So this is a three star hotel and we paid $150 for a non-lake front room. Staff was friendly, room was clean and breakfast was fine. It's on the lake in a quiet town that requires either a boat or taxi from Lugano (about 20-30 minutes from Lugano station). If you normally stay in 4 star hotels the room will... More

Beautiful setting, we booked 2 days before we wanted to arrive and they managed to secure us a room with a balcony facing the lake, it was breathtaking. The hotel was very clean and quite even with our two year old! We had an amazing dinner at one of the local restaurants, booked kindly by the hotel. On our way... More

Do not miss Gandria and the experience at the Hotel Moosmann. Note that you must roll your luggage down a hill and put it on a luggage elevator and then walk down the stairs to the hotel. This place is so full of charm it must be seen to understand. The service was impressive for a small hotel and very... More

no car, no shoping, no noise. One of the most peaceful place we ever saw with a friendly service. Very clean rooms. Nice breakfast served a few meters away from the lake. No restaurant but enough just arround.

We booked Hotel Moosmann this summer on very short notice (one night away) and were immediately confirmed by the owners. It was such a relief to arrive after a long day of travel and have a room literally right on Lake Lugano. The hotel is somewhat of a maze, but the impressive part is that even though it's about 20...

We really enjoyed our one night stay at this hotel. We occupied three rooms overlooking the lake. The views were fabulous! While the rooms were a little dated, as others have said, they were very clean and comfortable and we had no complaints. The breakfast in the morning was also very good. The only problem we had was with transportation,... More

We stayed two nights at Moosman's. Be prepared to walk a distance with your luggage to the hotel. For heavy luggage there is a motorized cart to bring your luggage to the door. There are many stairs to climb. Not good if your not in good health. The staff is very friendly. The views are beautiful. The rooms are clean.... More

The Moosemann is a family-operated hotel in the tiny Swiss hamlet of Gandria, on the shores of lake Lugano. We spent a super week there this May on a hiking vacation. I stayed at the Mooseman some 20 years ago; its better than ever!! We paid a little extra for a room with a king sized bed and a balcony... More

You are intrepid and fortunate to find yourself at this hotel. It was the most romantic of our two week European vacation. We had a room with a balcony overlooking the lake. We listened to thunder and cuckoo birds! If you can handle some stairs, then make a reservation. BTW - I wish Trip Advisor had better selections for areas... More

Good hospitality, clean and comfortable double room, but the single room one family member occupied was not so pleasant and too small. Breakfast could have been more variety and better coffee. Sitting at the balcony openning to the water and observing the occasional boat and tiny wharfs with restaurants and villages across the water was the most pleasant experience I... More
