If you're thinking of going to the Ticino, the choice between Lugano, Locarno and Ascona is clear (at least in my opinion). Ascona is by far winner. My sweetheart and I just returned two days ago from a two-night (wedding-related) stay at the Piazza (in the "Olive" sister hotel just in the back of the overall complex - room #5).... More

We have been there twice and always the food was very good. The atmosphere is quiet and we have time to talk and rest. We recommend it if you are near by. I remember the waiter very friendly and the orange juice so fresh. We will be back if possible. Its avoid place to go as couple.

The address supplied sent us 5km down the road and we got little help after phoning the hotel 3 times. Our room was very small, but overlooks the beautiful lake. However, this is where the party revelers hang out all night and the shouting continued till 6am - when the breakfast clatter starts. The room was stifling hot and should... More

I spent two nights in a double for single use at the Piazza Ascona Hotel in June, and thought it quite affordable in comparison to other options in the area. I loved the location (just a few minutes walk from stop for the bus to Locarno and right by the boat dock) and I thoroughly enjoyed my views over the... More

We booked our hotel at the last minute and couldn't have been happier. We were originally scheduled to stay 6 nights in Lugano and cut it to 2 and spent 4 nights in Ascona instead. You can get a ferry from Locarno to Ascona and arrive in about 1/2 hour. Walking off the ferry you are about 60 feet to... More

Seven friends stayed in piazza for 3nights. The hotel is directly opposite the ferry port which allows you travel by lake to various towns/islands on lake maggiore. Staff were helpful and friendly. Hotels are expensive and you pay for your ideal location. Food is average as is breakfast. Rooms are clean but tired and balconies small, with excellent views. Remind... More

Very friendly, helpful staff. Clean room with comfortable bed and superb view over the lake and mountains. Having stayed in 4 and 5 star hotels around the world, it seems a tad harsh that this hotel has only 2. We ate in the hotel and were given a 10% discount off the bill. Ascona is gorgeous and you won't find... More

Although we were not given the requested room, we accepted the upgrade and enjoyed a good night's sleep in a clean room but without a lake view. Front Office and restaurant staff were helpful and friendly at all times which made for an enjoyable (although only 1 night) stay. We recommend this accommodation and will stay here again on our...

We would highly recommend this hotel. Excellent value for money and wonderful staff. We had a room on the courtyard so quiet and comfortable. The location couldn't be better and the food is also good.
