Wonderful location, but the mattresses are worn out,overdue for change. If you like a backache ,that is the place to come. Carrying the luggage up several steps to the reception is very inconvenient. We would never stay in this hotel again.

We went there for a family weekend. When I got sick with a fever the week before, they refused to cancel our reservation. So we went, and expected a room with a lake view as this is promised on the website. We got a small room with an extra (third) bed. We had asked for a family room for 3...

The location is superb and the staff is very friendly. The rooms are ok with carpets and the balcony towards the piazza are fantastic. The breakfast is very nice and the indoor pool and the fitness are nice at a rainy day. We have been here a couple of times and will be back.

We arrived from Milan, tired and jet-lagged. Simone made us feel ver welcome and she carefully showed us the beautiful hotel. We were impressed by the chic, modern vibe, the pool, workout area and saunas. The breakfast was superb. The 24 hour coffee/tea area plus the open bar and lounge were appreciated.

Wonderful boutiquish hotel on Lago Maggiore to get away from it all! Easy to find, situated at the village/lake entry. Medieval style architecture inside, with large outdoor patio, breakfast area, indoor swimming, sauna, and exercise facility. There's also a reading lounge area in the historic tower section with a guest computer. And just steps from the lakefront, most rooms have...

Stayed here for 3 nights for the Ascona Jazz Festival. What is remarkable about this hotel is that it seems to function with about 5 staff! That is not to say it is a bad hotel; far from it in fact. The staff are all very helpful and friendly, and Simone deserves a special mention for her help in guiding...

I didn't spend a lot of time in my room over the course of three days, but when I did, the lodging was great. The bed was comfortable, WiFi quick and consistent, and the view was spectacular. I did not take advantage of the indoor pool, but the spa was very relaxing. The hotel staff were very professional and assisted...

Located on the piazza in Ascona, our room overlooked the piazza and looked out onto Lake Maggiore. The room was very comfortable and spacious enough. Staff was very nice and professional. The breakfast was very good, but the coffee machine confusing with no directions in English. Wi-fi access was very good, always a plus. Liked the fact that they have...

“1.Ask for a lake view room.If going during the Jazz festival though be prepared for music to go on until about 1am ( there is a stage just across from the hotel). 2.Take non-iron clothes.....”

“All rooms face the lake, so it doesn't matter which one you get! The a/c was very effective in the 36C temperatures. The shower room was small but OK.”
