We stayed one night in Lugano at Delfino and we're very pleased with it. Beautiful views over the lake, a 10 minute walk down to the lake. We had a lovely explore around the lake a city centre. Lovely brekky in lovely surroundings, excellent service. And a bonus tea making facilities in your room!

We spent just one night whilst passing through en route from Italy to UK. The hotel is excellently located, and catered for us (couple travelling with small dog) without fuss. Only strange thing was not having an iron that we could use in the room (not allowed apparently??). Otherwise, very satisfactory. Only ate breakfast, which was somewhat limited.

Everything about this hotel was excellent. I had looked at other hotels on the lake front, but the location of this one was much better as elevated, so from the balcony in my bedroom I could sit facing with a view onto the lake and mountains. The breakfast was very good with great selection of fruits and everything really fresh....

The hotel was quite nice, clean and pleasant with great customer service. The single room was one of the largest that I experienced in Europe and having a balcony was a nice treat. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The rooms are air conditioned which made for a great and comfortable night's sleep. Some of the bathrooms have been updated,...

Good clean hotel with average size rooms and with a very good buffet breakfast. Highly priced for its position. Not much around hotel and would look for something else closer to town and pay a bit more.

The Delfino is a little way out from the city centre, towards Paradiso, but still easily walkable. The hotel staff, from reception to bar staff and cleaners, were all friendly and helpful. I thought the furnishing overall was pretty good for the price, and there is a large bar area leading out to the pool and terrace, which is nice...
