“Nice but quirky”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2007

This is a well-sited hotel located on the shores of the lake. In summer, it should be possible to swim, as a diving platform on the lake suggests.

The lakeview from the hotel rooms with that view is quite stunning. There is also a terrace attached to the restaurant and it's very pleasant when the weather is agreeable.

The rooms are well proportioned.

The quirks were these.

First, the gym opens only from 8.30 am because it is on the top floor and the stomping apparently could affect those below.

Second, the room I had had a tree trunk that split the view. It would be ideal for those who want to do a quick escape. But apart from James Bond and Jason Bourne, I find it hard to see the utility. They should cut the tree and replant it.

Service was acceptable but cold.

All things considered, I would recommend it, esp. if the price is right. Go for the lake view rather than the mountain/noisy-road view.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2006

My new wife and I stayed at the Lido Seegarten for a few days during our honeymoon excursion across Europe. We saw Lugano on the train from Zurich to Venice. We hated Venice and decided to back track to Lugano. We got a suite with a private patio right on the lake. It was the most beautiful view and climate we experienced on out trip. The room was clean, modern, comfortable. There was a wetbar, flat-screen tv with lots of channels and even a scale in the bathroom. The staff was friendly and always willing to help. There was a nice pool and a floating dock in case you want to swim in the lake. Everything is expensive in Lugano -hotels, food, shopping- and all across Switzerland for that matter, but it was definitely worth the price.
