“A good 50's hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013 via mobile

We booked this hotel because of it,s 50's charm. We were not disappointed the hotel was clean and the staff friendly, and accommodating. The rooms were well maintained and clean. Our garage led up to our room, good if you have a car. The location is good as there is a bus stop out front, department store/ supermarket next door. ATM across the road. I used the bus service and had no problems at all. We dinned in the restaurant a few nights and found the meals were american size (huge) and good value for the money. The staff were very helpful thank you Sonia & barbera.

I was here for two nights during a stay at Lugano.
Booking at the telephone was very simple.
The room and the garage space below were very clean. Although there is a major road during the night there was no street noise. Maybe the price could be a bit lower, but Lugano is very expensive and you have a very good bus system there to go within 15 minutes from Vezia at the outskirts to Lugano center. This is a 50ies style renovated motel, a nice experience. I will come back. (There is even a swimming pool at the top, which I sorrily didnt use). Thank you Hotel Vezia!

My wife and I stayed here for two nights and returned for one night a week later. . We arrived by touring motorcycle and used the integral garage parking below the room. The receptionists were very helpful. Speaking good English. The motel is set in the 50’s with great curved frontage in our view. The room was functional. We did not have dinner as this was not available the night of arrival. So check before arrival. We ate in an Italian 15 minutes’ walk down the road, great value. We also ate take away across the road in a pizza cafe 2 minutes’ walk. The bus stop is located across the road appropriately 5 minutes’ walk and tickets can be purchased by ticket machine. Select your language its straight forward. We used the bus to travel into Lugarno central bus station. 10 minutes journey. Quite cheap Euro 0.40 each approx.
The breakfast included eggs on the first morning but was not present on following mornings. Service was fine. Supermarket 2 miuntes down the road on the same side as Motel. Two petrol garages are located within 2 minutes drive of Motel.

Room Tip: The rooms at rear look into and over a bank with low level plants.

We arrived on a gloomy wet evening with a seriously failing car having limped through the Gotthard tunnel. We were very pleased to find this hotel close to the motorway. What a find!!! We were warmly welcomed and shown our very comfortable and clean room with its own garage. The hotel owner couldn't have been more helpful on the car front, even calling on a local mechanic to make an initial assessment. They located a local landrover dealer for us and helped us with all of our negotiations. The friendly and helpful staff suggested things for us to do in Lugano and directed us to local buses. They recommended and booked tables for us at two traditional local restaurants. We shall be back when we return to pick up our car.

We were making a tryp through the Alps from Spain and we stopedd there for two nights.From the welcome with a welcome drink through the complete buffette brekfast and the dinner with good american Burgers were special old nice fashioned.
But more important than this was the special attention that all de personal offers always smiling and helping to make a comfortable stay.
For bikers have a private parking under the room is very important.
rooms are comfortable and good cleaned and with good air conditioned.Only bathroom needs a remake more modern style.

Stopped off for one rainy Sunday night between Reims and Lake Garda, Rooms were small and decor was old and faded (clean though). Odd pictures of random cars, combined with an unusual seperate Lounge/dining area, more a Motel/Travelodge than hotel, and overpriced too.

Dear Mr. Tim,

we thank you very much for staying with us.
The Hotel Vezia is an authentic 50s Hotel. It has been built in 1956 in the typical American style of this time and was later renovated maintaining its 50s spirit. Therefore you can find this kind of 50s-retro-decoration, with a juke box, pictures of vintage cars and of famous people who lived in the 50s, like Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, Elvis Presley, etc. Maybe you have also seen the Vespa and our original pink Thunderbird-cabriolet of 1956.

Having a separate lounge/dining area (the “Diner”) was also very typical in the 50s. The big advantage is that the hotel guests are never disturbed by the noise of the restaurant. Besides the local (Italian) cuisine, we offer in our restaurant several American specialities.

We hope to welcoming you soon again at Hotel Vezia, so that we can show you all these things and you can feel the authentic 50s spirit.

With kindest regards,

Conny Wilke
Co-Direktorin, Hotel Vezia

We had a very quick stay here one Sunday night breaking a journey from Reims to Florence. I have to say we loved it. I had chosen it on location and price; this was quite reasonable compared to just about all the other hotels in Switzerland.
It had a very comfortable king size bed plus a comfortable single for my daughter. The shower was superb and I could not fault the cleanliness. As other reviewers have indicated we had a garage under our room with private access which was very hand as it was throwing it down with rain!
We did not eat at the hotel as we were on a flying visit but ate in the evening at the Italian ristorante directly across the road which was perfectly fine. The hotel staff were extremely friendly and had big smiles to greet us.
Lugano is an absolutely beautiful location and this is a very nice, reasonably priced hotel (with easy parking) from which to visit it.
