I didn't hate my stay at Hotel Locarno but I didn't love it either. The hotel lobby/building/bar/eating area are lovely - old world charm feel with all the touches. The staff were nice but not overly friendly. The breakfast was really nice - lots of options and good service. Eating in the courtyard was a treat that made the stay better.
My issue was with the rooms - they are very outdated and very small. There was barely any light in the room which made it very difficult to do anything. The bed felt like a university room bed - not all that comfortable. The TV was extremely outdated - not that I watched any. There was no place to put my luggage so I resorted to balancing my carry-on on a chair. The side table was old and worn as were the fixtures in the room.
The bathroom was very outdated and in need of some TLC. The tap leaked the entire time I was there - there was just no way to stop it. The shower was very small and turning around or moving around was a challenge. While it wasn't a huge issue - I did notice a lot of ants about the room and I don't think it was bc the rooms were dirty.
One of my biggest issues was the noise level - if you are a light sleeper I'd reconsider or ask for a room that doesn't face the street as mine did.
