I stayed in a single room when I was in the area for buisness, it was maybe the cleanest hotel room I've ever stayed in! The staff were accommodating for my every need and I was made to feel at home. I food by the chef was great too!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Historically the Ticino region of Switzerland is well known for its many artists, writers and poets who have lived and are still installed in that area. Besides its beautiful mountains and breathtaking scenery, the Ticino has also become, in recent times, a major financial and cultural hub. Its Mediterranean atmosphere, coupled with Italian creativity and Swiss efficiency make it a great place to visit. Our hotel is situated near a quaint town in the south of the Ticino called Mendrisio. The town has romantic narrow streets, medieval and baroque churches and is considered to be one of Ticino's prettiest places to visit. There are many excellent restaurants, "grotti," in Mendrisio where you can enjoy local specialities and Merlot wine, typical of this region. The Hotel Zen is very well situated, only 200 meters from the railway station, 10 minutes by car from Lugano and 5 minutes from the Italian border. There is sufficient client parking and we have just finished a complete renovation of the hotel. We have 22 rooms available for our guests, with a cosy, modern and comfortable finish in all of them. They are divided into two price categories and each is equipped with a private bathroom, shower and a free Wi-Fi connection. Our hotel can also accommodate larger families by connecting adjoining rooms and business groups who wants to have their seminars (45 maximum) . The Hotel Zen's restaurant is fully equipped and can provide excellent meals for all tastes be it vegetarian or otherwise. Our menu includes dishes with traditional goods from Ticino (cheeses, meat, lake fishes) and several choices for vegetarians and celiacs. ... more   less
