Dear Madame, thank you for the visit at our Tea-Room - Restaurant. Sorry that the Toast Caprese was not liked. We must point out, that you has not eaten a Sandwich Caprese but a Toast Caprese (hot) with the excellent basil-mustard, tomato and buffalo mozzarella. We can not put a great deal of mozzarella, because heating the Toast come out... More

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

We lobbed into the Hotel Schiff right on the promenade, without a booking. The owner Andrea was very helpful, caring for our luggage and guiding us to the free car park.

Excellent location on the lake with beautiful family run management. Spotlessly clean rooms and the most fabulous buffet breakfast. Convenient location for restaurants and boating. Do check out the chain of '7' restaurants nearby. All in all a very satisfying and comfortable stay.
