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

Splendide Royal was our home for 3 days during our stay in Lugano. Breakfast was amazing, staff was really professional commanding us where to go and what to visit. The room was really nice and the lake view breathtaking.

We stayed here for 2 nights. We booked about 30 mins before we arrived but everything was ready for our arrival. The staff were wonderful from the get go. We were addressed by our names by all the staff throughout our stay and the second morning the maitre'd even remembered our breakfast drinks order. We had our dinner in the... More

Returned to magical Lugano after 30 years. Once again stayed at this lovely hotel. Excellent service, nice location, beautiful classic rooms that have all the modern amenities. Would have been nice if the hotel had a pool, a "real, modern" gym (the room set aside for that purpose is a feeble attempt, at best). The large breakfast buffet room (the... More

On the positive side the room (206) was very large and included a very large terrace/balcony with great view to the lake and mountains – the terrace vas large enough to accommodate a table with 4 chairs and 2 sun-chairs. On the negative side the... More

Could we ask for more. Large clean rooms, spacious bathroom with tubs and shower. People who checked in are definitely would not care for the price. Better than that one we checked in at venice. Breakfast was served at the veranda. Would love to come back!

We spent two nights here and were delighted with the property, location and service. We had a large clean 6th floor room facing the lake. When we first arrived, we went to the terrace bar while our bags were being delivered; delightful service with a (free) assortment of canapes to accompany our drinks. Very good A/C in our room, not... More

We had a lake facing room at Hotel Splendide Royal which provided nice lake views. The room was beautiful, the hotel was air conditioned. The bathroom had a wonderful shower, nice bath products. There was no coffee maker in the room, however, we did have a small refrigerator, safe, and complimentary water. There was only 1 English speaking TV channel... More

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your nice comments. We are glad you have liked the room’s decor and have enjoyed the comfortable shower. It surprises us that there was only one English speaking channel on the TV, as normally there are several British, American and International TV channels in English. We have asked our technicians to verify our... More
