Reviewed March 1, 2012

I would definitely recommend staying here while in Ascona. My husband and I stayed here with our baby. It was the first time we stayed in a hotel with her and the staff was so friendly to us. The hotel is in a perfect location right on the lake and the rooms are clean and comfortable.

I am a former corporate executive, now living in CH. I have over 1,000 hotel stays' experience throughout America, Europe, and India.
My wife, I and two daughters spent two weekday nights in mid-October at the Piazza Ascona. We cannot make enough positive remarks about our visit. Excellent and friendly attention, trip assistance, and suggestions for sightseeing by front desk staff. Very good food and service in the restaurants - very nice breakfast buffet. Our two rooms on 2nd floor offered wonderful views of the lake with small balconies. Rooms were clean, comfortable, and well appointed. We will return to this location again soon, and plan to make it an annual destination.

Friendly, convenient, modern, economical. Beautiful quiet location on lakefront promenade directly opposite boat landing. Elevator. Rooms comfortable but very spare - think dormitory, not luxury: bed, table, spacious wardrobe. Many cable TV stations but most in German, French, or Italian. No English language newspapers in hotel during my winter visit, but a newstand is a few doors down the street. Free highspeed internet via ethernet in rooms; WIFI in lobby. Small modern baths with walk-in shower, no tub; liquid soap but no other amenities. Some rooms have nice balcony w reclining chair and table overlooking lake and mountains. Nice breakfast buffet with juices, cold cuts, cheeses, breads and croissants, yogurt, muesli; egg on request. Italian restaurant with outdoor seating on promenade. Free parking at large surface lot a half block away.

We stayed in the hotel owned "Casa della Olive" which is a small add-on property just around the corner from the hotel. The Albergo Piazza au Lac is located right on the lake front, in front of the main boat doc. The Casa delle Olive is located around the corner from the hotel in the old town. It has a very nice little courtyard, very small but clean and renovated rooms. The beds were comfortable, and they were willing to put in an additional bed for our 4 year old at no charge. The bathrooms were modern and clean but basic. This property has NO view...our window looked out on to the wall of the building across the small cobblestone street. We stayed here knowing that we wanted a good price and that we would enjoy the lake view by spending time outside. If you are wanting a view, do not book this place. Breakfast was nice and included breads, cold cut meats and cheeses, yogurts, cereals....typical European breakfast. Overall great location, average to above average accomidations, good price, good breakfast, great time in Ascona. It was also only about a 5-10 minute walk through the little town from the bus stop.
