Cozy accommodation and exceptional host. Kristina went above and beyond for us to have a great stay. She accommodated for my husband's allergies, upgraded our room to a suite and helped us plan trips and activities. Really enjoyed being her guests.

Nice calm atmosphere, great rooms, clean and fully equipped. We could prepare breakfast in the fully equipped kitchen, which had a selection of sweet and salty ingredients. We appreciated the free coffee machine and capsules. We really enjoyed our stay here and highly recommend it if you are looking for a nice and unique place.

The guest house is fitted with a flat-screen TV. Towels and bed linen are featured in the guest house. The accommodation is non-smoking.

Exhibition Center Lugano is 2.3 km from the guest house, while Lugano Station is 3.3 km away. The nearest airport is Milan Malpensa Airport, 68 km from Da GianFi Lugano-Pregassona - Stanza privata - Adults Only.

Gian was extremely accommodating, despite us completely missing the check in time. The room was comfortable and clean, with plenty of storage and a safe. The flat overall was also comfortable and airy, though we didn't end up taking advantage of this much. And of course, the host went to heroic levels of effort to ensure we had a great stay - he really saved our whole trip. Also, lovely cat. 💜

First and foremost I want to say Big Thank you to hotel's staff at the reception, excellent guys, everyone was so very helpful with everything - guiding us re sightseeing and available discounts, arranging some passes for public transport, printing some tickets, advising very nice restaurant for dinner nearby. Grazie mille! Hotel is ideally situated in the heart of Lugano, close to funicular which brings you to railway station, close to embankment of the lake and various shops, including big supermarket Coop. Comfortable beds, good breakfast.

Osteria Garni Americana is located in Lugano-Cadempino, 5 km from Lugano’s city centre and 3 km from Lugano Nord/Ponte Tresa motorway exit. Free WiFi is available.

The Americana’s simply furnished rooms come with private or shared bathrooms. Some have a balcony.

The location was perfect, 1 minute from a bus that takes you to lugano center or ten minutes from the train station. Giuvana the host was SO nice and helpful. She explained us everything about averything. And even when we went for a day trip to Milan she gave us her umbrella just in case. I really recommend this place if you are planning to be around lugano because the price is fair, the room is big and the location is perfect.

    Good breakfast and the breakfast host Katia is exceptional - her passion and hospitality is charming. The room is clean. The mattress is comfortable and supportive. It’s quiet overall - we could sometimes hear when neighbours opened or shut their doors or people upstairs pulled their chairs. But nothing too disruptive and people are generally quite respectful. The stay comes with vouchers for free public transport in the city and discount for funicular rides and museums, which is very handy.

    Very well appointed apartment, ground floor (couple of small steps to enter), felt as if newly renovated and furnished. Excellent kitchen, eating space indoors and outdoors in private courtyard. Washing machine and clothes horse, full sized fridge and freezer. spacious bathroom. In quieter part of town, but easy walk, bus to city centre. Hosts great- air-conditioning not yet installed so promptly supplied fans as weather was warming. Lots of little extras such as power plug adaptors. Great wifi.

    Probably the best view you could ever hope for and was so easy to get to town either walking or by the bus (which was super cheap) meant that you really didn’t miss out by not staying right in the centre. Monique was a great host and recommended a lido that was a bit further out of town that was fantastic

    Great location for our overnight stay en-route home after our summer vacation. The apartment is within walking distance to the centre but in quiet residential area. The apartment is new and exceptionally clean. The windows and small balcony made the apartment seem quite spacious even for a family of 4. Valentina was an excellent, welcoming and informative host. There was cold water, tea, coffee, fresh fruit and a bottle of wine waiting for us. We parked our car in the secure parking and walked everywhere.

    Riccardo is an extremely friendly and helpful host, it was very easy to get in touch with him. The apartment had everything we needed, very clean and all the amenities listed were there. The apartment's location is about 10 walking-minutes from the city center and has the private parking option, the view from the balcony was really nice. Great value for a great location.
