Nice, clean hotel 7 walking minutes from the Piazza. Have their own parking. Rooms are european sized incl. TV, nicely furnished and clean. We had a nice large balcony (some of them with view of the city and lake). Staff is very friendly and welcoming. Excellent value. Can only recommend it.

Very friendly staff, always helpfull, funny, Italian! Very very clean rooms. Although the bathrooms were basic but good. Choose the first floor as the rooms open into a garden terrace overlooking the mountain. I was lucky enough to get this. The hotel is walking distance to the very small downtown. Close to a bus station that can connect you to... More

I stayed at this hotel at the end of March 2015 and I have to say I have rarely felt as welcome and comfortable. The minute we arrived, we were greeted by Alessandro the General Manager who was kind, charming and informative. He professionally and accurately confirmed the details of our stay and continued by giving an introduction to the... More

We stayed here for one night traveling back from Valle Maggia to Switzerland. The location is a little outside of the old town but easy to walk. It is also somewhat dated but the staff were friendly and helpful, the pool and rooms were clean and so I can't really fault it!

The hotel is old and you will see that everywhere: furniture, bathroom ... The staff is very friendly, the location of the hotel is good (10 minute walk to the lake). If you come by car, there is a problem with the parking places: there are a few free parking spaces at the hotel (6 o7), and the alternative is... More

This hotel is in real need of updating and refurbishment. The rooms are large and clean, but the decor is very much 80's style and looks quite dated and uninviting. Wi-fi is included in the price, although unfortunately this only worked in one of our two rooms. As with many european hotels, there are no hospitality trays in the rooms,... More

Stayed here for the jazz festival . Ideal hotel , very comfortable bright single room, lots of space for clothes and toiletries, excellent breakfast compared with usual Italian standard. Allessandro and his team could not have been more welcoming and helpful. About 10 minutes' walk from the lake front. Would definitely stay there again.

Time-traveling in Ascona? Sure, in Hotel Sasso Boretto! Hotel was build somewhere in the glory days of Ascona, and since that seems like only thing is done is WiFi and Flatscreen. It is not necessary a bad thing. 80's are coming back, I guess. Sex on the beach, Duran-Duran, shoulder pads, lightblue jeans, etc, etc... Hotel was cozy, workers friendly,... More

In Spring 2012 we booked through Booking.com a studio at the 4 star Hotel Sasso Boretto, Ascona, Switzerland. Last summer we stayed there for one week. The 4 star hotel turned out to be more like a run down 2 star hostel. The necessary extensive renovations were going to start only after the tourist season in October. Upon our arrival... More

Very well-located hotel. No stairs climbing to reach it when back from the nice old city and the magnificent Lake. Near a bus station to Lucarno, a COOP store and walking distance from the Lake. Ventilators in the rooms, instead of A/C, are not pleasant and sufficient in hot days. Wi-Fi's not stable in the rooms. Very well-managed hotel with... More
