Lugano is a beautiful city on the lake. If you want a hotel that is convenient to the train station, this is the place for you. The hotel is located on the hill above the station, it is all of a 5 minute walk. The train can be noisy if you sleep with your windows open, but not a problem otherwise. The views from the rooms are of the town and the lake. You can sit on the terrace outside of your room and enjoy the lake and the snow capped mountains.
It is a steep walk up and down the hill to the center of town and the lake, but it is only a 10 - 15 minute walk and there is funicular if you're not up for it which is really fun and only about a franc to ride.
We stayed here 3 different times over the course of 2 weeks and each time we stayed, our room was upgraded. We were in 3 totally different rooms, but all were clean, roomy and comfortable. the bathrooms appeared to be recently upgraded and were very nice. We found it interesting that each room was so different in layout and set up, but we appreciated the staff's thoughfulness in upgrading us and we liked each room we stayed in. The room on the 4th floor was the best - it was considered one of their premier rooms and was definitely a couple of notches above the other rooms we stayed in.
The breakfast was average as compared to the others we had on this trip, but it had everything you needed, eggs, yogurt, fruit, cheese, sausages, pastries, cereal. The hotel has a restaurant and bar, neither of which we tried. It was not swimming weather when we were there, but the pool out back was beautiful and inviting.
Would definitely recommend the Continental Park Hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 4th floor overlooking the lake. Beautiful.

This hotel has been by far the best overall experience in a long time. The fact that is family run I am sure has its influence, and we definitely appreciated the level of service as well as the free room upgrade upon arrival.
The staff are very friendly and most speak 3 or 4 languages.
The recently renovated rooms are clean, modern and extremely comfortable. The option of TV channels and excellent wifi service made a rainy afternoon pass away almost unnoticed.
The moderately priced restaurant (compared to all other restaurants in town!) turned out to be our refuge in the evenings, and had us coming back for more because of the excellent food served.
The location is great just on top of the hill and near the town centre but with easy acccess to the roads leading out of Lugano.
In fact, our stay was so good that we are planning to go back again. Next time we hope to go during the warmer months and enjoy the pool and gardens too.

If anyone is planning to visit Lugano, Continental Parkhotel is an excellent location. The hotel has character and the room we stayed was very well situated with a stunning view of the lake. Very friendly and polite staff. We were lucky to be upgraded. I will stay again if I go back to Lugano.

This hotel has a great location. Parking right in the front of the hotel and at the back too. Thanks to the reception for an upgrade to superior room, lake view was stunning. Despite the fact that the train station is very close noise was not an issue thanks to new (and efficient) windows. Room was clean. Mattress needs replacement. Breakfast was a disappointment. No fruit and no vegetables whatsoever. Both times we came there were just eggs' left overs. The reception staff was very kind to lend us a socket connector (the Italian sockets are narrow). The weather and the view made up for those small things.
