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

I went there for a weekend with a friend. The service was welcoming and professional. We had lunch, dinner and breakfast there and the food was also of a good quality. Lunch and breakfast were served in the terrace overlooking Lugano lake which was breathtakingly beautiful. The room was spacious and classy, with a nice big bathroom, both very clean.... More

The Hotel has very polite staff, knowledgeable and helpful. The rooms are elegantly decorated and the wellness area is also up mto top standards (maybe a Little bit too small, only 6 resting... More

Grounds are large, well kept, lots of space to sit out near the lake. Very nice outdoor pool. Beautiful restaurant overlooking the pool. Buffet breakfasts ok, only selection of cereals, cheeses...

The Swiss Diamond hotel is nice, and it tries to be elegant, but it is not accurate to say it is in Lugano as the hotel name implies. It is really closer to Morcote which is not all that close to Lugano. The hotel offers a shuttle to take you in to Lugano, but you need to schedule a ride... More

Beautiful hotel, a little away from the city. The restaurant has amazing service and the classiest breakfast buffet around (once you fill your plate they carry it to the table). They have a shuttle that will pick you up from the Melide train station).

Lovely hotel right on the lake. The rooms are nice sized and well equipped. The service has been very good. We had an interesting meal at the Lago restaurant. We had a group of 16, and the dinner was flawlessly handled. There are many outstanding hotels in the area. If you are looking check this one out. The rooms have... More

I stayed one night for business and really enjoyed this short stay. Fast check-in, friendly staff, easy (valet) parking. Rooms are nice, although they look a bit old fashioned or classical (Baroque Style), they are quite new. A lot of rooms have great view on the Lake. Airco okay, but you can also open the windows. The bathroom (all pink... More

It took my breath away looking outside the many sliding glass doors from our Presidential suite to Lake Lugano. What a wonderful setting. The views are amazing. The Presidential suit sits on top of the restaurant with plenty of lounge chairs to enjoy the view. I have to admit that while the place is unbeatable its not really a 5... More
