Wonderful boutiquish hotel on Lago Maggiore to get away from it all! Easy to find, situated at the village/lake entry. Medieval style architecture inside, with large outdoor patio, breakfast area, indoor swimming, sauna, and exercise facility. There's also a reading lounge area in the historic tower section with a guest computer. And just steps from the lakefront, most rooms have... More

Stayed here for 3 nights for the Ascona Jazz Festival. What is remarkable about this hotel is that it seems to function with about 5 staff! That is not to say it is a bad hotel; far from it in fact. The staff are all very helpful and friendly, and Simone deserves a special mention for her help in guiding... More

I didn't spend a lot of time in my room over the course of three days, but when I did, the lodging was great. The bed was comfortable, WiFi quick and consistent, and the view was spectacular. I did not take advantage of the indoor pool, but the spa was very relaxing. The hotel staff were very professional and assisted... More

The hotel its self is very well appointed with excellent rooms, terrace overlooking the promenade and lake and an indoor swimming pool and spa. The hotel staff were very friendly and made time to chat at various times during our stay (Armeda especially). The room was good and... More

Located on the piazza in Ascona, our room overlooked the piazza and looked out onto Lake Maggiore. The room was very comfortable and spacious enough. Staff was very nice and professional. The breakfast was very good, but the coffee machine confusing with no directions in English. Wi-fi access was very good, always a plus. Liked the fact that they have... More

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.

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
