“Deep sleep, great food, breathtaking view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2015

Staying at hotel Ascona has been a great experience. It is located 5 minutes by foot (1minute by car) on the historic hill Monte Verita, very close to the town, but distant enough to be completely silent at night (compared to the hotels in the town).

Also, being slightly located above the town, the view of the delta, the lake Lago Maggiore and all the surrounding mountains, was sublime.

The room service was impeccable, and the food a true delight. Even when placing special orders, the kitchen and service were able to satisfy my whims.

Looking forward to my next visit to the Albergo.

Certainly enjoyed the visit to the Rinnovazione the other night. A good, reliable menu of choices, nice atmosphere, a delightful and friendly service and simply an enjoyable dinner with friends.

Often we forget the restaurants within Hotels, as Ticino and the Locarno / Ascona area is full of choice but this one competes well and any restaurant that 'commands a lake view", offers a good dining experience deserves the praise, where praise is due.

I'd recommend it and will be certainly going back hopefully soon

Very comfortable, well appointed, family owned hotel. We were greeted with apero on our arrival. Wonderful views from our balcony and the terrace. the only drawback was the noise from the private function one night.

Room Tip: Ask whether they have private functions on whilst staying.

Perhaps the wonderful sunshine in late September made some difference but our stay at the Hotel Ascona has to be very high amongst of the best of my hotel experiences.
The staff are always helpful and the food, from the extensive buffet breakfast, through lunch, to superb evening dining, is excellent.
Everywhere is kept scrupulously clean and tidy - supervised by the most friendly proprietor who is seen managing by walkabout every day.She added to our goodwill when she came to say goodbye at the end of our very enjoyable stay.
Facilities are good though the gym needs attention, a bit more kit and perhaps TV and/or video and the superb sauna and Jacuzzi would have helped me if instructions in English were available, (this absence was a common isuue in the entire region of Ascona), On a similar vein the room tv can only get one english speaking channel, (and I find CNN infuriating). These are all very minor when set against the excellence of everything else but this review would not be helpful were I not to include them.
The Hotel Ascona is undoubtedly strongly recommendedso go and enjoy the Ascona experience!

Room Tip: Do try to get a front facing room. These rooms have delightful views of the lake whereas the rear o...

On arrival the restaurant was closed by 8.45 in the evening.
But the following two nights we couldn't sleep as they music was loud until 2 in the morning and there is no one at the front desk until the morning! Very far from a descent 4* property !

The hotel was great. We checked-in quite late -without even notifying the hotel about our delay- and the staff at the reception waited for us patiently. She was very friendly, helpful and she always had a smile on her face. The room was great, too; comfortable, clean and quite tasteful, too. Our room had a large balcony and a great view of the town and the lake. The parking was private and absolutely safe.

I just spent a night with my mother at this beautiful place. We enjoyed a really warm and friendly reception, a large room tastefully decorated with a terrace with great view.
Dinner was good but not exceptional. Staff is very friendly.
