We loved the location, about a 15 minute walk down the hill to the centre of town. We also enjoyed the breakfast, the gardens and swimming in the pool, which was very...

I stayed here for a few days for work and then with my husband in June. Its a short walk from the train station, and the garden ( patio) is lovely. The rooms on the front and side of the house can get very loud ( even with double windows) so you may want to ask for a room on...

I have stayed at the Hotel Villa Selva two times in Lugano, Switzerland. The rooms are clean and comfortable with a/c in summer. The grounds are well-landscaped and lush. The pool is nice with lounge chairs around it. Dinner is a great value and very delicious. You can hang out inside the restaurant to watch tv like we did while...
