“Charming, secluded, picturesque and friendly hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

Across the lake from Lugano sits this charming little hotel. It is situated high up on a beautiful hill next to a stunning waterfall and offers a breath-taking view of Lugano.

The Hotel Panorama is run by a lovely Swiss couple who are very accommodating and extremely friendly. The hotel is great value compared to other hotels in Lugano. The bedroom was equipped with everything that we needed for our two night stay, though admittedly it was fairly basic. The view from the balcony is... well I don't think my description would do it justice! You'll have to visit and see for yourself!

The hotel isn't that close to Lugano as you have to walk 20 minutes to the boat station and then sail a further 20 minutes across the lake. But whilst not located centrally, this can actually be seen as a perk as the area around the hotel is tranquil and charming. Additionally, Benny and Barbara offered to collect us in their car when we had all our luggage.

Overall, my stay at the Hotel Panorama was wonderful and I'd highly recommend it to others wishing to enjoy the delights of the Lugano area.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony facing North West

Thought long before writing this review. Didn't really want anybody else to find this gem, but I think the family, who run the Hotel Panorama in Pugerna deserve it. Very personal and warm service. Couldn't be better.

The hotel certainly lives up to its name: Out-of-this-world panoramic views of Lake Lugano, the mountains and the city opposite, day and night from the vine roof terrace, where you can enjoy the best of italian and swiss cuisine prepared by the owners themselves. Local wine from the vineyards beyond and three course meals with plenty "supplemento" won't leave you unsatisfied.

The owners are a wealth of information for local trips and it's only a 5min. boat ride (taxi) to Lugano city, if you feel like shopping or bustle.

If you are looking for a peaceful, quiet stay with gorgeous food and stunning views from your room and balcony, look no further. You found it, welcome home.

We stayed for the third time now in Hotel Panorama in Pugerna. The hotel is located in a small village opposite to Lugano with a superb view over the lake and the city of Lugano. The road to the hotel is narrow which makes that there is not really traffic around the hotel. So quiet and good for the night rest. The rooms are basic but the family runned hotel still has normal prices which is not easy to find in Switzerland. So you get good value for your money. Every day you can take a dinner menu in the hotel. We can recommend this and during the dinner you can enjoy the nice panoramic view. Family Benno Schuler, the owner, does everything to let you feel at home. We certainly come back to Hotel Pugerna!
