This hotel is situated in a great location, all walking distance to town and restaurants. They do have free parking however it is very limited so we ended up paying for the 3 day parking. The view of the room was beautiful and the noise wasn't so bad from the street and traffic. The bed was a bit too springy... More

Very nice hôtel very well situated on lake front. If you have a lake front room the view is absolutely great. Service réception is great. Rooms are a bit small, a bit outdated bathroom not much room. This hôtel deserve 3 stars but certainly not 4 stars

Much that is positive. We had a huge room overlooking the lake — fantastic view. Great balcony with awnings to provide some shade from the sun. The hotel provides bikes free of charge, though the number is limited so you need to reserve them early in the day. Excellent breakfast. Staff always very helpful. There is limited parking. When we... More

The hotel feels like a perfect setting for a novel. The view from our room of the river was stunning! The room was so large and the facilities so wonderful! The restaurant was not very buy but had a fantastic terrace. The hotel is located on the river maggio and we took the train into Italy because the location! The... More

The hotel is located in front of lake and is on perfect location. I visited hotel in Christmas season so was decorated with lights and christmas tree. They have a nice piano in check in area and this was giving a classic hotel like feel. The staff was very polite and was able to converse in English properly unlike other... More

We had a double room with fantastic view on the lake very close to the sauna which was ready for use 30 minutes after notice at the reception. Nice breakfast buffet with fresh cooked eggs. Friendly staff speaking many languages (ITalian, German, English, French). Very relaxing stay, comfortable beds, quiet place. Still, affordable for Switzerland.

I did not expect too much of the Ramada marque. I breezed in late one evening midweek. There was free overnight parking on the street or a small lot behind the hotel. Reception was prompt and friendly. As the hotel was dead, they upgraded my room to a balcony room overlooking the lake. Room was a bit worn, but it... More

The location of the hotel is great, right next to the train station. Easy access to the boats and the other attractions around Locarno. The rooms are slightly dated but they are spacious and clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. Great lakeside location, even if the room view is not of the lake the view on the other side... More

The location is superb. Could not be better.Easy walking distance to the centre and right on the lake front . In its day it probably was a 4 star but its faded glory almost makes one weep. The lobby is something out of a shabby 50s movie, the rooms, although tarted up and a very large size with fantastic views... More
