We stayed here for one night while seeing Tom Jones playing at the Moon and Stars music festival. The hotel is a very short walk from Locarno train station, and also a very short walk from the Piazza Grande where Moon and Stars is hosted. So it was a lovely short stroll back to the hotel (with a gelati) after... More

Only sheer curtains, no opaque ones, with the window facing east. Poorly working AC, and extremely hot fridge we had to unplug. "Lake View" room was incredibly small and overlooks a block of buildings and restaurants - and a sliver of the lake.

DOS : 13 to 16/6/16. This bed and breakfast establishment is situated on the edge of the central pedestrianised square of Locarno within easy reach of the railway station, the boat embarcation stages, and restaurants of all types to suit varying pockets. The only drawback to its location is that it does not have its own parking and it costs... More

Location: excellent, right by the town centre and lake, 3 min walk from train station, opposite big car park and 10/15 min walk from lido Hotel: very basic rooms but perfectly clean. Worth booking a room with view of the lake and even a little balcony! Breakfast: ok, nothing phenomenal but does the job and is included, which is a... More

Stayed here for two nights and was overall impressed. The location is good, only 5 minute walk to the train station, and 3 minutes to the lake. Also shops, restaurants, a square and a supermarket 7 mins away. Hotel was clean, staff helpful and spoke good English. Room was big for a budget room, twin beds which were clean with... More

Great location with only minutes to all sites and restaurants. The staff was very friendly and welcoming and made our stay worth remembering. Nice and clean rooms! We had a good nights sleep in a comfortable bed. Locarno is well worth a visit!!

We booked direct with the hotel to find best family room optionl as travelling with our kids. Staff very helpful. Two rooms interconnected was a good option and our room even overlooked the lake. It was very comfortable, central with parking nearby. We wished we had stayed longer as locarno is lovely.

Having stayed at most of the hotels located very near or on the Piazza Grande, this is by far the best. Located a stone's throw away from both the main train station and boat launch (seasonal) in Locarno, this lovely family-run hotel offers friendly, comfortable and very clean accommodation with easy access to all major attractions. A fresh and ample... More

A great place, with a perfect location, a 5 min walk to the train station, right front of the lake and on the street leading to the main square. The rooms are small, but perfectly adequate. I cannot recall an iron in the room, and there is no mini bar or alcohol available to buy at the hotel. The best... More

Stayed here for 3 nights while we went to some concerts at the annual Moon & Stars Festival. Perfect location. Good shopping just outside the hotel as well. Will definitely be back for next year's concerts. Very friendly and helpful multilingual staff.
