I visited Hotel Garni Battello with my girlfriend for a weekend. I can just recommend it. Was a great choice, plus we got a Melide Tourist card for free, for which we got a ton of price reductions for various places. The rooms were fine, and the breakfast was enough for not being hungry at lunchtime :) Oh and the...

Very nice rooms, even better view onto the lake, and great breakfast (Even for me, i eat tons of food :D ). Oh and the location!...

I was looking for a reasonably priced hotel that would fit 4 people and booked this one. It is located in Melide (a tiny cute town on the lake shore in Lugano suburbs). It is literally 15 min from Lugano center. The town is very cute, quiet; there are a few nice restaurants as well as a pizza place. Lugano's...

The "Battello" must have been an exciting place to be some 30 or 40 years ago. It has the air of the 70s, when holiday making in the Ticino was at a peak. Since then times have changed, but this hotel seems to have remained in those times. And this is visible all over the place - especially inside. The...
