    Beautiful view, good location near center but not in the middle of it.Our room was very bright and modern, plenty of space, with a terrace. The front desk started out a little snippy but later became very helpful and professional, although somewhat disengaged. The staff was friendly.

    The restaurant was fine at breakfast-very good service. However, dinner was not so pleasant. The food was good, but dinner was served only from 7-8:30PM and the day we ate in the restaurant we arrived at 7:50 and well before 8:30 the waiters were closing up, noisily, putting out breakfast dishes, and there was a lot of kitchen clatter, although we were not seated near the kitchen. So dinner in the hotel is not recommended. It felt very rushed.

    A gorgeous old upmarket hotel in a gorgeous lakeside location. Turn the clock back a hundred years to when style and elegance really counted. Wonderful breakfasts - and one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in.

    It was a splurge on our part to stay here. Not within the normal budget of a lot of travellers. Worth it if it doesn't break the bank.

    I stayed there several days. Very nice hotel in beautiful surroundings, the location is excellent: just a few steps to the lake. Friendly and very helpful staff. Very good breakfast. A nice bar, too :)

    No tea/coffee amenities, no minibar in the rooms - but this is the hotel policy, as they say.

    1. The staff were all very nice and helpful, so I don't like downgrading the hotel. 2. The bed was comfortable. 3. The breakfast is very nice. 4. We had dinner at the hotel one night, and everything was very nice. The dining room is elegant, and the waiters and maître d' were all helpful and attentive. Food was also very good, and the price was quite reasonable. 5. The ambience of the hotel is pleasant, with elegant and comfortable sitting rooms, and beautiful artwork throughout

    1' The location was too far from restaurants and tourist things like the little tour train and the lake boats. These were at Piazza Manzoni about an 8 minute walk from the hotel. If I visited Lugano again, I would stay in a hotel closer Piazza Manzoni. 2. Lugano itself, is too big a city, and does not have the tourist charm of the nearby Lake Como towns, While that is not the fault of Hotel au Lac, it does affect my rating. 3. The newly renovated room had a number of design flaws that were a problem. The bathroom had a translucent sliding door, so that the bedroom was flooded with light if anyone used the bathroom at night. The door should be replaced, or at least painted with opaque paint. The lighting system was very confusing, and often we couldn't turn on one light without turning on all of them. There was a ledge behind the bathroom sink which we put our toiletries on, but it placed the mirror too far from my face when shaving.

    Location was excellent Parking in the hotel excellent as it would be impossible to park in the street. There is a public underground car park near by but don't know what the rate are. Good breakfast and facilities at the hotel ie swimming pool lounge area, typical of an old style hotel.

    The bed was so hard impossible to sleep. May as well slept on the concrete floor. Shower was in the bath, fairly typical, but this was a deep bath and difficult to get in and out of. No facilities in the room ie bar fridge, tea or coffee, glasses etc. also could hear noise form room next door. unfortunately could not recommend this hotel because of the bed and we are fairly easy going.

    The comfortable rooms, view was spectacular from balcony, shower felt like I was in a rain forest rain shower! Beds were so comfortable, sound proof walls, never heard a soul! The breakfast was perfect every morning and staff were always helpful and polite. They helped store our bags for one last day until we had to leave; supplied us with an umbrella, and laundry service!

    There was some construction going on next door that made the view sitting on the balcony a bit noisy; but nothing to really complain about.

    hotel is right across the road from the lake and is close to the shops, restaurants in Lugano

    Getting to the hotel could be more apparent on the bookings.com site - I dragged luggage down a lot of steps instead of taking the funicular.

    This hotel is still in the same family after many years and it shows in the personal pride taken by the staff. They have retained lots of mementoes of the past and there are original artworks on the walls. Views of the lake are fantastic and it is only a few minutes walk from the Piazza della Riforma around which many of the restaurants are concentrated.

    The decor and fixtures are showing their age in places, although this mostly just adds to the charm.
