The hotel is in a great location for literally everything you would want to see in Locarno. The staff are friendly, and try their best to cater for guests' needs. The breakfast buffet is good. You should book a room with a balcony, as the non-balcony rooms are a bit claustrophobic and not the nicest. The hotel is quite busy, with a number of groups staying there when we were there. Note that there is only a limited amount of free parking available, and the other parking is CHF 12/night.

Good location, 5min (uphill) walk from the main train station, 10min to the old town. The staffs were very helpful - they helped us make reservations for dinner and lunch on 2 separate occasions. Breakfast is standard. The room was pretty standard: bed, bathroom, WiFi, shower gel, welcome biscuit on pillow on arrival. No complementary water or bar snack. For those who drive, there can be cheaper options (with possibly better views) further away from the centre.

Just a brief one-night stay here. It's a short walk up a hill from the station and only a few minutes back down to the town centre and lake. My room at the back was fine and did the job. Good WiFi. Included buffet breakfast was impressive. Staff very helpful and multi-lingual. Enjoyed it here.

We had to book a hotel at the last minute in Locarno and we chose this motel due to convenience. Pros - close proximity to the buses, trains and restaurants and cafes and lovely staff Cons- unless you book a balcony room you will find yourself in a very tiny room, I personally found it a bit claustrophobic

We had a very good experience with our 5 days stay at the Garni Muralto Hotel. It's good location, a few minutes walk from the lake and Piazza Grande, with well maintained facilities, large and comfortable rooms. The staff was friendly and helpful, we even received a free upgrade at check-in. Breakfast was good, so was the Internet connectivity. Parking comes at a fee, reservation is needed, but it'a a plus in a city popular with tourists.

We rode our motorcycle in 30 degree C temperatures from the Italian Dolomites and were exhausted when we eventually arrived at the modern looking Hotel Garni Muralto in Locarno. The young receptionist was lovely, welcoming, helpful and very professional. The bike was parked up in the Hotel's secure garage (at no extra cost) and we relaxed in our very nicely furnished room - immaculately clean - our small balcony offered a very limited view of the far-off lake. We ate at a pizzeria that the Hotel owns down in the beautiful town Square - it was very busy and the food was OK - nothing special, but it was reasonably priced. If in the area, I would certainly stay at this Hotel again.

We had two rooms at the end of the hall with a common door which made it a kind of suite. Perfect for us. The staff (different person at front desk each day) was very nice and helpful. Rooms were very nice, good shower. Well located, a short walk down to the lake or other parts of Locarno/Muralto.

We have just returned from a weeks holiday staying at this hotel and I have to say that I was very pleasantly surprised after some booking difficulties. After a very short walk from the station we were greeted by the very pleasant staff who were extremely accommodating. Our room whilst not luxurious was decorated to a high standard, totally adequate for our needs and very spacious with a large bathroom and balcony supplied with sun beds. The breakfast served from 06.45 was of high quality. All the staff are cheerful and eager to offer any assistance requested. Overall a great 3 star hotel with air conditioning and we will return next year.

We had triple room 117, and lucked out with a view of the lake between the buildings opposite. Although not cheap, the hotel is "reasonable" for Switzerland and is comfortable enough. I would advise booking a parking space in the hotel garage - well worth the extra money. Locarno is a lovely little town, which we would have liked to explore more - but we only stayed for one night.
