Pros: - the largest apartment you can imagine for such a good price - 10 min walk from the train station or 2 min from the bus stop (perfect location if you are to frequent the train services - beautiful entrance to the park inside the gated complex, makes you feel very safe. This is more of a complex of... More

Maraini Resort has spacious rooms. Ours' had a bedroom, living area with sleeping couch, and kitchenette. Large windows and glass doors lead to balcony with views of Lake Lugano. A restaurant in the main building is a bit pricey. There is an indoor pool that belongs to the resort which can be used by guests. The setting is a bit... More

Cannot believe what we fell into. Saturday arrival to be avoided? No lighting of any kind was provided in the living area, and we were asked to wait until Sunday morning for a lamp. When I said that we would really like to use the room, a lamp was magically found..with a blown light bulb. When I called the office,... More

Very large, nice and newly renovated room with balcony, fully equipped kitchenette and nice bathroom. The location was fairly convenient for exploring Lugano, though we didn't have much of a lake view from our room or balcony. Located in a park-like setting. The two negatives were the price of breakfast (CHF 18/person/day) and the deplorably bad WiFi connection. Parking was... More

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
