The location is perfect, away from the crowds yet very close to everything with a short stroll along the waterfront. The breakfast was great, in a room with great views, you could eat inside or outside. Did not dine at the hotel as the prices were a little too high, and there were a lot of options close by. I...

On a recent trip stayed at Hotel Eden. It is very well located and I was lucky to have a room with a balcony on the lake. The views are to die for. Service is good and staff is very kind. Breakfast is also sufficiently good. Overall clean hotel. The downside is that the hotel is old and badly needs...

This hotel is very comfortable and lays on a lovely breakfast. The perk was definitely a balcony onto the lake from the room - very peaceful! The downside was that my non smoking room smelt of smoke and the two pillows were as hard as rock. The hotel is in need of a little updating in my opinion but that...

The Hotel is splitted in two sections. One section is Close to the lake, the other one is more distant from the lake. The Hotel is clean, but the furnishings are a sort of outdated. The staff is friendly and supporting.

An ideal location on the Swiss side of the lake. The hotel has been through some renovations and they did a great job. If there is availability be sure to ask for a lakeside suite and you will not want to leave your room! Waking up each morning to the sun rising over the mountains surrounding the lake is divine....

This is a beautiful old hotel in a stunning location on the lake. The bar terrace and sunbathing area is fantastic. The staff is quick and friendly, the indoor pool is warm and clean with a water fall at the end and a whirlpool spa at the other end. They have two dry saunas and a steam room as well....

The most appealing part of this hotel is its location on the quiet side of Lake Locarno looking across to the sides of main busy corniche. A nice bar is situated right on the lakefront. But the hotel is divided into two parts with a main thoroughfare in between. Underground passage links the two. The view is certainly majestic from...

Good location, but the place definitely needs some renovation. Sound proofing of the balconies was nearly non-existent. The Minibar fridge acted like a little heater and seemed at least 30 years old. The staff was quite friendly.
