This little hotel up on the hillside near Locarno welcomes you with a wonderful terrace, a garden with heated swimmingpool and a breathtaking view over Locarno and the Lago Maggiore. It is run by the owner who takes himself care of his guests in a very friendly way. I always feel there at home. The hotel runs also a little... More

The Hotel Stella is a wonderful little hotel. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Rene, one of the owners, was exceptionally helpful and spoke English very well. We had two rooms on the 4th floor. The rooms are modern, clean, well appointed, air conditioned and have absolutely fantastic views. The rooms are not large but adequate for two people.... More

Hotel Stella lies about 150 meter above Locarno in Orselina. It is a 1,5 km walk to Locarno, but you can use the funicolare too. The hotel sells retourtickets for €3. The hotel is a family type hotel. The crew is very friendly and provides good service. We had a design room at de top floor. At €250/night (breakfast included)... More

The hotel is located in Orselina, far above Locarno city center. Still it was just 5 minutes walk from the cable car that goes down to the city or up to the mountain. This location also allowed wonderful views of the lake (definitely opt for lake-view garden rooms). The garden room (number 1) was large and comfortable, with a modern... More

Gorgeous boutique hotel above Locarno in the small town of Orselina. A 10 minute walk to the Feniculare, and cable car. Restaurant on location which serves a typical Swiss breakfast, and service is attentive. Stunning view of Lake Maggiore, and a bit cooler than being situated in downtown Locarno. We enjoyed the calm and tranquility of the location.

We spent two nights in this hotel and have booked the "casa giardino" accomodation, which is very similar to a studio flat, well-furnished, with a fully-equiped kitchen and a nice bathroom. The only inconvenient was with the shower, there was no possibility to close it and the ground of the bathroom was at the same level. So that every time... More
