We stayed 3 nights at the Albergo Carcani during a birthday celebration weekend to Ascona. The rooms are bright and fresh and very comfortable. More functional than luxurious...... For two people you need to schedule your bathroom time, as there is not a lot of space. The hotel is perfectly situated on the Ascona front. We had 1st floor rooms that did not have a view and suffered with street noise. The windows are well insulated, so you need to close the windows and rely on the airconditioning. A very good Continental breakfast was included in our room rate and substantial to say the least. No restrictions on number of visits to the buffet, or number of coffees.
Now the best part.... The staff at the Carcani were exceptional, nothing was too much trouble and everyone was exceptionally pleasant.
Would I go back or recommend to a friend...... Most certainly....!
