This was my second stay at the Stella D'Italia, the first stay was maybe 10 years ago, but not much had changed - in a good way. Check in was easy, our bags were carried straight up to the room and as mentioned in other reviews the rooms are quite basic, but clean and comfortable. The location and views from... More

This gem on lake Lugano is only a half hour drive from the ferry port on lake Como where you can visit Bellagio and other towns if you buy a day pass. The rooms are very basic but comfortable and quiet, with balconies facing the spectacular lake/mountain view. There is a sunning deck for swimming in the crystal clear water... More

This our 4th visit to the hotel; it is always one of the highlights of our trip. This time my wife and I decided just to hang around the hotel, the gardens, the adjacent village and just relax......and relax we did. The hotel, situated on Lake Lugano, has an excellent view of the lake and surrounding mountains. People come from... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and grew to love the place. The restaurant is excellent and it is woderful to be able to sit outside under the vines overlooking the lake. Lovely old village with two or three local bars and some good walks up in the hills. Unfortunately you can not walk around the lake here but you can... More

I write this three years after the event - but it's telling that the memories evoked by just looking through our wedding photos from our 5 days spent at the Hotel Stella D'Italia in August 2010 make my wife and I feel as if we were there last weekend. My wife and I have stayed at the Stella D'Italia twice... More

We've visited this hotel a few times since I last reviewed it in 2005!! The great news this year is that a tunnel that takes most of the traffic away from this tiny village on the shore of Lake Lugano is now open so (unless you are a fan of traffic wars!) it's a much calmer place. We ate a... More

We first saw this hotel 5 years ago while on a boat trip on Lago Lugano and were quite impressed with the beautiful terrace and vines. Last year we spent 2 nights there and then, 3 nights this year. For us it is the epitome of old world charm and service. Excellent food, quiet polite service, lovely rooms with an... More

Our second time at Stella and we're just as enthusiast as the 1st time. The crew of the restaurant Is so professsional yet with a good sense of humor. A dinner on the terrasse with these fanstastic views on the lake is the highlight of any trip in this lake region.

while this is one of my favourite spots on the lake - it is a noisy old box ... avoid the best rooms towards the southwest - unless you want to avoid sleeping ... when the hotel is full you'll be surrounded by toilet flushing, cussing, fornicating sounds ....
