This hotel is well situated, located a very pleasant 10 minute lake-side walk from the central shopping area of Lugano. It boasts an old and new building, each with different stylings but otherwise offering pretty much the same in terms of (quality in-room) amenities. Most rooms face the lake and offer terrific views. Staff is friendly and responsive, breakfasts are...

This hotel distinguishes itself from other 5-star properties by the quality of its staff, their attentiveness, and their care to call the customers by name. They remember the customers from previous visits and often recall the preferences of their guests.

The concierge efficiently arranged train station transportation, made suggestions for a leisurely day, and booked dinner reservations. Francesco, and his team provided memorable hospitality at dinner and breakfast service. The sommelier was extremely helpful in recommending...

This hotel provided a very satisfying stay. We had a room with a view of the lake and the location of the hotel provides easy walking to quite a few shops as well as a lovely lakefront stroll. The hotel is extremely well appointed with elegant classic artwork on the wall, marble stairs and a welcoming lobby with fresh flowers...

Amazing service and luxury! Must stay for every business traveler. Close to everything you need. The views towards the lake are simply breathtaking. The charge is a little steep but well worth it. For Swiss standards it is great

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...

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 -...
