Ideal location, close to both the lake shore and the city centre. Friendly welcome, first thing you see when entering the lobby is fresh water and a basket of apples. Good room, larger than in many Ibis hotels. The bathroom is very good, small but fonctional, there is all you need and the shower is of good size. Impeccable cleaning....

At the entrance You find free lemon water and apples. This unpretentious hotel has comfortable, clean rooms with very comfortable beds and clean bathrooms. The suites at the top of the building are incredible (with kitchen corner), one has even a big terrace! The staff is extremely friendly, quick and professional!

Nice location close to some great restaurants. Hotel is clean and the staff is extremely friendly. Would recommend to anyone looking for a comfortable short stay of 1-3 nights. Rooms are small but efficient, the lease is only a block away with breathtaking views.

The hotel is very well located, it's just a few steps from the Lago Maggiore, the city centre and the Madonna del Sasso monastery, you can have a very nice walk there.

Good location, basic room but clean. Didn't have breakfast so cannot comment. Shower didn't drain but assume an isolated issue. Parking not included and hotel car park over booked so had to pay expensive parking in nearby casino. Would recommend if you are travelling on budget.

Good quality in a perfect location, close to the lake/ lido, city centre, piazza grande. In summer book well in advance, it gets very busy during the film festival. You can meet producers, actors, movie directors. Breakfast is ok, the room is ibis standard.

Teeny tiny room w/ queen bed and no view, which was OK for ~150fr per night. By "toiletries" provided, it means combo hand/face wash in the shower. No mini fridge, shower changes temperature when someone else in the hotel flushes the toilet. Good location. Rooms look cheap, towels are scratchy, overall what you'd expect for the price.

Thank you for your comments regarding your stay at ibis Locarno. The hotels of the ibis brand normally don't have minibars in the room, but bar service 24h / 24. At Locarno, we have a free bottle of water for all guest. We have already taken contact with our laundry to improve the quality, and our technician checked the problem...

Thumbs up for the huge room (got a suite since we are a family and needed space for four) and the central location. It even had a kitchenette with everything you needed in terms of dishware to cook and eat a meal, and a big table with plenty of space - a good alternative to eating out every night with...

“The quiet side of the hotel is the one facing the mountains (opposite to the lake side)”

“Probably does not matter. The windows are well isolated.”
 of 5 bubbles zexplore, Sep 16, 2014 | Read review
“Upper floors less noisy, but hotel lies within a quiet traffic area and is well sound-proofed. Air conditioning is almost non-audible everywhere in the hotel. Only bad point is the lack of car parking as the underground park is too small, but then Locarno is notoriously bad for parking! Hotel parking is cheap by other city car parks.”
