Overpriced and poor breakfast
Hotel Gabbani was a very fine place to stay! Clean, comfortable, and staff was friendly.
It was hard to find in the rain! And had to ask several people in our Italian English!
location price free wifi
not good breakfast no free park
Excellent breakfast. Overflow shower situation was promptly and effectively addressed.
The decor is very striking, in fact picture-worthy, but the room was not the last word in comfort, although the most important item, the mattress, was fine.
The breakfast was great, with a good variety and great coffee. The location in the center of the old town area was very convenient and accessible to just about everything to see in Lugano.
The exhaust fan and one light was not working and after telling the staff, no one came to fix either one during our two night stay. The rooms are unique, but fairly spartan for the money.
The best hotel in Lugano and one of the best we've ever stayed in!
Hotel had a great location, and friendly helpful staff. Great room, with good facilities, and modern feel.
All was great
Everything there was Swiss excellent !!
Beds and bathrooms were comfortable and clean
It was noisy, breakfast is very boring although right above a delicatessen food store
the cleanliness of the room, the location and friendliness of the staff at reception
Room slightly small and pricey for us coming from South Africa. Had similar rooms elsewhere on our trips, bigger, and at a better price, like NH Marina in Genoa Tony Cesano (Johannesburg, RSA)
good modern hotel with friendly stuff and nice restaurant. Terrific buthroom
ABSOLUTELY impossible to sleep (noise from the street and from within). And we asked quiet room!
Small eatery in the hotel. Food was excellent it was like eating at home, but much better. It was wonderful to have a specialty food shop on the ground floor, great to learn about regional food. Staff was extremely helpful and willing to help.
The way the rooms are set up and designed with open space between floors though nice and spacious, however can be very noisy. The standard rooms without windows to outside can be claustrophobic.
Very convenient if you come by train or public transportation. Nice little room with well equipped bathroom. Good breakfast.
Room is small
Very good location, wifi and breakfast were good.
Room dark, window gives in to an inner courtyard and felt very closed in. Noisy.
Location was fantastic, only a few steps to the funiculare to get to the main train station. And only a few steps more to the central piazza and the lakefront. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. The room was very clean with a giant brown marble bathroom. The room was peaceful. Right downstairs was a great little cafe. You can't go wrong with the Gabbani.
Very helpfull reception staff Very cosy place, and very nice rooms with all facilities that you could dream of
The breaksfast was OK, but didn't follow the standard of the hotel
Good central location, and both a spacious room and bathroom.
Room was far too stuffy; had to leave the air-con on the whole night. Each room also has a name; ours was 'Mozzarella.' I don't think an all-white room is the best idea as every little mark shows.
Great location, right at the bottom of the tram to the train station and walking distance to everything in town. Great staff. Loved the cafe. Word to the wise, if you're a guest, you can have coffee and drinks at anytime at the reception area for free, instead of paying at the cafe.
Some noise, but not much.
The staff is awesome. Breakfast is very good. Rather quite consider it's in the middle of downtown. Good location. Would go back again.
Room is little small.
Great location! Was given the best room upon arrival as free up-grade :) Very tasty breakfasts. I wish I would try a restaurant downstairs, but it was closed.
Mirror in the bathroom is too far away.. Very difficult to do make-up, especially for people with glasses. No other mirror in the room (could be added in the wardrobe, for ex.)
The location is perfect and right in the middle of the town The hotel staff were really friendly and helpful and even gave us a recommendation for a trip on the Sunday which was perfect The room was fantastic and we really liked the design and feel The restaurant and shop down stairs that are connected were excellent and we brought some great produce Would high recommend this hotel to anyone staying for any length of time
Location perfect. Clean, neat air-conditioned and very chic.
Can be a bit noisy on Wednesday evenings but the owner went out of his way to give us an ungraded quieter room. Thanks Dominico, we really appreciated what you did for us.
Sound proofing, cleanliness, bathroom and decoration.
Wi-fi signal is weak and with a great Salumi shop, they should have even if a small room service, loss of revenue and comfort for the guests.
