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.

The beds are perfectly comfortable, we slept like in heaven. The bathroom was small, but clean and with a gigantic shower cabin. The only minus here is a sliding door which is not really soundproof... More

The clean, simply designed rooms with a beautiful view of the lake and promenade were just about perfect. Beds were very comfortable, shower fairly spacious and modern, and there was very little late night noise from the restaurants and bars on the promenade. Noise levels may be different during peak summer season, but closing the window should take care of... More
