We stayed here for one week. Hosts are very helpful, cheery but unobtrusive so not always asking 'what are you doing today' or 'where have you been today' and will engage with you if you invite them. Our room was at the top of some stone steps and overlooked the small courtyard where breakfast and dinner is served. If rain... More

Great location! Chris and Stephanie are lovely. Our room (#1) was unexpectedly large and quite comfortable. The breeze was enough to keep the room cool, along with the ceiling fan. Breakfast was good, the bed was comfortable. Cute neighborhood, easy walk from the bus stop. Definitely recommend!

Just off of the main promenade you will find Antica Posta quietly sitting on a cobbled street just waiting to welcome you. I stayed for two nights with my dog on the way to Italy. Our room overlooked the courtyard, was spotlessly clean with a good strong shower and comfy bed. I found the hotel easily, unpacked my bags and... More

I read a review which said something like "a restaurant with rooms" and I think that's a good summary. Anywhere else and I would say it was greatly overpriced, but this was my first time in Switzerland and I was prepared to grin and bear it. There are steep outside steps to the rooms and ours was clean and comfortable... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel last week. The owners Stephanie and Christoph are delightful The hotel is very well managed. We ate one night and the food was very good, however the breakfasts in my opinion lack imagination. Even allowing the hotel is in Switzerland it is quite expensive for what it is.

This is a terrific hotel, in the centre of Ascona. The staff are absolutely charming and our room was very large, bright and clean.
