Wonderful small boutique hotel with only a handful of rooms. Great location near Piazza Grande in the old town of Locarno. The very warm and friendly staff makes you feel very welcome. Every room is unique and has a completely different style. The rooms have no a/c thus nights can become pretty hot during summertime. Overall a great experience and... More

Great place! Historic building with its very own style. Interior design is mixed with old and modern items, individual flair. Outstandig breakfast, very charming owners and staff!!! We stayed in a big room. View to the narrow alleys of the citta vecchia.

Room was great. Great location. Downsides - no hot water first morning (we got it second morning); we had to take sponge baths to get clean. The host was there when we arrived and asked that we check in the next day. However, she wasn't there when we left for a day trip the next day, and she wasn't there... More

We spent 4 nights in Locarno and could not have asked for a better location and hotel. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, provided us with excellent dining and shopping recommendations. We had a great time and recommend this charming little hotel in the heart of Locarno to anybody.

Very arty, comfortable room in a boutique/cafe. Quietly situated near good restaurants in the old town. A bit of a panic when we arrived and everything was shut (cafe/boutique closed Sunday and Monday) but they soon arrived to check us in. Didn't book breakfast but we had a lovely coffee and biscotti on the house.

It's a combination of shop, cafe and boutique rooms. Good location in the old part of town, about 10 minutes walk from lakefront (you won't easily find it without directions). Lots of nice restaurants in easy walking distance. The owners are friendly, rooms are small but furnished in a fun way, and clean and bright. Reasonable value for Locarno, which... More

Antonella and Emanuele were charming, generous, and hosted us like family. The room was beautifully decorated and the spectacularly presented sumptuous breakfast was in a style and class different from any other breakfast. Location was excellent and the décor of art and plants was like being in a combination antique store and art gallery. Very strongly recommend.

The reviews were encouraging so I chose this B and B, but was disappointed from the get go. I entered the caffe? Shop? B and B? and there was no one at the desk in the clothes shop. I stepped down into the cafe and an older woman was arguing with 2 younger women. The older woman finally noticed me... More

We were looking for a one-night quiet stay in Locarno after our baby had been for three days at the local hospital for emergency. On the phone, the hotel staff said they could only take bookings made on the website. At the end of an online reservation process the note specified children were not welcome at the hotel. On the...

Cute boutique hotel in the middle of the old part of Locarno. Its a mixture of a b&b, a cafe and a florist! Very relaxing atmosphere. Public parking available around and there is also a parkhaus nearby. Staff were very friendly and hepful. Highly recommended.
