Hotel Nassa Garni is in the south part of Switzerland, in the „heart“ of Ticino. It has a magnificent view of the lake and is right in the center of Lugano.
Score from 266 reviews Good
I stayed there several days. Very nice hotel in beautiful surroundings, the location is excellent: just a few steps to the lake. Friendly and very helpful staff. Very good breakfast. A nice bar, too :)
No tea/coffee amenities, no minibar in the rooms - but this is the hotel policy, as they say.
Location, nice big room, sight view , breakfast , old tradition design
Location was excellent Parking in the hotel excellent as it would be impossible to park in the street. There is a public underground car park near by but don't know what the rate are. Good breakfast and facilities at the hotel ie swimming pool lounge area, typical of an old style hotel.
The bed was so hard impossible to sleep. May as well slept on the concrete floor. Shower was in the bath, fairly typical, but this was a deep bath and difficult to get in and out of. No facilities in the room ie bar fridge, tea or coffee, glasses etc. also could hear noise form room next door. unfortunately could not recommend this hotel because of the bed and we are fairly easy going.
The comfortable rooms, view was spectacular from balcony, shower felt like I was in a rain forest rain shower! Beds were so comfortable, sound proof walls, never heard a soul! The breakfast was perfect every morning and staff were always helpful and polite. They helped store our bags for one last day until we had to leave; supplied us with an umbrella, and laundry service!
There was some construction going on next door that made the view sitting on the balcony a bit noisy; but nothing to really complain about.
Overall room was good.
Breakfast. Room too small.
Great location next to brand names, the lake, and promenade
great location in the center
no mini bar
Situation was perfect and staff was kind and helpful. Swimming pool area was brilliant. Breakfast was good. Air conditioning was god, because it was very hot. Atmosphere was nice. We were very satisfied in everything.
beautiful hotel. grest value for price. buffet breakfast excellent. wonderful view of lake. grest locstion. near to everything. lady reception staff at front desk not very friendly. would certsinly stay there again.
coldness snd nonchelence of reception staff.
hotel is right across the road from the lake and is close to the shops, restaurants in Lugano
Getting to the hotel could be more apparent on the bookings.com site - I dragged luggage down a lot of steps instead of taking the funicular.
This hotel is still in the same family after many years and it shows in the personal pride taken by the staff. They have retained lots of mementoes of the past and there are original artworks on the walls. Views of the lake are fantastic and it is only a few minutes walk from the Piazza della Riforma around which many of the restaurants are concentrated.
The decor and fixtures are showing their age in places, although this mostly just adds to the charm.
Very friendly staff. Great location and room with view of lake.

Location Breakfast Staff
Coffee at breakfast was pretty lousy Rooms a bit run down
Loved the grand old features of the place as well as the helpful staff and great breakfast. easy to get to from the station and right on the lake. It was great.
Pretty decor Air-conditioning worked well Choice of breakfast items was okay
Did not have sufficient outlets in the room for charging cell phones and camera batteries and using hairdryers. Several of these outlets were behind furniture or you had to crawl under furniture to access them. Mattress was hard as a rock.
Traditional set up, not glass and metal
location to all lakes in italy and switzerland. restaurant was excellent for dinner
beds weren't comfortable
Beautiful location, friendly and helpful staff. Clean and comfortable.
Loved this hotel. Its in a beautiful spot very conveniently close to the lake and in walking distance of the main plaza. All in all, its great value for money! It has lots of very interesting history as a hotel and its construction which you can discover by talking to the staff and visiting the tiny room-museum in the 2nd floor of the hotel, although images of its history are everywhere. Rooms are comfortable, good size with large wardrobes and clean. The bed was very comfortable too. The pool is a perk in the garden, specially in good weather! Staff was very friendly throughout our stay - would go again if back in the city.
