Small paradise in Lugano, centrally located:beautiful garden with very nice pool. Nice and very clean room. And we enjoyed very much the home cooked food, having dinner outside under the pergola. Everything has a personal touch. The owner and her staff are very friendly and helpful. This kind of unique hotel you find very rarely these days. Excellent quality for... More

Stayed here for 3 nights a couple of weeks ago. Went back and forth about what I thought about the hotel. Some pros and cons: Pros: 1. Very nice pool and gardens! Really exceptional for a 2-star property. 2. View of the lake from our bedroom window. Though somewhat marred by construction (see more about construction below). 3. Furnishings are... More

My husband and I stayed here with 2 adult children. We were so happy to find this place. The price for the small apartment we rented was fantastic. We loved the location, about a 15 minute walk down the hill to the centre of town. We also enjoyed the breakfast, the gardens and swimming in the pool, which was very... More

Recently, my husband and I stayed at this lovely gem of a hotel. We were very pleased with the location(minutes walking to the center of town or taking a funicular) and the room. Our room, on the second floor, had a view of the lake and surrounding mts. It was also very light and cheerful which we loved. The breakfast... More

A 2 star hotel in the center of Lugano, a nice place to stay very economic and simple at a very good rate ( why pay more unless your looking for all the comforts ) .The rooms are simple and have been renewed all with double glazing, also new bathrooms. It has private parking, park and swimming pool. The breakfast... More

I stayed here for a few days for work and then with my husband in June. Its a short walk from the train station, and the garden ( patio) is lovely. The rooms on the front and side of the house can get very loud ( even with double windows) so you may want to ask for a room on... More

I have stayed at the Hotel Villa Selva two times in Lugano, Switzerland. The rooms are clean and comfortable with a/c in summer. The grounds are well-landscaped and lush. The pool is nice with lounge chairs around it. Dinner is a great value and very delicious. You can hang out inside the restaurant to watch tv like we did while... More
