Hotel Besso Lugano
Ranked #39 of 45 Hotels in Lugano
Reviewed 5 October 2009

We stopped in Lugano for one night while driving from Strasbourg, France to Croatia. The owner was exceptionally friendly and spoke English very well. The price was pretty good for the size of the room we had. Our room had three twin beds and a very large balcony outside. The bathroom was quite large although there was only a nice big tub and not a shower. Right outside the hotel there are a few bars & restaurants but its not close that close to the main tourist areas. The train station is pretty close by though. All and all I would recommend this place for anyone looking for a nice quite, clean room.

Reviewed 13 April 2009

The hotel is very close to the train station and a short walk down to the city(big uphill climb on the way back!) Staff don't speak English or German, making it difficult to communicate anything.

Lift was old and very small fits maybe 2 small people and 1piece of luggage. Rooms have no air conditioning (it gets very hot in Lugano during Summer) but the room we had, had a beautiful airy balcony! And it also provides quite a nice view of lugano and the lake. Rooms were simple but very tidy and clean. Bathroom exceeded expectations.

Breakfast was simple but enough to get you started for the day. If you're not wanting to go very far for dinner there is a little restaurant just underneath the hotel who make the most delicious authentic Italian pizzas I have ever had in my life!
