We came to Lugano on Easter Week to visit an old family friend who retired there, and had written to her asking for her a lodging recommendation. She went down to the Hotel Walter to personally inspect it first, and wrote to us that it was "splendid", a word I wouldn't hesitate to use myself. Old fashioned without being over-elegant, comfy, and right on the lake with magnificent views, it was also better priced than other hotels we looked at. They served a fine breakfast. The Hotel is an easy (downhill!) walk from the Lugano train station, and though rather a climb to get back, it's certainly do-able even dragging a heavy case; use the little funicular train, which goes up the steepest part and drops you right at the station.
