You are intrepid and fortunate to find yourself at this hotel. It was the most romantic of our two week European vacation. We had a room with a balcony overlooking the lake. We listened to thunder and cuckoo birds! If you can handle some stairs, then make a reservation. BTW - I wish Trip Advisor had better selections for areas... More

Good hospitality, clean and comfortable double room, but the single room one family member occupied was not so pleasant and too small. Breakfast could have been more variety and better coffee. Sitting at the balcony openning to the water and observing the occasional boat and tiny wharfs with restaurants and villages across the water was the most pleasant experience I... More

The hotel is situated in car-free Gandria, right on the edge of Lake Lugano. You park your car at the top of the village (the hotel will give you a day parking ticket at 3 CHF) and then you walk down to the hotel. There's a lift for bags, but humans have to do steps, though once you get into... More

We live in California and travel a lot. My husband is Swiss, so we try to get back to Switzerland every two years. When we do, we make it a point to stay at Hotel Moosman in Gandria. It's like you have stepped back 100 years in time. It a quaint little village, with narrow, winding cobblestoned streets. You need... More

We spent three nights with our 10-year-old twin daughters in Hotel Moosmann and loved the quiet and serene feel of the hotel. Beautifully located directly at the lake, we stayed in a functional family room with amazing views over the lake. The hotel embodies the historic feel of Gandria, with a small garden and narrow steps leading down to the... More

The first thing you notice when arriving to Gandria and hotel Moosmann is that you will walk many steps! This is not a hotel for person with knee problems! But when you have walked the steps down and entered the hotel you will find that it was worth it! The hotell and the rooms gives a quite "out-of-date" feeling but... More

Returned again this summer for another glorious 4 days! If you are looking for no-frills, friendly, family-run and a beautiful setting - look no further! Recommended to many, and no one has ever been disappointed. The setting is truly magnificent. A great tip (which we got from the owners!) is to drive 10min over the Italian border, and enjoy a...

This was our second visit to Hotel Moosmann, the last one being 7 years ago. We had very fond memories of the area and hotel and were worried that all would have changed in the intervening years. To our delight it was just as we remembered, not least the amazing position of the hotel at the very edge of Lake... More

We stayed for just two nights in a room with the most amazing views of Lake Lugano. Mr Moosmann and his charming staff did everything they could to ensure we had a peaceful stay in this beautifully clean hotel. Local restaurants very good and very close by. Try arriving by boat from Lugano (regular ferries to landing very close by)... More

We stayed in this hotel at the end of September 2013. There is no acces to the town by car, wich i found very nice, but on their website it says that they have an elevator for the suitcases, wich in reality is not working anymore or at least not the week end we where there. Then it says to... More
