<<"Maliswi (main base in Switzerland for 7 nights)Day trips: Zermat/ Lucern/ Zurich/ Bern/ Fribourg/ Guryeres / Murten/ Laguno/ Bellinzona/ Lugano ">>
I cannot find Maliswi. I made a guess at Maliswil, since "wil" is the end of the placename for many towns.
MapSearch.CH returned -Madiswil
Using the menus on the left, I highlighted hotels and found the Bären
I like to walk the hills in that area, and routinely stay in the Emmental near there. I stay in Affoltern im Emmental ( bus, no train, demonstration dairy (die Schaukäserei) is very interesting for all ages.) I also stay in Langnau im Emmental - the principal market town for the surrounding farms.)
I have eaten at the Bären Madiswil and the food is good. It seems like a nice hotel, and some cyclists wrote about it in the NY Times a few years ago. They had a nice stay.
Madiswill is a reasonable location from a public transport basis for day trips to --
<<" Lucern/ Zurich/ Bern/ Fribourg/ Guryeres / Murten">>
but not so much the others. And, especially with kids, a small village out in the middle of the farm country runs out of things to do rather quickly. It is nice to be able to walk around a bit, so I'd bite the bullet on cost and stay in Luzern or nrarby, or in Bern or someplace only a short distance from Bern.
I'd consider traveling from Milano via Locarno and staying in that are to see the cities you have noted in the Ticino -
<<" Laguno/ Bellinzona/ Lugano "">> (I do not know "Laguno.")
Let us know if I guessed at the wrong town. ;-)
