After a trawl around Locarno to find a hotel that wouldn't break the bank we were sent here by the hotel round the corner (as although they had told us they had a room, when we got there they had given it away... and actually I am glad they did). We had driven to Locarno (European Road trip) and were quite late, hot and tired. We received a lovely friendly welcome and a twin room was available for far cheaper than some of the 'snooty' hotels we encountered. The room was simple but very clean with a shower, the toilet was outside the room but it didn't really matter for us and actually the toilet was pretty quirky too. The place is charming with a quaint courtyard, interior and walkways. The breakfast was simple but plentiful and the coffee excellent. We really loved it and felt it was a real find. Great value and very quiet considering where it is. Perfect.

Only 1 word of warning, if you are driving do beware of the parking restrictions in Locarno. We were told be the receptionist we could park anywhere in the nearby streets until 8am - HOWEVER you can only park in the demarcated white boxes which we were not told. We got a ticket that night. In Switzerland. In CHFs. Ouch. Partly our fault of course but we were relying on local knowledge so just beware.

A beautiful place, really special and typical. The staff is pleasant, charming as the rooms and the environment. The hotel is well placed in the old city, near all shops and restaurants. If there was not so much noise in the street due to restaurant, it could be perfect. I really recommand this place of you are looking for italian feelings...

We reserved in this hotel looking for a cheap solution to spend a nigh in Locarno. We staid in a 4 people room. We had booked with a room only with shower,but at the end we got a room with shower and bathroom. The rooms are in very good conditions and very clean. The room price included breakfast and wifi. Breakfast buffer is not very big but it was nice with fresh bread and yoghurt. We paid 40 CHF/ person and were very satisfied with the service. This hotel is a very good choice to spend a weekend at the middle of Locarno.

We have stayed at many hotels and B&B's but this one is unique and charming, the central lift is itself a piece of art. Rooms were not over large, but fine for a few nights stay, everything was clean and spotless with crisp fresh linen. Breakfasts good, in fact the experience was great. The hosts were very helpful. In all a very pleasant stay, would not hesitate to return there.

It looks as if a couple of persons had bought the building and with a bit of money reconverted it into a bed & breakfast. Central location. Do not expect any luxury, but it is most charming though. Our double rooms had a shower and sink. Shared WC in the open corridor. Very friendly staff. Breakfast not too varied, but ok. Again: the place is most charming, they care for the details, and it was quite cheap for Swiss standards: the room was like 190 CHf more or less. I definitively know next time I go to Locarno I'll book there.
