My wife and I spent 2 amazing nights at Karhaus last week and it totally exceeded our expectations. Not only was the view amazing (their pictures did not lie) but the facility, rooms, common areas a, spa, pool, and dining room were new, clean and very pleasing. The staff was amazing from the front desk, the restaurant, and the spa, courteous, helpful, and very friendly. The Chef was amazing and adapted his recipes to accommodate my wife's food allergies without any impact on the quality or flavor of the food; in other words they totally lived up to their healthy lifestyle passion and mission. Most staff spoke English so there was no language barrier. The drives up and down were thrilling as the road is narrow but well worth the challenge. We would recommend for those who don't enjoy such rides to hire a taxi or perhaps see if the hotel could pick you up at the train station. We are DEFINITELY going back!
We stayed two days in the Residence building. It was a large, comfortable suite. Excellent for the price we paid. The breakfast was best we had in our two weeks in Switzerland and Italy. May be too far from the town center for those that like to walk to restaurants, shops, etc., and the hotel is up on a hill.
The staff is very friendly. The room was clean and it had everything I needed, wireless, a clean big bathroom, air conditioner, flat screen TV and a comfortable bed (actually I was given a large three-bed-room although I originally asked for a single). It had a big balcony overlooking the busy street going to town center, a distant half view of the lake.
It is an old building but taken very good care of. Even if they might still delay a total interior renivation; they certainly need to have new window fences and sealings to block the occasional street noise; it was the only downside I could see. I recommend this hotel to families and business travelers alike; if you nightsleep is carefree.

A well maintained, grandly decorated hotel on the edge of Lake Lugano. Very friendly and helpful reception, concierge and bar staff (we did not eat in the hotel restaurant, but room service food was fine), with a clean and comfortable room. Only slight let-down was the balcony, which was only reasonably clean and not particularly inviting (our room was located on the end of the hotel), although it had a fine view out over Lake Lugano.
