“good value, quiet and inexpensive but only 3*...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

This family run pensione is settled in a lovely peaceful location with a good restaurant (there is a pizzeria a few mins walk away which is very good and cheaper!) and in my opinion is a great alternative to a busy and expensive Lugano. I would recommend for couples and families travelling by car. We had a problem with a hire at Milano airport and ended up travelling by public transport, which was a disaster as there was a bus once an hour from Lugano (other side of the train station, long walk from the lake and even people at the information centre didn't know where it was!) and last service run at 6pm... We liked it and didn't regret staying there but there was a few things we didn't like and this is why I am giving 3 stars: there was 1 bathroom to share between around 6 rooms on 2 floors, mattress in our room was so used that our backs hurt every morning and even though breakfast (served on a sunny terrace) was good I don't think 1 tiny roll per person is enough.

Room Tip: ask for a room with a balcony on a high floor (those facing the church don't have balconies but...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Small bed and breakfast family run affair, with a lot of soul. Set in the mountains just 8 km from Lugano with parking and regular bus service. the bus stop is only 3 min away.
It is great for visitors who dont want the hustle of trying to park in expensive and crowded Lugano.
There is a very good restaurant and a fantastic summer garden in front with local specialties prepared by the owner.
It truly represents great value for money in Lugano.
