“Great hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2010

Great location, great hotel, everything was fantastic.
Stayed at the Carina Carlton early July and it was beautiful weather with warm temperatures. So if you go in summer ask the reception for a fan for the room. THe hotel has a beautiful view of the lake, the road is not too busy passing in front since its a small road connecting the villages along the coast. Parking can be a little complicated in the high season but with a bit of luck you'll find a space 10m away!
The food in the restaurant is really good, quality wise it was good too and its value for money.
There is a pool at the hotel which is perfect with a great view of the church high above the village. By all means visit the church even though there are 500 steps to get up there!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2009

Nicely decorated hotel with a very enjoyable pool. Staff is cordial and very helpful. The hotel is located in the heart of the small town, a minute away from the station to get to Lugano by ship.

Restaurant's dishes were delicious and not overpriced.

There are no free parking lots, but parking in front of the hotel isn't so expensive.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2007

It is the only (three star plus) hotel in the center of the pictoresque town of Morcote. The building is significant due to its pink colour and the romantic-historical, almost venecian style builidng. Had a room with frontal view of the beautiful Lake of Lugano. Rooms are small, but adequately equipped. As the only through road runs just in front of the hotel, there is a bit of traffic also during nightime, but as Morcorte is a quite place in general, it is bearable. Behind the builidng, in a kind of private garden, there is a very relaxin small swimming pool, we enjoyed. There is no night life, except eating in one of the lake-side restaurants - but that is romantic, the hotel itself has a restaurant accross the road on a terrace built in the lake, food, eg. ossobucco, a traditional local dish, is good and just a little bit more expensive then the other restaurants on the "lungolago" promenade. When we were there, by coicidnece, the Lugano Blues Bop festival took place on the Piazza "grande", free of chrage concerts with international musicians (mainly US), the atmosphere with the appprox 1000 auditors was great, this is really an insider tip. Back to the hotel, staff is friendly and mostly german speaking.

  • Liked — View of Lake, old-fashioned style, swimming pool, firiendly staff. location
  • Disliked — no car parking facillity, some noise from nearby road
