Having stayed at several 3-star properties across Switzerland, this one is a gem. Albergo Carcani is located directly on the lakefront promenade offering spectacular views and easy access on foot, by boat (seasonal), bus or car to shopping, restaurants and local attractions. Newly renovated, even the smallest of rooms is modern, clean and comfortable. The front desk staff are friendly,... More

As we were driving this hotel was difficult to find and sat nav didn't help. A local offered to lead us down with his car! Narrow bendy roads. Found it at last. Worth the wait. It's right on the lakeside near lots of bars, restaurants and shops, but not too busy or noisy. Once unloaded we had to move the... More

The hotel has a good, central waterfront location in Ascona. While our first floor room was described in the booking as “lake view” (and this was technically correct), the view was largely blocked by the foliage of the trees that line the waterfront here. They were unable to move us to a higher floor as they were full. So my... More

I believe Albergo Carcani, part of the Tschuggen Group originating from Arosa, is a great choice for Ascona. The location is idyllic, service is great and the rooms are quite nice. Furthermore, they have their own parking space very close by. Pre-arrival: Always prompt in replying and attending every detail. Room: Quite nice, clean and tidy, but could have taken... More

Perfect location, Wonderful welcome from Suzanne after a tiring journey, really helpful advice from Tamara on local markets and boat times, very stylish, modern facilities - everything worked! Everything kept spotless and the breakfasts and dinners were of highest quality. But the location is also unbeatable right on the edge of the lake near the boat station with spectacular views....

This lake-front albergo is the perfect spot in Ascona. Located in Plazza Motta is overlooks the lake. It is super cool. I love the architecture and decor. The rooms are modern, with a great bathroom.

My husband and I just spent three nights at this hotel and had a wonderful time. The location, staff, food were all wonderful. Breakfast was delicious and generous. One previous reviewer said they didn't have eggs but they do now. Only negative thought I have is that I believe it's a little pricey even for Ascona.

We stayed 3 nights at the Albergo Carcani during a birthday celebration weekend to Ascona. The rooms are bright and fresh and very comfortable. More functional than luxurious...... For two people you need to schedule your bathroom time, as there is not a lot of space. The hotel is perfectly situated on the Ascona front. We had 1st floor rooms... More

Location, couldn't be better. Atmosphere, perfect. Clean, well appointed and service is excellent. We got a room on the top floor with a view of the lake and the mountains. How perfect for the end of our vacation. Given the cost of hotels in this area, this is a bargain. Breakfast is very good and plentiful.
