“Good location / Great Service / Very hospitable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

We Stayed in this hotel with Family and kids for 3 nights in May 12 .

The Best part of this hotel was the warm hospitality and helpfulness of the owner Ms Pizzolalato ( was an added advantage that she could speak very good English )

Another good point was its location . Walking distance from the Lake / Swiss miniature and the train station - all within 10 minutes .

The Room size was standard but the owner was flexible to provide an extra bed in the room .

Bathrooms size and cleanliness was also standard .

However without airconditioning some of the rooms may be warm in summer which can be a problem , however considering the room rates this is not a big disadvantage .

This hotel is definetely a good value for money .

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper floor are cooler and may be good choice in summer .

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2011

I were staying in the hotel for 3 nights, we found this is very comfortable in terms of level cleaningness, room space, bathroom size..etc

Nice:
1) The hotel locates in a quiet small street, very quiet at night. (night means after 11.00PM as the hotel restaurant closes at around 1100PM..before that there would be some noise from downstairs..)
2) The bathroom provides immediate hot water + high pressure jet shower, the best shower I ever had for the 2 weeks journey in Swiss.
3) cleaningness level of the guest room + bathroom room
4) Melide is quite conveniet as only 7 minutes ride on train you can reach the Lugano train station.
5) Good quality dishes from its restaurant.

I recommand this to everyone!!

(+) Hotel offered reasonable price for a roomy 4-bed room
(+) The lady owner was friendly and helpful
(+) Railway station, Boat terminal to Lugano and Swiss miniature are reachable by foot
(-) Hotel is above the restaurant - may get a little noisy in summer if you are an early sleeper
(-) There was no airconditioning - nights could get warm in summer

Round trip by boat to Lugano was excellent - don't forget to get proper directions to the boat terminal.
