“Magnificent view on the Lugano lake, very friendly owners and personell, a bit old fashioned but worth the price.”
Reviewed July 22, 2009

We stayed for 3 nights and got this tip from the Lugano tourist office. The hotel is located a bit away from Lugano center on the mountain Brè, but it provides one of the best views on the lake!
The hotel itself is clearly dated (I guess it was built early 70's), but the owners and personell where very friendly. Also the pool is only accessible after crossing the road, but it is clean and a nice refreshment for the kids.
Meals are served on the terrace (in July, temperature is high enough), so you can also enjoy the magnificent view. Many dishes are served and even prepared at the table, giving an extra special touch. The food was very good, and Italian style with Frenh influence.
The rooms are old fashioned, but have the comfort you may expect from a *** hotel. The only thing I really missed was an airco, since days are hot in July.
We think it is a perfect hotel for a short stay in Lugano, and worth the price.

The Hotel is up the hills, and from some rooms or the restaurant you can have best views from Lugano. Pay a little bit more and choose the rooms with lake view. A little bit far from the city, but it worths. Nice swimming pool. Free parking. In a very kind way, the manager asked if we could pay cash... Nice breakfast.

Hotel Calibri is an outstanding hotel in every sense of the word. It is situated on Mt. Bri with gorgeous view of Lake Lugano, the city of Lugano, distant snow-covered Alps and close-up Palm Trees! Our room was clean, fresh and comfortable with a wonderful balcony from which to enjoy the view and climate during the day and fantastic sunsets in the evening. This is not a budget hotel by any means, but every cent paid was worth it. The dining room is elegant, the breakfasts were hot/cold and full of just about anything. The dinner was one of the best we had on this three-week trip. The couple who either own or manage the hotel are "interesting" folks.....wife seems to do the desk clerk work and will chit-chat. Husband said nothing to us but either sat at his desk doing book work or at the tiny bar talking with a friend. There is good parking and a nice outdoor pool (closed when we were there off-season). Municipal bus runs right in front so getting into and out of the city of Lugano (which is a wonderful place!) was very easy. Would we go back? Absolutely (along with our big wallet!).
