We came for coffee and desserts during our short stay in Ascona. A great location with excellent view over the lake and promenade made our visit joyful. Coffees and desserts tasted great and service was friendly and attentive. Next time we should try to stay overnight.

Immaculate, friendly, great location. Andreas was a superb host and makes a great morning coffee. Free parking close to hotel. Room was spacious with a good layout and a nice sitting area. Morning buffet was tasty and satisfying. Great price for off season. Beds were comfortable, good linens and pillows. We will be back!
