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.
This hotel ticked all my boxes with free wifi and comfort. The staff went out of their way to help with anything requested. When booking our trnasfer to Malpesa the car arrived early. The room was fantastic two bathrooms both equally set up. The bed was the best we had slept in over a one month stay in Italy, Germany and Switzerland. The balcony was well set up and the grounds were beautiful with the christmas lights all set up.
The meals were fantastic and service second to none. Although a little way from the city it was wonderfully quiet and the stroll into the main area a delight as you walk through lovely parks and on the waterfront.
A wonderful city to visit and a great hotel to stay in. We stayed in a Junior suite and couldn't have asked for a more luxury stay.

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.
Good hotel for few nights. It situated up on a hill, but has train. Train works till 9-10 pm. Round trip is 6 franks. Stuff is nice, restaurant is very good. Hotel has two pools and small fitness. If you do not mind to spend extra 30 franks/ night, ask for lake-view room with balkony. It worth it even if you do not spend to much time in hotel. Is not that much to do in Locarno itself, but if you have a car you can go to nearby Ascorno (5 min.)

The hotel was very charming, clean and the room was A+. The staff was top notch. I loved the breakfast buffet. So many wonderful things to select and the presentation was beautiful. The hotel is very close to many stores, the lake and museums. I will certainly stay here again and highly recommend it.

Wonderful to see our daughter before she left for Rwanda nov 1. Could have held her forever! Beautiful scenery, lots to do, be prepared to do lots and lots of walking. Wonderful little shops, reasonably priced restuarants/trattorias nearby, and there simply is not one bad view.. Walk along the lake, the public restrooms quite clean, be prepared to scoot out of the way when the lunch hour begins...tons of international students from every part of the globe scurrying on foot and bikes trying to catch a quick lunch before next class. Very friendly people, multi lingual, respond to courtesy when treated politely. Please, do not be an ugly disgruntled traveler! We had a marvelous, tho too short time in Lugano, would have do e more, but main reason was to see our daughter before she finishes up in Rwanda. Would have loved to take boat excursion, not enough time, but really enjoyed just taking it nice and easy. There is not one bad thing thing about Lugano at all. Do a bit of planning before you get there, take advantage of special deals because it is pricey. If you're there as a tourist, pretend you're a houseguest who wants to be asked back and you can't go wrong.

We stayed for one night on our way to Tuscany. The room was beautiful and very comfortable and the waiter was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was delicious and very plentiful. Having family in Tuscany, we will no doubt be staying here on the way there or back again sometime in the future.
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.
