The "Residence" was such a disappointment after seeing pictures and checking in at the beautiful" Villa". Had 2 rooms: one Jr. Suite (Room 222) was large enough, but very poorly and confusingly furnished, really very ugly. The living room and bedroom had very high ceilings with plain white walls, no art to speak of, damask-covered furniture completely lacking in style that didn't fit the contemporary "feel" of the architecture of the room; very unattractive and minimally furnished. Not miniminally furnished in a cool, contemporary vibe; but minimally furnished in a "we don't have a theme here" vibe. Bedroom was small, white, no art, no dresser (only one long shelf on the wall)--so bad I took a picture and sent back to my AmEx Platinum travel agent asking him to find me a beautiful hotel in Lugano. Other room (Room 300, a "studio" style) was only kind of cool. Slightly better decor, but the art on the walls was sooooo out of place, barely an acceptable room. The Villa is a beautiful, historic building with lovely grounds and presence. The Residence is across the street and very unattractive,and strange: poured pink concrete walls in halls, and dark green METAL doors. Checked out early after one night and went to Paris. Staff, however, was lovely and so impressive. Breakfast (included) was wonderful and extensive. And, of course, Lake Lugano is breathtaking.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Situated high above the Bay of Lugano this exceptional boutique hotel offers first-class suites and rooms. The tastefully arranged spacious rooms, the terraces with breathtaking views, two heated outdoor pools, tennis courts and a wide range of facilities leave nothing to be desired. Neither does the exquisite Mediterranean cuisine of Dario Ranza, served in the light-flooded restaurants. Jewel of the hotel is Kiso: a heavenly, exclusive Spa offering unadulterated luxury, privacy and exclusive treatments. Nothing else to be desired - a truly royal feeling. ... more less
