Very friendly welcome, good room, well furnished & spacious enough. The bathroom was modern, functional except for the sink, that was placed outside the bathroom, in the room itself so to say. I've seen this before in Switzerland, but I still don't like it. Good cleaning in the room & the bathroom, but the lift floor (rug) wasn't well cleaned.... More

We stayed at the Hotel Benjamin and didn't have a clue what to expect. We were met with delightful service, a great room, wonderful views from the hotel, and nice incentives/deals for guests of the hotel. It's a bit of a walk from Bellinzona's castles (probably 30-40 minutes) but is a lovely stroll nonetheless. It has a free taxi service... More

This hotel does what it sets out to do. It is an extremely well located motorway stop off on the Southern approach to the St Gotthard tunnel. It allowed us an early exit to beat the usual traffic queues at the tunnel. We left the hotel around 7.30 am, and there was no queue. I have experience very long queue... More

This is the first time I've ever stayed at a road-side gas station hotel, and I was very impressed! If you are looking for a clean, convenient and friendly place to stay while traveling north-south (or south-north) in Switzerland, I highly recommend the Benjamin. The check-in was easy and friendly, my room was equipped with everything one needs for a... More

A bit special as you only reach it from the highway and only coming from the South. If arriving from the North you have to leave the highway at Bellinzona Sud and take the other direction back on the highway. Leave the highway at Bellinzona Sud area di servizio right after the bus parking you will find the motel. The... More

A motorway hotel which makes no bones about being just that. It's a bit like dropping back in time. Take Swiss conversion plugs, and free wifi requires new login every hour. You can get food at the services area a few minutes away or point your GPS at the pizzeria reception will tell you about.

We were on a ten day tour around Europe and stayed only for a night in this one. There were around six hotels that we stayed in through the entire trip and I loved this one the most! I am not sure how good it would be for those spending time only in Switzerland but for anyone taking a hectic... More

The hotel was very conveniently placed for a stop over on our drive down through Europe to Ancona. The staff were exceedingly helpful and the room was very clean. The hotel does not have a restaurant but has discounts for guests at the service area where the choice of food was vast and well cooked. Only difficulty was that my... More

I stayed here for just 1 night during a business trip. The hotel was rather empty due to the low touristic season, therefore I got a good rate for the room. The lady at the reception was kind and helpful and gave me a very positive impression. The room was clean and comfortable, rather a bit cold but not a... More

The number of trucks parked outside the hotel does not give you a feel of hotel and it looks like a motel. The rooms were decent and check in was quick. There is a coop few meters away, so it makes for a good night over.
