The hotel is situated inmiddle the picturesque town of Ascona. We only stayed for one night and were impressed by the personal and friendly touch of the owners. We enjoyed the lovely, clean and spacious rooms and a rich breakfast.

I read a review which said something like "a restaurant with rooms" and I think that's a good summary. Anywhere else and I would say it was greatly overpriced, but this was my first time in Switzerland and I was prepared to grin and bear it. There are steep outside steps to the rooms and ours was clean and comfortable... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel last week. The owners Stephanie and Christoph are delightful The hotel is very well managed. We ate one night and the food was very good, however the breakfasts in my opinion lack imagination. Even allowing the hotel is in Switzerland it is quite expensive for what it is.

This is a terrific hotel, in the centre of Ascona. The staff are absolutely charming and our room was very large, bright and clean. The bathroom was a bit on the small side however, and had been oddly configured in proportion to the bedroom. Our only criticism was the coffee at breakfast which was not only incredibly strong but was... More

What luck! We ended up in Ascona because we couldn't find accommodation in Locarno and were delighted with both the town and with Albergo Antica Posta. The hotel is run by an extremely pleasant husband and wife team who are keen to help you get the most out of your stay. The rooms are large, very attractive and comfortable, with... More

We just loved every second of being in this hotel, it was a step above most that we have stayed in while in Europe, in room size, comfort, friendliness and sophistication. The location was great and the staff (the lovely owner couple) were just perfect. I'd definitely recommend to anyone heading to Ascona.

Once again, following Tripadvisor's review has led us to yet another wonderful stay! Albergo Antica Posta is a true gem in Ascona. The ratings says it all. Stéphanie & Christoph are the most awesome hosts!! Everything you ask for, they go the extra mile. I think Tripadvisor should have a category for a 6-Stars service award!!
