“a touch of the Orient in Switzerland”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

This is a delightful 2 star hotel with a glorious view over the lake of Lugano, and the advantage, in winter, of full sunshine all day - unusual in Switzerland for mountains not to get in the way! The hotel is built according to ecological principals - mainly out of wood. The simple rooms face south, and all have a view. There is a small swimming pool in which to cool off in the summer. The restaurant has a wonderful fire place burning logs, which makes it very cosy in the winter. The food is well prepared, and they are very happy to serve groups of up to 25 for lunch.

This hotel is located on a very high place (not very sure what Swiss call it), we had a great view of Lugano!! It was breathtaking. Just the view alone made our stay worthwhile.

The beds are bunk beds. We share a toilet with the other room which is our couple friend's room so that's ok. Our two-bedroom (Room 4&5) with toilet is separated with a door from other rooms which is great.

The owners were trusting and friendly. We forgot to give back the room keys and they just suggested to send it by post because we were already half an hour's drive away.

We had a scare when we thought the only way to the hotel is by foot up the steep rock stairs. It had drizzled earlier on so you can imagine the mossy rocks are wet.

Other than that it was ok. Although the quilts are not very soft. I have a thing with quilts.
