Dear Andreas_Sonderman Thank you for your honest feedback. We are extremely disturbed by your comments and sorry to read that your stay with us did not live up to your expectations. As discussed during your stay, you booked a stay at Residenza Lago di Lugano (this is the name of our 3 Star property), and not Parco San Marco Lifestyle Beach Resort (our 4 Star Superior Hotel). We carefully double checked again with hotels.com and the difference between the properties seems to be quite clear: Residenza Lago di Lugano is a 3 Star property where you can enjoy a superb location and service at a reasonable price. All the points you are mentioning as a surprise/hidden costs are clearly mentioned on the hotels.com website. In order to avoid any future misunderstanding, we have a suggestion to you and the tripadvisor community members reading this comments: PLEASE CONTACT US DIRECTLY before making your booking or even better: Through our own website we try to give an extensive, explicit and transparent view of our hotels. For all Rooms, Suites and Apartments categories there are pictures, videos and graphic plans, giving all the information needed. It is our sincere hope that you will return so we can provide you with the exceptional experience that our guests have come to expect from us. We would ask that should you consider returning to Lake Lugano, please contact us directly so we may take care of your reservation. Thank you again for your detailed commentary, and we look forward to welcoming you back soon. Your Residenza Team Lago di Lugano

The resort suited our desire for a pleasant hotel base while visiting Lugano area (married couple). We were in the section near the road (which they called Residenza), which is fine... other rooms stretch up the hill in 6-15 room buildings. Room was a large apartment, modern,

directions from train station
Dear roykathy, Thank you for your interest. To arrive by public transportation to our Resort, departing from Lugano Central Station you can take any bus to Lugano Castagnola. The destination name is "Lido". As soon as you get off at "Lido" you will be close to the communal pool. Here you have to change into the blue bus C12 direction Menaggio. The bus stop for the bus C12 is located in Via Campo Marzio (parallel to the municipal swimming pool). The ride takes roughly half an hour. For getting around to places of interest like Lake Como we highly recommend to hire a car or to book a taxi, because the buses are not running very often and not always in time. For further information please do not hesitate to contact us. Best regards, Residenza Lago di Lugano Team
