My husband & I stayed at this wonderful hotel for four nights. The view from our room of lake Lugano was breathtaking. We would definitely return to this great hotel. The staff was professional, friendly and very knowledgable. Close to museums,shopping & convention center.

Everything you could possibly want in a breakfast (only missed fresh berries). Bio muffins, soy milk, rice milk, beautiful apple cake and berry cake and various other selections.

Food is lovely here, view etc. It is for a special occasion and a bit "stuffy" but nice once in awhile. Although rated the same by me as Principe, Principe much better.

Great selection of local Ticino dishes with locally sourced ingredients as well as international, creative dishes. Wine list up to the mark with some excellent Ticino wines. Waiters were great, the maître d'hôtel remembered our names and table preferences as well as the wine we preferred. That was an excellent surprise!

If you want to belong... More

No character in the kitchen with a mess in the service Can hardly understand how a well known five star hotel has such a mediocre restaurant! Slow and disorganised service, tastless food! The restaurant needed three hours to serve a diner for 6 and none of us enjoyed the food! Pity for the time and money. What I would recommend... More
