Lonely Planet review
Run by the respected local Gabbani food family and within sight of their signature shop, this gorgeous place has individually styled rooms, each with their own colour scheme built around food and the use of wood and marble – the 'Chocolate' room is dar brown, the 'Honey' room yellow, 'Chili' has splashes of fiery red, and so on. Fittings are ultra-modern and the service excellent.
Our independent authors have visited Hotel Gabbani and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Lugano.
