Switzerland doesn't often jump into mind when I'm plannig a summer holiday. When I told people where I was going, pretty well every one of them asked me if I was going skiing (in September?). I'd seen Ascona advertised in an evening paper and we decided to look into it. We found Art Hotel Riposo on-line and managed to snag the last room, and how lucky we turned out to be. We drove down through France and arrived to be confronted with a tiny alley to get up to the hotel and an even smaller entrance to the car park (I do have a small gripe here; I was charged £15 per day to park in the hotel car park. After what we paid for the hotel and dining, I think it's a slightly mean charge. Gripe over). Anyway, I got in safely and from that moment, until we left, the team there couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. 'Art' hotel sums it up. This place oozes charm. It's bright and colourful, but not gregarious. It's laid back, but always attentive and there has been no quarter given in making this place the little gem that it is today. Our room was large and clean. I would say that it got a bit hot at times. The owners are anti-air con. I can imagine it being difficult in July or August. The room cleaners made it brand new every day and there was nothing to be asked for. The whole hotel is clean and everywhere you look there is something new to see, or do. The roof is given over to a terrace with a very welcoming pool. Towels are on hand and there is a telephone and 'dumb-waiter' to summon drinks and snacks. In the afternoon, some small nibbles arrive for those feeling a little peckish pre dinner. On the ground floor there is the most amazing jazz bar where the brother and sister owners perform on a Saturday night (Ollie and the Fun Cats). It's just such a fun, relaxed place. And then there's the food! Breakfast is served in the dining room or on the terrace (we ate outside every day) and the staff are buzzing around to ensure that everything is just so. A very good breakfast. They do dinner from Wednesday to Saturday and, in the good weather, it's back upstairs to the roof terrace for dinner under the stars and a simply breathtaking view over Lake Magiore. I had my birthday there and the waitresses even sang to me. Food generally is quite expensive in Switzerland, but at least here we felt like we were getting good value. The jewels in this crown are the staff. From the hands-on owners right through the whole business, every one of the team is friendly and attentive. As a whole, probably the best team I have ever come across. Apparently, not many English people venture into this little corner of beauty, but they should. It's well worth a visit. We would definitely go back.

We only stayed one night as we were making our way from Zürich to Stresa Italy. The hotel was very charming with a great view. We knew there was no AC, so we managed for one night. It’s a lovely hotel but very expensive and no AC. I would go back again for the view alone, and very pleasant service from a friendly staff.

The Art Hotel Riposo is defenetly a place to return home, once been staying there. Individully designed rooms and room cleaning ever so considered make this hotel special amongst many great hotels in Ascona! Breakfast buffet offers fresh and local food ranging from eggs and cheese to fruits. Again one will find a very considered and motivated service team.... like in a big family. Of course, dinner on the roof terasse is a "must" and maybe you can find many star rated restaurants of top quality standart across the Ascona/ Locarno area. But there is one place, which offers top quality food and wine all rounded up by the same friendly, home feeling service team on the roof terasse.... Bravo Riposo!

This was our second visit to the Art Hotel Riposo and the Studer Family. And again, we were not disappointed in any respect. The room assigned to us was quaint, tastefully decorated, offering all necessities for a stay of three nights. As during our first stay we enjoyed dinner at the Restaurant, an experience our tastebuds will remember for some time. The wine recommended by Mr. Studer, was eminently suited to the dishes and a choice of Grappa's from their own vineyard provided the nightcap of nightcaps! And the breakfast: the variety and quality of breads, cheeses, meats, and home made jams provided a solid base for all activities on our schedule. Freshly, self squeezed orange juice and fresh fruit, Birchermuesli and yoghurts rounded off the affair! We'll be back!
