Hotel Campione

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This place is more of a fancy hostel than a hotel. Only it comes with hotel prices, which do not add up to what you get. I have never paid so much, for so little. Pros. The staff were nice. There is a pool. Cons. - everything else. Read on. If you have a car, you end up paying 15francs per night extra. If you don't have a car, then you don't want to be in this area. Breakfast is average at best while being 2x the price of any restaurant nearby. All of which have delicious food. The rooms are too small and cramped unless you upgrade. Which they only offered us because they knew we were not going to check in at all, and were just going to stay somewhere else. This place is a glorified hostel. They treat their parking the same way. I would never stay at this 'hotel' again.

I booked this after reading many of the good reviews online. We booked directly through the hotel's website. We arrived on a very hot day after a drive from Venice to find that they had no record of our reservation. We showed them our confirmation and luckily they had a room. They were apologetic, but it was still frustrating and time consuming. We went to our room and got settled. Also, I did not see any inkling of the renovations another reviewer talked about. We noticed our room was quite hot (30+ degrees). We had overheard another couple complaining about their A/C not working when we checked in. We went to the front desk and were given a remote control to work the A/C. Needless to say, it worked in the living area, but not in the bedroom. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant. Good food, friendly but slow service. Our lake view room also overlooked the road and there is quite a bit of construction going on above the hotel. At breakfast, we heard a different couple again complaining about the air conditioning not working in their room. Due to all of this, we checked out a day early. The hotel very kindly called and apologized and said they had fixed the A/C in our room, but we had already checked out at this point. My husband summed it up best by saying "never have we paid so much for so little"

We visited Hotel Campione twice in our holiday. We had a lovely stay. The staff was very friendly, helped us with sight seeing experience in the area (monte bré) + comfortable room. + Good food (Diner,breakfast) + and the swimming pool was fantastic with a great view at the lake. We recommend this hotel.

Majority of rooms have been completely renovated, we stayed in a not-yet renovated room which was still nice. Hotel was recently re-painted, got new terrace/balcony glass separators. Great breakfast with local produce (cheeses, salume, etc). Location is great: walking distance (~10 min) from the centre of Campione d'Italia (great restaurant tip: the Monello), convenient for trips to Melide (Swiss-Miniatur), Morcote, Mendrisio (outlet shopping), Lugano. Beautiful panorama to enjoy from the terrace (breakfast/lunch) and the pool area. Cleverly designed children's pool (preventing kids to go into the big pool). Very friendly staff. We'll never stay in Lugano again (overpriced, less nice/much more expensive hotels, less child friendly) and happily go back to the Hotel Campione! PS: Price levels are fair (for the rooms, also for the parking eg 15.- per night for the garage), but many first-time-visitors are generally shocked (or unprepared/uninformed) by the overall price level.

Beautiful room, fantastic views, friendly staff, good food. Location is very convenient to Roma Plaza and casino. The room was extremely comfortable and the view from our patio balcony was beautiful. The front desk staff was very welcoming and had very helpful suggestions for lunch locations nearby.

After a long working day it was brilliant to enter at Hotel Campione and enjoy the friendly stuff and the clean and well equipped room. Furthermore the hotel is close to ITA border and close located to the lake. The area is very beautiful and invited for hiking. Keep on Campione Team!

The hotel campione has a fantastic view over the lake, it is worth it to take an upper floor with balcony. Also the upper rooms seem more modern and bright. From the hotel it is a 10-15 mins walk to the casino, which is also convenient, and half of the walk is alongside the lake.

They gave us upgraded room for free with beautiful view on Lugano lake. Very friendly staff. Nice and quiet place for relaxing. Very good price for adorable room. Parking is bit limited. Very nice place!

Arrived exhausted after a long journey that included a puncture on the motorway. Received an upgraded room and welcome drink. Comfortable bed and pristine bathroom so ideal for an unexpected overnight stop before continuing journey.

Nice small hotel. Very comfortable, and staff is extremely attentive and helpful. Amazing views from the terrace and pool area, delightful small swimming pool. The food in the restaurant was not great, but with that view is worth it. They have a Special Family Offer, with tickets for several local attractions, including a pleasant motor boat tour on the Lugano Lake - "Dad as captain". My family would love to stay there again.
