Just wonderful! A hotel with a personal touch, very neat and with very comfortable beds... And amazing breakfast. This is the breakfast to enjoy! Let it surprise you... And the hotel is 3 min walking for the main square.

Walking through the city of Locarno, enjoying the small streets in the old part, we found this well hidden pearl: art combined with great hospitality. A simple and short menue - and what is offered is as simple but excellent. A fantastic atmosphere in the innergarden with mediteranean plants - a place for contemplation in the middle of a busy...

One of the best weekend! Love the atmosphere and delicious breakfast. Every room has his charm and every single one is different. Fantastic people, fantastic place. Was totally surprised that we can find a place like that in the middle of the city.

The room was fresh, clean and beautifully furnished while the bathroom was one of the best we have had in this type of accommodation (NOT large hotel). Breakfast was to die for , so extravagant we had to jump in quickly on... More

We were disappointed because no dogs allowed even there was a huge dog in the breakfeast room in the morning. So we had to leave our little dog in the car.I found the bathroom a bit too small. ... But well equipped. The room was also small but very nice decorated. The breakfast was indeed a unique experience of excellence!... More

Caffe' dell'Arte is a simply charming boutique B&B with very original zany decor and a friendly relaxing atmosphere. A perfect spot for a romantic get-away if you seek a total contrast to business hotels or impersonal hotel chains...but don't rely on communicating in English; we managed with French & German and have vowed to learn Italian. A wonderful feast of... More
