We stayed at Hotel Elvetico recently for one night. The hotel is reasonably priced, and located within walking distance from the center of town. The rooms are basic, but clean. Good value for money. Breakfast above average too.

The hotel has comfortable beds, is very clean and run by a caring friendly couple. The food in the restaurant is well prepared and delicious and the cook/husband/manager will take the time to explain the dishes that are available in one of the many languages he speaks. The wife/ manager is happy to recommend sights in the Locarno area. They... More
