Just spent Valentine's day in the leopard's suite at Caffe dell'Arte. We liked:
- the fabulous breakfast with a de-li-cious home-made yogurt, wonderful breads and jams, cold meats and cheese, fresh fruit, and great coffee
- the location in the middle of the old town, walk to the lake, restaurants, shops...etc...Madonna del Sasso is worth a visit
- the beautiful XIVth century renovated, stone building
- the friendliness of the two sisters who run the place. We casually reported a problem of hot water pressure and got sincere apologies and a gift from the art store in ground floor of the b&b in return.
- the simple but spacious room with a separate sitting room (could sleep a 3rd person) on the 2nd floor (please note there's no elevator). Our mattress was a bit too soft to our taste and the TV was a little outdated (but who wants to stay in the room and watch TV when the town is so cute anyways!?!). Overall, we were very happy with our choice in Locarno and would recommend to anyone looking for a b&b with character and fabulous breakfast.
