Hotel was 200 meters from Lugano Paradiso and a short 15 minute walk along the lake to the centre. Staff were very friendly and allowed us to leave our luggage after check out.
Pool was dirty and unkept, hotel rooms were very outdated and there was no safe or fridge in the room.
The location was really good. It's close to the lake, the funicular to Mount San Salvatore is right next door and the Paradiso train station is less than five minutes by foot away.
Wi-Fi would have been great and due to the refurbishing of one part of the hotel this place lacks atmosphere though the room itself is quite good if you don't expect it to be fully up to date.
Hotel was okay for price. Nice view of lake from balcony. Room itself clean enough, although quite a moldy smell in corridor outside.
Building site out front which started work around 8:00 am and continued until around 5:00 pm which unfortunately meant we couldn't enjoy the balcony between these times. Together with the lack of air con or even a fan it was difficult to chill out in the room, either literally or metaphorically! More importantly this made it difficult to sleep at night.
Good price Close to the lake and the centre of Lugano
Hotel needs to be renovated No parking available
The spacious room and the balcony.
The lack of equipment and the fact that the rooms are rather old and need renovation.
Although it's not near the main train station and the city center of Lugano - about 15-20 min walk from the hotel, it is almost perfectly located (at least for me), especially for the price I paid. We were with two big bags and we got off the train at 'Lugano Paradiso' train station (just about 4-5 min walk to the hotel). 'Lugano-Paradiso' boat stop was also about 5 min on foot, and the funicular to Monte San Salvatore - only about 1 min from the hotel. To me, that was just perfect. The hotel staff were very nice and helpful. Breakfast was quite diverse and I enjoyed a drink on the balcony in the evening. Although there was no WiFi in our room, I was able to get it in the reception area. No problem with the connection there.
Located a bit far from the city centre if you want to go out and have dinner there or just browse the streets of Lugano. No WiFi in the rooms.
Good price taking into account this is Lugano. Friendly staff.
There were doing some renovation, so lobby & other public areas were a bit messy.
With Callipso Park you get perfect value for money. We stayed there with a group of friends for a weekend, all four rooms were nice and clean, staff was friendly, there was a nice garden with outdoors pool, as well as inside pool but we did not try that. Location was central (15 mins nice walk), very close to the lake (2 mins). We were all very happy with the experience at Callipso Park and would definately recommend it.
The lounge chairs by the outside pool were broken and one of our friends injured her leg. Furniture and facilities were rather old, but you can't expect more for the price.
Location was gud..
Why does a double bed are two single beds joined? How can couple sleep with small baby in centre?
It is a good option for a valué deal. Close to lungo mare
location, ping-pong table, indoor swimmimg pool
parking : 20 CHF per night
Check-in time is flexible; Close to San Salvatore lift; There is a parking near the hotel (not free, but covered and not so expensive)
Too tricky halls :)
1) little balcony was good - 5th floor views were good (shame about the building work on the other building in front!) 2) the LADIES at reception were nice, understood and helped us!
1) no fridge, drinking glasses, kettle, wifi connection in room 2) Male receptionist didn't speak English, was rude and wasted a lot of incoming phone calls by not putting them through! 3) towels were not very good quality (old and frayed?)
The price is not high. The hotel is not far from the lakeside. Have a nice view of lake if your room is high. The room is very clean. The hotel stuff are very friendly and helpful with very clear English speaking.
The condition of the room is not very good. The furniture is a bit old. There is no internet connection in the room and the wifi in the lobby is unstable. I, with my friend, we were not able to connect to the wifi with our ipads.
Wifi in the main lobby downstairs
The photos made the rooms look much nicer than they really were. Very old building under construction. Loud guests disturbing the peace and the bedding was a thin sheet only. Not comfortable and no hot water to take a bath or shower. Towels were not provided. Very disappointed. We booked two nights and when we went down to complain the first night, no one was there to speak to. We left after our first night and the office would not give us a full refund for the second night we did not stay there even though they had plenty of time and notice to book someone else in the room we canceled
Calipso was the cheapest hotel in Lugano. The receptionist was very nice and fluent in many languages!
The hotel is quite old, it would need to be renewed soon. The rooms look old too. For that price I would have expect something in a better shape.
Location Spacious and clean room Big balcony with table and chairs You can play table tennis and board games indoors in case of rain Two swimming pools (indoor/outdoor) Possibility of sauna for 7 CHF
Old TV with just two channels No WIFI in the room
have a swimming pool,near the lake.
bad smell come from the toilet,room is very hot in summer
We liked the closeness to the local station, Lugano Paradiso, which is one stop from the main line station. Also close to the Promenade and the funicular to Monte San Salvatore. We liked the outdoor swimming pool, which was a treat on our return from walking down from Monte San Salvatore. We didn't use the indoor pool this time, as the weather was lovely and warm. We were also within walking distance of the two amazing lidos, where we could eat and drink and watch the kids having a fantastic time jumping from the diving board. Again, the staff were charming and helpful. We loved Lugano and would happily return and stay at the Calipso hotel.
There wasn't anything we disliked. The hotel may be dated but the good location and charming reception staff made up for any short comings.
Location was very good very close to mountain San Salvatore station.
Room was very good,loved the little balcony ,also close to all tourist attractions.
No soap or drinking glasses in room
There is no internet in the rooms.
