Continental Parkhotel

Reviewed 19 April 2011

We were upgraded on arrival to a spacious well appointed and attractive room on the third floor with a small balcony. The bathroom was equally spacious with the full range of facilities (no bidet) including a spa bath.
Reception was welcoming and informative and on subsequent visits proved friendly and committed to resolving our queries. Although based in Italian speaking Ticino, the majority of guests were German and many of the staff were, equally, natural German speakers. On each night, two tour buses arrived but they ate in a separate dining area and were not an issue to other residents.
Breakfast was a wholesome affair in a spacious bright room well serviced by staff. The buffet was European style but included hot dishes with bacon, sausage and scrambled eggs but we found the selection of cereals, breads, pastries, yoghurt, cheese and cold meats, etc more than adequate. A variety of fresh fruit was also available. There is a popular cozy pub on the ground floor offering full bar service together with tea and coffee during the day.
The hotel is situated close to the station - easy walking distance with bags - and above the main town and lakeside but is serviced by a frequent funicular from the station to the historic centre. We found it pleasant to walk down to town and catch the funicular back uphill. There is a Malpensa express coach service from a stop adjacent to the station.
Proximity to the station and resultant train noise was a concern which proved unfounded with excellent double glazing and a good aircon.
This is a professional operation in well decorated and elegant surroundings with attractive furnishings and fittings. We enjoyed our stay and would return.

We stayed at the Continental Parkhotel last week and we had a great experience. The hotel is a easy walk from the train station - less than 5 minutes. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the room although a little on the small size was very clean and nice and the breakfast buffet was wonderful. We had a room overlooking the lake and mountains - it was beautiful. The only possible downsize was the sound of the trains going by BUT otherwise it was a great hotel for a great price. When we go back to beautiful Lugano - we will stay there again.

Wonderful old building, fully refurbished, making you feel like staying in a big villa or even a castle. Professional staff, extremely clean, with very nice park-like surroundings. Rooms are big and comfortable. Generally, staying in this hotel added so much to our overall positive experience in Lugano! On the not so positive side, I'd mention a cheaper room furniture, but still brand new. Also, I'm not sure if it may be noisy as the hotel is close to Lugano railway station (our room faced the opposite, park side).

I really enjoyed the hotel. not luxurious or posh, but very clean, very big rooms, no nonsense simple, efficient service. proximity to the station does not mean noisy rooms. great view from the lake in the room. great value for money!if i have to go back to lugano will stay there again.

This was a nice hotel. We had a balcony that had a water slice view. Very pretty. Ikea furniture but still nice. Nice breakfast buffet. Very close to train station. Parking on site. All and all a good option. I only stayed a few nights.
