We recently stayed at the hotel. It was wonderful. The hotel is very well maintained and is situated just 5-7 mins walk from the main center. We like the idea of staying at a place just a little outside of the main center to avoid the noise. It is located right in front of the lake. We had a room that had a side view of the lake, but it was good enough for us because we had a balcony that allowed us to see a part of the lake. The room was nicely decorated and well maintained. There is a clear difference between well maintained old-style rooms like this as compared to the terrible ones in 5 star hotels in Rome. I am very particular about having a clean and modern bathroom. I am very happy to say that Hotel Splendid had a WONDERFUL and CLEAN bathroom. We only had breakfast in the hotel and it was really good. There was a lot of variety and the staff was great and very attentive. I highly recommend the breakfast. The only issue was that the AC was not working properly and the staff tagged our bag to the wrong person when we left it there for a couple of hours after checkout.
Overall, we had a great stay. The staff was wonderful. We will stay there again if we go back to Lugano. I would recommend it if you are staying for 1 or 2 nights. Anything more than that, I would suggest some place more affordable.
