Better late than never. My story will begin with a valued, beautiful large V-shaped burgundy coloured, fur-like shawl I left behind in Hotel de la Paix on a Christmas Eve evening after dining in their charming Italian restaurant (red/white tablecloth, high-back wooden chairs, wrought-iron balustrades(?) and even curtains on pretty windows!) where the Maitre D and his young team (a...

Stayed for 4 nights. Lovely room with all the expected sundries. Free mini- bar was re- filled every day which was a surprise but very welcome as Switzerland is very expensive. Very good breakfast. All the staff where charming especially the front desk. Location of hotel is very good, not central but only 2 minute walk to lake and then... More

Been sleeping in room 210. On second floor. View on swimming pool and main busy street. Nice and comfortable bed. Free bar but not Much in it and not been refilled. No beer for example but only soft drinks. TV channels are many from German to Arabs to Italian. Breakfast is standard. Not extraordinary. Paid about 200 chf per night... More

It was very good as it just opened. The room was nice and spacious but the toilet was small. They had free drinks for customers. But when I called the reception for a water boiler they said to call the bar. So I called the bar and they said you had to go down to the bar to get it... More

My expectations of Swiss hotels was high and I can only compare the four my husband and I stayed in on our recent trip. In that sense this was the most disappointing. There is a slightly faded grandeur to the place - it must have been quite splendid at one time but the room was rather disappointing as it was... More

When one talks about high Swiss Hotel standards in terms of service and accommodation this does certainly not apply for the Hotel de La Paix in Lugano. That starts with the reception area. I arrived there with my 3 heavy luggage. Now don't think that anyone cares about it ! The bell-man in polishing the old world copper door handle... More

Recent four day visit to Lugano brought us to this recommend hotel. I would recommend to anyone looking for a nice hotel in the area. Full service with breakfast lunch and dinner options but to me the Staff was outstanding. From the front desk to the breakfast buffet to our Lake Como "friend" behind the bar, all were beyond helpful.... More

The De La Paix is an excellent hotel about a 15/20 minute stroll from the centre of Lugano and only minutes from the lakeside at Paradiso. Although much of the building is very old it has been sympathetically restored and decorated and has a quiet elegance. Our room was very big, with a separate seating area and a very large... More

Hotel is in a good location, very nice lobby, restaurant and swimming pool, the food in the restaurant is good, the only downside I found was the room itself, decoration a bit old fashion and tired plus you can hear the noise from the street a little bit, I was on the 5th floor and could hear the traffic. Rooms... More

This was the third hotel that my husband and I stayed at while touring with Globus. It is in Lugano Switzerland and it was quite nice. The room was lovely with a very large bathroom. The room was tastefully decorated and we found the bed very comfortable. It is in a good location - close to shops and restaurants. This... More
