Great service - someone is always available to help when one needs it. The restaurant serves great food with attentive helpers, who I learned are mostly old-hands that have been there for years and know their place and things. Bus stops almost just outside to various places, if one needs, and a small shopping center across the street with a... More

As we were guests out of season, our experience of Lugano and the hotel generally was impacted by the weather as it rained for the 2 days we stayed there. Nevertheless, we enjoyed the experience and our room was quiet and comfortable with a really beautiful view of the lake. Although the decor is somewhat old fashioned and a little... More

From the moment you walk in until you walk out the staff make you feel that their world revolves around making you feel like royalty. The food is always excellent, well presented and served in style. The location is also another plus, a short distance from the city and parks but right on the lake with a wonderful view.

This nice and stylish hotel is a very good place to relax and enjoy the lake view. The atmosphere is from the last century but the service is definitely up to date. Excellent restaurant, good breakfast. Lugano Lido is a good place to stay.

I come here since 2007 and a review is long overdue. I visit for work and feel really blessed when I am here. I do agree with some of the reviewers that the decor of the rooms is tired and a tat old fashioned, but the hotel, privately owned, is embarking on a redecoration scheme and soon, we are told,...

The hotel location is very nice at the lakeshore. The staff were very nice and cooperative. The room was clean but the furniture is very old and the carpet is in very bad condition and smelling. You need around 10-15 minutes walking to reach the downtown area. The hotel has private parkings for 16 CHF per day. The price was... More

We had a most enjoyable stay at this wonderful hotel, one of the few in Lugano which are directly situated on the lakeshore. Staff very friendly throughout the hotel, wonderful view and comfortable south-facing room (a must). Excellent food except for the bred at breakfast. Good value. Particularly appreciated the parking right opposite the hotel. Would definitely return, especially in... More

This hotel is situated at the Mont Bre end of Lugano, right on the lake side. The view from the balcony was breathtaking, changing almost on an hourly basis depending on the weather. It is a bit of a walk into town, but worth it to be right by the lake and very close to the Mont Bre cable car... More

I should have paid attention to the other reviews talking about bad service - the service in general is slow and very un-Swiss; my main issue is they do not allow any food or drinks (except water) to be consumed by the pool unless you bought it from the hotel (for insane prices). Even if you buy a coffee or... More
