My partner and I spent a (too) short 3-day stay at the Principe Leopoldo in November. I work in the hotel industry and consider myself an exigent guest when I travel - which is alot! I was not disappointed in the slightest way. This is a beautiful building in a quiet area of Lugano, away from the noise of downtown, but just a 5 minute drive away. From the moment we arrived (the porter was there on the doorstep), we felt like VIP guests. The lovely Sonia (I think) at reception, gave us the necessary info on the way down to the room - which incidentally was the largest double room I have seen at any hotel, to the tasty breakfast - the muesli with forest fruit on it was just like my childhood memories! - to room service (delicious and super fast) and the cosy bar upstairs with the very talented pianist, everything was perfect. All the staff greet you with a genuine and smiling "hello" and make you feel at home. All in all, a memorable stay in a town I have visited several times and love and hope to return to, staying at the Principe Leopoldo!
Thank you again
