Hotel Gabbani, a unique Design Hotel in the heart of old town Lugano, opened its doors for the first time in 2012. A symbiosis between culinary and architecture is reflected in its geometry, spaciousness and More furnishings, creating a tranquil, yet invigorating atmosphere. Domenico and Francesco Gabbani developed the concept for the hotel together with the Ticinese architect Sven Panzera , drawing inspiration from the colours and contours of fine food and drink. Here the present meets the past, with hotel rooms surrounding a medieval courtyard containing beautiful open arcades, part of the former convent. The central patio that hosts our fine food shops and bar on the ground floor has a delicatessen offering a wide range of specialities as well as a restaurant for gourmet delights on the first and ground floor. A fine buffet breakfast is served on the first floor, with delicious products from Ticino, with sausages, cheese, fruit and oven-fresh bread and croissants. Less
