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.

The hotel rooms are very clean and spacious, however no hangers in the bathroom. The staff are very friendly too. Hotel is located centrally and easy to go for walks along the promenade close by and to the piazza. This hotel offered parking upon reservation and we were not disappointed. The breakfast had a good choice of cold cuts, fresh bread and patisseries and professional coffee machines. Since we had a dog we had breakfast outside on the terrace but it was a lovely day so we didn't mind. However note that dogs are not allowed in the breakfast area because of the open buffet. We will definitely reconsider to stay at this lovely hotel.

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.
