Hotel Gabbani

piazza Cioccaro 1, Lugano 6900 Switzerland
Hotel Gabbani, a unique Design Hotel in the heart of old town Lugano, opened its doors for the first time in 2012. A symbiosis between culinary and architecture is reflected in its geometry, spaciousness and furnishings, creating a tranquil, yet invigorating atmosphere. Domenico and Francesco Gabbani developed the concept for the hotel together with the Ticinese architect Sven Panzera , drawing inspiration from the colours and contours of fine food and drink. Here the present meets the past, with hotel rooms surrounding a medieval courtyard containing beautiful open arcades, part of the former convent. The central patio that hosts our fine food shops and bar on the ground floor has a delicatessen offering a wide range of specialities as well as a restaurant for gourmet delights on the first and ground floor. A fine buffet breakfast is served on the first floor, with delicious products from Ticino, with sausages, cheese, fruit and oven-fresh bread and croissants.

Hotel Gabbani was in a great location. Very short walk to the lake and right in the piazza and shopping areas. Hotel staff was very accommodating and provide useful information. We stayed in the Junior Deluxe Suite and it was a nice size room with a big bathroom. We viewed a

My wife and I ended up at the Hotel Gabbani, last minute, after our original Bookings.com reservation vanished! While we ended up paying more for this room, we were extremely happy with the hotel and the much better location. The reception is on the first floor above the restaura

We had a lovely three-day stay at Hotel Gabbani at the beginning of June. Our room was very tastefully decorated with an up-to-the-minute design sensibility, and the free (soda and water-filled) minibar was a treat. The bathroom was pretty amazing - beautiful marble, neat light

We were rather alarmed on arrival to find the hotel almost invisible because of the scaffolding surrounding it. In fact the restoration work did not disturb us until the final morning of our four-night stay when the hammering began at 7am.
The room was very comfortable although t

"Check that the building work is over!"
"We loved Mozzarella room, but I imagine all the rooms are amazing."
"We stayed in the Orange room. Very quiet. The single chair in the corner is too low to use at the desk for writing - there are several public areas, but no place to sit and write."
"The hotel was full, so I can only talk about the Caffe room and that defenitly had the wow effect"
"Both ours and my mother in laws rooms were fantastic. For kids - we took the Rosa suite, complicated to explain, but basically, the 2 door entry system enabled us to eat downstairs with the 2nd door open (1st door locked securely) so that our kids could still call us and we could hear them when they called us...while we ate in peaced 2 floors down in the restaurant!"
