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.

We stayed for 3 nights at Maraini Resort the views from our room of the lake were spectacular and even though the mountains were capped in snow the weather in mid December was perfect for enjoying local wine and produce from the balcony! The room was well appointed and there was ample space for a family of 4. Cooking facilities... More

Stayed there for 3 weeks and have to say it's OK. The apartments are pretty sapcious which is nice but on the other hand, they look a bit "empty" at the same time. There is a sleeping couch which is not really for sitting and far too far away from the television, a couch table which is to small and... More

The room was very nice: spacious, clean, comfortable, cosy with a very nice view on the lake. The breakfast could have more choices but probably it was ok for Swiss tradition. The only thing we found a bit embarrassing is the fact that this is a hotel and clinic at the same time. As a result a lot of elderly... More
