We made a last minute trip to ascona with our 2 small children (3 and 14 months) When we arrived we went to the tourist info. The friendly lady there called around for us to see what was available even though they were closing and she had to stay a bit late. She gave us a few options and we ended up booking this hotel based on local and the fact that they had a heated pool. And it was 4 star. It was getting late and we needed a place quick! But we should have looked at TA first!
This hotel is OLD. And yes like other reviews it is more like 2 maybe 3 stars. Who gives out stars anyway??? When we first walked in our instinct was to turn around and walk out again. But with 2 hungry tired kids we decided to stay.
Room was dated. Bed was 2 singles pushed together. The electrical outlets where in full reach of children and over loaded. Windows where dirty and floor had big stains but the rest seemed ok.
Beds are very very "firm". No WIFI in room. We had a corner room at the front of the hotel. Nice view! But patio furniture is about as cheap as it gets. The room was quiet,even though the hotel was fully booked I didn't hear other guest. But you can hear loud cars/motos on street. Due to old windows.
All of this would be ok for me if the price was good. But it was 310 Swiss francs ( about 250 euros)!
Breakfast is simple Swiss style but good. The 3 best things about this hotel … location, front desk people are very friendly and the sun loungers in the cute garden.
