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

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 Swiss Diamond Hotel in Morcote (About 9 Kilometers from Lugano) is a real good hotel, even it is situated isolated from any Shopping or "Action" area. 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
