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

The building of the hotel can easily be seen from distance because of the color (pink) . I love the decoration , the garden and flowers. I like the view of the lake from the room balcony . The breakfast was also good and I like the fruits which were well selected in good quality.

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
