My wife and I stayed at the Villa Principe Leopoldo for two nights as part of an extended holiday in Switzerland. This is a review for that hotel; some of the reviews on Tripadvisor listed here are for the Park Hotel Principe. These are separate hotels albeit under the same management. Some of the confusion may be caused by Trivago... More

Do not go to the residence : no view, needs a complete renovation -. We had a suite at the Villa, main building. Unfortunately it is difficult to have a serious lake view, because of the high trees. The room was renovated. The Villa is oldfashioned, but chic, very good service. The gastronomic restaurant is a highlight with amazing lake... More

We stayed only one night in the villa and were stunned upon arrival by the beauty of the villa and the view. We had a room in the villa but without view on the lake. Room was very spacious, clean and bright but very classic without any charm or personalization. For the price and for a 5* hotel we expected... More

Breakfest is also a highlight with amazing cheeses and breads. It's not so close to the city as is llocares on top of the hill but the view to... More

Stayed at this hotel after reading many of the reviews and I thought that I have carefully found my lovely hotel, the room in the villa is amazing, spacious, lovely. Now the horror story begins, a common theme there are two areas of the hotel that have serious problem, the housekeeping totally erratic, one day they miss putting towels, laundry... More

One night pass through hotels rarely get a 'holiday' rating. The hotel,though clean and well preserved feels dated and in need of a thorough renovation. The pool area feels tired, a simple investment in new tiles, some landscaping, cabanas could make a huge difference. The rooms all have lovely views of lugano, the higher floors better views but closer to... More

There are two separate buildings in this hotel: the villa and the residence. From the villa you have a magnificent view on the lake and the city, which is missing from the residence. Overall my stay was fine for a business trip. The room was large and staff very courteous. Some improvements on the overall infrastructure would be beneficial (eg... More

We had a lovely, spacious, comfortable room. The grounds are beautiful and sitting outside was delightful. We had dinner at their restaurant Restaurant Principe Leopoldo (see seperate review) and it was very special. The service was good and when I requested a topper be put on the mattress the front desk clerk sought us out at the restaurant to tell... More

My husband and I and our daughter and son in-law stayed at the Villa Principe Leopoldo for two nights recently after riding the Bernina Express Train from Chur, Switzerland. I thought it was beautiful. The grounds were gorgeous with gardens and fountains. The exterior walls had Jasmine trained on them which smelled wonderful. Everywhere you looked was beauty. From the...
