Friends of ours recommended we stay at this hotel as they had stopped their a few times on their way from Geneva to Lugano to spend the night there. The hotel is right before you reach the Nufenen Mountainpass which takes you down to the Ticino valley and then on to Lugano.
The hotel is absolutely amazing. We stayed in room no 6 which was fitted with the most lovingly restored and decorated furniture you can imagine. The bed was just a dream to sleep in, an old four poster bed with separate bed ceiling. The bathroom was not the most modern bathroom, but perfectly adequate for our stay there. The hotel itself is full of old furniture which are on exposition, you can find special lounges which real fireplaces from the 17th century.
I can also recommend the restaurant. When we stayed there they were doing real Barbecue outside from a wood fire and bringing deliciously prepared fish and meat to the table. For the starter we had ordered Beef Tartare which the owner prepared himself next to our table with our choice of ingredients.
We will definitely stay at this place again and at a price of just below 100 euros for a doubleroom including breakfast, I would definitely consider it a bargain.
