Those in seek of peace and warm hospitality find it here - with the Albergo della Posta known for its excellent cuisine and nostalgic ambiance. Rooms in the main building are furnished in vintage style, while those in the building adjacent reveal modern simplicity; some of which also with a balcony or garden seating area. Ticino style gourmet restaurant, pool in the park, banquet and seminar facilities, tennis courts and free Wi-Fi.


Albergo della Posta, which literally translates into post office hotel, takes its name from Astano's old post office in the Malcantone municipality. In fact around the 2nd half of the 19th century Albergo della Posta was built exactly where that old post office once was. Upon completion of the additional building facing south, the first guests were hosted at Albergo della Posta in 1888. Along the 20th century the hotel was renovated a couple of times: In 1964 the garden, terraces and swimming pool were added to the initial dining room. The furniture, dating back to the opening of the Albergo, was partially renovated as well. Twenty years later the nearby land was bought and an extension was built following the project of architech Dolf Schnebli from Ticino.

Swiss Historic Hotel

Once a post office, this cosy hotel from the year 1840 became a guesthouse in 1888 - and counts as one of Switzerland’s top 50 historic hotels. A noble Ticino style establishment that underwent expansion through the architect Dölf Schneebeli during the 80s - with a unique collection of photos from 1890 to 1940 capturing the winds of change. Interior features reveal diverse eras and Sala Ticinese with fireplace. Exquisite cuisine and regional dishes - served in the beautiful park (weather permitting).
