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.

We stayed for just one night at end of May...booked almost last minute via booking.com and got the last double room available which has no lake view but faces a wall. The room is very quiet though. The room is clean and modern, reasonably sized. The bathroom appears to have been recently renovated, however the shower screen door is extremely... More

Finding a reasonable hotel in a Swiss resort place has never been easy, but the Muralto Garni is an exception. It had all I needed, a covered garage right beside the hotel entrance, free wi-fi connection, central location, friendly staff and an excellent breakfast. The beds are comfortable and the place is kept spic and span for you. I had... More

Receptionist very helpful and came and had a look but... More
