Although a rainy (and cold) day we tried the terrace for a drink. They kindly gave us a blanket. The view is tremendous. Spritz was fine and price OK. We had some troubles to reach it cause the bus 12 does not run offen.

It's like taking a timetrip back to the 70's - in a very nice sort of way since everything is very well maintained and kept very clean. Not that you will go short of neither WIFI nor aircondition (which is in the midst of being installed throughout the hotel). Treat yourself to a room with a balcony (and a large...

The hotel is perched high on the hill with a magnificant view- you must get a room with a balcony! Some say it's 70s sytle= old fashion. For me it was quietly welcoming, good taste-not overdone, high ceiling, balcony. The service was gracious, the food very tasty- meat and fish expensive- but all other dishes within average Swiss range (...

We reserved a month in advance. Fixed menu was quickly served considering the amount of guests. Parking was pretty hard (I guess beacause of the particoular occasion). Beef wellignton was a surprise: excellent. No need to mention the view

The waiter had no idea about the bill and asked the supervisor (?) what was the right price. we spent more than 500 chf and the...

Good family hotel for a short stay in Lugano. Excellent view on top of the 'mountain' on lake Lugano. Some (quiet, because on the top of the hill + take the main road!) rooms are well oriented with view on the lake. Getting there was a bit of a trouble (traffic jams to get into Lugano). Restaurant service & meal...

We have nothing better to say other than the staff, view, rooms and dining experience was amazing. What a gem, everyone so helpful and kind, the wait staff patient with our (very broken) try at German/Italian. Nick at the front desk went out of his way to accommodate us and was so gracious would go back again in a heart...

The Hotel Colibri is a family owned hotel perched high up the shore of the lake in Lugano, Switzerland. I recommend booking a room with a lake view and balcony. The absolutely stunning view is worth the extra cost and then some. The hotel itself is a little dated inside and could do with refreshing. The room with balcony is...

We stayed at this hotel for one night and enjoyed every minute of it. The views are amazing. Book a room with a balcony if you can to enjoy it day and night. The hotel itself is simple "interesting luxury sixties style decor" but very clean and updated amenities and has everything you need. The staff is very nice and...
