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

I can't begin to tell you how beautiful the views were from the balcony of my hotel room. And how much I loved the room itself. With a kitchen, living room, and separate bedroom, this place was bigger than my own apartment! It was very clean and had very chic, modern design. It was also very close to the train... More

We booked the suite for 4. The Appt itself is quiet big with all the utensils. It is near by station (5mins walk) careful it's comes under Maraini parco, they have same entry so don't miss it. This hotel shares a compound with elderly home/senior living. So don't get surprise if you see old people hanging around. It's in a... More

This was a stopover for us en route to Italy. Huge apartment, clean and airy. Set in a nice park above the town. No time to explore but would stay again. Lots of room for families. A better option than being squished into a small hotel room. Nice kitchenette fully equipped. Secure underground parking and we didn't get charged for... More

Mariani Resort is a hidden gem- do not stay anywhere else! The location is very accessible to the train station (a quick and easy walk up the hill, less than 1/2 mile) and the funicular to the city center (also located at the train station). The condo is gorgeous and includes a king sized bed, free wi-fi, and an absolutely... More

Myself & my husband stayed here for 3 nights as we were invited to a wedding. We were both very impressed by the quality & standard of our room. Superb views overlooking the lake & a very quiet place indeed. We would stay here again. My only issue was getting back into the resort after the wedding late at night... More

I stayed in this place for 3 weeks with 1 year old baby during August. The apartment itself is quite comfortable, specious room sand nice view. That's is the only advntage of this place. If you come for a few nights- no problem, but to have long vacation it is definitely not the right place to visit. You would think... More

We absolutely loved the views from our balcony, as well as the spaciousness and convenience of having an apartment. If you are looking for a quiet retreat above the hustle and bustle of Lugano, this is it! We took the train and walked (about 10 min.). When you exit the train station, get on the #4 bus 1 or 2...
