We had requested a quiet room, and were given a room on the back of the hotel on the fourth floor. It was, quiet, the bed.was comfortable, and the shower was the largest we had during our stay in Switzerland. The room was clean, had a kettle and tea making facilities which was a bonus! The breakfast was good, usual meats,cheese, cereals, fruit, and you could boil your own eggs. The reception staff were helpful. The hotel is well situated not far from the rail station, but it is an up hill walk, so beware if you are not travelling light. Locarno is well situated for visits to Lugano, Ascona, and Bellinzona and some nice walks in the town.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back don't have a balcony or views of the town, but are away from the traffic noise on the the busy road at the front.

Stayed here one night. The hotel is super. Extremely clean, room lovely. Had a room with a balcony, was nice to sit and enjoy the view. The beds are very comfortable. Breakfast was good, food was constantly replenished. Will certainly stay here again. Thank you to the friendly lady at the reception desk, all the staff were very nice.

A modern hotel just a couple of blocks up the hill from the train station with a great view of the lake.

Since we were only staying one night (just a quick day trip from Stresa Italy) I wanted something within walking distance of the train (arrival) and ferry (departure) and the main square-just a few blocks as our timing was fortunate as the town was hosting an international film festival.

As for the hotel, it's pretty small with 4 floors of rooms and three larger suites on the top (5th floor). We booked one of the top floor rooms which had a large double bed, huge private patio with electric sun shade, a separate sleeping room (also with a Murphy bed) and a good-sized bathroom with both tub and separate large shower.

The furnishings were modern and the hotel seemed fairly new. Breakfast is included as well and had all the typical items-fruits, cheese, meat and breads and is available beginning at 7:00 am.

Wifi on the 5th floor was very spotty going in and out from the 4th floor transmitter (no separate one on 5) but that was really the only difficulty during our short stay.

There is one major aspect my husband could not stop raving about is the bed the room had. Super comfortable bed ensured we got a good nights sleep and were fresh for walking around this gorgeous town.
The breakfast was lovely with fresh breads, juices, cold meats and eggs, but the highlight here was their coffee. The coffee machine totally makes you realize you are in the Italian region. There were plenty of coffee options to choose from and we did end up having a lot of coffee here.
It is a 7 mins walk from the Locarno station and 10 mins walk from old town.

There isn't much to add to what people have already said. The hotel is modern and very clean. It is close to the train station (with some shopping by the train station) and close to the funicular, but still in a relatively quiet neighbourhood.

The room was not overly large, but was completely adequate, with a good work desk and plenty of storage and cupboard space. The buffet breakfast was excellent. The parking (extra cost, right next door) was convenient. The staff at the front desk were friendly, efficient and could switch effortlessly between Italian, German and excellent English. Very impressive.

The price was relatively high but very reasonable for high-cost Switzerland.
