Hotel Admiral Lugano is set in a small town with a very “heavenly” name, Paradiso, which translates exactly as “Heaven”, a short walk from the beautiful shores of Lugano Lake and the funicular railway station of Mount San Salvatore, surrounded by the beautiful nature of Ticino. The hotel is open all the year round and is the perfect accommodation for your holidays in Switzerland and the perfect solution for your business trips.

In 2016 refurbishment began on our 4-star hotel : the rooms and common areas have been transformed to a high standard, and designed in a modern style allowing for all essential modern comforts.


All the guests at Hotel Admiral can relax their body and mind taking advantage of our free wellness facilities. Whether you have enjoyed a day out walking, shopping or sight-seeing, we are delighted to offer our guests an indoor heated swimming pool and an outdoor swimming pool open in summer, the latter located on the rooftop terrace with a panoramic view of the city, the skyline and the beautiful mountains that surround the lake.

Other amenities include the brand-new bar service next to the pool on the rooftop terrace, to make your stay even more relaxing.

We know that it is important for our guests to stay connected to the world: a fast and secure Wi-Fi Internet access is available for free, 24/24, in all the rooms and hotel public areas.
