We had a great stay at this little hotel on the outskirts of Lugano. Right across from a nice lido in a quiet area. Walking distance to the busier part of of Lugano. The staff was top-notch. Nice restaurant with excellent staff. The gym needs to be air conditioned or have some air flowing through it. Nice rooms. Clean and... More

A beautiful 5 star hotel located on lake Lugano in Switzerland. The hotel has luxurious rooms ours had a stunning view of the lake, the lounge and dining room are spectacular with their chandeliers and opulent furnishings . The staff were both courteous and friendly. The whole experience will leave you wanting to return again.

If you like your Italy squeaky clean, ultra safe and understatedly wealthy go to Lugano. Italy re mastered by Switzerland has certainly not the charm of true Italy but as some go to Hong Kong before venturing to China, you may wish to visit Lugano before heading South. Lugano is a charming town benefiting from a uniquely beautiful panorama between... 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

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!
