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

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...

A beautiful Hotel with Stunning views, our room was amazing, we had a junior suite with garden view, a large beautifully decorated room with bags of space for my partner and I to relax into. The staff were exceptional and nothing was too much trouble. There's an excellent pool area with towels tastefully laid on the sunbeds awaiting guests to... More

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
