We stayed in this hotel during a weekend and it was quite busy. The location is great, close to the center, uphill in Locarno, away from the busy lake area. The staff is very friendly and professional. The hotel is an old property that has been converted into a hotel. The result is very nice, a mixture between modern furniture... More

We found great difficulty finding the hotel situated up a very narrow road but which opened into a good free car park. Our room was minimalistic and spotless having a small balcony overlooking the neighbouring attractive garden. Dinner was superb and served impeccably with an amuse bouche as well as a surprise sweet to finish. Truly fine dining. The joint... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and we had a great stay. Will come back next time. This a bit expensive for a 3 star but well worth the money when you consider location, service, rooms and food. Highly recommended

One of the nicest small hotels I have ever stayed at. The charming old building was recently renovated, and it looks absolutely beautiful. I spent a long time just walking around its premises and taking pictures. The rooms were just as nice, clean and well appointed, but with no A/C though. The breakfast was spectacular - food selection, service, and... More

This is a beautiful 'bijou' hotel situated just behind the Piazza Grande in Locarno, yet very tranquil and quiet. Excellent parking facilities, quality rooms, courteous and attentive service and exquisite breakfasts !

The Hotel has a very good location (near the Piazza Grande) and the rooms are modern and very clean. The bathroom is separated by a milky glass wall only and if you travel by two and you are looking for a very high privacy, then this may disturb you.... The reastaurant in the Hoel is excellent and the atmosphere in... More

Very sympathetic and fairly priced design hotel. Rooms have bathrooms that cannot be properly closed and standard rooms are fairly small. Other than that the hotel is very close to the centre of Locarno and very nicely decorated. Breakfast is decent ( we did not have other meals) and the staff are very friendly.

The small boutique hotel is in an ancient, completely renovated and modernized building, right on the edge of the old town, very close to Piazza Grande. The hotel opened 4 weeks ago. All rooms are different, built to a genuine, modern design hotel standard. The staff were very welcoming and nice. The breakfast selection and service were superb. Some private... More
