I have stayed at Villa Principe Leopold for only one night. It is a very beautiful hotel, with impeccable decor and taste. I was very pleased and felt wonderful. The front desk attendee was very polite and quick with the checking in. Also, paid attention and gave us rooms one next to the other (not all hotels do this, except... More

I had a similar experience to Therooster. When I reserved our room per phone and they suggested a choice of three different rooms: a junior suite with lake view, a room with garden view and a room at the residence. They made it seem that there was no big difference between the villa and the residence. Therefore, we chose the... More

Everything was just superb from the personalized attention, polite staff that went out of their way to accommodate, to the decor and warmth of the place. Food at both restaurants was fantastic, especially the desserts!! I had the set of 6 assorted desserts twice in 5 days.

So we booked the hotel through booking.com which had a great deal during the off season (November). We figured, “Lets stay one night on the weekend to see this normally expensively priced property”. Not surprisingly we booked a room in the annex (Dependance) a building across the road, with no view. Anyways, the main disappointment came when they showed us... More

I organized a dinner at this restaurant for business purposes and we arranged a 5 course menu, each dish was better of the previous, a marvelous experience, thanks to the great skills of Chef Dario Ranza and his team. Service was also perfect, certainly a place to recommend. Thank you.

We were looking for a nice hotel with good sport facilities. As the Leopoldo advertised a nice fitness centre, tennis courts and a spa, we decided to go for it. The hotel is very nicely located on a hill above Lugano. We hit straight to the fitness centre, which is well equipped. But who organized it? There is no water,... More
