4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2014

The hotel's best feature is its prime location directly across from the lake in this popular resort town, with a spectacular and unobstructed panoramic view. The building itself has an interesting history, which is why the rooms are over-sized by European standards. The hotel has been renovated and modernized. My room had free wi-fi and wired ethernet Internet access. The beds are firm but very comfortable. There is a large lap pool with a nice deck but it doesn't get direct sun until after mid-day because it sits behind the building. Breakfast buffet was included. Service at the front desk and in the dining room was very friendly and courteous. The primary drawbacks are that the hotel has no gym and only one elevator.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front of the hotel that faces the lake. The additional cost is well-justified...

Spectacular view of the lugano lake and recently renovated rooms are perfect for a tourist or business trip. Just 30 mins walking distance from the downtown, the comute let you enjoy the beauty of the place. At the hotel, the parking is one of their weaks as every place in lugano nevertheless the venue has a very modersn parking system at the parking lot to benefit the limited space. Good service and decent food, the hotel also sponsors cultural events such as concerts during the summer.

Super hotel (we had the prefect room overlooking the lake). The staff (as nearly always at BW) were friendly and helpful. We arrived late with luggage and a car - dumped the former - asked about the restaurant - after we parked in their car park, we were whisked into the dining room just in time for last orders - our baggage was taken to our room. A special mention is deserved for the dining room staff - top class professionals.

We stayed for one night only at this lovely hotel. During our tour of Switzerland for our honeymoon in June 2013 we took the scenic train from Lucerne to Lugano. Very pretty place. Fantastic hotel. The staff were so welcoming. We took our bag to our room and found it to be outstanding with a beautiful lake view and a lovely balcony. As we were only there for one night we went our for a stroll, then back to the hotel for a shower and change for dinner. We were greeted by a chilled bottle of bubbly, nuts, fruit, chocolates - truly outstanding. The staff had made one night's stay seem like we were there for the week! They really pulled out all the stops. The room was comfortable. Breakfast very good and all in all we had a lovely experience. Would go again.

Room Tip: A lake view is a must

We stayed in this hotel for ten days in September 2013 as part of a package holiday with a well-known British lakes and mountains specialist.
I believe this is one of the best hotels I have stayed in over many years of holidaying and working in Europe.
The view from the hotel is exceptional with Lake Lugano and the surrounding mountains forming a beautiful backdrop. The hotel is well-placed for the ships which cruise the lake and is a pleasant ten to fifteen minute walk ora short bus journey to the town centre. The cafes,bars and restaurants of the Paradiso district are also within easy reach. We found the accommodation to be excellent with the deluxe room being very quiet despite being on a busy road. The room had a superb TV system which enabled us to access British channels as well as all the local Swiss, Austrian,French, German and Italian broadcasts.
The food in the restaurant was invariably of high quality with some particularly impressive pasta dishes and soups as part of a four course dinner menu. Breakfast was excellent too but the buffet could have been stocked up more frequently. The staff have an impressive range of languages too and were at all times friendly and helpful. Over the ten days no dish was repeated-quite an impressive feat.
We would not hesitate to return to this hotel in the future.

We were in Lugano at the begınnıng of August for three days. The hoel was average. Its location was very good. Rooms were very big and clean. our room 207 has a brilliant lake view. Howvere the staff was not friendly. The receptionist lasy welcomed us in a very rude way. and also the waiters were saying "offff" all the time. The breakfast was average also. The service was very slow. And the eggs were cold and cracked every morning.

Staying at this hotel with a great view of the lake added to the quality of my holiday in Lugano. I had requested for a room with a lake view and the Manager on duty went out of his way to ensure this. The room and bathroom were large, modern and elegantly furnished with free wifi. The continental breakfast had quite a variety of dishes and was well served in a lovely room looking out onto the lake. The boat station is conveniently located across the road from where one can get the various cruises and the city centre is a 15 - 20 minute walk along the lakeside. The railway station is about 7 minutes by cab. While it cost me 15 Swiss francs from the station to the hotel, the cab the hotel arranged for the return trip asked for double the amount . The driver argued that he had included waiting charges though I went out immediately on being informed that my transport had come. So make sure this does not happen to you! It would be ideal if the hotel organised a complimentary transport to and from the station.

Room Tip: I definitely recommend a room with a lake view so do request for it at the time of making your booki...
