The Belevedere sits above Locarno, 10 minute (steep) walk down to the main square or quick ride on the funicular with slightly discounted rates from the hotel.
Nice views, big room, very modern. Perhaps lacks old world charm, but the nice views and spaciousness make up for it.
Staff is extremely helpful and very friendly. Good amenities (wifi, safe, nice toiletries, 2 free glasses if prosecco, fresh fruit in the room, etc.) plus, free use of bicycles and breakfast included. The only downside is the relatively high room price on which they add 13 CHF per day for parking in their garage.
All in all, a good experience. If only they could also control the weather and ward off all the rain.
