“Very dated Hotel”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

Originally booked here for 2 nights but having been given an apartment that smelled of damp we complained and were given a. "Comfort" room but decided to move on the next morning. The hotel was probably a good hotel about 15 to 20 years ago but now it's a crumbling, unkempt and dated establishment with an eclectic collection of rooms with no real flow.

The dining room in particular was dirty and doesn't seem to have been dusted for a long time. Plant boxes used in there were almost triffid like and we saw at least 3 tables with couples having about a third of their tables being occupied by overhanging plants.

There was no bar as such but the largest outdoor, plastic covered , seating area with no real use apart from it being used as a smoking area.

The hotel did have two saving graces, the evening meal was good albeit pricey and if as much attention was paid to the upkeep of the hotel as that of the garden ( it was beautiful ) they would have an excellent hotel.

Why would you want to see the owner at breakfast cooking bacon and omelette in the kitchen in his suit? Unhygienic ? Does he have a food hygiene certificate? That did it for us! Don't waste your hard earned
cash! Certainly don't be tempted by the fitness suite! It was a joke.

Simply excellent place for relaxing.
The garden of the hotel is a very pleasant place for relaxing and spending some good time.
The pool is something which you exactly need in the morning or after taking some sun in the garden.
The views over the lake Lugano are wonderful.

Staff very helpful and willing to please clients, good size room,we didn't have lake view but not an issue for us as we spend very little time in the room as the surroundings are breathtaking! We had an excellent time at Rovio! Thank you

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.
