Very dog friendly hotel with a very kind and helpful reception. Very practical to park your car directly under the room with your own staircase down to the garage. Narrow indeed but OK for our 179 cm wide (without mirrors) SAAB. A very good map over the surroundings is available at the reception. It is a “motor bike map” but...

We really gamble by choosing this hotel and it was a jackpot! really! The place looks like an old time motel but is much much more. The staff, especially Camilla, were all extremely nice, so helpful and so effective. Every think we asked for it was always yes! really a great service. The private garage under the room is a...

We love Lugano anyway but this place was a first try for us but we'll be back. The lady who runs the place is lovely as are all the staff (friendliness and warmth shouldn't be surprising but it is all to often missing at hotels and B&Bs). It's a fantastic place to stay for those with small children (our 4yr...

Staff extremely welcoming, efficient and friendly for this motel by the roadside on the outskirt of Lugano. Rooms are different one from another (try picking the one that suits you best) but they all share the same 50's spirit. In-house restaurant is a good option. This could be a nice bikers spot but current swiss franc conversion rate doesn't help...

This is a very quirky hotel, based on the popular image of 1950's style American motels. The people are friendly and the rooms are clean and the swimming pool was a nice surprise. All in all, its a decent place to stay while passing through.

We had a good stay in hotel Vezia. Positive points: - Very friendly and helpful personnel. - Very clean room. - Car downstairs in own garage. - Nice pool for kids. The beds are far too hard in my opinion, but I asked for a softer bed and they changed it immediately.

Great quirky Hotel. Like looking back in time at the American movies. We arrived on the Friday evening, staying just one night. The Receptionist was lovely, her English was very good, as they were quiet she upgraded us to a larger room with air-conditioning. She couldn't have been more helpful. The Hotel is done out with old jukeboxes, and coca-cola...

“Rooms to the street (those with the garage) are bigger but noisy. The room in the back are quiet but a bit small. The garages are from the sixties. Cars where a lot smaller at that time. If you drive a big US car or a SUV this is probably not the best option. They have also parking lots outside.”
