Excellent hotel near the lake. The room was absolutely inline with the grand chique in Lugano. The staff is helpfull and the service flawless. The room was better than standard. The parking space is a bit narrow. Breakfast was good.

The hotel is located in a town called Paradiso which is about 15-20 minutes walk or 5-10 minute bus ride from Lugano. It is about 5 minute walk to the funicular station for Monte San Salvatore. The lobby was beautiful. The room was spacious and clear. It has a balcony which offers a partial view of the lake. There is... More

We were initially a little disappointed when arriving at the hotel to find it was on a busy main road. That meant we could hear road noise whenever we sat outside by the pool or on the balcony. The rooms are also a little dated and in need of renovation. So you should be aware that this won't be a... More

The décor is very Pink! Initially it struck me as a bit too much; however, it seemed to grow on me. Definitely not modern! However, clean and well maintained. The comfortable mattress was welcome pleasure. All staff we had contact with were extremely friendly, polite, and accommodating. There was an issue w/our room safe - it was quickly fixed &... More

This is a great hotel. It was very clean and beds were very comfortable. It has a nice outdoor pool which is wonderful for an afternoon swim and nap. The staff was fantastic and really wanted to please us from the moment we walked in the door of the hotel. The breakfast buffet was wonderful and I would highly recommend... More

Positive: - The hotel was very clean and classy, bathroom was big and comfy, nice decoration, lots of light in daytime. Once you've closed the curtains, no lights will disturb your sleep even if the sun is up, as they are big thick curtains which is very pleasant when you like snuggling in bed in the morning. Big space! I... More

I am not sure if it is all De La Paix hotels as they appear to be owned by different operators. Certainly the Lugano De La Paix lacks privacy where hotel staff enter rooms without knocking. We had a male staff member catch my wife naked. On complaining the hotel couls only offer excuses for the staff member. Forget about... More

Dear Mr. Norm, thank you for your review. The morning of your departure one of our porter knocked at your door. He did not receive an answer so, since there wasn’t the DO NOT DISTURB SIGN and after asking another time “permission” and again, no answer, he went into the room to start the regular cleaning. You came to the... More
