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. Ascona is probably the nicest town to stay... More

Small, quiet, tastefully decorated, very friendly family run hotel. The family plays/sings the blues/jazz and it was fantastic! The view from the terrace was terrific and the pool was lovely and uncrowded with plenty of lounge chairs. The breakfast was outstanding with fresh squeezed orange juice and we were able to make up a tray and have it delivered to... More

I can highly recommend the Arthotel Riposo to anyone who is looking for a quiet little treasure right in the center of old town Ascona. The hotel is beautifully situated just off the pedestrian way and only about two minutes from the lake with all its restaurants, coffee and icecream places and shops. Food and service is excellent and the... More

Avery charming hotel with a long family tradition. Visited this hotel over 50 years ago and still want to come back. Artfully decorated, with a great view over Lago Maggiore and Asona from the roof top terrace. Good service, warm welcome, good food with my kind of jazz is a winning combination. The enthusiasm of everyone is inspiring. We'll be... More

We really wanted to like the Arthotel Riposo, it looks great from the website and especially after reading so many very positive reviews we were really looking forward to our stay. However, for our taste, this hotel falls far short in a few areas. First the plus points: I can only say positive things about the ladies at reception and... More

My husband and I just returned from our second visit to the Art Hotel Riposo - and we still love it! The staff are very friendly, the location excellent in the heart of Ascona. We took a smaller room but it was very nice and clean. Would be great if wifi was available in the room! The roof terrace and... More

A little bit on the expensive side but all in all excellent! We enjoyed the syimming pool and food on the terrace where you have a great view of the lake. The only two things missing are air conditioning and wifi in the rooms (there's free wifi only in the lounge).

Very conveniently located near Asconas beautiful lakefront, the hotel offers more value than its three stars would suggest. Rooms are tasteful and spacious, the inner court yard for meals is charming and the rooftop terrace is simply spectacular with an amazing view of Acona and the Lago Maggiore. Service is friendly and professional. Quality of the meals is good, there... More

We enjoyed our stay here. Staff were all very helpful. Food was very good. Room was comfortable but on the small side for "premium". Room lacked air conditioning which would have been needed if we wanted to shut the balcony doors but I would have thought essential in July or August. Garden, pool and rooftop all added to the pleasant... More

While the Art Hotel Riposa may not be the most obvious choice in Ascona, it's a hidden gem. Tucked away in a back lane near the lake front, the hotel's charms unfold slowly as you discover all it's rooms for eating, relaxing and enjoying a glass of wine or two in beautiful Ascona. I ended a trip there for three... More
