Hotel International au Lac

Lugano, Switzerland

This century-old, family-run hotel, set on the lakefront in the heart of Lugano, has a nice old-world feel to it. It’s listed by UNESCO as a historical building. Guest rooms are spotlessly clean (remember, this is Switzerland), and there’s an inviting garden area with a swimming pool and terrace. The friendly and courteous staff takes great delight in making guests feel at home.
