      It is a great lake view at this hotel. A woanderfull position and an uniq location.

      A litle bit too expensive comparing with other luxury small hotels ...

    • Family with children
      5.0

      The views of the Lake. The garden was also very beautiful.

      The pool was very basic, there wasn't even a jacuzzi. The staff at reception were not very accomodating. Every service or add-on had an additional charge.

    • Family with children
      10.0

      At this hotel you wish to stay, and if you leave you wish to come back. We loved everything about Villa Castagnola. When travelling with small children you don't want any disappointments: dirt, noise,unfriendly people, and you don't want to worry how your baby will sleep , what he will eat and where play - so add some extra money if you can and GO to this hotel!!!!!! Don't waste you money on those hotels which are not worthy to stay at, really people! This hotel is fantastic! Hey, but leave a room for us we gonna come back!

      The best place to stay at Lugano. Splendid interior hotel in a quite and green location with the beautiful view to the lake and the mountains. One of advantages is a lovely private lido (access to the lake).

      I visit Lugano 3/4 times each year. I stay at the Villa Castagnola because of the location and the hotel's services. It is an excellent hotel and fairly priced for what it is. It is the best hotel in Lugano.

    • Older travelers

      No doubt that Villa Castagnola is the best choice to stay in Lugano. Wonderful park, exceptional view, very comfortable and clean rooms. What is also very important - you can sleep with the open balcony without any noisy streets.
