This tastefully decorated family-run boutique hotel is only a few moments stroll away from the promenade in Ascona and offers great views of lake Maggiore and the surrounding hills from its roof terrace (which also has a small swimming pool) and a number of its brightly decorated rooms.

We only booked for one night but were given a very warm handshake greeting when we arrived. Asked if we'd like something to drink, and having said yes please, our drinks were sent up to the roof terrace by a lift! A magnificent view of Ascona with a mediterranean flair greeted us, while our kids headed for the rooftop swimming... More

We recently spent 3 nights at the Hotel Riposa and just loved it. Our room though small, was nicely appointed with an amazing view of the lake. The European breakfast each morning was very nice with an addition of pancakes (my husband was happy!). We were able to have one dinner in the dining room and enjoyed very much our... More

We have just returned from a holiday at the Hotel Riposo and can't say enough good things about it. The staff are professional, friendly and very helpful.

Great roof terrace, we spent the whole day up there enjoying the sun, swimming in the pool, and eating delicious food! Quiet place (only the jazz concert in the yard was a bit too loud for my ears), friendly staff and nice rooms, we'll be back!

Great hotel in a great location, good safe parking, extremely helpful, friendly and welcoming staff. The rooms are well sized and very clean with good amenities. there is no air con but this isn't needed as everyone leaves their balcony doors open adding to the relaxed and friendly atmosphere within the hotel.

Small, quiet, tastefully decorated, very friendly family run hotel. The family plays/sings the blues/jazz and it was fantastic!
