We recently stayed at this little hotel for four nights with family. It is in a convenient position, not far above the wharf. It is certainly small but our beds were comfortable, the rooms very clean and the breakfasts were good. There is nowhere very much to sit and have a drink and the Terraza was in fact the car...

This old-fashioned small hotel, located in a small alley in town. Very clean, small staff and very friendly , offer help in any matter. Rooms a bit small and rather old-fashioned, their credit that there are many electrical outlets for loading our mobile devices. Breakfast is modest and reasonable, quiet and pleasant atmosphere. The price of the rooms is very... More

This hotel is situated a short walk from Lago Maggiore. It has clean rooms and a mediocre breakfast, and free parking. Most of the staff were relaxed and friendly. Also they let us arrange a late check in as they are normally only open until 20:00

I went to the hotel during the easter weekend, and my and my friend LOVED it. First of all, the location is in Muralto area. Which is very near to the Locarno train station and the lake. It took us onlyl 5-8 minutes by (leisurely) walking to reach the station and lake. It is very easy to find place to... More

A small cozy hotel in the hilly part of Muralto, a fraction of Locarno, ten minutes walking from the lake shore and Locarno railway station. The hotel does not enjoy any particular view on the lake or on the mountain and it is situated in a residential area of the village, surrounded by normal houses and buildings. The overall is...

Stayed here with a friend on a 1-1/2 day trip to Locarno/Ascona and stayed at the Piccolo Hotel. Its a smallish but clean, friendly and efficiently run place. Very Swiss. They upgraded us to a nice large room on the top floor with beautiful views of the greenery and mountains. The amenities were sufficient and of good quality. Breakfast was... More
