Picture perfect location rigth in front of Lake Maggiore coupled with decent breakfast and rooms makes it worthwhile to stay here Natasha and team displayed very good understanding of hospitality guiding and supporting travellers wherever they could If one's taking the train to Lugano make sure you get down at Bellinzona and take the train to Locarno From Locarno one...

The breakfast was really good. I have been in some 3 and 4 stars hotels that does not have a breakfast like this. Lots of different bread, yogurts, fresh fruit, cereals... The bathroom was also very good for a 2 stars hotel. The view from the hotel room... Fantastic. No words

If you're thinking of going to the Ticino, the choice between Lugano, Locarno and Ascona is clear (at least in my opinion). Ascona is by far winner. My sweetheart and I just returned two days ago from a two-night (wedding-related) stay at the Piazza (in the "Olive" sister hotel just in the back of the overall complex - room #5).... More

We have been there twice and always the food was very good. The atmosphere is quiet and we have time to talk and rest. We recommend it if you are near by. I remember the waiter very friendly and the orange juice so fresh. We will be back if possible. Its avoid place to go as couple.

The address supplied sent us 5km down the road and we got little help after phoning the hotel 3 times. Our room was very small, but overlooks the beautiful lake. However, this is where the party revelers hang out all night and the shouting continued till 6am - when the breakfast clatter starts. The room was stifling hot and should... More

I spent two nights in a double for single use at the Piazza Ascona Hotel in June, and thought it quite affordable in comparison to other options in the area. I loved the location (just a few minutes walk from stop for the bus to Locarno and right by the boat dock) and I thoroughly enjoyed my views over the... More

We booked our hotel at the last minute and couldn't have been happier. We were originally scheduled to stay 6 nights in Lugano and cut it to 2 and spent 4 nights in Ascona instead. You can get a ferry from Locarno to Ascona and arrive in about 1/2 hour. Walking off the ferry you are about 60 feet to... More
