We are traveling Europe for about a month now, and we came across this place, great hospitality, very friendly (even left us a key so that we could check in after 10pm), great beds - seriously the best we had so far, and a very good and fresh breakfast consisting of homemade jams, fresh baked breads and good variety of...

However, I am not sure if it is mentioned that bathroom and toiletts are shared for the whole floor. Thus it is not actually a good value for money and a bit overpriced for what they offer. But service overall is very nice

We stayed there for the second time and for the weekend. The hotel is up the hill and above the city of Locarno... hence, you havae a great view over whole area (lake, city and mountains). The rooms are small but nice and the staff of the hotel is pleased to help. We will stay there again as we will... More

This was a fun adventure finding the B&B and experiencing one of our best meals during our trip at a near by restaurant which the manager recommended. The room was clean and the bathrooms very accessible. We just wish we'd had spent more than one night there so we could have explored the area more.

Reserve room 10 at the top of the stairs and be rewarded with magnificent views of Locarno and the lake. A quick funicular ride downtown is only a brisk walk away. Hosts are very friendly and speak good English.

We stayed in this hotel for a romantic weekend and it fully met our expectations. Calm and sunny balcony with the town and lake under our feet. Comfortable, clean, beautifully decorated, amazing views to the lake, very friendly staff and nice fresh breakfast. We took our dog with us and the owners made it very easy to accommodate him, which... More

Great views, wonderful breakfast, stayed here last December and had the place to ourselves. Wish we had more than one day to spend at this amazing location. Awoke to a view of pink skies outside our window. Would be our first choice if we return to Locarno!!

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in August and would definitely recommend this hotel. Lake views from our top floor room balcony were gorgeous, worth lugging our suitcases up 5 flights of stairs. We opted for a room with a private shower and sink (extra $25/night), but toilet was shared. This wasn’t a problem because there were... More

We had a lovely time at this hotel. The couple that runs the place were extremely friendly and helpful. The room was spotless with hot shower and a bathtub as well. We took the room with the balcony which had a good view but we didn't use the balcony much as it was extremely cold. The restaurant offers great views... More

I booked the hotel with a friend during Locarno film festival and we were both absolutely happy. Breakfast: excellent with fresh bread and a good choice of cheese/ meet. Location: 5min away from furnicular that runs every 15min from the Locarno train station and takes just 5min to get up. However, there are also stairs leading straight to the city... More
