This is reasonably priced by Swiss standards! It's a comfortable hotel...the rooms are fine...but the real selling points are it's perfect location in the centre of Bellinzona and it's friendly, helpful staff

We (a family with 2 teenage children) had only ever been through Bellinzona to change trains, but made the very sensible decision this time to break a Swiss-Italian journey overnight in the town. It's stunning, nestling below 3 wonderful mediaeval castles. The Hotel Croce Federale itself is at the base of the cliffs on which one castle sits, right in...

I spent two nights at Croce Federale in Bellinzona. I not only loved Bellinzona but I have rarely run across a nicer, more helpful and more accommodating staff than we had at Croce Federale. Olivia, the manager and her son, Elia, we incredible. We asked for a room for four people (two couples) as we were on a budget. Booking.com...

I went to Bellinzona for a wedding and I needed a place where to sleep for 2 nights. I've already been to the restaurant one year ago (which by the way is delicious!), but it was the first time to the hotel. It is well situated, right in the middle of the city and 5 minutes walk from the train...

We were 5 friends. The 4 orders that we made were just right in quantity for us. Seafood risotto and spaghetti bolognese were delicious. Grilled vegetables with some cheese on top were alright. The beefsteak was what we liked the least, being a little tough and not so flavorful. I had caramel ice cream to end the meal and this...

For a start, Bellanzona is lovely. An old town with few tourists, it's a beautiful place. The hotel is nice, not new but in good condition. For me it was a comfortable stop at a good price. The room is small, and so is the bathroom, but quite adequate. It was quiet and a good sleep. I ate at the...
