Immaculate, friendly, great location. Andreas was a superb host and makes a great morning coffee. Free parking close to hotel. Room was spacious with a good layout and a nice sitting area. Morning buffet was tasty and satisfying. Great price for off season. Beds were comfortable, good linens and pillows. We will be back!

This was our first time to this part of the country, and a Swiss friend recommended Ascona, and suggested finding a hotel on the waterfront. We found the Hotel Schiff-Battello via... More

The manager was a very gracious host and offered to help in any way. We enjoyed the breakfast that was included. We wanted to leave early the last morning and the... More

We stayed for four nights in this wonderfully situated hotel right on the lakefront. We were thrilled to be able to watch a family of swans on the promenade from our balcony.The hotel owner Andrea Wildi is extraordinarily energetic and welcoming.

Our room at Hotel Schiff was clean, spacious, and quiet. The owner was very knowledgeable and helpful in providing suggestions for what to do during the off season in Ascona. The breakfast was extensive and delicious. The only downside was the smoking from nearby balcony that wafted into our room and prevented us from opening balcony door.
