We had a great time at Kristina's guest house. It was a very convenient bus ride from the train station to Castagnola, and the house was only 100 m away from the bus stop. The house infomation book included several recommendations for restaurants in the area, only 2 km away. The Mounte Bre funicular was within a couple bus stops (or a long walk), where we were gifted with gorgeous views.
Kristina was a great host, checking with us periodically to see if we needed anything. She provided an amazing breakfast spread which was delicious and one of the best breakfasts we've had on this trip.
It was a very relaxing stay, and I would wholeheartedly stay here again.
Kristina war eine tolle Gastgeberin. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt!! Das Frühstück war ausgezeichnet und das Zimmer sehr geschmakvoll und gemütlich. Ich würde jederzeit wiederkommen. Vielen Dank Kristina!!
It was very easy for us to find the location, Kristina explained it very well.
My sister and I loved the interior style of Kristinas Weekend suite. There were a lot of nice details. The suite was very clean. Kristina is a very attentive person. The weekend suite is very good situated, Castagnola is really calm, we liked the lovely view on the lake on our walks.
We also liked the lido San Domenico, its a quiet place for swimming.
I will come back with my husband for a weekend trip!
Guesthouse Castagnola was a wonderful place! Kristina and her husband were wonderfully attentive when we needed anything, and gave us complete privacy when we didn't. The small apartment is very nicely furnished, very clean and well-equipped. Breakfasts were ample and delicious. The location in Castagnola is perfect, with very good bus service into Lugao centro. We especially enjoyed the small, family-run restaurants in the area, with excellent food and friendly service.
Perfect vacation at Guesthouse Castagnola, would love to go back!
My husband and I stayed in Kristina's place for 4 days last month and really enjoyed the experience. The little suite was wonderfully decorated and very clean. The location was good as well even though it was a little ways from the center of town. The bus stop was close and we still walked by tackling the hills. The breakfast she served were also wonderful. Would highly recommend this accomodation.
We cannot say enough wonderful things about the special few days we spent at the Guesthouse Castanola. Kristina and her family were wonderful hosts. The guesthouse was impeccably designed, maintained and equipped. We will certainly recommend to all.
The Guesthouse Castagnola looks even better in-person than in the Airbnb photos. Kristina's design sense is exquisite – an elegant mix of rustic (e.g. textured walls and doors) and ultra modern (e.g. glass and stone standing shower, brand new designer sink and toilet, mini flat-screen TV). Not pictured is a desk, large window, closet (with iron and small ironing board), and a kitchen area with a small fridge, sink, minibar, utensils, plates, and bowls. Newly-pressed white bathrobes and slippers were waiting for us when we checked-in, and there were chocolate hearts left on our pillows every night.
The location is perfect. The #2 bus takes you right to Castagnola (just a block and some stairs from the Guest House). The lake is just a few steps away; take a right and you're off on a scenic walk to downtown Lugano.
Kristina and her beautiful family were wonderful hosts: charming, warm, and incredibly kind and helpful. Kristina even gave me a delicious fruit tart for my birthday and helped us out with our laundry! Her recommendations were always 100% spot-on; don't miss out on the lovely olive path stroll along Lake Lugano to the small village of Gandria. Dinner there at the Locanda Gandriese on a terrace overlooking the water and mountains at sunset was unforgettable.
