We stayed here on our way to Italy. This friendly hotel is nicely located for a stopover: close to the highway, near the Gotthard tunnel. We enjoyed Italian-style dinner on the terrace of the good restaurant. Some drawbacks: the old and very basic furnishing (no fridge), the railway just across the street (could use some ear plugs during the night), the price (little too high, especially if you compare it to France or Germany).
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Since 1903 four generations of the Defanti family have managed their own premises in Lavorgo. A great tradition on the Saint Gotthard route. Accommodation, restaurant, food store and petrol pump: everything that a traveler has ever needed in times gone by and still need today. Positioned in the middle of the Leventina Valley, 2 kilometres South from the motorway exit for Faido, it is an ideal resting place for tourists from the North of Europe that are traveling on down into Italy. It is also a perfect starting point for hikers and sport enthusiasts of all kinds, offering many disciplines such as bouldering, climbing and mountain biking. The restaurant is renowned for it's creative and immaginative cuisine that goes hand in hand with tradition, location and innovation. ... more less
