The guesthouse is a perfect mix of luxury boutique and a peaceful and relaxing guesthouse. The room is spotless, the decor is thoughtful and the personal touches abound. The location is outside of Lugano city central and the perfect launching point for everything! It is also serene and quiet in the evenings. We really enjoyed our stay and the experience...

Very nice location, very charming, and very original "Ticino". We loved it staying in this beautiful apartment. The owner, Kristina and her husband, are very friendly and you can feel that they love what they do. We definitely want to visit again. PERFECT VACATION and perfect for families as well!

We had a wonderful romantic stay in Lugano thanks to Guesthouse Castagnola. The view from the property was absolutely breathtaking. We were delighted by our charming and cosy room, plus a delicious healthy breakfast. Kristina and her husband were very accommodating. What else could we ask for?

Kristimna and Maurizio have created such a special place here. Very close to a bus stop with regular trips into the centre but conveniently close of a walk to delightful Gandria. It was very very warm in July when we were here so we enjoyed having space to relax after hot long walks. We would open all the windows and...

As travelers we seek the perfect balance between experiencing the local culture, luxury accommodations, and getting the most out of any given location. Kristina and Mauri's perfect Guesthouse Castagnola delivers just that. From the personal welcome at the downstairs bar, to the locals coming through for a cafe throughout the day, and the uniquely styled private guestroom, they have created...

I would share 200% all the positive oppinions written on this site, really a precious place to be - the week-end suite is a must if you want to stay in Lugano - Kristina and Mauri are two wonderful persons and treated us like part of their family. To make this post real let me suggest just one thing: if...

1. Very close to bus stop. Take bus number 2 from Lugano railway station and it takes approx. 20 min. (100 m from Castagnola post bus stop). I will say "very convenient". 2.

Such a nice and genuine place run by Kristina and her family. Unfortunately we only stayed for two nights, Lugano has so much to offer. We look forward to come back! The bar La Strada also owned by the family offers very good breakfast were the locals hang out and have their morning coffee.

Lovely 4-night stay in the sweet little Vacation Suite which is very stylish (especially the bathroom), well-appointed and pleasant to be in as it overlooks a charming square and has no cars round it. Some noise (children playing ball in the evening) but nothing intrusive (although you will hear the church bell chiming the hours through the night unless you...
