“Lake of Lugano at your fingertip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2007

It is the only (three star plus) hotel in the center of the pictoresque town of Morcote. The building is significant due to its pink colour and the romantic-historical, almost venecian style builidng. Had a room with frontal view of the beautiful Lake of Lugano. Rooms are small, but adequately equipped. As the only through road runs just in front of the hotel, there is a bit of traffic also during nightime, but as Morcorte is a quite place in general, it is bearable. Behind the builidng, in a kind of private garden, there is a very relaxin small swimming pool, we enjoyed. There is no night life, except eating in one of the lake-side restaurants - but that is romantic, the hotel itself has a restaurant accross the road on a terrace built in the lake, food, eg. ossobucco, a traditional local dish, is good and just a little bit more expensive then the other restaurants on the "lungolago" promenade. When we were there, by coicidnece, the Lugano Blues Bop festival took place on the Piazza "grande", free of chrage concerts with international musicians (mainly US), the atmosphere with the appprox 1000 auditors was great, this is really an insider tip. Back to the hotel, staff is friendly and mostly german speaking.

  • Liked — View of Lake, old-fashioned style, swimming pool, firiendly staff. location
  • Disliked — no car parking facillity, some noise from nearby road
  • Stayed September 2007, traveled as a couple
