An overnight stay turned into a remarkable 24 hour excursion! From the moment that the smiling bellman took our car to the carpark, till we checked out and received a fun filled box of pistachio chocolates, it was one delight after another. Our room overlooked the Lake, and had a lovely balcony. There were comfortable lounge chairs in the room,... More

Switzerland is not cheap and 5-star Swiss hotels can be very pricey indeed. Having got that out of the way, however, we can thoroughly recommend the Swiss Diamond Hotel as an excellent base from which to explore the Lake Lugano area and in which to enjoy some pampering and luxury. We found the room very comfortable and spotlessly clean, although... More

This is a wonderful huge boutique hotel on the outskirts of Lugano. Located near the lakeside, adding to its charm. Lobby is very small , but quaint.

This is the one. Right out of town, the staff immediately make you feel like the most important guest. The room overlooking the lake was stunning. Bar and restaurant equally wonderful. Never going to stay anywhere else in Lugano; can't be beat.

Beautiful hotel, rooms with balcony overlooking the lake. Excellent service. Lovely Spa. I found the drinks at the bar a bit overpriced. The one meal we had in the bar wasn't great, and also a bit overpriced. Otherwise a fabulous stay. Hotel is in an excellent location.
