Somehow I feel you must use the word "grand" when writing about this hotel. I have stayed at a couple other hotels in the Lugano area, but this one has the grandest feel. It is old-world, European luxury, with a beautiful lobby and excellent lake front location. On the down side, my room felt a bit dated and small. This hotel is a solid option if you are in the area.

The hotel is situadted 5-7 min by walk to center of the city, hotel inside is very beautiful, quality of service is very high, rooms , bathrooms are amazing. It's my 2nd time in that hotel.
Only one minus- the swiming pool was not work, they propose to take us to other hotel swiming pool for free, but we decline, as i understand that happned only at Decembers.
All other is absolutly great,

a little away from the main area but a great property to stay at. the staff is incredible! i was traveling there with my husband. he had booked the best room for us. the view from the room was just fabulous. i wish i could have stayed there forever, but ofcorse one has to return back to reality at some point of time. but i have to say that the staff is doing a great job in taking the best care of the property and the people coming there.

I have stayed here on numerous occasions and simply adore this hotel - love sitting out over the lake having my espresso! They sport a great outdoor terrace restaurant, and in the summer breakfast is marvelous

Located slightly off the main area of Lugano (about 15 min walk), my sister and I were greeted warmly by the staff at the Spendid Royal, and led to a room that was clean but looked like grandmas house. That aside everything else was great. New bathrooms, comfortable beds, great breakfast, friendly staff, and terrific views of the lake. Just don't go here if you're looking for anything trendy.

This is a negresco style brand new decorated hotel, the rooms have quite high ceilings and is very fresh. The lake view in each room will stun you. The room service is excellent and the staff is very friendly, the hotel is located just at the corner of the main street of Lugano where all the shops restaurants are situated, it is in the center yet holds a perfectly quite location.

Room Tip: Take a Junior Suite for utmost comfort
