The photos don't do this hotel justice (in not the normal sense). The pool is not some gigantic blue lagoon and the rooms (in our experience) have more of a youth hostel feel. That being said, the breakfasts were excellent and the location was fine for catching buses to head off exploring Locarno and its environs. The WIFI was very sketchy and the satellite TV felt like something from the 1980s. The key for the safe must have come from the Tower of London.

Spacious & comfortable room with a balcony in a nice hotel. The director/proprietor, Mr. Surinder Singh, is very helpful & friendly. The location is in a residential area. Not very close to the city centre or the train station or the lakefront. Breakfast was fairly basic. And for some inexplicable reason, there was no toaster available.

Very nice accommodation and setting. Extremely good value for the price and an amazing breakfast. The staff were very professional and a compliment to the hotel. The room was spacious and modern, air conditioning would be a nice addition but we were there on the hottest day of the year and the fan in the room was a nice addition.

Parking was a bit a challenge. Spaces are narrow. A little off the beaten track, but accessible by Free Bus Transport. 눇Large, clean, comfortable room. We initially booked a room without a balcony, but once we arrived we upgraded to a balcony room for a small price increase. Balcony overlooked the pool and city toward the lake. Nice breeze to keep the room cool. Reception staff gave us free bus passes to use. It was holiday, so the bike shop was closed, but I think guests could use the bikes for free, or a small fee. After a long day of driving we wanted to stretch our legs, so we walked to Ascono...about 20 minutes. Took the boat ride to Locarno, then the bus back to Garni Nessi. Room was quiet, breakfast was good. Elevator lift was not working on one floor the day we arrived. But by the next morning it was back in working order.
