Nice rooms with lots of space to accommodate families with kids. Breakfast buffet with fresh products. Food and service very good and friendly. A good place to stay and explore Ticino and the lakes surroundings. 10 minutes drive to Lugano. Fair price.

After a beautiful walk, Al Ponte is a fantastic place to take in the beautiful views and have a drink or a bite to eat. A family run business, the atmosphere is welcoming and cozy. The food is good and one can pass the time away. For 12 euros each it is possible to spend the day at their pool... More

Fabiola, the owner's daughter in law made the stay memorable! We wanted to arrive at 4pm, but later changed out timing to 8:30pm. She was very flexible. When we arrived and knew we were hungry, she opened up her grocery store (just at the hotel), to let us pick food items to cook! During the stay here, it was raining... More

We were there only for the food (dinner). We ordered a salad, pasta and pizza. It was a self service buffet salad. The food wasn't bad, but it wasn't great. The service was not bad, but not great either. We went there around 7:30pm and perhaps it was because the restaurant was about to close. Unfortunately, nothing memorable for us... More

Up, up, up above Lugano with amazing views. This small, pleasant and comfortable small hotel has friendly staff. The room was simple but spacious with a spectacular view. The road up was twisty and takes about 15 minutes or so, but is not as narrow as many. The restaurant also shares the same great view with good home cooked food.... More

What an amazing feeling one has in Summer, when the morning mist disappears heated up by the sun!!!! When standing on the balcony of the Hotel Al Ponte, it often happens that, early in the morning, you are above the fog, and you literally feel like tasting that see of whipped cream that covers the entire Luganese.

L'Albergo al Ponte is a real special place thanks to the magnific view, the familiar ambiance, and a good food. Quite close to the city of Lugano, and to the highway it's an ideal place for vacation , or also quick business stay.

“Every room faces the valley, with a great view. All rooms have a terrace, but if this is something that particularly counts, as for the "suite", as it has a beautiful big terrace with sun-deck chairs.”
  • Wonderful view from the Hotel on the entire Luganese
