“A room without a view”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Courteous persons at the reception; the overall establishment is old and decaying and the patchy maintenance gives it a shabby appearence; the room we were given (at a price of around Euro 100.00) was very basic with the toilet in a small enclave and the basin directly in the room; breakfast, although huge in variety, is made out of a number of low quality products and some remains of the dinner of the previuous night; Rovio is a bit out of hand and the road leading to the hotel is steep; unless you are given a room with a lake view, you can just be happy with its unattractive surroundings.

Room Tip: make sure that the room you are given is properly appointed

I think that Park Hotel can be the perfect and comfortable location for visiting Lugano or other cities and sites in the area. The room was large and clean, I loved the swimming pool too.
A rich breakfast was served and I also enjoyed a drink staying in the wonderful garden-park. The park offers a stunning view of the lake and mountains.
The staff was nice, cheerful and helpful and the check in and out was very friendly. There was also free parking and wifi available for the guests. Everything was great!

Very charming hotel run by the owner. The owner who is in the hotel to welcome the guests and to looks that everything is OK. Good food (every Thursday and Saturday TICINO Buffet - summer only?) and good wine at very reasonable prices.
Don't expect an anonymous 5-star chain-hotel but a family run personal house. Would (will) go anytime again :)

Very friendly staff. You're realy welcome in this hotel.
The garden with swimming pool is a beauty. A perfect place to relax, read a book, etc. with a splendid view on the lake.
Clean rooms with a shower, toilet and refrigerator (!). However we were missing an airo. They need a refreshening.
Perfect breakfast
Dinner until 9 pm is too early during the summer. We loved to stay a bit longer in the garden.
The bar stays open.

Unfortunately we booked one of the last room (according to booking.com) available in this region due to a National Holiday in Switzerland, and the room what we got was terrible, the worst hotel room ever. It was not possible to change the room, which had no air conditioning, and it was almost impossible to sleep in the 28-30 degree in the room. The hotel itself is very outdated, the only think what was changed in this hotel in the last 20 years is the stuff, nothing else. The only positive thing what I can mention is the location, and the park in front of the hotel which is very nice. I would newer choose again this hotel and I cannot recommend!

This hotel and its location was a highlight of our trip. The breakfast was one of the best with a wide variety of choices. The room has a goos size for two people. The bathroom was a little bit small but it didn't not bother us. The hotel is located in a beautiful setting with a breathtaking view of lake Lugano. Strolling through the narrow, small and very old streets of Communa di Rovio was a unbelievable discovery of an old time.

it depends on what you expect.you have to remember your in swtzerland.for the same money you could have a five star hotel in Austria.
if you read all the negatives on websites i have to tend to agree,we encountered all sorts of hic cups.
BUT,for all the problems there were solutions which were dealt with a smile(including an upgrade of room we we asked to pay a very minimal extra.so all in all i think it must be price quality for switzerland well above average and the stunning local scenery and the province of ticino more than made up for the shortcomings of the hotel.it definatly needs a freshening up.but its clean,and thats what counts at the end of the day.

Room Tip: if you ask for economy rooms for two they are really very small,ok for a couple of nights but not fo...
