Royal service in hotel rightly named "Splendid Royal." Lugano is a piece of heaven, and the hotel service quality is like no other. We stayed in room 311 in the Victorian building of the hotel. The view was okay but the service quality and the care was overwhelming. The room was wonderful all around. The concierge were so helpful and... More

This hotel is fantastic. The location in Lugano is beautiful. The view of the lake is breathtaking and the rooms are top notch. From the decor to the service this hotel is one of the best hotels I have ever visited. They definitely know how to spoil you. We loved the staff- it was sad to leave them. I am... More

The staff was very helpful; special requests were handled efficiently and warmly. Although I might not choose this type hotel for personal travel, I found it to be a comfortable spot for my Lugano business visit. The room was... More

The Splendide Royal in Lugano was really a wonderful find. My husband and I, years ago, passing by Lugano, saw this hotel but did not stay in it at the time. Last february, visiting Lugano again, we decided to stay at the Splendide for a couple of days. It was a wise decision. The hotel has two wings side by... More

We were most impressed with the room itself beautiful high ceilings, traditional furniture, tons of marble and a gorgeous Venetian chandeliers. The front desk staff was very pleasant and knowledgeable, with the exception if one young lady who did not understand what we were asking her in English or Italian, which was very frustrating, as you would expect the staff...

This classic style hotel, on the shores of Lake Lugano, has friendly staff, good service and a beautiful ground floor layout, with high ceilings and large windows overlooking the lake. I stayed for 3 nights in the "new" part of the hotel (on the left as you enter the reception) which is not a very nice looking concrete addition to... More

I stayed here a couple of years ago, so this is a late review. However I must say it has fantastic concierge service, beautiful views from the lake and very close to great party places. The hotel has a nice feeling of ancient grandeur. Decoration is simple but elegant. Room service is fab. Definitely a must when in Lugano.

I spent only one night at the Splendide Royal for business and I really enjoyed my short stay there. First, the hotel is very well located, with a superb view over the lake.
