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

We spent four nights at Hotel Riposo and couldn't be more pleased: with the room, the food, the situation and perhaps most importantly the high-quality service and friendliness offered by the hotel personnel. Already when booking, and then when helping us out with certain travel arrangments, the staff showed extraordinary service-mindedness. Our room for two was charming, cosy, equipped with... More

This hotel deserves to be rated as the number one property in Ascona. For me one of the most beautiful hotels that I have ever stayed in. All rooms are embellished with beautiful paintings and flowers. Just like being in an art museum. Stayed in room 29 which features a large terrace overlooking Ascona. Very comfortable bed. Good breakfast. Lunch... More
