The reviews were encouraging so I chose this B and B, but was disappointed from the get go. I entered the caffe? Shop? B and B? and there was no one at the desk in the clothes shop. I stepped down into the cafe and an older woman was arguing with 2 younger women. The older woman finally noticed me... More

We were looking for a one-night quiet stay in Locarno after our baby had been for three days at the local hospital for emergency. On the phone, the hotel staff said they could only take bookings made on the website. At the end of an online reservation process the note specified children were not welcome at the hotel. On the...

Dear MariaandBen thank you for leaving your comment on Tripadvisor. While we can understand you were disappointed by the fact our bed and breakfast cannot accommodate children, we must point out the fact that we absolutely cannot accept your sentence about "discriminating place". As you well described in you comment, we informed you over the phone that our property is... More

Cute boutique hotel in the middle of the old part of Locarno. Its a mixture of a b&b, a cafe and a florist! Very relaxing atmosphere. Public parking available around and there is also a parkhaus nearby. Staff were very friendly and hepful. Highly recommended.

A lovely boutique experience, something different in this slightly quirky b&b in a great location in Locarno. A very warm welcome from the ladies who run it. They were friendly and helpful, great service without being over the top. The breakfast is amazing if rather a lot if it. So much thought and love gone into creating and running this... More

We had a wonderful experience in Caffe dell'Arte that went way beyond our expectations. We were shown all rooms in the house and when we felt in love with another room than we had initially booked, we were offered to change without additional fees. Our new room was romantic, spacious and with lovely balcony overlooking the garden and with view... More

the hotel maintains a good balance between being thoughtfully designed and being practical and clean. Every corner reveals a well designed, if not quirky, detail. The designer feel flowed into our room which was spacious, clean and well equipped. The breakfast was very nice, several well designed "courses" brought out one after the other. The small courtyard garden was also... More

This B&B is difficult to rate. We had no booking. The welcome was nothing special and a bit desolate, also as we were not allowed to see the room(we could see it on the internet). But we liked the feel of the house and the many great reviews and decided to stay. The room was very small, the bathroom was... More

The reason this is no.1 B&B becomes obvious when you stay there. Lovely owners who seemed to have sprinkled gold dust all over. The room was spacious, well decorated, clean and very comfortable. Location is great 2 mins from main square and fun walking around the cobbled lanes. We found this by accident as we couldn't get this night in... More

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.
