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

I stay here regularly on business. The standard rooms are fine with partial lake views, when I get the occasional upgrade to a full Lake View room over the road in the annexe it's nicer :-). The decor is quite oriental with big ornate funrniture - it reminds me of Tokyo hotels I stayed in, and I can take it... More

We spent two nights in this hotel with a room overlooking the lake. The room had everything you would need although a little bit out dated. The beds could have been more comfortable..perhaps some new mattresses. The breakfast buffet was pretty good after a bit of a walk to the underground tunnel that brought you to the dining area. we...

I could handle the dated look, though it's comical in some ways...mirrors, red laminate, animal prints. Someone had a poor sense of design and a chequebook! The thing I cannot tolerate is indifference to my requests. I literally spoke to 5 different people throughout my 11-night stay to ask them to please fix the shower door that was leaking large...

Eden Hotel Lugano - hotel looks dated from the outside but is well appointed inside.  Rooms are well furnished,  however unfortunately a double bed is actually two beds pushed together.  Rooms contain all the necessary items, with the exception of coffee and tea making facilities, which is disappointing for a hotel of this class.  Also,  bathroom had a slight sewerage...
