First of all they told us, the Wellness Area is closed. We insisted - cause we came just because of this (we had a voucher). Then... More

Homemade bread, jams, 5 different cereals, yogurt, soy yogurt, eggs, pie of the day, butter, soy drink, orange juice, lots of fresh fruits, coffee-cappuccino-cioccolata, pastries. The private room...

We stayed 2 nights in the Stella Alpina. Service was very friendly. To get a vegan cheese fondue is very special. But it was delicious! We did a nice hike directly from the hotel (by bus to Airolo and in 6 ours back to the hotel)

Super nice hotel in an amazing green valley and surrounded by different hiking options. Well connected to the SBB station in Airolo by a bus service, or easily reachable by car (and there are a lot of parking slots). Great food, great staff. Highly recommended.
