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.
