We just spent ten days at the Pestalozzi and loved it. We asked for a quiet room and got one - looking over rooftops and hills away from the main road. We were on the 4th floor, in an en suite room. It was extremely spacious, very clean, and well maintained all the time we were there. The beds were very comfortable, pillows a bit thin but we got a couple more, and there were several boulsters, which helped. We had a couch, a table, two chairs, bedside stands, and a lot of shelf and closet space. There was lots of light and enough outlets (once we figured out that they were outlets) to accommodate all our needs (iPad, 2 iPods, netbook). Breakfast was fine - not luxurious, but this is not a luxury hotel. Cereals, yogurts, croissants, several breads, a raisin cake, cheeses, meats, juice, a bowl of apples, good coffee, eggs if you wanted to pay extra, and treats like fresh fruit salad. The staff were terrific - the front desk women all spoke English and the dining room staff were happy to help us get things across in our minimal Italian. One of them brought us little fruit salads several times when there was none on the buffet, since she knew we really liked the fruit salad. The neighbourhood was friendly and perfectly situated; not in the dead center, which would have been very noisy, but everything was in easy walking distance: a 15 minute walk (with luggage) on easy sidewalks from the funicular which comes down from the train, 3 or 4 attractive arcaded city blocks from the lake and the center of town. Fine value for the money considering this is Switzerland. Oh, and silent air-conditioning, which was handy as it got quite hot. Finally - Lugano was a wonderful place to spend ten days.
