I’ve stayed here several times always a great stay
I’ve stayed here several times now, always a great stay. I Highly recommend this hotel 100% My only mentioning for the Americans, if they’re not aware, it does not have air-conditioning like a lot of European/Swiss hotels. If you’re staying in the summer it might be a bit hot for you . But they do have a fantastic pool

Good hotel with nice views.
Good hotel, my second stay there. Clean relatively comfortable room, Nice balcony, decent breakfast, very nice pool in the summer. My only complaint there was quite a bit of mold in the shower ( why I put clean rating on OK). Definitely stay here again. There’s Also a very good Greek Takeaway just around the corner.

A bit of a walk to the main square, but doable. Breakfast could be improved by variety, but not bad. The view both from the bedroom and from the pool were stunning

Outstanding hotel for the location and price
Great hotel. Ours was a last min trip as we had to drop our daughter off in the area. Hotel is not on the promenade but It’s easily accessible. Rooms was large and very clean and updated. Breakfast was great. Owner manager was very welcoming. We will certainly be going back when in the area next.

Nice base
Good spacious rooms, that are clean. Fan provided if it gets a bit warm. Minibar with space to keep some foods in it. Easy access to both Ascona and Locarno - the no 1 bus which runs near the hotel wil take you to the gateway for the Valle Verzasca. Friendly staff who are happy to help - such as ordering you a pizza when you're all walked out!! Breakfast okay - didn't use it much. Swimming pool fine for a refreshing dip after aay of adventures.

Hot...ideal depending on the temperature
It was very hot and the hotel doesn’t have air conditioning. We had one small fan that helped but a ceiling fan and or another fan would have been helpful. The pool outside was a cooling and refreshing experience given the 27+ temperature. It’s a clean hotel. Would stay again but in cooler temperatures or be better prepared for hot sleeping conditions.

Clean, 5 min drive to downtown
Nice hotel, parking is very limited and tight. Shower a little dangerous to get in and out of.
