I have been coming to the Pestalozzi for many years, which probably tells its own story. I find it to be a very professionally run hotel, offering a variety of types of rooms at very competitive rates. It has a big, quality hotel feel to it, with a well manned desk at the entrance, and a lovely big dining room... More

An ok hotel, but it should be noted that the cheapest rooms don't have wc or shower, it is something that you share with others on the same floor. The hotel is centrally located and within walking distance to basically everything but Lugano is a small city so everything is basically within walking distance. The breakfast would have been ok...

Know what you are getting. Less expensive digs in a very expensive town. Clean beds. Showers and bathrooms down the hall. Solid breakfast and smart, helpful people on the front desk. If you must stay in Lugano and you're not loaded, stay here. Logistically well positioned.

Please be aware of the price per room in this! The low price is only with shower and toilett on the floor but there are a few of it. If you have bathroom in your room it is much more expensive but still quite good for Lugano. They have very good breakfast, friendly staff and good dinner. But everything reminds... More

Stayed in early May in this nice clean centrally located hotel only a few blocks from the Lake :) I had asked for a top floor room and was surprised that these rooms have a private terrace with views at no extra charge!

I spent two nights to Pestalozzi in a single room on a business travel. The hotel is too basic. The room was too small (most probably the hotel offers single-use rooms with a single bed, but other hotels offers you double rooms for single use, which are more comfortable, at the same or even lower price). Bathroom was also basic... More

We spent three nights in this hotel and enjoyed the nice food. Both dinner and breakfast were good with fair price. The only problem was the bathroom. The pipe clogged in the first night. After several hours of waiting, the staff finally repaired it.

The staff was very friendly and helpful, which is the most important thing for me. The room (single room) was small but had almost all necessities. One thing that is missing in the room is an electric kettle for making tea. However, the friendly personnel immediately gave me a kettle of boiling water when I asked. All in all, I... More
