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

Modern type hotel, 1970 bland architecture, but on the lakeshore and near Piazza Grande. Room with large balcony and a lovely view of Lake Maggiore. The furnishings a bit outdated but clean & tidy. The breakfast buffet was included and was plentiful. Staff, very friendly and helpful. Hotel offered free use of bicycles which we used for a ride on... More

Dear guest We thank you for your constructive review. We have different types of rooms, hence the price variation. Our service bar / restaurant starts at 06:30 and ends at 22:00, sometimes, 15:30 to 17:30 since we hardly have guests in the house (most guests go on trips to discover the beautiful Ticino) is Bar service taken by the front...

Location is good in front of lake Maggiore. Rooms are spacious but with poor cooling and little foul smelling, as may be open after some time. Staff is less and service is slow. Breakfast was poor , there was very little choice for vegetarians, even failed to serve hot tea. We were on European Holidays tour of Thomas Cook India... More
