The views from Principe Leopoldo were stunning. Overall, a great stay! Loved the location, the rooms were beautiful and the staff was very helpful as we were traveling with a small child! The value was great. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Principe Leopoldo is a great hotel. The service was outstanding, my room was spacious, clean and with incredible views. The food at the restaurant was delicious. I loved staying here. Everyone should have the experience of staying at this hotel.

Visited the restaurant at the Villa Principe Leopoldo and tried the degustation menu CHF 140 and was speechless for the quality, execution, presentation and taste of every single dish this without head chef Ranza but lead by his young sous-chef Marco.
Service from Mr Speziale was classy, not intrusive and extremely attentive
Highly recommendable for foodies since in Lugano you can hardly find somewhere that can match that.
The view both for the aperitif and the dinner are stunning. A definite stop for a romantic dinner or for friends outing that enjoy the finer things in life. Hightly recommended.

Huge room with separate baths for him and her was the first thing I noticed as I opened the heavy and substantial entrance door. Beige Italian marble everywhere. It was a quoted as a "superior room" but cost only euro 300 using Relais & Chateau vouchers and was the size of a junior. All in grand 1970 Swiss style . Paino bar at sunset a must! Breath taking view of lac Lugano. dinner was good but expensive as are all Swiss restaurants everywhere.

Room Tip: Call Relais and chateau to book thru them

This hotel is super good. Me my husband and son stayed here last week for 2 nights. We stayed in the villa and the room was huge and spacious.the staff is very friendly.there was a small kitchen also in the room. The bathroom was excellent.there was a huge balcony in front of our room. Breakfast was amazing. We had our dinner once in the villa and the next night in the residence. Food was amazing, in the live piano bar, in the open overlooking the lake. I would love to go to Lugano again just to be back in this hotel :)

We had a very good stay at the Villa Principe Leopoldo. The place as well as the view were impressive. The people over there were nice, smiling and helpful. Moreover, we were upgraded as a 5C members so we enjoyed even more our stay :-). Bear in mind the rooms are different between the Villa where we stayed and the Residence where we should have stayed normally... The Villa is much more pleasant, comfortable as well as modern. However, the rooms are more expensive. The only thing they should improve it's their breakfast which was "fair" from my point of view. I would have liked a better buffet with more choice of food, bread, pastry, beverages, type of eggs, fruit salad, etc.

Thank you again for your hospitality.

Room Tip: Rooms at the Villa are better and modern because they have been renovated than at the Residence. I...

I loved this hotel. It was so peaceful and luxurious. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a trailer on our car with a motorcycle and they were more than accommodating with parking even offering to help us unhook the bike from the trailer, etc.
Our room was large and clean and had everything we needed. The only issue was that the bathroom smelled a little bit like the kitchen (must have been a vent issue). We were in the residence part of the hotel. We did have dinner in the older part which overlooks the lake and it was over priced, but tasted wonderful! It was a splurge. Check the prices before booking dinner.
The breakfast was tasty we were able to eat outside. The waitstaff were friendly and happy to speak in almost any language. We did not use the spa, but used the outdoor pool late a night.
Walking to downtown Lugano is downhill and not too far. (about 20 minutes). We took the free shuttle back to the hotel. I don't know how it would be on bad weather days or in the winter, but in the summer, it was great.

Room Tip: Rooms in residence part overlooking the pool seem best.
