Perfect for Families & Children
Its unique features, location and services make the Splendide Royal in Lugano, Switzerland, a proper family hotel. This is a hotel that is particularly recommended for couples with children who are looking for accommodation that can guarantee relaxation, comfort and proximity to local places of interest. Above all, the Splendide Hotel is ideal because it guarantees a wide range of high profile services and amenities in a hotel that is both welcoming and elegant.
This is a 5 Star hotel where you can choose rooms or a suite that are modern, spacious, light and airy and have spectacular views over Lake Lugano. The rooms are perfect for children who will really appreciate the space they will have to play in as well as the hotel’s amenities which include cable TV with pay-per-view. For children up to the age of 2, the hotel can provide a cot free of charge. Comfortable, as well as refined, is the hotel restaurant “I Due Sud”, which will enable you to eat inside the hotel itself for both lunch and dinner with tasty, typical dishes that are created from local high-quality produce which ensures that every dish is freshly prepared.
What also makes the hotel perfect for families is its location. It is close to a variety of places that children should find entertaining, to say the least. Within a few steps, you will find yourselves in the city centre where you can take the special small tourist train known as the Freccia Rossa which will take you on a tour of discovery around the town. It leaves about every 45 minutes from Piazza Manzoni and is ideal for seeing the city and the lakeside from a different perspective.
You can “park” your children’s strollers comfortably on board the train. But, a holiday with children isn’t a real holiday without a park. The park that we recommend that you visit is located to the south east of the old town. It is called the Ciani park which covers 63,000 square metres and is bordered by the lake. Inside the park there are wonderful trees, shrubs and flowers as well as a play area and the municipal library. Of course, Lugano is also all about nature. During the summer months, it is possible to swim in water that is perfect for children because the shore is on a very gradual slope into the water. The little ones will probably also enjoy a ride on the funicular up Monte Brè or to the summit of San Salvatore. Although it is not in the centre of town, if you are visiting Lugano with children, we would strongly recommend a visit to the Alprose chocolate factory!
