(+) Villa del Gusto is a place for those who is looking for calm and quiet accommodation in Bellinzona. The guesthouse is run by a couple, who live at that residence. Villa del Gusto has a nice location, which is just 400m from Coop supermarket, 500m from Ticino river and 1,5km from the main railway station. The villa has a nice well-kept garden with a tiny pond with gold fishes and lotus flowers. Our room was spacious and had huge bed, separate bathtub and shower. Everything in the guesthouse is well maintained and nicely decorated including the room we stayed and all common areas. In spring and summer you may have breakfast or dinner on a terrace and listen bird singing. The hostess Michela and her husband cook very well. If you like surprises, good quality food and 3-course menu, you can have a dinner at the guesthouse. For breakfast you get home made jam with muesli, home made yogurt and home made pastry. The pastry might be different any other day. The hosts sell craft beer made at their villa, chestnut and walnut (or hazelnut) cakes, various honeys, home made sauces for pasta or bread spreading. (-)There is nothing negative I can say about the guesthouse. Be aware that the parking place is a bit narrow and better fits for smaller cars. I missed eggs for breakfast but you won't leave hungry in the morning :)

Very nice place, a little outside of the city center (10 min by foot). The place was clean and comfortable, the food was really good and the hostess was friendly and helpful. Good vibes and a very nice stay. Highly recommandable.

We overnighted in Bellinzona, the first stop in a week long road trip in Italy. Villa del Gusto was a perfect transit stop away from the old town in a residential district. The room was spacious with a huge bathroom and the off street parking was also welcome. The real treat was the dinner which the family serves only if you book in advance. The antipasti were abundant and delicious, a great way to put us in the mood for the rest of our Italian trip. The main course was also good and the chestnut cake was moist and with a touch of mountainous flare, as were the polenta cookies.

Nicely situated with a safe parking on own ground. Nice rooms without TV or airconditioning. Partly shared bathrooms. Good WiFi. We were allowed to use the terraces in the garden. A bit further on we went to get Thai food and enjoyed the meal in the singing of the frogs in the large pond. Good beds and delicious breakfast made our stay a success! You can book a dinner with the room. That must be done in advance. Is a must if you like real Italian food.

I was disappointed with the accommodation which was quite small and very basic. It did have a spectacular view of the mountains however. I hadn't realised at the time of booking that the bathroom was shared - an 'in-convenience' you might say! To get to the breakfast room one had to pass through the family's dining room and kitchen. The simple breakfast didn't offer a great choice. Secure garage parking was a bonus.
