Originally built in 1880 as the winter residence for Russian nobility, the Von Ritters family and turned into a hotel five years later. It remains an institution with many of the guests who return year after year to soak up the magical views across Lake Lugano. Many of the guest rooms were last overhauled in the 1980s. The hotel often hosts interesting art exhibitions and its restaurant has a commanding reputation. The hotel in the area in the five-star superior category.

I have not stayed here but have spent some time walking through the lobby and dining areas. This hotel compares favorably to any of Stresa's grand hotels. I would be amazed if any other hotel in Lugano compares to its Old World luxury. The staff I came in contact with displayed class but not snobbishness.
