My boyfriend and I decided to make a spontaneous trip for my birhtday! So we drove to Lugano and saw the beautiful hotel Splendide and were in awe! We did not have a reservation and just entered and asked if there were any rooms, the receptionist was very friendly and even gave us a beautiful room with view on the...

The hotel is wonderfully located, right on the lake side. I had a room in the 'old' building without a lake view, which was a shame, but the room was large, well-furnished and very comfortable. Staff were without exception friendly and helpful. Breakfast was an excellent buffet, but as in so many places, the staff appear not to know that...

This hotel enjoys an enviable lakefront location with stunning views of the Como lake and area. The website is a bit misleading as it only shows the original building and my expectations were to be staying in a restored turn of the twentieth century building and was booked into an annex build in 1977. The room was comfortable and well...

The hotel is at an amazing location overlooking the lake and very centrally located. The newly restored rooms and very well appointed. The problem was with air conditioning. The heating was on when temperature outside was 18*c - had to keep the windows open , Mosquitos had a feast on us. Breakfast restaurant staff is worst ever seen. Absolutely non...

Not only a lovely and comfortable hotel, the staff goes above and beyond. Rafael, the concierge, was instrumental in getting my lost watch back to me in an effortless and timely manner. It's not often you find that kind of service. I would recommend this property to anyone who wanted to have a beautiful view of the lake and a...

My wife & I spent 3 nights at this Hotel, beginning our "Tauck , "Italian Lakes: Venice, Florence & Rome Tour". Hotel staff very accommodating, and our nicely sized room which over looked Lake Lagano, also had an outside balcony . Breakfast provided each morning was very good with great service!

I had the privilege of staying at this lovely hotel on 4 different occasions in 2011. My husband and I had previously visited Lugano in 2005 and very much enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Each of my 2011 stays were excellent and lived up to my expectations. The hotel will arrange to pick you up at Lugano airport or...

Across from the Lake Lugano waterfront, this hotel is the epitome of old-world graciousness. Food is fantastic. The breakfast buffet has many novel delights as well as traditional favorites. Dinner is equally inspired. Rooms are beautifully kept up -- the hotel is more than a century old -- but furnishings could be a little more comfortable. Service, location, and cuisine...
