There is one major aspect my husband could not stop raving about is the bed the room had. Super comfortable bed ensured we got a good nights sleep and were fresh for walking around this gorgeous town. The breakfast was lovely with fresh breads, juices, cold meats and eggs, but the highlight here was their coffee. The coffee machine totally...

There isn't much to add to what people have already said. The hotel is modern and very clean. It is close to the train station (with some shopping by the train station) and close to the funicular, but still in a relatively quiet neighbourhood. The room was not overly large, but was completely adequate, with a good work desk and...

We spent 3 nights here and are glad we chose this hotel. Although the A/C is borderline, it is better than none (which apparently which is what the older hotels around here have). Wifi (free) worked well. The hotel is less than 2 blocks from the train station, the waterfront, the old town, and the funicular (or footpath) to Madonna...

Clean, nice staff, comfortable room. Near lake - but pretty steep uphill for two blocks. Very nice breakfast. Very good place for the price. I believe you can get a better view if pay a higher price for your room. If you take a cab to get your luggage up the hill to this place, get the price first -...

Stayed in room 20 for one night. The room is good although seats are uncomfortable. The hotel is well designed and feels fresh and new (contrary to most Swiss hotels). The staff is friendly and professional. Parking closeby is at a cost. Wifi is free and has good speed. The breakfast is very good. Recommended for stays in the area...

Happy with our end to end experience (check in, room, baby bed, breakfast, check out), location is good relative to train station and only a few minutes walk to the piazza grande. Lovely big balcony. So while we were happy, nothing stood out to give the 5th star.

I was totally impressed with the Garni Muralto. The location is ideal, being just a few minutes walk up a short hill from the station. The lady at reception was so friendly and helpful and in reception there are lots of brochures and leaflets available for things to do. My room was on the first floor at the rear of...

We stayed at the Garni Muralto for 8 nights. Our 4th floor room was spacious and clean, the queen bed was comfortable, and we enjoyed the balcony overlooking the lake and the mountains.

“Although the rooms with balconies supposedly have beautiful views of the mountains and lake, the first floor balcony definitely offers more of a street view. Request a room on a high floor if you want to admire the panorama.”
