The “Albergo della Posta” became a tourist resort in 1888, hosting its first customers passing through Astano in the wonderful Vintage rooms, which still retain their original design. To enrich the structure there is a new wing with modern rooms, a relaxation area with private pool and lawn, a magical garden that in the summer evenings turns into an elegant dining room, and finally a large parking accessible to customers of the Hotel and restaurant.

Albergo della Posta is member of “Swiss Historic Hotels”


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.
Through 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.
In 2005 ICOMOS Suisse, the International Council on Monuments and Sites, in collaboration with GastroSuisse, Hotelleriesuisse and Switzerland Tourism have given Albergo della Posta a special award “for the heritage conservation and respect of the original site; and for showing passion and love in the Ticino hotel tradition”

To be part of this group one has to keep preserving the authenticity of the building and its design with extreme dedication and care. There are only 50 historic hotels throughout the whole of Switzerland and we are staying in one of them. Boasting green land, a garden, swimming pool, and two tennis courts it is hard not to see why so many enjoy relaxing at Albergo della Posta where the only noise you’ll hear is coming from birds singing in the nearby woods.
