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. The hotel itself is beautifully decorated, but in a relaxed and welcoming way, with artistic touches throughout, it is very different to other hotels we have stayed in, being elegant and homely at...

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. 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

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).
