This Hotel is soo charming and beautifully decorated in heritage theme, gorgeous furniture in lounge and bar areas all overlooking Lake - situated just far enough out of Manu shopping area to be quieter but only a relaxing lakefront walk into main shopping/ eating areas. The head barman from Como region exception with wines etc. Do a cruise around Lake... More

Be prepared to be spoiled. The hotel has two parts, older and new. While looking at the property from the outside you might opt for the old, rooms on the new side are beautiful and in traditional decor. The view of the lake is outstanding especially before sunrise and after sunset when the surface is like a mirror showing great... More

Great service throughout. Room was clean and good. Would recommend going for the lake-view rooms. The others are facing a small courtyard så low level ones could be felt a bit dark. Very happy with our stay and would recommend this hotel.

We're on a Taulk tour of Switzerland and staying 2 nights at the Splendid Hotel on Lake Lugano. It's at an excellent location right on the lake. There is a walking promenade right in front of the hotel that will get you into town in 10 minutes. The rooms are very nice and the service is excellent. Our room overlooks... More

Hotel Spendide Royal is beautiful, with elegant decor and elegant rooms. Even the staff who work in this hotel are elegant, which is testament to the standard. However, it was all a bit too stiff and boring for me. Until I retire I want more atmosphere and a buzz or vibe. An energy to kick off dinner or drinks, which... More

Great hotel, with a great location, in a great city. We ended up capping our two weeks of travel through Italy with 2 nights in Lugano, and our stay at the Hotel Splendide Royal was a perfect end to a spectacular trip. Our room was beautiful and we had a view that we could not stop gazing at in the... More

The price is high but trust me that when you enter the hotel you will understand why. Great dining room, rooms are nice with a lake view, but nevertheless they could be renovated. I like this place and I suggest to go and see. The lake is 20sec from the hotel and downtown is a 7min walk!

We stayed there for 2 nights in May (would have loved to stay longer) and had a very nice stay. I will start with the only negative point about the hotel which is the location near the street. This is not a quiet street and those who wish to open the window during the night might be bothered with the... More

My husband I and I went for our honeymoon. They staff were amazing and even took care of some naughty requirements. Our pet dog, Rocky, was well taken care of too. The hotel manager is incredible and also so sensitive to our situation. My hubby is a dwarf and this has proven to be an issue in other hotels but... More
