“Very good standard hotel in a great location”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

We recently spent one night here and were given a lake view room as it wasn't busy,we think that there is normally an extra charge for this.The view is worth it if you do have to pay!!
The rooms are a little tired but we couldn't fault anything otherwise. The Breakfast was an extensive buffet even though there didn't seem to be many staying!!

Room Tip: Lake view is great!

Another Locarno Film Festival, another hotel; I've been here 6 times over 10 years or so and so far this is my favorite hotel. But you must be on the lakeside and reserve early. There is even free parking if you come here by car.

Room Tip: Lakeside room by all means, otherwise you have train noise!

Stayed for a night on Business

Excellent view of Alphs and a Big lake from this Hotel room.
A neat and small Room. Unlike most of the Hotels in Switzerland B/F is not included in the Room Tariff.

Check out not possible before 7AM . Put me inconvenience to catch a train .

Room Tip: Rooms are very small . Get a room facing the lake

Nice place if you are going for business in Locarno. Had a mini-suite bedroom with a living-room area composed of a leather sofa and armchair, then the bed area with a large bathroom (with hair in the sink, but the house-cleaner was kind so I forget this detail.) The plus is the air con in the room really important when it is 34 degres outside. The stupid thing is that you have 10 car places for the whole hotel. The direction should organize something with the police for the guests to use (at special price) car places in front of the hotel or in the street behind. Didn't go to the breakfast.

The location is great - just 20 meters in front of the lake. we had a room with a lovely view on the sea. rooms are spaciouse and very clean. the atmosphere of the hotel is like it is in large hotels with lots of rooms. i hardly recomment this hotel for price sensitive short trips to locarno. parking is easy, the hotel owns a parking space and in front of the hotel are lots of parking spaces for 7 chf/day.

The hotel is good, rooms are okay, they are clean and have everything you need there. The balconies are nice too, try to get a lake view if you can. This hotel is not going to amaze you, but it is comfortable and overall good.
The internet however is 15 francs for 3 hrs....which is expensive as everything in Switzerland.

Room Tip: On the first floor you get a nice big balcony where you can lie in the sun, however you cannot see m...

We decided spontaneously to visit Locarno on the weekend. Due to the season the choice of Hotels was limited. The location of the Hotel, next to the lake, the landing and the center of the city, helped to make the decision. To take the breakfast on the terrace with the beautiful view of the lake puts you in the right mood for exploring Locarno and its environment. The room we stayed in was quite, spacious and very clean. The SPA area offers wet and dry sauna and basic amenities. The Hotel was remodeled some time ago is and it starts to show. The personnel were very attentive and helpful except for the Management. I had to work over the weekend. From prior stays in Ramada facilities I presumed that the Wireless access is for free. I wanted to understand the policy and asked the local Management to call me, which did not happen during the stay. While checking out I learned from the receptionist that the local Management decided to not call back since it is not in a position to discuss the company policy. To better understand the heterogeneous approach of the Group to Wireless offers, I called the Group Management, explained the situation and was offered reimbursement of the costs. A letter of apology from the local Management was sent subsequently as well. Even so all actions taken afterwards are much appreciated, I personally think, the standard of a 4star Hotel includes free Wireless access and that you can expect to be called back.
