“Very friendly staffs but noisy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2014

I stayed in this Hotel for one night. The owner was very friendly. The breakfast was perfect. Cheese, Salami, Ham, confiture Joghurt (regional) Orange Jus, various bred and croissants.
Unfortunately i had the room over the kitchen. It was very noisy. The bed was very short and small. No international TV Channels. If you come with your own car be sure you are a good driver, the street is very small and much curves! Kind of too expensive

Room Tip: Don't book the with the single bed

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

very many thanks to aldo, franco and their team. we stayed three nights here, at the beginning of november and had a wonderful time. mugena is a very pretty little village, amidst the chestnut trees, in the mountains. above lugano. il castagno was just what we were looking for, and wanted, for our get-a-way. the room had a lovely view, and was very clean and comfortable, having all necessary amenities, plus an orchid - a beautiful idea. we thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast buffet, and
had three excellent dinners here too. the attention to detail, and the decoration in the restaurant were very attractive. hope we can return again one day

Very friendly people, but if you can't sleep at night because your window is right above the hotel café, where people sit outside and talk (loudly) until well after midnight), and the room doesn't come with curtains to block out the street lights, then the whole experience is not very positive. If you do have to drive over a very steep mountain road, you expect some peace and quite in the Swiss Alps. The hotel was clean and the WiFi was good, but it's not worth the (large amount of) money or the trip to stay here.
