Very large, nice and newly renovated room with balcony, fully equipped kitchenette and nice bathroom. The location was fairly convenient for exploring Lugano, though we didn't have much of a lake view from our room or balcony. Located in a park-like setting. The two negatives were the price of breakfast (CHF 18/person/day) and the deplorably bad WiFi connection. Parking was... More

Dear guest, we are glad to know you like our apartments and thank you for your kind review!

Therefore, we are planning to add a new Wi-fi system to the next hotel renovation plan. In addition,... More

We stayed in the apartments at the side of the main hotel. We arrived slightly late around 8pm so had a very brief run down of things like use of the pool, car parking, etc as the reception shut at 8pm. This caused a few problems as it wasnt clear on how the car parking token worked and we had... More

I booked this hotel in Lugano because it was a good deal less than the traditional hotels in Lugano. The price was right, but it is not really a resort. I'm sure that you've read previous reviews that these are actually apartments within a nursing home/retirement community. Don't be put off by that. We would not have even known this... More

We came to Lugano by buss from the Malpensa airport and took taxi from the station to the hotel, but there was no need to do it, because the hotel is only 5 (or less) minutes aways from the station by walk. We came at 10 p.m. and the reception was closed, so they left the key in the box... More

The Maraini complex is a little odd, being part hotel and part clinic, but I thought the advantages well outweighed the peculiarities. In any case, it means it has good facilities including its own grounds and a pool, and is quiet. There is no getting away from the fact that Lugano is hilly and the Maraini resort is at the... More

Let me start by saying we were not given any instructions for how to check in on Sunday. Maraini Resort is located in a complex of many buildings-a retirement community. We arrived and walked around the compound for a while before asking a waitress who ended up "checking in" for us. Turns out there was no one at the front... More

The resort is easy to reach by car and by train though not necessarily easy to find. Walking distance to the city is less then 1 km, partially alongside one of the busy roads in town and as the resort is placed in the upper part of the city - as the main station is - the way back from... More

Stayed here for two nights last week. The apartments are enormous, the views are stunning and there is a good gym and swimming pool. It is only a ten minute walk to the station and the walk into town is easy. The walk back is harder (uphill), but there's always the funicular. Can thoroughly recommend.
