Fodor's Expert Review Hotel San Carlo Garni

Via Nassa 28, Lugano, Ticino, 6900, Switzerland

Ideally located on the main shopping street, this friendly hotel is owned and managed by one of the nicest families in town. The rooms are tiny, but clever carpentry makes the most out of small spaces, creating niches for a mirror, television, or hideaway bed. The dining room is also small, so breakfast in bed is encouraged. Although it's near the funicular and a block from the waterfront, it manages to remain peaceful after sundown.

PROS

  • uniquely crafted rooms
  • terrific prices
  • courteous staff

CONS

  • some decor is straight out of high-school wood shop
  • thin walls
  • small spaces can feel confined
