“nice hotel with a million dollars view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2010

Hotel Campione is about 15 minutes from Lugano center. Its located in a territory of Switzerland and Italy. So people who live in this little town Campione have two addresses one for Switzerland and one for Italy. This is a geographic anomaly (:
We stayed in the hotel in 2006 and now again in 2010. We have been booking the same room which is 406 its a very nice room with large living room and bedroom, large bathroom and two balconies with a significant view that you don’t get from anywhere else. However not all the rooms are so nice some of them are outdated and don’t have view.
Stuff is outstanding and so friendly, housekeeping is so quite but doing the most perfect job I have seen. When we came back from the dinner it was before Easter we found a nice pleasant surprise basket with the Easter colored eggs and chocolate bunnies! It was really very thoughtful! Hotel itself is not a luxury hotel since it’s old and has very limited amenities. It has a very small lobby area, outside pool and restaurant. No wellness spa or massage room or gym. But they allow dogs and even have a treats for them (: Menu is limited but made well with a fresh ingredients.
Lugano is a beautiful hidden gem in Switzerland and we love coming here a lot. When in Lugano make sure drive to Morcote its 10 minutes from Campione. A beautiful place out of this world, so quite with breath taking view on the lake. Drive to check out Bellinzona's castles and stop to have a lunch in Osteria Grotto Malakoff for the best homemade food. In Lugano check out restaurant in hotel Colibri it has stunning view to the lake and Lugano and its so high in a mountains that helicopters are flying way below you.
If you like shopping check out Foxtown it as outlets of Gucci, Etro, Missone, Valentino, Dior and much more.

We stayed one night from our long trip back from Italy. The receptionist was very helpful and friendly. Diner and breakfast were tasty. There is a nice swimming pool with a splendid view on the lake of Lugano. Swissminiatur in Melide just nearby. Hotel Campione is absolutely recommendable!

Great location and great rooms. We had six people in our party and wanted to visit Lugano. This hotel is a little ways from downtown Lugano but you can take a bus right to town only 20 min. Bus stops right outside hotel. Across the lake but not far. Had room to park our car also. Rooms were large with very large bathrooms and air-conditioning. Very clean. Great ammenities. Has terrace and pool that over looks the Lake. Beautiful Pool and eating area. Very clean. Had breakfast each morning overlooking Lake Lugano and the town, amazing. Very relaxing. The small town where hotel Campione is located is great. Breakfast was very good, lots of variety. We ate dinner at the hotel one night it was excellent. Would definitely recommend this hotel!
