Villa Principe Leopoldo

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Nice hotel, located up the hill above Lugano. All too poshy, but nice and smiling staff. A bit on the expensive side, but worth the luxury you get.

Location: High above Lake Lugano, need a car to get there. Beware: the hotel consists of the Villa itself (with view on the lake) and the Residence (with no view at all). Rooms: We stayed at a renovated room in the Residence and found it extremely big and comfortable. The bathroom facilities are ok, but the shower could be better. No tea/coffee in-room facilities, but free water is provided. Breakfast: pretty good selection of cold cuts, cheese, fruits and cereals. Hot selections limited to eggs and ham. Coffee offered and served. Restaurant: expensive and dress-coded, we did not go there. Spa: we did not make it there as reservations are required. Gym: reasonably equipped, water and towels provided. Sauna was closed for renovation. Staff: very "posh", like a "royalty butler". But they do their job. Overall, good impression and recommended.
