A great family run hotel. Lovely food, perfect views of the lakes and mountains and you can't beat the service, so friendly and welcoming. A must stay over in Ticino. Good for families and couples alike.

Room Tip: All rooms have a fantastic view of the mountains and Lake Lugano

L'Albergo al Ponte is a real special place thanks to the magnific view, the familiar ambiance, and a good food. Quite close to the city of Lugano, and to the highway it's an ideal place for vacation , or also quick business stay.

We come to Al Ponte on a regular basis, as we find the location incredible. The service is very friendly and the view from the rooms facing the lake is breathtaking. They have a decent selection of Italian dishes and some good wines too. All guests can enjoy an indoor/outdoor pool, which we find as a bonus.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

+ : Spacious, clean room, nice balcony with magnificent view, charming position, free Internet connection, many tv channels. Good quality/price ratio as I exploited a special promotion of the single room at CHF 90,=.

- : No minibar and hairdryer in the room, no room service. It is basically an average restaurant with rooms available, not a proper hotel with all the services you can expect.

The restaurant "Al Ponte" in Cademario is always worth visiting from Lugano. It provides very friendly service, good traditional food and fantastic views over the city of Lugano and the lake.
