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! The room could not have been more beautiful almost luxurious. The bath room was great, one of our primary criteria with any hotel. The room was quiet with... More

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

My husband and I stayed here and we cherished every second. The hotel is beautiful and the location perfect. The service is wonderful. Breakfast was delicious. Plus, we borrowed two bikes for free. We love Ascona!

The Tamaro is a lovely family-run hotel located right on Lago Maggiore in the center of Ascona. It has tons of personality; the rooms vary in size and style, the dining area and terrace are lovely and breakfast is very good. Half-pension that includes dinner is a great option too.

A quaint, good old-fashioned European hotel located in front of the Lake Maggiore, hotel Tamaro is one of the less busy hotels along the promenade. Rooms could have been recently upgraded as it had air-conditioning which was great in the 35deg heat and a clean, bright bathroom. On the contrary, the reception needs some major upgrading as it's old and... More
