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...

The hotel is one of the most beautiful of Lugano. The garden is so nice with a great view. The problem are the prices, rooms in my opinion does not have that value and if you go to drink a glass of prosecco (not the best one at all) is about chf16. I took Ruinard bottle and you can image... More

Here for a friend's wedding and everything was top class from start to finish. Excellent atmosphere, not too formal, but everything just right. The standard of service would be difficult to beat anywhere. The quality and presentation of the meal was top class

This place is surrounded by everything beautiful. Greenery, beautiful weather, water, flowers, and really good staff. We enjoyed our stay here very much. Make sure you go for the jogging routes provided by the hotel, it's very enjoyable and liberating to pass by different houses, vineyards, local restaurants; etc. Restaurant and breakfast were good, so was the entrance at the...

His is one of my favorite hotels however it has lost some of its shine and needs some serious refurbishment, the hotel has become very "dusty". The staff is lovely and very accommodating. Location and vibes are unique and I will continue to visit. Junior suites are spacious and super quiet, a great night of sleep is guaranteed. I would... More

The rooms at the residence side of the hotel is comparable to a motel. Very little amendities with the Room. The toilet is as bare as a motel room. 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
