Where to stay in Lugano

Picturesque Lugano is known for its deep blue bay and the palm tree-lined waterfront promenade--so it only makes sense to stay close to the heart of the city, the lake. Surrounding the bay are a number of mid-range to high-priced hotels and quaint bed and breakfasts. With such an emphasis on the lake, most of the high-rise hotels have arranged their rooms and balconies in such a way that everyone has a lake view. These waterfront hotels put Lugano a step above its neighboring contenders, outbidding them in style, natural beauty, and sophistication.
