We loved the hotel. Me and my wife just stayed one night but we would spend more if we had the time. Awesome location and nice service. As for the price, we found a good deal on Booking so it was better than regular price.

Great little hotel, right on Lago Maggiore, in gorgeous little Ascona. Very reasonably priced (by Swiss standards), includes breakfast and has friendly, helpful, English-speaking staff. Had a great stay here with my dad -- it's about 40 feet from the ferry to Isole di Brissago, which I'd also recommend. Highly recommend!

Hotel is nicely situated facing the Lake Maggiore offering a fabulous view of the lake from my hotel window and when having breakfast. The room I had was just alright with a small shower that was quite outdated.Warm days can be a challenge as there is no air conditioning or fan and becomes unbearable when humid. Dinner service was very... More

Nice location but no parking next to the Hotel. They have available parking space to an extra cost around 7minutes walk away which was ok for us. Our room was very clean and very good for a 3star Hotel and the 4 of us had enough space. Nice lake view. Breakfast like a 3star, had all we needed.

The location, naturally, is superb. The facilities are also good... But: Why waste all this with VERY questionable service? The overly 'sugary' reception was already a warning signal. And, sure enough, A/C in our room did not initially work. Or: he asked about wifi, but did not hand out the necessary code. And: once you went again to get the... More

Many times guest during Ascona Jazz Festival, this typically Swiss hotel, is charming, comfortable and just right in front of the Lago Maggiore, with marvelous views, windows opened to superb music every day... I return year after year.

Hotel is located just next to lake, staff is friendly, price is affordable, rooms are just renovated and very well equipped. Only minus is internet connection which logs you out continuously. I can definitely recommend this hotel! This is good choice for couples, families and why not business also.

In early October 2015 we spent 3 days and 2 nights in a Ascona, Switzerland at this hotel. Our initial online search showed this hotel in the 3 star range. Not true!

I went during the jazz festival and wanted a quiet room so they put me in the annexe, having checked with me first though, as I had originally asked for a lake view room. The annexe had no aircon in rooms unfortunately, which would have been great during the heatwave we were having! However, the annexe had nice gardens and... More
