I agree with what Melachocolat had written. Though the hotel is not located right in the city center of Lugano, that's not a problem for us as we have a bus to bring us back and from the center, which is only 15 minutes drive. But I loved the location as it's quiet and just by the lakeside with GREAT...

This hotel is located directly by the lake. It has a pool and garden area outside for sunbathing. The feel of this is very nice. It's main restaurant has a great setting by the lake with outside seating which is faboulous during the summer months. In the evening they play cheesy live music- great for everybody over 50. Even though...

This hotel was overall, very nice. The mountain view room was a joke- there was no reason to open the curtains. The pool and lake area were very nice. The downside to this hotel was the staff. A few staff members were very nice, but a few were down right rude and snobbish. The restaurant at the lake is a...

We went to the Olivella for a weekend getaway and we were not disappointed. The hotel is located approximately 7 km from Lugano. It is a charming little hotel right on the lake with beautiful views. The service all around was wonderful. My favorite of course was the restaurant Panorama. The meals there are quite lovely and the service outstanding....

My wife and I just spent 4 days at the hotel in a garden view room: forget the garden view and keep the curtains closed. The hillside view is of no interest however the room is small but lovely (see picture) - a typical large city 4* room. From what we saw the rooms facing the lake are quite larger...

The Swiss Diamond Hotel is locates about 8 km from Lugano. It's right on the lake with beautiful views. Is has several restaurants and it's a good place for meetings. Rooms are big and new. Often full at weekends and rather empty over the week.

We stopped at the hotel for a few days to see Lugano during a driving trip from Florence to Switzerland. Sadly, it rained heavily which obscured much of the lake's beauty. The hotel is a little gem, very clean and professional. The spa has limited facilities indoors but if the weather had been better, we would have enjoyed much more...

My family stayed at the Swiss Diamond on a recent trip to Italy and Switzerland. Rooms are reasonable size and have a lovely view of the lake.
