Our history


The first generation of the name Huber connected with the hotel Lido Seegarten dates back to 1918/20 with the arrival in Lugano of the engineer Rudolf Huber and his wife Rosa Huber Sohm. Originally from Basel, they immediately fell in love with the shores of the lake and started the Seegarten guesthouse there.

The second generation continued under the management of the eldest son Max Huber and his wife Marta Huber von Allmen until 1991, exclusively on a seasonal basis. Over the years, a swimming pool by the lake was also built.

Since 1991, his nephew Marco Huber and wife Simona Franscini Huber began their ownership of the hotel and carried out a total renovation of the building, achieving a change of category from 3 to 4 stars.

Hotel Lugano Lido Seegarten History 076


At the dawn of its 100 years, the hotel has undergone several transformations and modernisations. The passion for the profession and the good fortune of having a son, Francesco Huber, also a young hotelier, still motivates us to invest in new projects and to keep up to date with the wishes of our guests, as well as to continue the tradition of the family hotel.
