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.

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

Had an amazing time here. VERY high quality hotel with decent customer service. Food was way beyond expectations. It was fresh and of high quality. My room was modest but well appointed as a suite. I felt right at home and had an amazing walk right outside of the hotel to city central Lugano. The people were extremely friendly and... More
