Like your grandmother's house
Staying here is like staying at your grandmother's house...the decor is very old and outdated, the rooms very basic and in need of an update. That said, everything is clean, the people who work here are wonderful and warm, and the fondue dinner served at the restaurant downstairs (in front of a warm fire at the fireplace) is fantastic. The surrounding area is charming and beautiful. The train station is right across the street but noise wasn't an issue with us.

Nice hotel, clean and friendly staff. Restaurant was very good. Hotel across from train which is noisy with the windows open but fine when they are closed.

Simple hotel 20 minutes south of Lugano
This small and basic hotel is located right next to the train station, which can take you to Lugano in less than 20 minutes. The staff were very friendly and efficient, and they spoke decent English. The room was quite small with old-fashioned furnishings, but still reasonably comfortable for a short stay. Everything looked clean except I did see a few cobwebs in one of the corners. WiFi was free and simple. Fortunately there was an air-conditioning unit in the room that worked well and kept the room cool (not guaranteed in these parts), but it was quite bulky and made it difficult to open/close the window or see the scenic view outside. The town of Capolago where the hotel is located is quite pretty and has several shops and restaurants, including one at the hotel. Despite the steep Swiss pricing (elsewhere in Europe this hotel might be half the price), I enjoyed my stay overall and would come back.

very basic
A very basic hotel close to the train station. There's no lift so we had to carry our luggage up to the third floor. The first night was a nightmare. The room was sooo hot, the air con was not working. Since we arrived at 11:30pm and the reception closed at midnight, we didn't have anyone to complain to until the next day. So, we opened the window to get some air in but the train is so loud, so I did not sleep all night. Then the soap dispenser in the shower was empty, luckily we had one for the baby which what we've used. We complained to the reception in the morning, which to be fair did apologize and got everything working. so the 2nd night was better, but still, for the price that you're paying, I would look somewhere else.
