We had booked a superior top room for 9 nights for our vacation in Lugano. Without asking and without any extra charges the hotel gave us a prestige room on the 4th floor with the most beautiful lake view. The room was spacious (30-40m2) and had lots of storage space & a free safe & a fridge for you own... More

Great location to trains and tram . 1 complaint pool is shared and quite busy by hostel guests next door. Not very relaxing . Would stay again when visiting Lugano . Would recommend seeing the lake by boat .

We stayed at Continental Parkhotel for two nights and it was a worthy stay. First, we got a free upgrade to the big room with two balconies, so we were able to enjoy both a lake&mountain view and a park view. The hotel itself is located in the middle of the big park, next to the vineyard, which itself is... More

Lugano is very hilly so I stayed here because the hotel is located next door to the train station and so you don't need a taxi and neither are u dragging bags up or down hills...With the exception of the short hill from the hotels front gate to the front door. Exit train station and turn right and the hotel... More

Cozy splendid hotel with history! We had nice room on top floor in the main building facing the lake. Breathtaking view, so when we woke up in the morning we turned around 90 degrees in bed to enjoy magnificent sunrise thru the balcony door whir in bed. Room is modern, new linen. Nice garden (with private villas, I guess) and... More

This is a small hotel right next to Lugano train station. View of the lake is nice. Beautiful garden and outdoor pool. Room was soundproof so the proximity to the train station was not issue. Room size was on the smaller size but this can be expected in Europe. Other than that, it was perfect - clean and comfortable. Breakfast... More

As we came into Lugano by train - being situated right by the station made it very convenient to get around, whether by bus, funicular or by walking 7 minutes to the town centre. Elegantly appointed it harkens to a classic era. High ceilings and all the creature comforts that appeals to Europeans and North Americans alike. Similar in feel... More

Very nice hotel with good service and a high standard in the room, including great internet access by wifi. A pretty good breakfast buffet, but only very small plates are available - is this a way to stop people overeating?

The hotel is just walking distance from the railway station and very near to the ropeway cum tram that takes you down to the city centre/ lake lugano. The staff is not too friendly and the rooms are small. Overall an average hotel to stay at
