A very cute hotel with a beautiful view to the independence square and the lake. Just in front of the congress center and the famous civic park. The hotel offers a parking lot which is very useful if you come with a car. The hotel has an average size elevator which fits a manual wheelchair without problems. The single adopted...

We had dinner here and it was quiet, fast service and the waitress was really sweet to the kids. The food was ok, price wise is also good considering the portion was generous Definitely a good restaurant option when in Lugano.

Hotel Pestalozzi is a very good place to stay in Lugano. It is very close to lake and if you are lucky you can get a room with view on it. Room looked new, modern and very clean. The service was very good, people were very kind.

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...
