A charming hotel far exceeding its 2 star rating. Rooms are simple but very well cleaned and maintained. What makes a stay here such a memorable experience is the 5 STAR service provided by the Busomi family. The two sons were very hospitable without being in your face and could not have been more helpful in providing local information which... More

I travel on business for about 4 months of the year. I have stayed in literally hundreds of hotels in pretty much every country in Europe. This is only the third hotel in 15 years of travelling that I can honestly say I would take my family back to for a holiday. This hotel is run by brothers Luca and... More

Charming hotel with a first class restaurant across the road. Oliver was a charming host making the stay memorable. Breakfast delicious. The area is beautiful and much quieter then Lugano. Off road parking is available. We will definately return.

The building and the garden are both lovely, retaining an old world charm but with modern comforts. The owners Luca and Oliver were attentive, friendly, kind and outstandingly helpful without being at all intrusive. The rates were reasonable. Excellent evening meals and lunches were served in the adjacent restaurant owned by the same family. We would love to return, and... More

We felt so warmly greeted by the owners Luca and Oliver, and were looked after with such genuine care and attentiveness.

Hotel Tesserete is run by a lovely couple; both husband and wife speak perfect English, French, and probably German as well as Italian. They were pleasant, the place was clean and more spacious than the other places we had stayed in Ticino, and it was altogether a lovely and restful stay. Breakfast was excellent too.
