The Splendide Royal in Lugano was really a wonderful find. My husband and I, years ago, passing by Lugano, saw this hotel but did not stay in it at the time. Last february, visiting Lugano again, we decided to stay at the Splendide for a couple of days. It was a wise decision. The hotel has two wings side by...

We were most impressed with the room itself beautiful high ceilings, traditional furniture, tons of marble and a gorgeous Venetian chandeliers. The front desk staff was very pleasant and knowledgeable, with the exception if one young lady who did not understand what we were asking her in English or Italian, which was very frustrating, as you would expect the staff...

This classic style hotel, on the shores of Lake Lugano, has friendly staff, good service and a beautiful ground floor layout, with high ceilings and large windows overlooking the lake. I stayed for 3 nights in the "new" part of the hotel (on the left as you enter the reception) which is not a very nice looking concrete addition to...

I stayed here a couple of years ago, so this is a late review. However I must say it has fantastic concierge service, beautiful views from the lake and very close to great party places. The hotel has a nice feeling of ancient grandeur. Decoration is simple but elegant. Room service is fab. Definitely a must when in Lugano.

I spent only one night at the Splendide Royal for business and I really enjoyed my short stay there. First, the hotel is very well located, with a superb view over the lake. Staff is really helpful, knowledgeable and very welcoming. Finally, I highly recommend the breakfast there which offers a lot of choices, fresh orange juices, excellent pastries, etc....

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...
