Interaction with Guests
I will give you a map, show the bus stops, a supermarket and a pizzeria where you can have a nice dinner for a reasonable price. I can help you with bus and train time tables.
Our flat is 3 minutes walk from the university and 7 minutes walk from the lake. You can reach the city center with all shops and restaurants in 10 minutes walk. The bus stop Ponte Madonetta is 350 m from our house, the bus stop Università - 550m.
I highly recommend you to take a bus for the first time.
From the train station, you can take bus 6 (direction Cornaredo) and in 7 min you will reach the Università. Then, you walk for 4-5 min and here you are! Notice that bus 6 does not operate on Sunday and on official holidays. Instead, you can take bus 5 (Direction Viganello) from bus stop Genzana (3-4 min walk from the train station) and get out at Università.

Svetlana ist eine sehr nette und zuvorkommende Gastgeberin. Die Wegbeschreibung war super und das Abholen und Willkommenheissen auf der Busstation nahe der Unterkunft war sehr herzlich. Es war alles bestens vorbereitet. Das Zimmer ist mit Stil und allem eingerichtet, was man braucht um sich wohl zu fühlen. Stadplan, Busplan, Abfahrzeiten, WLan, Restaurant-Tipp - alles vorhanden. Die Unterkunft ist sehr sauber und wir können diese nur weiterempfehlen. Stephan & Eliane
It was a really nice experience. The room was comfy and clean and our hosts really lovely. Thank you for everything :)
It was a great weekend in Lugano. Svetlana and her husband are great hosts and were very helpful.
The room was superb - it was very well located, comfortable and spacious. Though I only met them briefly, Svetlana and her husband were very accommodating and provided a great space for a fantastic stay. Highly recommended!
The room was comfortable, spacious and clean, decorated with candles and a myriad of orchids and other plants. Snezhana (Svetlana's friend) was flexible trying to accommodate my arrival and departure times to make sure I could get the keys and return them smoothly. The apartment is small (just 2 bedrooms, a bathroom and a tiny kitchen), in a safe and quiet area very close to the university and downtown Lugano (all less than 15 minutes walking). However, the address listed in the profile is incorrect - it is not on Via Giuseppe Buffi, but rather on Via Giuseppe Parini (which explains why folks can't normally find it without assistance).
It was a nice addition (and rather convenient) to have breakfast/coffee included as well. Shampoo/soaps and house wares (such as an iron and board, and hair dryer) were available for guests to use as well, which made it feel like I was staying with a student friend of mine - right at home.
The price is extremely affordable for swiss standards, and I would certainly recommend staying here if visiting Lugano for a short stay (there was another girl in the second bedroom staying for approximately 3 weeks, though I only stayed for a few days).
The listing description was accurate, except the bed was even nicer than in the picture! It was a sunny and spacious room, and the bed was extremely comfortable. We had full use of the kitchen. The best part was the apartment was under a 10 min walk from the lake and city center. Lana and Gregory were very warm and hospitable, and we were lucky to have had a chance to meet them. I would definitely stay here again!
