Service is amazing. Everyone very nice and helpful. Rooms are small but very clean and renovated. Breakfast is included. There is limited choice but everything is fresh and tasty. Its by far best 2 star hotel I have ever stayed. For the city of Lugano the pricing is rather ok, though I believe it could be a bit cheaper.

I guess I didn't read the not-so-fine print. I didn't know I was spending $120/night for a room without it's own bathroom; bathrooms and showers were down the hallway. The room was a bed, table and chair, a TV and a sink. There was a daily complimentary breakfast that was okay. The location is really good, maybe 150m from the...

The Pestalozzi is a reasonably priced hotel in a quite expensive city. However, in a city with normal prices, I think this hotel would be pretty bad value. It is quite basic. Our room was basic, but clean and airconditioned. Breakfast was also basic, but that's ok. Location is very good. Not at the water front, but a short walk...

Zero comfort at a small price tag. If you are on low budget and not having high standards: this is a fair choice. Service is friendly and hotel rooms are clean. There is parking included. However, less then 10 parking spaces available. And they are gone fast. So I had to park at a local parking garage increasing my total...

I have been coming to the Pestalozzi for many years, which probably tells its own story. I find it to be a very professionally run hotel, offering a variety of types of rooms at very competitive rates. It has a big, quality hotel feel to it, with a well manned desk at the entrance, and a lovely big dining room...

An ok hotel, but it should be noted that the cheapest rooms don't have wc or shower, it is something that you share with others on the same floor. The hotel is centrally located and within walking distance to basically everything but Lugano is a small city so everything is basically within walking distance. The breakfast would have been ok...

Know what you are getting. Less expensive digs in a very expensive town. Clean beds. Showers and bathrooms down the hall. Solid breakfast and smart, helpful people on the front desk. If you must stay in Lugano and you're not loaded, stay here. Logistically well positioned.
