Well done Motel, with nice rooms and good Restaurant. The Breakfast-Buffet (included in the rate) is one of the best I ever had in a transit Motel! I even would choose this Motel for excursions out of the Leventina.

An ideal stop on the way to or from Italy. Efficient reception, comfortable rooms and decent beds. Breakfast is average but still good enough. Price is on the (too) high side, the unfavorable euro/swiss franc probably plays a role here.

Before cross the border in direction of Italy after your splendid journey in Switzerland take a one night break in this comfortable motel where good quality exceeds his reasonable price (what is not often in Switzerland!). This place peaceful and picturesque beats all expectations :-))) for breakfast as well!

I suppose I was a bit unusual in that I stayed for a few days and did not use the Motel as a transitional stop. However I was not alone as there were several parts of winter sports enthusiast partaking in a International youth competition. Overall the Motel was more comfortable than the word Motel may suggest with a good... More

This hotel exists due to one reason, it's location. It's just after the Gothard Tunnel, a nice place to stay when on the road to Italy. The motel itself is clean, and the rooms are small but big enough for your nights sleep. However, the decoration, although new, looks like 1980's IKEA. The bed is really soft, and the pillows...

This year, it was the second time (first time was in 2009) we have stopped over in this motel on our way to or from our holiday destination - trust me, I won't try the "Third time's a charm"...
