The Splendide Royal in Lugano was really a wonderful find. My husband and I, years ago, passing by Lugano, saw this hotel but did not stay in it at the time. Last february, visiting Lugano again, we decided to stay at the Splendide for a couple of days. It was a wise decision. The hotel has two wings side by side with the same front reception, an old and a new one. Obviously, the wise thing is to stay in the old wing, which seemed like an old european "palazzio". Everything was perfect, the doorman, the reception, the concierge, etc. Our room was perfectly appointed, very clean, with all furniture and linen like new. The service in general was perfect. They have a beautiful place where you can have drinks, tea, etc. all day. The breakfast buffet is superb. The restaurant, where we had dinner twice, was also quite nice, with a good menu and fantastic attention. We travel a lot nowadays and always stay at good hotels. But the Splendide Royal is something "different". We strongly reccomend it. Prices are very reasonable as Lugano even being a swiss city is not expensive as Zurich or Lucerne.
