The family-run Continental Parkhotel is located 220 yards south of the main train station of Lugano, where the funicular leaves regularly for the center of the city.

This original hotel in the “Fabulous Fifties” look is centrally located, 2 miles from the lake and from central Lugano, and one mile from the Lugano-North highway exit.
Score from 409 reviews Good
It is too noisy since the hotel is near the road. It is no security for keeping the room key since the key is not keep by the reception.
Great location so close to train station and handy restaurant with excellent food across the road.
1. the location was close to the railway station and buses. it is within a short walking distance to the lake and town. 2. breakfast was up to expectation.
Good value, nice staff were very helpful. Rooms were spacious and clean.
Only 10 minute walk from train station. In the heart of old town. Great breakfast too.
a little noisy on main road
The hotel was located very near to the main train station and the city centre, so it was quite convenient.
Our room was facing the streets so it was rather noisy at night when the vehicles drove by, especially motorbikes.
The staff was very friendly and helpful even though there was a mix-up with my booking that we were responsible for.
Very small lift--almost hilarious with all our bags and the 2 of us in it! The stairs up to the reception desk are a bit tough with luggage to carry.
Location is good enough, it is 10 min. Walk from the city center. Free parking.
1. Smell of cigarette smoke all over the room. 2. The bed was pretty short for my height, and I'm not that tall.+ huge ancient, feather pillows that make the bed even shorter. 3. One tiny blanket which is good for a single, not for a couple. 4. Water in the bathroom drains slowly. I would never recommend this place to anyone. Very bad experience. Thanks God it was one night stay only. I barely slept.
The style of the rooms to old
Very convenient location next to train station, and a short walk to lakeside and shops.
The breakfast was a bit basic compared to others we stayed at on this trip.
Location and value for money
Bathroom Car Park ?
Furniture more than likely belong to Henry the Eight. Needs to throw all away and put in decent furniture for the amount of money we pay. Parking it's good but to go in and out either if it's sunny or rainy someone have to literally go himself the reception to open the gate. No communication system.
Very friendly and helpfull staff! Nice bathroom with a bathtub. We didn't have to leave the key when we went out.
No showercurtain and nowhere for the water on the floor to go. So if you have a room with a bathtub. Shower lying down. Bad coffee and fruit for breakfast.
The hotel is very close to the station. We were worried it would be too noisy based on people's review. We got a room not in the busy-street side, so it turned out quiet and has a bit mountain and lake view. Can't hear a bit when people talking in the corridor, but it's not a big deal.
Everything was good.
Choice and quality of breakfast fruit poor.
Good location close to downtown sights and resturants
Expensive for an overnight stay
- Upon request, we got a quiet room looking to the backyard - Toilet was very spacious and confortable - Located very close to the train station, but not on the city center side
- Breakfast was of poor quality considering the price and the bad coffee (no espresso machine); breakfast was served in a small, crowded room.
Noicy on the street
very basic hotel near train station.
not much for the money
Just few steps away from the train station. Clean rooms and bathroom
No safe in room, staff asks to leave a key in the hall area on the board, which is widely accessible.
Close to train station and nice breakfast.
It was perfect! Close to the city, nice breakfast, good beds, clean, free parking. Very hospitable staff. Except see what we didn't like...
Their location is on a busy road, also during the evening and night. The first night in a room on the street side you have to get used to it, the second night the noise bothers you less. But it is still there. But apart from this we recommend the hotel.
