Guest reviews for Hotel Pestalozzi Lugano

Everyone (1)
2 out of 5

this is a tired hotel

Pros: location
Cons: everything
Location: it is in walking distance to a lovely park and close to the lake tour boats
This hotel is in a good location but it needs a complete overhaul. The rooms are on the small side as compared to other hotels that we stayed in. Everything in the room was old and worn out. Not one of the help in the restaurant spoke english and the menu was in Italian. On top of that the food was just adequate. I could not recommend this hotel to a friend, if I did I would no longer have that friend.
