This was an amazing place to stay! We stayed in the Rustico and what an absolutely gorgeous view The hotel staff was quite attentive, very professional and certainly loved what they do. I especially enjoyed dining at the Il Grottino. Great food made and served by equally enthusiastic staff.

We stayed a few time in Cadro, for business and pleasure. It is just an old and overpriced hotel. Bathrooms are from the mid sixties and pretty basic. The showers are just old, some with plastic doors, others with curtains that stick to your body if you take a shower.. It needs renovation. Even the sauna, jacuzzi is old. The... More

This place is a little out of town so you need a car to travel around. The accomodation is comfortable and well equipped, though the bathrooms are old. What is really outstanding is the view of Lugano and the lake. A wonderful place for a sunset drink. But, like many things in Switzerland, it was expensive.

Stayed here two nights. As stated by many, the name tells it all... Very panoramic. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Meals here were very good. My room was a serious letdown. All tile floor, very spartan, very cold looking and uninviting. No thermostat, not sure how the temperature was supposed to be controlled. Got very hot overnight. Two tiny... More

This hotel is a little old, but the view of Lugano is amazing. By the pool you can see the Lugano Lake. The staff is friendly too. The price is a little high, but Lugano is a rich city, so you can't find options with this structure for lower prices.

The Hotel Cadro Panoramica Lugano is situated at the top of mountain. We stayed in the apartment which is of villa style (Rustico). It is quiet and comfortable. There is a big terrace at the entrance of our house which can overlook the tennis courts, a restaurant and beautiful mountain view. The downside is that it is far away from... More

We found Hotel Cadro Panoramica online as a last minute booking option the night before arriving in Lugano. The views from rooms and the restaurant facing down the mountain toward Lugano are fantastic. Even though there are homes and buildings leading all the way down, each of them seem to fit quite naturally into the landscape and nothing looks out... More

This place is expensive. Without proper furniture (the furniture is the room is what I have in my garden). Certainly not worth it. Not worth a 4 star rating. Average breakfast. Separated single mattresses on a double bed.

We stayed one night whilst visiting friends. On arrival what stands out is a huge window which has been broken and has been taped up all over. It looks like it has been that way for quite a long time. It looks really dangerous and does not give a good first impression of the property. The property is old and... More

What a wonderful experience! The view from my balcony was outstanding. The food from the restaurant was delicious and the presentation was beautiful. Best of all - the SERVICE! These folks really know what the word "service" means! Hats off to the management! Everything was wonderful!
