    I'v been in Lugano for a festival music and meeting car, and I was so surprise about the Hotel Vezia, that offert a great service and i like so much the vintage autenthic 50's architecture. I congrat all the hotel's staff for their autenthic way and vision and préservation of this old Motel. It was a great travel in the past. THX

    The mattresses were not comfortable. Didn't sleep well at all. Woke up many times during the night. Another really disappointed were the foods. If the foods weren't supposed to be American style then the dishes were supposed to have American tastes, not dried because of over cooking, or repeatly cooked, then hidden it with the barbecue sauce.

    Friendly staffs, at the reception and at the diner. Good idea of keeping the old 50's style of motel.

    Very friendly staff. I live in Switzerland and not used to people being very friendly. They go out their way to help you out. The character of the hotel is one of a kind. Having your own parking space is great. Access to city center by public transport is a bonus.

    very "urban" location.. on a pretty busy street with no view, and very functional services

    Very friendly welcome. Very consistent "user experience" built around the motel concept and the 1950's-60's ambiance. Very complete and varied breakfast service Good value for money in a 'high-end' resort

    For a 50's themed 3*** Hotel it was just fine.

    Breakfast buffet was good with homemade apple cake! Altogether generous portions and very tasty cooking. Swimming pool was a real plus.

    Location is not that close to Lugano, although the bus stops outside and only takes 10 minutes

    The pool is great, and there's a nice area around the pool for table tennis or lounging in the sun. The garage under the room is great for storing bikes.

    Unfortunately, the hotel restaurant was closed for dinner. We would have loved to try the food in the 50s style diner. We will try it next time!

    Very nice hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. You can park your car in your own garage with direct room access through stairs. For the duration of your stay you get free public transportation and 30% discounts on major attractions. The center of Lugano is just 14 minutes with Bus Line Nr. 5, which stops just in front of the hotel. The rooms are very clean and nicely decorated with a large flat screen TV. Everything is in 50s / 60s style, which makes the stay very unique and special. For the kids there's a playground on the hotel premises just next to the pool, but there is also a very large public playground just one block away. There is also a very good yet affordable restaurant/pizzeria just 2 minutes walk away. We will definitely stay there again!

    I liked very the private covered box parking under the room which was very practical for us on several reasons. Not too far from downtown, we used public transportation, less than 15 minutes to reach Lugano Centro bus station.

    Unstable wifi which required new logins every day. The AC was a little bit weak in the hot afternoons.

    Very dog friendly hotel with a very kind and helpful reception. Very practical to park your car directly under the room with your own staircase down to the garage. Narrow indeed but OK for our 179 cm wide (without mirrors) SAAB. A very good and detailed map over the surroundings is available at the reception. Excellent restaurant where our dog was allowed (even inside). The staff spoke (at least) English, German, Italian and French. The restaurant was closed on Sundays but there is a decent pizzeria across the street. And you could also get self-service refreshments at the pool.

    The a/c was limited, we couldn't make it cooler so our room was warm. The bathroom was clean but just barely. The bed was uncomfortable.

    It has a nice pool which was refreshing in the heat. We had to use our bedroom towels.

    One small criticism is that the air conditioning unit was very noisy so therefore could not use it during the night.

    The hotel is quirky in its typical 50's style. Staff are friendly and speak English well. Good variety for breakfast.

    This is the second time we stay. The rooms are consistently clean, staff is very sweet, pool is a great break for the kids after a long drive, the self-service drinks by the poolside are appreciated by all, comforters are very comfy. Plus the plantings are very nicely done (for those who appreciate plants). We love the place.
