“Perfect location, very good value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

The hotel is very well located, just 50 meters from the Lake and very close to some good restaurants and pizzerias. The hotel is very modern and the rooms are very comfortable and clean. With the windows closed you will not ear any outside noise.

The room has a very odd bathroom where there is no toilet brush, there is no hand towel and the door needs some firm pull to close.

There are plenty of channels on its 32 inch flat TV but sadly all are local only a couple of news channels in English (nothing too different from the rest of the Hotels in Europe).

Like all Accor group this IBIS hotel offers everything as a extra price, there is a car park but unless you book it in advance there won't be much change of you getting a parking space. If you do you will need to fork 16 Swiss francs per day.

The breakfast is 15 francs per day but I must say they are worth the money you get a reasonable buffet breakfast will ham, cheese, all sorts of machine type coffees, orange and mix fruit juices, local bread, croissants, muesli, yogurt, fruit salad etc. For this part of Switzerland it was a very good value for money experience.

You have free wifi and an acceptable speed, good perk. Ther is also a small gym room and free sauna for those who like to relax.

Just outside the hotel we found a pizzeria called Universo that do some of the best pizzas we had in a long time and a good price too. Ask for the normal size ones and you will be surprized.
The Staff is very helpful.

Overall it was a very good stay we will stay there again when revisiting the town in the future.

Room Tip: Room 423 was very quiet as it was facing the back wher there was a car park. But I'm guessing th...

We stayed here for one night en route to Italy and had previously booked a room which was a relief as we were seriously delayed by road works on the approach to the Gotthard Tunnel. This is a small 2 storey modern hotel near a quiet residential area. It provides clean, comfortable and basic accommodation with a good breakfast including d-i-y freshly squeezed orange juice. The only snag is the parking but there is on street parking close-by. Friendly staff.

This hotel does exactly "What it says on the tin". Comfortable bed, good location in Locarno, nice staff, free WiFi. It is super easy to get to all the sites in Locarno from here, and it is on the right side to be able to walk over to Ascona, about 40 minutes (which is REALLY worth a look).

This Hotel has a new, fresh and hype look. Definitely a great Hotel for a good night sleep. It has just the right amenities needed for a good night sleep. The only inconvenience could be parking. However, you can park at night time in the street for free until 8AM.

Hotel was close to the downtown, lake and train station, making walking with luggage very easy. Rooms were very nice for the price.Hotel building was very new, as were the rooms. Modern, convenient bathrooms. Had a bar and resturant associated with it.

I'm lucky enough to work for a company in the close vicinity, Locarno is a beautiful place, the hotel is positioned perfectly for exploring the lake, cafe bars and restaurants all a short walk away. Also ideal for exploring the cable car up into the mountains. Good location. And good value, rooms are basic, but spotlessly clean and comfortable. Breakfast is very basic.

this hotel is in a very good location to visit Locarno.
Its style is simple, rooms are clean and silent
I find the breakfast at 15chf too expensive! And there is no tea/coffee facilities in the bedroom.
I was there for a night only, in sum I had a good stay, but nothing special
