Very quiet place near Lugano, with fantastic view on the lake and it green hills! I can only recommend it! We received a war welcome from the very nice owner of the place. You can reach Lugano by boat or like we did, by bike along the lake. If you like tranquility and wake up with the birds songs, then... More

The food was okay, the staff very very friendly happy to adjust to the fact that we wanted to share some dishes bringing extra places. View is phenomenal, walk inside the hotel, very clean and great different decor.

We did not stay at the hotel, but since we were staying in Gandria we visited the ristorante at Elvezia al Lago. The location is lovely, with fine views over the lake. However, we found the service inhospitable, and the food was only average. There are bettwer restos by far in Gandria itself.

Friendly and welcoming, this little hotel is beautifully situated on the lake side and in a peaceful location way from traffic. No cars allowed down the track leading to it, which was a bonus for us. Room 5,is lovely with 2 sunny balconies opening to the lake view. Only thing missing is tea and coffee making facilities in the room.... More

Good place to have a nice lunch over looking the lake. Must take a water taxi, Kurt Saladin, from Lugano, cell +41 (0) 79 621 31 22. Service was good, nice menu selection, but the outdoor patio over looking the lake is the main attraction.

Although a lot of planning involved to get here it was well worth the journey. Rosie was very sweet and upgraded us on our honeymoon once the better room became available (top floor with dual aspect windows). We really want to go back ASAP.

Definitely dont stop here despite the great view and location! A very nice waiter seated us at 9pm, he got yelled at by the -probably- owner, menu was limited as she probably didnt want to reopen the kitchen (sign outside said open until 10.30 pm). He served us very nicely (food was just heated as served within 5 min) and... More

A small and charming Hotel, like a "secret hint" to enjoy. The location is just wonderful, not too far from Lugano (you may walk on the impressing "sendero de Gandria", and there is a small station for private boats in front of the hotel. The view over the lake is magnificent, the prices are resasonable. The owners are very motivated... More

Elvezia is a ferry stop away from Lugano, but a world away from any hint of city or tourists. The charming inn's terrace restaurant overhangs the lake and is the perfect place to laze away morning, lunch, or evening hours as gentle breezes blow and light changes on the water. The hotel and rooms are filled with antiques, but they... More
