We typically make international hotel reservations many months in advance but booked the Calibri the morning of our stay, after canceling our hotel in Lucerne due to incessant rain. We chose this hotel based upon the pictures of the view and the pool. We paid extra for a room with a view and the moment we entered the room and saw the view we knew we made a great choice. Simply breathtaking. I read complaints about the rooms being dated, but we thought it was fine, quaint even. It was very clean, and the view made up for any shortcomings. The breakfast was good, the dinners expensive, but everything is expensive in Lugano. And you pay for the view, having dinner on the terrace. The family who run the Calibri could not be more friendly or helpful. I had asked them to meet us at the station and they did, giving us a ride up the mountain. The Hotel is not within walking distance of the town, but there is a public bus as well as funicular close by. I would definitely stay here again if I were in the Lugano area. Not for those who want to be centrally located, but for those who love scenery. Absolutely loved it.
