The muralto have very nice staff who are welcoming. The room was extremely spacious with a nice balcony overlooking the mountains and Locarno. A short walk will find you in the centre of Locarno but the hotel is based ideally on the outskirts for a quick exit. Parking was limited but I stayed on a Sunday so the street was... More

The Garni Muralto is a nice, modern hotel, just a few minutes walk from Locarno town centre. The rooms are well appointed, and even though this is a busy part of town, they are well sound proofed. If you are driving, booking parking in advance is very advisable - they have plenty of spaces but if the hotel is full... More

We have just had 2 nights at this Hotel in a room on the 5th floor with amazing lake views We could not have asked for anything nicer. It is an easy walk to town and there is everything there that you need. Breakfast was good and Reception helpful at all times. We would recommend staying here.

I stayed there for the filmfestival in locarno, for which it is a perfect fit. Eventhough not on locarno ground but in muralto, the city center of locarno is in walking distance. Staff are very friendly and speak several languages and the roooms are clean and well maintained.

Nice small hotel (34 rooms) that was renovated in 2008. It is modern, clean, has covered parking and wifi and breakfast are included. The breakfast offers an assortment of cereal, yogurt, fruit, bread, jams and most things found in a continental breakfast. The staff was friendly and the hotel has a nice location with the water being only a 10-minute... More

Recently stayed at the Hotel Garno Muralto whilst on a 15 day Swiss Rail Pass. The Hotel is easliy accessible from the Railway Station, albeit with an uphill walk. It is, therefore, an easy downhill walk to the Town Centre and the Lake. The decor is fresh and modern. Our room was well appointed and comfortable. As others have said,... More

The Muralto Garni Hotel is a small sympatric hotel, not far from the Centre of Locarno. The railway station and the lake are 5 minutes walk. The road leading to the station is steep, just as a warning for guests arriving by train and intending to carry their luggage to the hotel The rooms are modern, well appointed but rather... More

It is great value for money, good views if your room is on the lake side, clean and pretty modern in design. 2 min slightly uphill walk from the trainstation and 3 min walk to locarno center and the piazza grande or the to embarcation point to go for a nice boatride on the lake to for instance Ascona.
