The building and the garden are both lovely, retaining an old world charm but with modern comforts. The owners Luca and Oliver were attentive, friendly, kind and outstandingly helpful without being at all intrusive. The rates were reasonable.

Hotel Tesserete is run by a lovely couple; both husband and wife speak perfect English, French, and probably German as well as Italian. They were pleasant, the place was clean and more spacious than the other places we had stayed in Ticino, and it was altogether a lovely and restful stay. Breakfast was excellent too.

“Rooms facing west have a great view and sunsets.”

“Rooms facing the front corner of the hotel could be noisy with traffic during the day; you may wish to ask for rooms facing the back. Try to ask if there are rooms with a view of the famous mountain range "i denti vecchio" or the "old man's teeth." Wi Fi is complimentary throughout!”
