This little hotel offers a very homy, cozy and comfortable atmosphere. The beds are very comfortable as well, the bathrooms clean. The breakfast buffet is good, the food fresh. The owners are very friendly. Perhaps the best hotel in this mountain area!

Stayed here on our way to Luzerne. We had a nice room with down-filled blankets. There were beautiful views from the windows and an elevator. The restaurant was exceptionally good and we had one of the best meals of our 4-week european trip here. There was free parking across the street and I appreciated the paperwork explain which TV channels... More

This hotel was a complete surprise. I stayed there the night before walking the Gotthard Pass, I was really only looking for a bed and a decent breakfast. I had a large room in a style I can only qualify as retro. I've seen it a few times in Switzerland and it always cracks me up: the room is as... More

Many thanks for your kind words Andreanne75. Unfortunately, the seasonal character or our destiantion makes it difficult to renovate as often as you would expect in a city hotel, however, we take pride in maintaining the hotel is very good conditions.

Having come claimed St Gottard pass in sunshine I checked in, last minute, at Forni. Great dinner, friendly staff and good room. Woke the following day tk filthy weather so decided to extend for another night. Spent the day in the bar / lobby chilling and using speedy WiFi for my blog. Perfect for my needs at a reasonable price

Have stayed here over the years and not as good as it used to be. Rooms and bathrooms, whilst clean, need to be updated. Rooms at front overlook railway track and tend to be noisy. Breakfast used to be superb, but now a lot less choice available. No more home made jams but standard supermarket stuff - a sign perhaps... More

Stayed here by accident when the company I work for, the removal lorry broke down just outside on our way down to Italy. Opened up for us at 2am, was clean, comfortable and friendly! Amazingly beautiful place, I will return for a ski holiday, very tranquil! :)
