Assuming, that all rooms in the main building have lake views I reserved there, but found out, that my room faced an ugly hedge. So I changed to "junior suite" with lake view which increased the price by 60%.
Rooms are decent, but have a lot of travertine furniture, obviously from the 80s, when this was considered chic.
The main building which one sees on the webpage does not have any hotel rooms, these are all build in a newer construction below the original building and accessible from there. The main building has the bar, restaurant and conference rooms, as far as I understand...
Another case of a hotelier not understanding the word "suite" as in several rooms. This suite is one room, and should not be called a suite.
This was the most expensive hotel I ever stayed at having cheap plastic faux wood floors.
Rooms A-M are better, because of higher elevation and better view.
A very remote location and you need your own car, because the hotel shuttle bus to Lugano runs too infrequent and also the last time at 6:30 PM, which would mean, that you cannot take dinner outside of the hotel.
Friends living in Lugano told me, that this is considered the best place in town. Depressing.
