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

The room was very nice, spacious, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent - a nice choice of breads, homemade jams, cheese and charcuterie, eggs and... 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

We spent three nights at the Art Hotel Riposo in the center of Ascona as part of a summer tour of Italian/Swiss lakes. The hotel is located 50 meters away from Lake Maggiore in a quiet high-end resort that deserves to be visited by the non-Swiss. We loved it! That is a family-run hotel and you feel that the family...

It was our first visit to the Art Hotel Riposo - which we thoroughly enjoyed despite "the weather". Hospitality is held high in this establishment, the service is very friendly with a personal touch that made us feel "special". The artfully decorated public areas are wonderful to behold. This is a place where customer service is underlined with passion. Unfortunately... More
