I really enjoyed my stay at this splendid hotel. It is located right across the street from the lake and the view from my lake front room is stunning and amazingly beautiful. The room is spacious, very clean and comfortable. The hotel is in the middle of everything that you would want as a tourist. The restaurant is very elegant,... More

This is good, classic high class hotel with style. Strategically located at lake side with beautiful views, great breakfast. Fast check in. Old design but clean bathrooms with ETRO amenities and designer interior. Unfortunately old is old and this hotel also needs refurbishment soon. Bar and everything closes by midnight, so if you work until late and count on late... More

The Splendide is one of the many examples of what I like to call the 'Grandes Dames' hotels that dot the lakes in Ticino. A mix of old and new, these hotels have preserved the architecture and charm of a bygone era. We stayed in renovated rooms with lakeview terraces with all you can expect from a 5-star property -...

According the pictures on the website the building is beautiful. A lot of the rooms, however, are in a really ugly building next door! The room was fine but really not worth the extortionate price they charge. And there's no pool.... You need to walk to another hotel where there is an indoor pool. The service was very good as...

The property has an outstanding location, friendly staff, spacious rooms (stayed in a junior suite which has separate seating area which accommodated 2 extra beds for my kids) Furniture is outdated but clean, a bit too classic, Would definitely stay here again,

On Lake Lugano, we were lucky to face the lake! The serenity is real. We visit palaces throughout Europe and here the molding, height of the lobby area walls, room size, entry ways, and restaurants are similar. Exquisite!! To us, we loved our stay -- from reading other TrAdv reviews, others didn't. Two parts of the hotel. Am told, one... More

Walking into reception I was hesitant.....however the room was fine - with a very good shower. We had a side room so view of the lake if you lent out. Very nice surprise - the pool situated at the rear of the hotel on a terraced garden - really nice. Another surprise, dinner I didn't realise we had half board.... More

Luxurious premises, perfect service, attentive, polite and very efficient staff, good restaurant and exceptional breakfast, this hotel is simply breathtaking, especially if you are in a major suite facing the lake. Exchange service, bikes and car for hire, concierge service, everything is perfect. Do not mind about the cost, it is worth it in this luxurious city in the Ticino... More
