The Leopoldo is in the style of a grand hotel. It is about 2 km above Lugano (they have a shuttle bus during the day). There is a main Villa with spectacular views over Lake Lugano. Drinks on the terrace are a must. Across the road is the Residence - referred to in the booking options as "the Annex". Here... More

Our junior suite in the main building could not be faulted. We had a large separate toilet with bidet, a bathroom with a large walk in shower, comfortable bed and a balcony with a view of the lake. Drinks on the terrasse was straight from a James Bond movie, a glamorous crowd, excellent cocktails and stunning views of the lake... More

The hotel is in a lovely setting. It is a quiet area away from the hustle and bustle of the city with spectacular views from the main villa. We stayed in the residence which we liked with a beautiful quiet garden setting overlooking a good-sized pool. The room was very spacious with a seating and desk area on a lower... More

We stayed in the main villa, after reading mixed reviews about the residence. Pulling up to the hotel and walking thought the lobby to the lovely grounds and breathtaking views of the lake is impressive. The hallways are sort of odd....long and dark with an strange combination of pink stucco and green marble, incongruous with the lovely exterior of this... More

While touring Switzerland, we had the chance to stay at the Villa Principe Leopoldo. We booked a room in the main villa (not the residence), with a view facing the lake. That view is precisely one of the strongest point of the Villa. It is truly breathtaking. During our stay we had nothing to complain about. The staff is extremely... More

One night stop at the Villa Leopoldo where I booked a room in the secondary house. First of all I'll start with the good things: - Great and professionnal staff. - The gourmet restaurant is very good... and the service was excellent. - Spacious room Now the bad stuff: - Might be the ugliest bathroom I've seen in a hotel...

A lovely hotel in a great spot. They kindly upgraded us without us requesting it from a basic room in the Residence to one in the main hotel with a lovely view over the lake, which made our stay all the more enjoyable. Their restaurant is pricey but well worth the money.

We greatly enjoyed this hotel. It's up on a hill, with lovely views overlooking the lake and bay, which one can enjoy from the restaurant and bar -- where guests gather each evening. The rooms were nicely appointed, nice size, very nice amenities and touches. The service was very friendly. The concierges were very helpful. The only downside is that... More

The reception is excellent, the hospitality is out of this world, the dinner is worth three stars on the Michelin guide scale the site is beautiful, the rooms are extremely well designed and equipped with all the modern necessities. We had a perfect four nights stay, the car safely parked in the shade and the service really very, very good.

I was in Lugano for work, the Residence was in fact a delightful 1 bedroom apartment. Views of hills and trees, very lush and quiet. Bathroom has been renovated and nicely appointed. Large sitting area and desk to work on. We took the short walk to the main hotel for drinks and dinner, oh the view is spectacular. The food... More
