The staff make the difference. Good caring friendly service. We had a little problem on our arrival with our room, they dealt with the matter seriously and very efficiently. Bathrooms well appointed, shower pressure and temperature adjustment too. Breakfast is more than adequate - you can order expresso, cappuccino. The swimming pool is an additional bonus, towels are supplied, it... More

Clean, great location. Walking distance to main street and restaurants. We took a boat ride at night and to meet the boat it was a few minute walk to the shore line. We happen to have a corner room that appeared to be a bit more spacious than the regular rooms. We think it may have been a suite. The... More

My favorite hotel during our Switzerland Globus tour. Great location as it was within walking distance of the lake, shopping and restaurants. We ended up with a mini suite on the corner of the hotel. Beautiful, clean, comfortable room with a large bathroom. Staff was extremely helpful. Very good breakfast in a beautiful dining room. The pool looked great, but... More

We stayed at this hotel as part of our Globus tour. The hotel was centrally located. Rooms were very spacious and clean. Nice spacious bathroom. WiFi was free, but of variable speed. A wide variety for the buffet breakfast. Only negative was the 12 Swiss Francs I paid for ONE scotch and ice. Yes, drinks are expensive. So yes, a... More

Pleasant and nicely appointed hotel, 5 minutes from station by taxi. 30 minutes pleasant and flat walk to palais de congres. Rooms were pleasant enough, wifi, free minibar. Note that power is using the Swiss standard socket so you may need to find an adapter. The continental thin two prong plugs work but not the thicker ones! Food was good,... More

We had a family holiday recently in this hotel. Although reviews seemed a bit mixed we were very pleased with the service. We had booked a twin bed (by oversight) through Trivago, with a room accomodating 3 people (2 adults + child). At the reception they pointed out our booking was for twin beds but when we said we wanted... More

We had a good sized room with a king bed that was firm but not too hard. The wifi in the hotel was a bit erratic. We had a view of the lake through some tall buildings. When you look out at night the view from the room is fantastic with lights all the way up the side of a... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. I can't rave enough about it, the check in was easy and both girls at the reception were kind and courteous. However, I do have to brag about our bar tender, Tomaso. He was full of useful information about what to do around town and even gave us tips about visiting Milan... More

We stayed 4 nights at the Hotel de la Paix for a large conference which saw delegates accommodated in a number of different hotels in Lugano. Our first impressions were not fantastic, as several of us arrived by bus at the same time, and with only one person at the reception desk the check in process took a very long... More

Excellent hotel, spacious rooms, large and well equipped bathroom, we also got balcony with city/lake view. Good breakfast with excellent coffee, plenty of choices both warm and cold. Free parking, free wifi. Nice and competent staff. Not much to complain, it is a bit far the centre and WiFi authorisation system is very annoying, on a mobile it will ask... More
