We went to Locarno for a short holiday and landed in this hotel. We liked it a lot and therefore we extended our stay for one night more! The room looks like it is from the 70's, but there is lot of space and it is comfortable. The balcony is also huge and has an amazing view over the lake.... More

The hotel is at the perfect location with amazing views and everything is close by. The rooms are huge, however the were decorated in the 70's and nothing nice that changed. But comfortable nevertheless. The pool is also a big plus. There are a few negatives unfortunately: -The staff at the restaurant/bar at the pool are very poor. It is... More

The hotel is on the lake Maggiore shore, with beautiful views of the lake and the surronding montains. The staff is very, very kind and try to do their best. There is a free parking (just a few places!!) and a paying parking. The room was very clean, with good furniture and well equipped. The bed was very good. No... More

I took a friend and her daughter (aged 7) here for a weekend break when they were over from the UK. I booked late and was surprised at the great value, we had a "suite / apartment" given to us on a child-friendly floor. It was a little dated but clean and excellently equipped. The staff at this hotel simply... More

We went to Ramada Hotel Arcadia only for one night, but we liked the place very much. Rooms are big and - if you choose the "deluxe" version - have new furniture. Cleanliness isn't very good. The safe didn't work although it was new. Very confortable drying rack in the bathroom. Third bed (sofa bed) was so tough that sleeping... More

The hotel is perfect situated, 5 minutes to the piazza and the old town. The room was very big, a little bit old-fashend, but clean with a nice view to the lake. The staff is extremly helpfull and the breakfast was perfekt.

We stayed one night in this friendly hotel next to the lake in Locarno. Although everything is a little bit used and tired, our reception was kind and our room spacious and calm. The price of our room was very fair. In our next trip to Locarno we will surely come again. The hotel is a good base to explore... More

The hotel is now under new management and the only person that I recognized was one of the waiters. All the employees at the front desk are new. They are very nice, but I miss the old crowd. Also, there used to be a lavish salad buffet at dinner. That has been discontinued. Now dinner still includes a salad, but... More
