We picked this hotel for our stay during a conference. Despite not being in a city centre, the hotel has very good location with an excellent view over the lake, mountains and over the city. There is a number of decent restaurants (but not a lot) within walking distance, the nearest one called "ABC" on via Tesserete does very good... More

An overnight stay due to a cancelled flight. The reception service was excellent - the young lady could not have been more helpful. My room was lovely. I only wish I could have stayed longer, as I walked around the hotel NAND all areas looked really very very good.

Was in Lugano for a conference. Booked a superior room and was upgraded to a two bedroom apartment with views over the lake, a large balcony to take in the morning sun, and balconies off each bedroom. Although not ornate, it was clean, lovely, marble bathrooms, all done with care. Only down side was no air conditioning in the bedroom,... More

We stayed in this hotel for a long weekend in May. Although we booked a standard double room, we got a whole apartment, with 2 bedrooms, kitchen, living room and a private balcony with an amazing view of the city, mountains and the lake - which was of course great! The breakfast buffet is also very good, with a wide... More

Excellent hotel, beautiful rooms with comfortable beds and outstanding service. Breakfast is sensational. The view is also amazing. It's on the pricey side, but worth it. Try to get a room with a view if you can.

We've been there in March. Our suite was big, clean, facing north on the swimming pool, with a big balcony. The view, while not on the lake was nice. We were surprised to have a kitchen in the suite (I don't like that so much, I don't feel being in a hotel). We thought we would at least be able... More

I went with a close friend to celebrate her 30th and relax. The suite was 100 times better than the over priced dungeon I paid for in Nice (South of France - review coming) 8 months prior.
