    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!

    Excellent location high above Lake Lugano with views towards and of the lake. Very friendly and welcoming staff in the hotel and restaurant. Comfortable, good-sized room, very comfortable bed. Very clean throughout. The restaurant is excellent - great food, very helpful and friendly staff. There is a lovely terrace overlooking the lake. It is very easy to park at the hotel and we had no concerns about safety. If you are passing through as we were, there is no need to change any money into Swiss francs, as the hotel and restaurant accept cards.

    Really nice hotel if you are planning a stay in Lugano. The rooms are just the right size and come with a large balcony and nice little touches. The breakfast was really good and the staff super nice. Cody beds and nice bathrooms The location is great, just a few metres from the Lakeshore and the funicular to one of the mountains. In case you are getting into Lugano by train, there is a frequent bus from the station, but the walk through the city is also not really far.

    super great location. I stay at 2bed rooms family suite, the view is facing the lake. the room was good . I would recommended this hotel . I love everything there except the staff named Antonio. the storm blew my shirt into the balcony in another room but he didn’t help and just made fun of me. he sarcastically told me to wait for the “storm to blow it back to me” I understand if he couldn’t get it , he should give a polite answer. others staffs are good.

    The staff was really nice, the location of the hotel was perfect, the price was reasonable and the room & facilities were very clean. I recommend the Hotel San Carlo to anyone who comes to Lugano and does not wish to spend all of their money staying in a fancy hotel, but rather on sightseeing and discovering this beautiful little “big” city and its surroundings which are filled with so much life that you just might want to never leave….

    The Walter au Lac Hotel has wonderful view over the lake of Lugano and the Monte Ré. We had 2 single rooms (connected) on the top floor and the view was stunning. They did offer a delicious breakfast with everything you want. On top of that the staff was very welcoming and the hotel is situated right in the centre of everything, shops, restaurants, lake, etc. We will return for sure!

    Everything was fabulous, we loved the old-world charm of the hotel, the welcome was warm, and I think they discreetly upgraded us to one of the best rooms. Breakfast was excellent, and the position of the hotel is perhaps the best in Lugano, the view from the room and the breakfast area is wonderful. I hope the family will continue to maintain this historic and delightful hotel.

    The location was excellent—10 minutes walking distance to the funicular to Monte San Salvatore and 5 minutes to Lake Lugano—and the Paradiso boat stop.

    The location is perfect. Just minutes away from Coop and Migros Supermarket. It is possible to walk to downtown and to the Lago di Lugano. It is a spacious apartment that suited really a family of four. The kitchen has enough utensils to cook a simple meal. The price was way better than most of the good hotels in town.

    Hotel Vezia is a theme hotel in which my husband and I enjoyed. He was even happier that the hotel offered a free bus voucher that allowed us to travel to Central Lugano at no extra cost. We walked 20 meters to the bus stop and was downtown within 15 minutes. Clean and comfortable room.
