Spectacular view from the hill, so it‘s a good thing they have electric Smarts abailable. Suites are spacious and clean. The breakfast buffet has a good choice and eggs can be ordered in your preferred style. The staff is very attentious and helpful.

Probably one of the best locations around Lugano with an excellent view and at the same time very quiet. Also the level of the service is at a top level, and happy to help in case of special requests.

The view hotels in lugano is beautiful and is well done. The service is outstanding and the people are very friendly. The residence however associates with the hotel which are being marketing as studios are a different ball game. They have nothing to do with the hotel and they are quiet a disspoaintmnt. For the price we are paying i could have gotten a five star proper hotel room with a real view on the lake i n the center of the lugano. The residence are to be avoided at all times to be honest

Dear Sundus H, Thank you for having stayed in our property and dedicated your time to review us. We are delighted to read that our ambassadors could assist you at their best. We are sorry to read that the studio category that did not meet your expectations. They are very popular for guests travelling with children or in need of a totally separated dining room with kitchenette facility, while benefitting of all services of the suites category and the privacy of an independent building entrance. We always suggest clients to contact our reservation officers, so to receive full details or suggestion on the most suitable category available for the dates of interest. Hope to welcoming you back on a future visit to Lugano. With our kindest regards

Very nice hotel and amazing location! It's not very often I'm fully satisfied, but this time I am. From arriving at the hotel to checking out it was truly a 5 star experience. Service and mindset of the staff, room, restaurant and the view, wow. I can say that you totally understand the name of the hotel when having breakfast at the terrace in the morning, or dinner in the evening, amazing! If you are stressed and need to relax, go there! On my list of top 5 hotels I stayed at, and I stayed at many!

A diner up in the hill, overlooking Lugano and the lake, with ans excellent set menu offer, allows to enjoy the place and the food. Very modern and with an excellent service, and dishes creation makes your dinner enjoyable, The restaurant has a potential future, could be increased by the presentation menu offer, but all over was great.

The room, location and were food were incredible! The staff beyond friendly!! We hiked the San Salvatore trail from hotel parking lot - a must do. The E bikes added additional fun as a complimentary perk. Loved it! Drive to city center and parking at the at center is very quick and convenient.

Very nice, small hotel. Room: very nice design, loved it! Be aware : the bathroom is in the room, not separate. Fine by me, was traveling by myself. But I know not everyone likes that. But: the room does look very nice! Wellness: I booked this, because I was recovering from an illness and wanted to stay in the wellness four hours, relaxing, taking steamboats, and healing my lungs. But then this place may not be the right spot. The wellness is nice, but you have to book the sauna and steam bath in advance for a time slot of 30 or 60 minutes. Not very practical, if you wanna spend several hours there, taking a steam / relaxing / taking another steam / and so on... BUT: the salt room is great! Spend a lot of time there! Restaurant: had a lovely dinner, took the 5 course menu. Was great! Great service by the very handsome waiter! Breakfast: very good! And again: a most charming waiter with gorgeous eyes and a sexy smile. Loved it! To do: please use the free electric mini cars of the hotel, or even better, use the free electric bikes. I did a 20 km tour. Very cool! For me, it misses a bit of the grandness, or exclusiveness for a 5 star, but maybe I'm too spoiled. Mind you: this is a very, very nice place!!

We stayed here 3 times in the past months (October, November and December-January) and also spent New Year’s Eve here. The hotel is beautiful, very nicely furnished, very clean and - of course - has a breathtaking view. We always sleep with curtains open so we wake up seeing the lake and mountains. Besides the hotel itself, they offer so many services that make a stay exceptionally convenient. The food is amazing, because of Covid we weren’t able to eat elsewhere so we ate at the hotel for an entire week and we were not mad at it. The selection and quality is divine. On top of all that, everyone from the staff is so lovely, going out of their way to make us happy, you really feel extremely welcomed here. We love The View because it’s a small and luxury hotel, it’s quiet, beautiful, relaxing and instantly felt a bit like home. I definitely recommend it and if I could give 100 stars, I would!

- a warm welcome upon arrival in the spacious garage of The View - being ushered into a stylish Junior Suite with fantastic sea, mountain and city view - having an energizing massage in a Spa that leave no wishes open - swimming in a large indoor pool with magnificent mountain view - eating in a restaurant with an amazing menu and wine list and enjoying tasty and creatively cooked food presented in a way that you feel bad destroying the picture on the plate - feeling pampered by a professional but truly friendly staff except for - one waiter who didn't want to wear his mask properly (partly covered the month only, partly did cover anything when serving), the kitchen staff not wearing masks and allowing guests to take pictures and taking phone calls in the sauna - that's what at least I don't need at all
