“Clean and efficient.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

My husband and I stayed here recently for 2 nites. We were very pleasantly surprised with the room we got. We were expecting a small room but were given a bigger room at the corner. Breakfast was a simple set-up but it was well thought of because of the variety on offer eg boiled eggs, cold cuts, different types of breads, jams, cereals, cheeses, etc. And always looked clean. Management is friendly and very helpful. The hotel location is also ideal because it isn't far from the lake for that late night stroll and we always felt safe there. One advice is NOT to bring a big suitcase if you plan to drive there as the road is closed to vehicles. But the hotel can arrange parking space (5minutes' walking distance) if needed.

The location of this hotel is perfect: The lake, the restaurants, the shops, the bus stop - everything only a few steps away. It's not directly on the lake promenade and therefore much calmer. We booked the suite on the top floor and were really impressed: It was large and airy and offered a nice lake view (I believe all other rooms haven't a lake view). Everything looked spotless, clean and pretty new. There was also a balcony of a good size. Breakfast buffet was rather on the small side, but quality of food was good. The owners (father and son) care personally about their guests, and the son is funny. I absolutely recommend this hotel, and especially the suite. We payed CHF 320 which is not cheap, but worth the extra. Ascona is expensive and for the same money you often only get an average standard room at other hotels.

The hotel is a small boutique hotel and has small rooms, but the location and staff were unbeatable!

Benjamin could not have been more helpful. When he found out it was my wifes birthday he delivered cups of tea and cakes to the room free and sang her happy birthday in Swiss German! I needed a cord for my laptop unexpectedly and he arranged with his computer repairer to lend me one for the night.

The hotel is two steps from the lake and the rooms are clean and comfortable. There is an activity room with free internet and board games etc that you can use. They have a sauna which you can book privately and the hotel provide bath robes and chilled water for you.

As long as the size of the room is not an issue I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
