If I could 6 stars I would. This Hotel is just superb! From start to finish! Their staff is among the best. Bending over backwards to help. I phoned initially and then via emails. They responded quickly and willingly. Gabriel, Jasmine, Doris, Francisca, and all the staff we encountered were just wonderful! Would highly recommend this place and already have.... More

beautiful hotel nicely located at the lago maggiore. The rooms are rather small, but of good quality and nice design. The breakfast buffet is also small but well done! We had lunch at the restaurant on the terrace with great view and were not disappointed! Unfortunately there is no sun lounger area, but you can set yourself up right in... More

We enjoyed a great, albeit short stay at the Giardino. We can't wait to go back. Hospitality was excellent. Stag was extremely friendly and the breakfast buffet was super good. The room was a bit small but very modern and provided everything we wanted. Definitely on our short list for next time we are in the area.

We stayed here for 5 nights and loved the quiet and beautiful location on the water. While our room was very small, it was cleaned at least twice a day and the time we spent in it was very comfortable -- we loved the double duvet covers at night. We used the bicycles provided by the hotel to travel into... More

We did stay for two nights in this fantastic and peaceful place which is directly located at the lake Maggiore in Ticino, Switzerland. All staff has been extremely friendly and attentive. Interior is very modern and warm. Rooms are great with nice bathroom. All very very clean. Will definitely return.

We stayed in Locarno at the new affiliated property. It's right on the lake and they have bicycles available to ride along the lake to downtown. The restaurant was excellent. I had a veal chop that was melt-in-your-mouth tender. Breakfast was included and outstanding. Great view of the lake from the restaurant and patios.

Have been there for the first time. The Giardino is a very small and familiary boutique hotel with only very kind and helpfull staff! They are doing everything for its customers, even if you're coming too late for breakfast ... they are like magicians! The rooms are little bit small...but really nice. Just one point: If sou're by car, it's... More

Quality of life, sustainability and a friendly service underpin the concept and image of this Personal Retreat. The hotel forgoes convention and stars, but plays up intimacy with 14 individually designed rooms and one suite that invite to dream and relax.
