano. I travelled to this beautiful city and I found this hotel closer to the Congress Center with a good quality/cost relation. Staff at the reception was very kind. The rooms are a little bit poor in terms of decoration but clean.
