Responsive and helpful on the phone when we were delayed in transit and wanted to make sure we could still checkin when we arrived. Provided us with good and helpful information when we arrived, both as to what was going on in town, and where to get something to eat. Comfortable bed. Decent air conditioner, cooled the room well enough... More

We stayed here during our transition from Switzerland to Italy. It was a great location, 1 block from the train station and busses to Milan's airport (a 40 minute ride away). With that said... this place's AC is AWFUL. Don't even try to stay here if it is over 75 outside, you will be up all night just sweating.

Everything was very clean and the staff was polite. The AC was a little loud based on Swiss standards but normal based on US standards. The breakfast consisted of bread, cheese, meats, yogurt and cereal but this costs extra. The hotel is very close to the train station.

Recently stayed at the Albergo Stella hotel in Lugano, Switzerland. Very conveniently located close to the main train station and the Bernina Express. Just a short walk down the hill to the main area of the city. Hotel was nice, although the bathroom was a bit small, even compared to other similar hotels we stayed at in Switzerland. The staff...

The hotel was very cute. It was basically a big house. The only downside it the street in front. The hill was quite steep and the front door has more steps. There are only few plugs in the room so you have to wait your turn. The plugs are also for small ones. The location was very close to the... More
