Hotel claims to have 5stars... the only 5 star "item" of the hotel is the view on Lugano and Lugano lake. Rooms' facilities are old, carpet both in corridors and a room are stinky. Our bathroom was dirty. Breakfast is ok, but nothing special - typical international breakfast, which you can find in 3 star hotels. Nice private pub on... More

We stayed in this hotel during Swiss Harley Days event. The hotel is old but comfy, I would not complain about the oldness since the city was so wonderfully beautiful. The breakfast was very satisfying, also make sure you stop by the spa for some pampering time. The beds were ok but if you are a pillow freak as I... More

My wife and I stayed here for four nights. The hotel is located in Paradiso, approximately a mile from city center. It is a very nice lakeside walk to the town. The Paradiso Lugano train station is 400 m uphill from the hotel. In addition, the bus stops to and from the city center are very close by... And yes,... More

Located at Paradiso the GHE is a lovely mash of old world meets modern accommodation. I have to admit upfront that we were upgraded to a Lake View Deluxe Room (without asking), we only booked a partial lake view room (these are back off the lake edge). So we are likely to smile upon the GHE and overlook any faults.... More

The view to the Lake Lugano and the city as well as location of this hotel is excellent. The choice for the breakfast is splendid. The terrace with the bar unbeatable. In summer time you can even swim from there in the lake. Alternatively you can use the indoor swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna or hammam. You have to either go... More

Whole hotel needs updating . Great views of Lake Lugano and surrounding hills even from non-premier rooms. Have to go across street or down and up underground tunnel to get to restaurant, which is lakeside but food just fair. About 20 min walk from city center, but it is a lovely stroll, or u can take bus, taxi, or water... More

The view from the lake side rooms is unbeatable. They all have balconies and we enjoyed looking over the lake with a glass of wine in the evenings. Other than that, it is nothing special. Staff was excellent but the hotel is dated. It seems a bit dark and drab in some places. There is a large bar in the... More

The hotel is good, rooms are large, clean and nice. Assistance is very good too. The only issue is that the style of the hotel is a bit fancy. The breakfast room has magnificent views and the breakfast itself is very good too.

We just spent two nights at the Grand Hotel Eden, the hotel has a nice 5 star view of the lake... However, I'm sorry to say that the 5 star experience ends there. The spa and pool are acceptable, but the rest of the hotel is very dated and the entire ground floor has a strong chlorine smell emanating from... More

We stayed at this hotel with a lake view room which was spectacular. The only problem we faced was the air conditioning did not work well we kept the door to our balcony open at night. the breakfast was excellent and there is a walking patch right in front of the hotel along the lake. It is a bit far... More
