The people working at the hotel could not have been more helpful and the free breakfast was a perfect way to start the...

It's not a large hotel. It shares space with a high-brow watch/jewelry store in the same block and it took us a couple of minutes to find the entrance. We stayed 5 nights. The lobby is small but the personnel is friendly and multi-lingual. Check-in was a breeze. Our room was on the 3rd floor. It was a good size,...

This place is clean. The beds are comfortable. Beautifully situated in the heart of Locarno. Right in the middle and close to everything! I enjoyed my stay here tremendously. You will not be sorry if you decide to stay here. There's a casino right across the street as well as the lake and close to wonderful restaurants and plenty of...

Throughout our stay it was clear that the staff and management both wanted to make this the best little hotel it can possibly be. In all important ways they have succeeded. It's a short walk from the station, and just one street back from the lakeside, so central, but not too noisy. When we first arrived, the reception staff were...

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...

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...
