“Perfect for a week-end”
Reviewed 17 January 2013

My best friend and I were spending 1 night in the Albergo Carcani.
The rooms are freshly redecorated, nice and trendy, not luxurious but functional.

The beds are perfectly comfortable, we slept like in heaven.

The bathroom was small, but clean and with a gigantic shower cabin.
The only minus here is a sliding door which is not really soundproof - and we all know the consequences^^

The situation of the hotel and our room were perfect, from the third floor we had direct view onto the lake and the surrounding mountains, just wonderful.

Moreover the breakfast buffet offers a rich variety of different breads, cornflakes, fruit, cheese and meet, each dish fresh and with really good quality!
We were spending two full hours in the restaurant ;)

Check-out was as easy as the check-in and done in 3 minutes.
All the staff were really nice and spoke italian as well as german.

The price is rather high, we would have paid 260 francs for one night, but as I had a special price voucher, we only paid half price for the room, which made it really cheap for Switzerland.

Reviewed 28 June 2012

The clean, simply designed rooms with a beautiful view of the lake and promenade were just about perfect.

Beds were very comfortable, shower fairly spacious and modern, and there was very little late night noise from the restaurants and bars on the promenade. Noise levels may be different during peak summer season, but closing the window should take care of that.

Food in the restaurant was very good - regional risotto, Italian-style tapas, Ticino wines.
Breakfast fairly standard with addition of Italian meats.

Would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony facing the lake!
