This is an outstanding hotel, about 350metres from the railway station and the Funicular that services downtown. It lives up to all its positive reviews. Our room was in the recently renovated Main building and was comfortable, airconditioned , had a small refrigerator, twin beds, and an excellent bathroom. The staff are charming and helpful. There is a lift to...

Stayed at this hotel September 2011. It is a 3 minute walk from the train station. When you come out of the train station take a right to get to the hotel. There won't be any signs. This hotel is really nice inside. We had two rooms. One room had a great view of Lake Lugano, Monte Bre, Monte San...

When we arrived, we were given a complimentary upgrade, to a suite, which was a large, very luxurious room with two balconies, one of which overlooked Lake Lugano. The bathroom was also quite large, with a roomy shower stall and a Jacuzzi tub. A welcoming basket of fruit and chocolates lasted almost our entire stay. Nicole, at the front desk,...

We stayed at this hotel for 11 nights in September. We were very grateful that the air con was working as the day time temperatures were inthe high 20c. However due to the train noise, as other reviewers have mentioned, with the windows closed the room became very hot during the night. Allhough the air con was good it was...

The hotel is a wonderful 100+ years old hotel that has been in the same family from the start. It was entirely renovated in the past few years in order to regain its original beauty. There is a nice swimming-pool in the lovely park, full of flowers, bushes and palm trees, plenty of lounge chairs and a bar by the...

We stayed in the main build which has been beautifuly restored. Our room was good but our 'double' bed did separate during the night (two singles). The view from our shared balcony was stunning. Even though the hotel is next to the train station we were not disturbed at all. The pool area is great and we had a wonderful...

We had a superior room on the top floor of the main building, it was clean and spacious, good sized bathroom, had a view of the lake, had a shared balcony and with the windows closed you could barely hear the railway traffic outside. The hotel has an elegance of an era gone by, and has been modernised and maintained...

I stayed in the Continental for one weekend night, and I found it surprisingly good for a three-star hotel. It is located near the Lugano train station, and it is either a ten minutes walk to the lake and city center, or you can take a cute funicular from the train station. The hotel consists of a couple of buildings...
