For a very relaxing and exquisite stay in Lugano, there is no other place to go. The Hotel certainly lives up to the Leading Hotel of the World expectations, the staff is attentive but unobtrusive,and the view is to die for. The porter even went into the trouble to find out when my last visit was to the Hotel, even... More

My partner and I are recent guests of this hotel, and we were absolutely blown away by the level of service in this hotel. I have been lucky enough in my life to stay at some wonderful places in many countries, but the attention to detail and foresight of our needs exhibited by the staff (including but not limited to...

Beautiful hotel with one of the best service we have ever received - from all members of the staff! We stayed in the Deluxe Palace room with a view of lake Ceresio. Free WiFi and breakfast was plentiful. They even left colour pencils and a toy for my 5 year old on his bed. Such a lovely touch. Booked through... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights while on a tour. Location is everything! It was a short walk into the town center along a beautiful path by the lake. Several restaurants were nearby including a very good place to get a reasonable pizza (walk out hotel and turn right for about a block). The newer part of the... More

We enjoy 4 wonderful days at this hotel. The location in front of the lake is great. The personnel is spectacular, they take care of every detail. The rooms are very good. The hotel is located 5 minutes walk from the action in Lugano but its worth the distance.

A fine classic grand that we have enjoyed for 3 days. Our room is of nice size and the bath is very nice. Our view from our high balcony is a beautiful view of the lake. The service has been quite attentive and very helpful. Breakfast is very good also. We ate dinner on the terrace and enjoyed the meals.... More

We 1 night a weekend at this hotel for a weekend break. The hotel is not located in "downtown" Lugano, yet about 10min walk south of the lake shore. The walk into the city center is however rather pleasant so, it's not really an issue. The hotel is located on the lake front, yet does not have direct lake access,... More

Last summer, we had a fantastic stay at the Grand Hotel Tremezzo. This year, we wanted to experience something similar to Como, so thought we would try Lugano. The town itself is nice, ritzy, very upscale, very expensive. But we found the hotel to be disappointing. There are no amenities on site - no gym, no pool, no lakeside presence... More
