I found this hotel via the local tourist office after a terrible experience with a supposedly top-end hotel outside Locarno. See my reivew of Palazzo Gamboni in Comologno. While being at the budget end of the market the propretress went out of her way to find me a room for two nights. The room was small but spotlessly clean with... More

We are staying in Rondinella every summer for more than 10 years and always look forward to coming back. Nice, homely and family run for several generations, it is now a modern hotel superbly located on the lake shore overlooking Locarno Bay. Spacious rooms are air conditioned and boast fantastic views from the balconies over Lago Maggiore and the mountains.... More

We knew this was a budget hotel and we had got a special rate of 400chf for four nights, but this was still bad value. We drove to Locarno as we live in Switzerland and had been led to believe that there was parking. We parked in the small public carpark outside the building, 2chf per hour and went up... More

Location of the hotel is good - close to train station and with nice view towards the lake but one major problem - it is located on the main street in Locarno and traffic noise is 24hrs non-stop. If you fancy some sleep, if is almost impossible with the windows open. And it is too hot and stuffy to sleep... More

I enjoyed my recent stay at Garni Rondinella. The owners are very nice, the rooms clean and comfortable and the location is the best in Locarno. The hotel is very easy to find from the train station and most rooms have a view of Lake Maggiore. It is in the heart of Locarno, so the hotel is very convenient to... More

The Rondinella is right on the harbours edge with beautiful views across the lake to the mountains from the balconies (ask for a south facing room). Staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms clean and spacious. Breakfast excellent. Try the restuarant downstairs for simple but delicious local dishes

We stayed at the Rondinella in May of 2004 and recommend it without reservation. Here's why:--location is the best--two blocks from the train station and across the street from the lake and the Piazza Grande shopping area--hotel and rooms were immaculate--you could eat off the floors.--the price is unbeatable--140chf/nt for a double with breakfast--great view of Lago Maggiore from many...
