This hotel should have a lot going for it. It is in a lovely central location in a beautiful resort. However, despite having been promised a room with a view we were given a ground floor room (No 56)with five windows, ALL overlooked. The bathroom was even within reach of a public pathway. The room was dark with no comfortable seating, the door to the bathroom needed two adults to slide it, but particularly you had to close all the curtains before you could change., unless you wanted to be seen from the hotel restaurant, the garden, the footpath, the public street, or the apartments opposite. We were reluctantly given a better room for our last three nights. The whole hotel is slanted towards guests fron Germany. The language spoken, and the hotel notices, menues etc are in German. Not what you expect in the Italian-speaking Ticino! The junior staff were genuinely pleased to be spoken to in Italian. There were good points though. The breakfasts were consistly good and the Sunday Jazz night was excellent. Overall,however, we hope not to visit the Riposa again!
