A friend of mine who travels frequently suggested this hotel and it did not disappoint! Service was great, everyone was friendly and professional.

The exterior of the residences badly requires a facelift. It's got a very old and dreary facade. Views is nice from the main hotel and service is good at the main... More

Wow. What a place! Loved everything about it. Newly renovated rooms, restaurant, views, friendly staff. I am here on business, and this was my second choice as the other hotel I booked was closed. Mosdef be back here.

We know Lugano well and have visited many times over the years but it was our first stay here. Relegated to 'The other place' because we had our family dog with us I was surprised by the spaciousness of our room. Split level, light and airy it had every convenience on tap for an enjoyable stay. I liked the way... More

We picked this hotel for an overnight stay/halt on our way to Milan from Munich. It was winter but We were lucky enough to get to the hotel before dark. Lake's from the Villa is Amazing and something that should not be missed. Rooms were huge, Luxurious but the property is surely due for minor renovation. The light dinner we... More

The hotel upon arrival is lovely! Glamorous, traditional architecture and modern chic furnishings, the peak of the mountains align neatly around the perimeter viewpoint. The hotel boasts elegance! The restaurant is wonderful and the staff are very attentive, professional, courteous and welcoming! I recommend hiring a car if you travel here for more than 4 days. The gym is fab... More

I was there last October. The room was in the old part, not the main building the one with the triumph entry. 2 very nice days. Breakfast is excellent, a lot of specialties for foodies (juices, eggs, confitures, breads, salmon, ... a large variety). Room is very large, a junior suite, big and with all needed equipments.

Very expensive. Poor relation price/quality. Very old hotel. Very old dirty rooms and furniture. They offer wi fi but it never works. We stayed five days and I had to go to the lobby any time I wanted to use the wi fi. There was no coincierge (amazing!') and the attention of the only one person at the front desk... More

This is one of the most beautiful locations in Switzerland. The rooms are great and the views overlooking Lake Lugano are breathtaking. The staff is a bit snooty but other than that it was great. Dinner on the back terrace outside is memorable. The ride down to town is short and sweet but a harder walk. The basilica in town... More
