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

What about a place where it is possible to spend 3 / 4 day in a calm and quiet atmosmere but with an amazing funny festival at one step outside the Hotel ? We went during the Artistidistrada festival in Ascona at the Hotel Schiff. It was supposed to be a raining week but in true was a nice experience... 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. We had to wait for our room to be available but Andrea gave us plenty of advice about where to go while we waited. There is a lift to... More

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.

The hotel is everything it "says on the box". We asked for a room with a balcony facing the lake - we got it, but we didn't count on the hundred year old trees along the promenade! But it made little difference.If you want to see the lake, make sure your ask for the second floor. The room was comfortable... More
