Nice breakfast featuring local sausage, cheeses, breads, etc. Great location Good wifi
No TV station listing Hard to find entrance
Warm atmosphere, cozy rooms, personable staff.. GREAT! Can't wait to be back next year!
the location and offering in the cafe are excellent.
I was in the limone room, there was too much light from the street. the service in the cafe - no salt and pepper brought to the table. and when it was the salt did not work. Tagliarini with white truffle - the truffle was too litte for a dish costing 40francs and they did not grate it at the table - very disappointing.
Location location location, we loved everything about this hotel!
-the fact that I didn't get back the VAT, although I was entitled to it. The accounting department was too inflexible.
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.
