We stayed in the hotel in August 2016. Impressions twofold. On the one side, the hotel is old, the furniture a bit shabby, not everywhere in the room it was clean. But on the other side, a very friendly staff that is ready to help in any matter. The hotel has an underground parking lot, a lot of places, but...

We had a type of apartment for 4 people with two bedrooms. Quite good, friendly staff, average breakfast. Rooms a bit run down, swimming pool looked great. Considering 4star hotel, probably a bit over stated but on the other side, prices very moderate too.

Beautiful town on the lake and within walking distance to Locarno. Planned some day trips to Lugano and to Stresa, Italy. Breakfast was ample and included in the rates. Front desk service was very good. Rooms are a bit dated (70"s style) but really does not matter. Free outdoor parking if available.

The location is it bad, it's around a 5 min walk to get down to the water. The rooms are not bad, we had a room for 3 and there was plenty of space. The breakfast buffet was a little small, but the cheese selection was top notch. I would recommend this hotel, but don't expect a high class fancy...

I was greeted with a very warm welcome from staff at Sasso Boretto. The hotel has convenient underground parking - a good touch. Room was nicely fitted and very clean; the room's balcony gave way to awesome views of city and lake; perfect retreat for a couple. Location was really ideal as close to bus stop connecting to anywhere you...

Nice, clean hotel 7 walking minutes from the Piazza. Have their own parking. Rooms are european sized incl. TV, nicely furnished and clean. We had a nice large balcony (some of them with view of the city and lake). Staff is very friendly and welcoming. Excellent value. Can only recommend it.

Very friendly staff, always helpfull, funny, Italian! Very very clean rooms. Although the bathrooms were basic but good. Choose the first floor as the rooms open into a garden terrace overlooking the mountain. I was lucky enough to get this. The hotel is walking distance to the very small downtown. Close to a bus station that can connect you to...

I stayed at this hotel at the end of March 2015 and I have to say I have rarely felt as welcome and comfortable.

We stayed here for one night traveling back from Valle Maggia to Switzerland. The location is a little outside of the old town but easy to walk. It is also somewhat dated but the staff were friendly and helpful, the pool and rooms were clean and so I can't really fault it!
