We arrived in the evening at this hotel on the way to our destination in Italy. Lavorgo is an very small village and there's a train station on the opposite of the hotel. Eventhough the "receptionist" (who had a multifunctional job) didn't speak English very well, she was friendly and showed us the room. The rooms are quite vintage. There's... More

We choose this hotel as stopover from the Netherlands to Milan. The price is good for Switserland (Euro 95) but the hotel is very basic/old fashioned so do not expect too much. Everything you need is in the room: cable tv (with Dutch chanel!), free wifi, good shower and the room is clean! Only minus is too much not matching... More

We were travelling down to Italy & decided to turn off the motorway for a break & some lunch. We had no real idea where we were heading but happened to come across this superb little place. The place is typical Swiss style but the two standout things were the food & service - both were simply excellent! All ingredients... More

We stayed here on our way to Italy. This friendly hotel is nicely located for a stopover: close to the highway, near the Gotthard tunnel. We enjoyed Italian-style dinner on the terrace of the good restaurant. Some drawbacks: the old and very basic furnishing (no fridge), the railway just across the street (could use some ear plugs during the night),... More

On the way to Southern France stright after the St. Gotthard tunnel is this small, cosy and old familyhotel with a long history. The hotel room was large, old fashioned furnished - feeling like in the 50es or 60es. A very large comfortable bed. Very nice and handsome wellcoming by the host. We eat a very good menu with lokal... More

Stayed here one night while on a hike. The hotel is simple but characterful and clean. The hosts are very friendly and welcoming. Had a good meal in the restaurant despite my late arrival. The restaurant even has a functioning jukebox :-)
