The location was stunning, the staff superb, the free breakfast incredible, the town and shopping lovely. The staff could not do enough for us. The amenities are first class. Would rate a 10 if I could.
The hotel rating is definitely far from reality. Hotel decor is "old" and feels stuffy.. Personnel helpful but not thorough (they made me pay twice for the room...). Room rather small. There was a building site just across the hotel, that did not improve the overall feeling. Breakfast correct, ambience very stuffy.
Wifi did not work in the room, very slow and patchy in the entrance hall. Definitely you can get a much better deal for just a bit more money (Continental Parkhotel for instance or the Victoria au Lac)

The Best Western Bellevue au Lac, a first-class hotel on the scenic Lugano lakefront, offers all the comforts, style and …More
We recently spend one night at Villa Principe Leopoldo in Lugano. Beautiful neighborhood setting with great views of the lake. Our room was in the "residences", which is across the street from the main hotel building, but that is really not an inconvenience at all. I've stayed at hotels where the room is MUCH farther away than in this situation. Rooms are spacious and very nice. Loved having our own outdoor patio. It felt much to me like a Beverly Hills or Bel Air setting.
