We met here to celebrate my sister's birthday on the 1 of august combined with a short vacation. It was great to watch the fireworks (and lake) from the balcony. The room was good, not very big, but enough for the single occupancy and I slept like a rose. The wi-fi did not work properly in the room during my...

The Hotel Bellevue Au Lac isn't the best hotel in the world, or possibly even Lugano (go to the Splendide Royal next door for that) , but the staff are fantastic, the rooms clean (although a bit dated), and the views to the lake outstanding. I'd stay here again.

Chose this hotel for an overnight stay on business. This is the typical example of a swiss hotel. Clean but average rooms (stayed in 216, view on the parking lot), poor breakfast (buffet with the standard selection of Croissants, rubber-like cheese and orange juice), and mixed decoration in the lobby. Initially asked for a room with internet and was told...

Good hotel, staff very friendly and helpful, room (on the fifth floor) was clean with a new bathroom (but shower was bad). Unfortunately, the pool is in need of updating and the water cloudy. Swim instead in the Lido across the street in the lake! The hotel also has its own parking lot, with a small charge.

We stayed here 1 night a few weeks ago. The staff was super nice and helpful. For the rate that i received from Bestwestern over the phone was not at all what I expected to pay for! The staff did give us a lake view, which was very nice of them. We didnt experience any noise, even though we faced...

We had seen this hotel an a previous trip and thought we would like to stay there on our next visit. We booked through a tour operator with the hotel as part of the 10 day package and our rate included half board. We were not made aware that the hotel was now Best Western. The outside of the hotel...

This hotel sits down at the Western end of Lugano, at Paradiso. There is an SBB station at Paradiso with 2 trains an hour in each direction, and from here it is about an 8 minute walk to the hotel. However, from Lugano's main SBB station, it is a good 1.5-2 mile walk (although downhill). I found the area beautiful,...

Location is prime, in front of the lake and within walking distance to the main thoroughfare of Lugano. Our room was large enough for a King-size bed and a roll-away bed for our daughter, plus the TV, a desk and a closet, all nicely decorated in light pastel colors. The bathroom was huge and well-lit, with separate bathtub and shower...
