Nicely placed hotel and very quiet and spacious room. Service at reception was helpful and polite. Shower could have been bigger but enjoyed the stay. For 1 or 2 nights did the job well, but for a longer stay would need more storage space and a larger bathroom.

I visited the hotel during the film festival 2014. Very clean room, good locating. Breakfast was poor, personal not very helpful. 3 floor in summer is horribly hot, no air conditioner. Too expensive for its quality.

I found the staff very welcoming and very smiley, room was basic but very clean, breakfast was really good considering it was included (I've stayed other places and paid for breakfast and it was no where as good as this). Location was amazing as we came for a concert and we stumbled across the cobbles and were home!!! I prefer... More

We've been there at the beginning of March. We arrived early in the afternoon, planning at least to leave our luggage, but everything was closed, with a sheet of paper on the door giving a mobile phone number. So if you don't have yourself a mobile (yes, that still happens), you are stuck. So, we came later. The room was... More

I spent 1 week-end with my wife and our 2 daughters in this hotel in Locarno. Below pros and cons: Pros: - nice location - good quality of the restaurant. Try their meat cooked on hot stoone - confortable bed. Cons: - hotel maintenance. The hotel was renovated only partially. Avoid 1st floor and especially room n.12 where only few... More

We stayed in the family room of Hotel America. The hotel is upgraded and the room was great. The location is unbeatable (middle of Piazza Grande) and the staff is very helpful. We also ate at their restaurant and really liked the entrecote that is served on a lava stone - delicious. Would recommend for city visits to Locarno.

Upon arriving at the hotel, we were asked to pay for the entire stay immediately. It does make one wonder if they don't want you to shorten the stay; or maybe they had customers refusing to pay the full amount. Our room had a balcony overlooking an alley where people from the surrounding shops and restaurants put out their trash.... More
