I stayed at Villa Principe Leopoldo Hotel & SPA for 3 days combining a business trip, attending a conference in their panoramic hall with spectacular view over Lake Lugano and staying there over the weekend. We stayed in a beautiful new renovated Junior Suite with large terrace, 2 bathrooms, very comfortable bed and lot of amenities at the main Villa...

had a conference at the hotel and the conference room had a nice view of the lake. Used to be an old house on top of the hill overlooking Lake Lugano. They split the building in 2, 1 for the meeting conference and restaurant while the other is for the residence.. which is about 2-3 minutes walk away. The rooms...

Assuming, that all rooms in the main building have lake views I reserved there, but found out, that my room faced an ugly hedge. So I changed to "junior suite" with lake view which increased the price by 60%. Rooms are decent, but have a lot of travertine furniture, obviously from the 80s, when this was considered chic. The main...

The Villa Principe Leopoldo is certainly part of the most beautiful place of Switzerland: incredible view, charming building, quiet location and great staff. This is not our first stay on that place and we always enjoy it. For sure, everything is expensive but you are in a real 5 stars hotel, with great facilities and great staff. The hotel is...

Only the Villa should apply. The Villa sits high on the hillside above Lake Lugano with a wonderful view of the lake and this part seems like a 4 star hotel. The...

My family and stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. Our room was fantastic and very roomy. We did have a junior suite with a large living room and bedroom. We were on the main level and had a large patio overlooking the lake. This was the nicest hotel we staying in during our trip to Switzerland and Italy. We...

We were sold on this gorgeous property because of the website, but be warned that the "Residence" is not shown in photos, only the actual "Hotel," which is across the street. Even so, the Residence was beautiful, and our room was incredibly large with a stunning picture window looking out at the pool. The pool was great and a major...

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
