When you pull up to the hotel you are not impressed and think is this really a 5 star hotel. Then you walk into the hotel you are greeted with a warm welcome and check in is very easy. When you go to your room the halls are in need of some repair, but when you get to you room... More

The location is great adjacent to the Lake. The Exterior of the the hotel does not lend itself to the opulent interior. The staff is well trained and attentive. The hotel is well kept. The rooms are spacious and well appointed to the extreme. The hotel has an amazing breakfast buffet that we used each day. We traveled during Christmas-... More

The Swiss diamond hotel reeks opulence. I have never stayed in a more over the top opulent hotel and I mean this in a good way. You just feel rich which sadly ends for people like me who are not rich after the one night stay. The hotel has a shuttle bus which runs on the hour to Lugano and... More

The localization is perfect .If additionaly you take the room witha a view to Lugano Lake .....unforgetable . The only problem is that the hotel has several kind of rooms and twice they wanted to give me something worse than I have paid. Rooms are clean with solid furnitures , very good bedding and towels. Breakfast very good.

Had the pleasure of staying at the Swiss Diamond Hotel and it is beautiful in every way. The staff is superb. Our room, although small, was very luxurious, plush and 5 star all the way. The property is absolutely beautiful and very well-kept. Breakfast was wonderful. Not being from the area, we were disappointed when the hotel shuttle drove so... More

On the back of deciding to do a spur of the moment shopping trip in Foxtown, we booked the Swiss Diamond Hotel due to its proximity and late night check in. We arrived at the hotel around 10PM. Whilst we had asked for a double bed, the hotel only had twin rooms left and would only consider giving us a... More

I spent two nights at the Swiss Diamond in late August with my fiance. We were lucky with the weather one day - amazing clear views of Lake Lugano, and a beautiful pool and garden/sitting area beside the lake from which to enjoy it. The hotel overall is very well appointed, in a classic style; I especially recommend the spa/pool... More

I stayed for two nights in the Swiss Diamond. The location is impressive by the lake shore, with magnificent views and access to the lake. The room was nice and totally at the level you would expect of a 5 start 'old school' hotel in Switzerland. This means contained luxury, furniture and facilities of 25 years ago, but well taken...

My husband and I are currently here for one more night and already I miss this place!!! On a trip though Italy we decided to splurge! This is not normally something we can afford to do but are so glad we did!!! From the warmth of all the staff(as we only speak English) to the atmosphere and services!!! AMAZING!!!

This is a superb hotel, I think probably the best in Lugano area. The quality at everything was phenomenal. Where to start ... the staff was very friendly. The hotel room was perfect, and I mean it: classy, spacious, very clean, everything was either new or perfectly maintained, the bathroom was outstanding, the bath had hydro-massage, and more. The hotel... More
