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

We had a great room with a balcony overlooking the lake. We enjoyed listening to the sax player sitting by the lake across the street. We stayed two nights. 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

Dear Madame, thank you for the visit at our Tea-Room - Restaurant. Sorry that the Toast Caprese was not liked.

We can not put a great deal of mozzarella, because heating the Toast come out... 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. He went out of his way to provide us with whatever help or information we needed--and even volunteered to... More

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.

This Hotel offers a brilliant location on the waters edge with some fantastic views if you get a water view facing the promenade. The owner is a third generation owner and he offers excellent advice (weather reports to the hour and fairly accurate at that!). My only observation was he was very 'business like' and at times I felt his... More
