The hotel (not the residence) is nice, the breakfast is great and rooms are big enough. The problem is that, now that the station is under rebuild or during night, you have to walk up a lot to get to the hotel as it is about 1km to downtown up to a road not for everyone! With car, not problem!

Beautifully maintained historic building and grounds; modern and clean rooms with sleekly renovated bathrooms. A balcony was a lovely touch and pleasant surprise for a budget-friendly solo room. The breakfast buffet was excellent and can be your main meal of the day if traveling on a budget. Staff is very friendly and helpful with recommendations, speaks excellent English. The location...

Great hotel - large rooms, beautiful garden with a big swimming pool, play area for children, friendly staff, generous breakfast buffet, tasty food in the hotel restaurant (dinner). Tip - if you look for silence, ask for a room not facing the railway.

We had a fantastic 2 day stay at the hotel. We had a superior twin and prestige room. It is true that the hotel is close to the tracks and yes you can hear the train (despite the excellent soundproofing). But it never bothered us at all. My 2 year old daughter slept with no difficulty. The frequency of the... More

We had pre booked the 'balcony with garden view' room and arrived by train. We knew the hotel was close but a surprise to be able to see it from the station. This hotel was built in the 1880 period to capture the visitors traveling by train through the new Gotthard rail link...it is still doing this! A major refurbishment... More

I stayed at the Continental Parkhotel for a week, intending to catch up on work and enjoy Lugano a bit. Check-in was friendly and efficient, the first impression of the room was nice, clean and spacious. A bowl of fruit was provided, but no water (and no glasses in the room) The first 2 days, WiFi was unreliable and slow,... More

A lovely, stately old hotel from the golden era of travel, renovated to be compatible with modern needs. Gorgeous grounds and gardens, overflowing with palm trees young and old, and a lovely wine-press garden outbuilding for events that I would love to put to use! It has a sunny pool with a bar and a green lawn surrounding it, above... More

This hotel was booked as we were coming off the Bernina Express bus to travel on the Wilheim Tell Express the next day and needed somewhere convenient to the station on arrival and for early departure. It is indeed close to the station albeit a short taxi ride and whilst there was some rail noise in the morning it was... More

Wonderful place to stay. We had a room at the top-floor. Magnificient view over the lake, town and mountains - even from the jacuzzi. Only a small stroll away from the citycenter and the lake. Excellent service. The staff very helpful and kind. Breakfast excellent too. In connection there is a garden with palmtrees and a large pool. Lots of... More

Super location high up with view of the lake. The hotel is renovated and it is functioning very well. Staff is very kind and attentive. We had room 71 on the 4th floor. The room was huge and with a walk in closet room. Sitting arrangements, fantastic bed and there was a Spa in the room with view over the... More
