If you like offbeat. This is it. Hotel reception is inside store owner runs. The owner is absolutely wonderful, a delightful woman willing to do anything to help. Friendly, my G-d. She's more like a family member than a vendor of services. And she had her niece and nephew helping

Is parking easily available? If not, is there valet parking? We can stay only one night, and we do not want to handle parking, luggage, etc., on our own.
Dear Suzane S, thank you for your message. Caffè dell'Arte Boutique Rooms is in the heart of the Old Town of Locarno. Unfortunately a valet parking is not avaialble, however we can offer you a parking spot very close to Caffè dell'Arte. You can leave your lugagge at the reception and then park the car with no hassle. The parking is 100m away. I hope this helps Kind regards Emanuele

"every room is a jewel on its own :)"
"No bad rooms that we could tell. A few are on the back side, away from the street."
"We had the room Reve d'armour venise which was lovely"
"Every room has a special design :)"
"Rooms not facing the street may be quieter but the street noise did not bother us - very little traffic (one-way narrow street)."
$123 - $195 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
