We have had a very pleasant stay at this beautiful place. The view is great, the hotel's location is very convenient, very close to the Finuculaire, so no need to drive or take a taxi to go to Locarno. The whole staff is very young and very kind. Thanks to Rea from the front desk we had wonderful dinners. She... More

We spent 3 nights at the Villa Orselina at the end of our trip to Switzerland. It was a very nice hotel. It had a nice small hotel resort feel. The staff was very friendly, and most spoke English (although around Locarno and Ascona we found it more difficult due to the lack of English spoken). Our room was very... More

Villa Orselina is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in! From it wonderful position above the lake, to the beautifully appointed rooms and gorgeous pool.

Nice place overlooking the lake. Booked two rooms for 6 people. Not even arrived that front desk was asking extra money (over the 1600 CHF a night already paid) for the extra bed !! Apparently Booking.com's fault. Kind of remark you get when staying in a two star hotel

The "Orselina" is an absolute gem. Wonderful, friendly staff, exquisite interior design, and the most amazing view of the "Lago Maggiore" lake. It has everything you ask of a 5 star hotel, indoor and outdoor pool, spa etc., but its true asset is the location and scenery. We had booked for only one night as we were passing through on...
