Hospitality & design

With its soaring features, the Hospitality & design Hotel City Lugano, which was designed by renowned architects Giampiero and Guya Camponovo, slots perfectly into the urban scenery, just a short distance away from the university campus.

The lobby welcomes guests with its elegant reception desk and the lively colours of the inviting armchairs designed by Arne Jacobsen. The bar is situated on the way to the breakfast corner and the terrace. In this open space, visitors can freely choose between a coffee, a snack or, in good weather, a relaxing drink in the open air.


Sustainability is an important aspect for us and an added value for our guests.Attention to the environment, awareness and implementation of specific measures, changes in small gestures and established habits make our guests' stay more and more eco-friendly and engaging.In close cooperation with Switzerland Tourism, we participate in the Swisstainable sustainability programme and have been accredited with Level I.

Thank you for supporting us in this project.
