I think it's important to start by saying, I've never taken the time to write a review on Trip Advisor or any other site - this is a first. Why now? My experience at Guesthouse Castagnola! I visited Lugano for the first time and was lucky enough to have a friend book Guesthouse Castagnola. I spent the weekend taking photos of beautiful Lugano, but also the beautiful Guesthouse - the entrance, the room, the food, the decor. It is beautifully appointed with warm charm. The breakfast was delightful and they were so helpful catering to any dietary needs. The highlight was the host, Kristina and her colleauge Stina. They were both so kind, welcoming and helpful. When we asked for suggestions on restaurants and things to do, you knew they were telling you where they would eat and their favourite things to do. Not to mention, which bus to take, what time it arrives, where the stop is and how you can buy a ticket. Lugano and the Guesthouse were so delightful that I plan to visit both several times a year.

Kristina is the best host for couples, she gave us a picnic basket gift as well as very good recommendations. The breakfast table is served with local ingredients and tea from their garden. We highly recommend to stay in this guesthouse. All rooms are beautiful with cozy details. The location is romantic very close to every touristic spot.

I stayed here for five nights in the weekend room. It is large, selflessly clean and very homey. My only recommendation is more light in the room. The windows don't give enough light so there should be more ceiling fixtures. But otherwise I truly enjoyed my time there. The breakfast is wonderful and the personnel cannot do enough to take care of their guests. I fully recommend this guest house.
