We stayed here for 5 nights and loved the quiet and beautiful location on the water. While our room was very small, it was cleaned at least twice a day and the time we spent in it was very comfortable -- we loved the double duvet covers at night. We used the bicycles provided by the hotel to travel into... More

We did stay for two nights in this fantastic and peaceful place which is directly located at the lake Maggiore in Ticino, Switzerland. All staff has been extremely friendly and attentive. Interior is very modern and warm. Rooms are great with nice bathroom. All very very clean. Will definitely return.

We stayed in Locarno at the new affiliated property. It's right on the lake and they have bicycles available to ride along the lake to downtown. The restaurant was excellent. I had a veal chop that was melt-in-your-mouth tender. Breakfast was included and outstanding. Great view of the lake from the restaurant and patios.

They are doing everything for its customers, even if you're coming too late for breakfast ... they are like magicians! The rooms are little bit small...but really nice. Just one point: If sou're by car, it's... More

We spent a long weekend at this great place, and we will certainly be back. We love the style and the interior of the hotel, only 14 rooms which means very relaxed environment, and the staff were very pro-active whenever any question. Don't miss dinner at the restaurant, we had one of the best dinners for a while (try the... More

Beautiful hotel by the lake. Great location and great design. Size of the bedrooms are 15-17 sq.m! At CHF 400/night not really value for money. Ok to stay 1-2 nights! We missed the rooms at the Park Hyatt in Milan! Breakfast is at best average (poor croissants, no selection of yoghurts etc). Wifi requires endless re-logging in - not sure... More

We stayed here for 3 nights with our 3 kids. Although the hotel does not have interconnecting rooms, our rooms were situated so close we hardly found it lacking. The rooms were delightful however a little small. The restaurant wonderful, the scenery and location amazing and the stuff helpful and dedicated. The free bikes were just an added bonus. We... More

The staff are friendly helpful, the ambiance is artsy cool but the real surprise is the excellent quality and value for money of the restaurant. The restaurant's speciality is grilled meats which are done in a special oven, (I am wondering if it's a Salamander) which is very hot. We had a filet which was from Ireland, and an entrecôte...
