    2 nights would have been sufficient for us.

    2 nights would have been sufficient for us. We took a day trip to Bellinzona and visited most of the popular attractions and had time to spare. We are not shoppers or people who like to hang out next to a pool and relax. If you are that type of person, the lake is beautiful and the shopping options are abundant.

    Lugano is an exceptional peaceful small city where you can enjoy the best views of the lake. Much better place to be compared to Como the busy crowded city. We totally loved this city and all the things that offers from good food and pleasant historic buildings as well as friendly people.

    Lugano is beautiful! Walking by the lake, sitting by it in chairs provided for free to the public, taking a boat ride, riding the funicular up to the mountain to see the views, all great! City bus transportation excellent.

    Everything within walking distance or short bus/train/funicular away. Great beach, amazing scenery. Lots of great restaurants. So Many points of interest to see, we unfortunately didn’t have time to do it all, but we enjoyed taking the funicular to Monte Bre, boat excursion to Melide, train to Bellizone to see the castles… Guess we’ll need to come back to see the rest!

    I had an amazing room with a wonderful view over Lake Lugano. It could not have been more perfect. The hotel was very clean, the air-conditioning was perfect, on the very hot nights that I was there, but the room also had a lovely balcony with a nice cool breeze. The view was beyond superb. The front desk and breakfast staff were excellent, and the breakfast was one of the best I have ever had at a hotel, a wonderful variety to please every nationality of visitor. The hotel was wonderfully decorated. It was truly an excellent experience.

    We were pleasantly surprised by the large size of the suite at the top of the hotel, perfect for the 3 of us without feeling crowded during our stay. Views were lovely. Location was excellent, and great for the activities we had planned: perfect for strolling into Lugano, but also close to the funicular for Monte San Salvatore and also a spa down the road that we had booked into. We loved the illy coffee machine provided and the nice welcome touches. Housekeeping were always great & kept our coffee pods topped up.

    The hotel has a great location — very close to the main square, right along the main pedestrian street, a block away from the bus and the water, and easy walking distance from pretty much anywhere you could want to go! I could even see a bit of Lake Lugano from my room! The staff were always welcoming, helpful, and kind, even when I arrived at 10:30pm.

    We only stayed over for a night in Lugano, and we did not want to spend too much time travelling to and from the hotel so the Hotel Nassa Garni was perfectly placed. For a reasonable price we got a room with a small balcony overlooking the plaza and the lake the staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good too.
