We booked a last minute weekend trip to Lugano. It was so last minute that other than the Hotel Vezia, there was only one other hotel with availability on the Internet site we used. However, we were very pleased with our choice. The rooms are small but I doubt you would want to stay in the room, being that close to such a beautiful city. It made a big difference having somewhere safe and private for our car. We did eat in the restaurant and the food was nice and good value. We also used the swimming pool and the small playground, both of which the kids loved. All of the staff we encountered were very friendly and spoke to us either in English or German, when we asked for it.
