Caroline Hotel Brusimpiano

Reviewed June 8, 2012

After travelling from Lake Como to Lugano and collecting a hire car we wanted a hotel just out of Lugano where we could relax before continuing our journey. This hotel is in a quiet, pretty village, walking distance to Lake Lugano. It is elevated with a lovely outlook and very quiet. It only took about 30 minutes to get there from Lugano and as it is on the Italian side of the lake, less expensive than staying on the Swiss side. Very spacious, clean room. Comfortable beds. Pleasant breakfast. We enjoyed our stay. Very good value.

Room Tip: We asked for a balcony with the room and were on the first floor overlooking the pool The balcony g...

We had a good stay at the Caronline Hotel. It was a good en affordable place to stay on our way to tuscany. The room was simple, but with a beautiful view over the Lugano-lake. The shower whas small en the pressure of the showerwater low. Breakfast was great. Good food and really good coffee, especially the cappuccino!

Stayed here in Sept 2012
The staff in all departments were incredibly helpful. They tried to get a TV channel showing a football match i wanted to watch and although unsuccessful (the new owners had recently bought the hotel and had inherited problems with Sky from the previous owners) they tried for at least 15 minutes which was more than I could have asked for.
Free wifi in the lobby, terrace and poolside, Sky channels on TV inc Sky News for free.
Although 4 star they had a pizzeria, so you could get a main course for 7 euros.
Easy access (by car) good parking and nice pool.
New owners seem to be making a good job of it.

This hotel was extremely nice. Nostalgic looking, with clean, decent sized rooms. The balcony overlooked an amazing scene - mountainous lake, little villas. The staff was helpful, the breakfast was OK (nothing special) and the internet worked well. The only downside was that the hotel was not near anything. We had a car and there wasn't even anything within a short drive. If you want a relaxing, beautiful place to get a good night's sleep, this would be perfect.

A peaceful location set back from the lakeside. Particularly helpful staff, bi-lingual, as our car had broken down. Full marks for their efforts. Comfortable room good view over lake. Restaurant offering a la carte and pizza and a decent dark beer, Wish we could have spent more time in the area.

The Hotel Caroline is a villa-style hotel located in the small village of Brusimpiano, adjacent to Lake Lugano and a 15-minute drive from the city. Since the hotel is on the Italian side of the lake, prices are in euros, and you should allow time to pass through customs on your way to and from Swiss destinations. It is well marked along the lakeside road up a short uphill drive adjacent to its associated pizza restaurant. There is an outdoor pool above the restaurant, but the hotel does not have a view of the lake. The main entrance is adjacent to the pool, and WiFi available at 5 euro charge from the lobby, There were some problems at check-in: the online rate that I was quoted was revised upward by 10 euro: be sure to bring your receipt to protect your discount.

Rooms are located in the main villa or in the coachhouse across the parking lot: I stayed in the lower room of the outbuilding. The doorknob was broken from the inside, so the only exit was through the sliding door: the room was otherwise clean and comfortable. The TV picks up a few local channels; the bed was comfortable although the pillows were minimal. The tiled bathroom included a large tub with a hand shower: there was adequate hot water and pressure.

A breakfast buffet is served in the main villa, and is very good. A variety of pastries, fresh coffee, cheeses and meats, cereals, fruits and juices were available. The restaurant is also good: their pizzas are huge and easily serve two people. This is a good economical alternative to the much more expensive resort properties across the lake, but there were a few problems that interfered with the otherwise nice food and ambience.
