We have just had 2 nights at this Hotel in a room on the 5th floor with amazing lake views
We could not have asked for anything nicer.
It is an easy walk to town and there is everything there that you need. Breakfast was good and Reception helpful at all times.
We would recommend staying here.

I stayed there for the filmfestival in locarno, for which it is a perfect fit. Eventhough not on locarno ground but in muralto, the city center of locarno is in walking distance. Staff are very friendly and speak several languages and the roooms are clean and well maintained.

Nice small hotel (34 rooms) that was renovated in 2008. It is modern, clean, has covered parking and wifi and breakfast are included. The breakfast offers an assortment of cereal, yogurt, fruit, bread, jams and most things found in a continental breakfast. The staff was friendly and the hotel has a nice location with the water being only a 10-minute walk down the hill. This hotel offers a nice comfortable and convenient place to stay in Locarno at a fairly reasonable price.

Recently stayed at the Hotel Garno Muralto whilst on a 15 day Swiss Rail Pass. The Hotel is easliy accessible from the Railway Station, albeit with an uphill walk. It is, therefore, an easy downhill walk to the Town Centre and the Lake. The decor is fresh and modern. Our room was well appointed and comfortable. As others have said, the breakfast choice is very good. The staff were all polite and helpful with information. In what looked to be an expensive town, the Hotel gave good value for money. We would recommend it.

The Muralto Garni Hotel is a small sympatric hotel, not far from the Centre of Locarno. The railway station and the lake are 5 minutes walk. The road leading to the station is steep, just as a warning for guests arriving by train and intending to carry their luggage to the hotel
The rooms are modern, well appointed but rather small. The bathroom is clean and of moderate size. Internet is free and of good speed. Overnight parking in the hotel garage is charged CHF 12.- . There is sufficient public parking but all limited to 2 hours.
The breakfast is good and garnished generously. Coffee, Cappuccino and Espresso can be taken directly from the machine. Various kinds of bread, pastries, muesli, fruits, cold cuts and milk products are available. Unfortunately there was no kettle in the room; and even no bottle of complementary mineral water.
There are many restaurants towards the lake and the station. Measured at the steep hotel prices in Switzerland the Hotel Garni Muralto is affordable. Rooms on the 1st and 2nd floor have no lake view.

I had booked a standard north facing room for 2 nights, when we got to the hotel they upgraded us to a lake view on the 4th floor and we liked it so much that we ended up staying 4 nights.
Hotel is lovely very clean, big room, good beds, good bathroom with large shower.
location is very good, 5 minutes from the train station and old town. It was quiet at night.
Breakfast is good, there was a wide choice and lots of it.
The staff were excellent, very helpful nothing was a problem for them.
We really enjoyed our stay here.

Room Tip: Try to get a lake view, it really is stunning.
