travel sites should warn you that this hotel is not in Lugano and has NO AIR CONDITIONING in the hottest month of the year.
It is not a boutique hotel, it is just a small hotel. The only good thing is the breakfast and the staff. the hotel is terrible.

It's way too pricy for what it has to offer: the rooms are small; the bathroom is tiny; the bed was really uncomfortable because the mattress was worn through; the bed was rediculously placed on a raised platform with only a slither of space to spare on three sides before it takes the plunge to the main floor, (I leave it up to you imagination why this is an important aspect); it's located on the main street of Melide village, which has considerable traffic (admittely, we had a room facing the lake, which was nice, but could still hear the road); it's located about a 20 minute drive from Lugano; on both mornings we thought we were in Alfred Hitchcock's film The Birds when we were having our breakfast.

Despite all of the above, I have to compliment the staff. They are very friendly and well informed. You feel taken care of. Regardless if you stay there or not, you should definitely try their restaurant and bar. The food is very good and the location of the bar is chilled.

Small art deco Hotel, right at the lake side, phantastic cuisine (a dream for seafood lovers :-) ), great rooms (each one completely different, greatly decorated) super friendly and service and very nice lounge bar right by the lake.

Free of charge wireless internet in every room as well as on

My husband and I stayed over a weekend. Our room -Campari & Orange) was on the small side, but nicely decorated, with a nice, modern bathroom and a HUGE terrace! We had dinner twice in the restaurant and the food (mine and hubby's) was great, as were the wines! The staff were really friendly and service was good.
There is a wine bar with lounge that looked pretty good, but we didn't have time to go.
Only problem was with parking because people who go there to the restaurant also park there so you had to wait for someone to go and then run and take the free parking spot. Be sure to get a lakeside room because the street is a bit noisy.
All in all, we had a great time and I can't wait to go back, so I really recommend this place for a romantic getaway.

Beautiful little hotel directly on the shores of Lake Kugano! Each room is differently decorated. take a look at the pictures on their web! Complimentary mini bar and coffee&tea making facilities. Breakfast...small buffet but large choice, of bread jams, cold cuts, smoked salmon, cheese.... dinner on the terrace is an unforgettable experience. The whole stay has been unforgettable!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Dellago was built as a small family hotel around 1907 and has since seen many concepts & transformations, but it has never been completely restructurated: this place has style and patina.as a holiday hotel, there is not enough space, as a design hotel we are much too improvised and for families we are far from being suitable, but for a relaxing city escape in jeans and chucks it's absolutely gorgeous. 21 simple or stylish, basic and luxurious, tiny and huge but always surprising rooms, an excellent fish and seafood restaurant, cool sound, wacky people and a lake lounge where your feet sometimes literally get wet are all perfect reasons to forget about the daily hassle for a couple of precious moments. ... more   less
