We came for coffee and desserts during our short stay in Ascona. A great location with excellent view over the lake and promenade made our visit joyful. Coffees and desserts tasted great and service was friendly and attentive. Next time we should try to stay overnight.

I booked online with 85 Ch per night + tax including fabulous breakfast and free wifi. The hotel is so clean and spacious.

From my room balcony I could see the lake and the lane with beautiful... More

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
