“Great Location for Ascona Jazz Festival”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014 via mobile

Fantastic location for the Ascona Jazz Festival. My room overlooked the waterfront and was within earshot of some of the concerts. The staff were very obliging and apologetic about the poor Wi-Fi in my room. Excellent breakfast and dinner menus. A very enjoyable stay.

Stayed June 2014, traveled solo

We spent 3 nights during the Ascona Jazz festival. The location is excellent , on the lungolago promenade. Front desk and management are very helpful and friendly.
Rooms are quite small but clean. A bit overprice.

Room Tip: Do not choose the medieval tower room which is the best one, unless you want to climb 40 stairs.

We spend a wonderful time in Castello Seeschloss, very nice room, we had n° 501, a real tread with a nice balcony and a specious seating area. The room was very clean and we had a nice and very large bathroom.
We can recommend this wonderful place to all travellers especially with this great local location. We are coming back

Room Tip: take 501 or one in the back of the Hotel

We decided to spend a few days in Ascona and did not reserve a room in advance, our first hotel visit after parking our car was the Castello which is right at the beginning of the lake front, the friendly receptionist showed us the hotel and a few rooms, we chose a standard room with a small balcony in the main building on the second floor, the room itself wasn't very spacious but from the balcony the lake view was stunning! Very nice pool and garden area! Free parking and valet service upon demand! Great the garden restaurant in front of the hotel! Perfect location and very friendly staff!

Room Tip: Room with balcony in the main building

We discovered this hotel on our first trip last year, booking a standard room. This year on our return to Ascona we decided this time to upgrade to a suite, and were treated to the room at the top of the "tower".

As per last time the hotel reminded us of its perfect location, situated at the end of the main street and overlooking the lake of maggiorre. The rooms are not super modern but are clean, well equipped as per most hotels and very inviting with comfortable beds and goos sized rooms. The views if you are lake side are simply postcard like and the location second to none.

The breakfast buffet is very good, a wide selection of excellent foods, local produce and made to order eggs etc. Service is high standard and very welcoming. It has a pool which is clean and with plenty of space to relax if needed, or alternatively choose to relax in the secluded garden.

We will be back next year, its our annual Ascona preferred hotel. The only minus point is the rather tight underground garage, but then again that cannot be changed and is simply luck of the draw to the space you get - it should not detract from a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Tower room/lake view

We stayed in one of the lake view rooms in the main building. The room was pretty special and quiet, but it really stood out for its beautiful old painted ceiling and the crystal chandelier. The atmosphere was classy and the room was spacious, plus we has some amazing views over the colorful promenade, the lake and the mountains. The hotel is located only a few minutes walk away from the ferry dock. There's also a free car parking in the vicinity. There are many bars, restaurants and shops along the promenade, but I really recommend you give the hotel's restaurant a try as well. The staff is so, so nice! Oh, and don't forget to ask for some local wine.
