My partner organized a suprise trip to Ascona for my birthday, and we stayed at the Garni Meridiana. We got a nice room with a fantastic view on Lago Maggiore. The rooms are clean and nice, a little bit basic. The bathroom is small but well-fitted. The breakfast however was a bit disappointing. The location is the reason why you... More

I stayed there for 2 nights. The hotel is very small but at the quai directly at the lake maggiore. Very clean room, not big, but the view is amazing. Also the breakfast buffet was very nice and fresh. I can highly recommend the hotel. Really outstanding. And great restaurants very close.

The rooms are modern and nice with lots of space and a newly refurbished bathroom with a tropical shower. You have even a small terrace. In the room, they provide you with different snacks to eat free of charge, however there are no drinks and no coffee machine. The hotel has a very nice pool and spa, breakfast is good... More

Superb little hotel on the shore of Lake Maggiore. Great lakeside location, seconds walk from the hotel entrance to the water. Boutique style, nicely designed and laid-out, with little noise from either other rooms or the surrounding area. Friendly and helpful staff mean we would thoroughly recommend this.

This hotel is a delight, it is modern, clean, with excellent service from a limited number of staff. The rooms are large with superb air conditioning, and the beds are very comfortable. The only complaint was that having booked three rooms for our family, one room was incorrect, and two of our family had to make do with a basic... More

What a pleasant surprise this hotel turned out to be! With just one TripAdvisor review in the past year and only seemingly available from Booking.com, it came as a refreshing change to find a hugely under-rated hotel tick so many boxes. We were fortunate enough to have a junior suite, with a patio area attached to the main terrace overlooking... More

A quaint hotel located on the shore of Lake Langen. The check in was quite easy and pleasant. Our company uses the hotel often and think this helps. The hotel is conveniently located in an area with shops and restaurants. Easy 7 is a 1 minute walk and serves really nice Italian cuisine. The hotel itself is nicely appointed and... More

Very nice experience in prime location. We had a comfort room to the side of the hotel (in the modern tract) overlooking the terrace and side-look to the lake. Rooms were quite big, very comfortable beds. Stylish bathroom - I'd say style isn't everything, sometimes 'practical' would do it for me, but it sure looks good... The staff were friendly... More

the rooms are nice but not better than the ones in a novotel or similar hotels. Unfortunately, the prices are much higher.. I payed 350 CHF for one night although the hotel doesn't even have a restaurant or a pool. At least the hotel is situated in one of the most beautiful places all over the world... Ascona is a...
