Good stay, great staff, comfortable rooms, very clean, old fashioned luxury. Small issue, there is no pool but if you walk 400 metres you can enjoy the Eden deck and hopefully get a deck chair. Staff really try to make stay enjoyable. Bathrooms have shower in bath tub not a walk in shower. Reception area is a bit boring with... More

I'm just in love with this hotel. Beautiful room with the best sheets ever. A delightful terrace overlooking the lake. Just waking up to the lake puts you in a good mood. The hotel is very well located, close to shops and restaurants, but not in a busy area. Very close to boat rides and the funicular if you need... More

We had a very comfortable hotel that we enjoyed. Our room had a beautiful view of the lake and was well appointed. Service was first class and the public rooms were very nice. The bed was comfortable and we were happy here.

I loved everything about this hotel but it is the people who work here who made my stay so wonderful. Our room was large and very clean and comfortable. One of the most comfortable hotel beds I have ever slept in. The room was very quiet and I got a great nights sleep. We loved the large bathroom with two... More

Stayed here for two nights as part of a tour and was very pleased with the property and the staff. The outside is gorgeous (although the new wing is not as pleasing to the eye) and the inside has very nice details. Not right in the old city center, but only an enjoyable stroll beside the lake to get there.... More

Every visit this chique hotel keeps up its high quality service, friendly staff and clean rooms. Dogs are welcome. Ideally positioned near the city center, this hotel with its own parking garage is an ideal place for a comfortable stopover.

This is a beautiful hotel overlooking Lake Lugano. This is where we would stay upon a return without hesitation. It's expensive but it's a five star in Switzerland so you have to expect it. I found the bed a little too hard for my liking however we found this in just about every hotel during our two week vacation in... More

Exquisite hotel, impeccable staff. The rooms are fabulous in the old section of the hotel. (we did not stay in the newer wing. The breakfast brunch was splendid and huge. nothing you could ever want is missing - and then some. The location across from the lake, and a very short walk from the heart of old town.

Having taken the train from Zurich, we decided to walk from the station on a beautiful day, with directions given to us by the kind train personnel.

Try to ask room with a view of Lugano lake! The rooms are spacious and comfortable! A bit old-school The breakfast is the same quality as the hotel. So order bottle of champagne, open your balcony window and have a pleasure to look at the sunset! cheers Rod
