“Modern Contemporar. Parking and access to funical railwayy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2013

despite the fact the hotel has been here a long time it is in fact very modern and contemporary inside. Hygiene was hospital standard. Staff were excellent and very helpful, but all came at a cost this is not for someone on a budget break, Parking and access to funicular railway all add up. We ate lunch in the hotel and although well served and tasty was expensive for very simple cuisine.
There is a very nice swimming pool and sauna / Turkish bath and is one of the highlights of the Hotel. Beautiful views from the rooms are some compensation for the cost.

Only problem with this hotel was it was quite difficult to find not well signposted. We should have phoned ahead from the station and they would have collected us. Instead we took the funicular which stopped at the hotel. Other days we walked in and out of town. A lovely walk but quite steep. Locarno is a beautiful town. The location of the hotel is excellent, beautiful views and very quiet. We dined twice at the hotel, once a snack type meal and once a la carte, very good food, restaurant staff very pleasant, helpful and attentive. Breakfast was good too.
Reception and bar staff very friendly and helpful. Room and bathroom excellent size and very very clean. Beautiful views of the lake from the balcony.
Pool a good size, although outdoor area was a bit cool because of the weather. In hot weather the pool and grounds would be marvellous. There is also a grotto bar in the grounds.
On the day of our departure we were provided with a free taxi to the station.
I highly reccommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a balcony and a lake view.

Booked last minute for a weekend trip from Germany after researching the bianco notte festival in Locarno. It is quite a large hotel with almost every room experiencing a sweeping view of lago di maggiore with a relaxing balcony. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The location is perfect... A short 5 minute stroll down to town. Enjoy a good breakfast variety while taking in the view in the morning. Also take time to utilize the pool/spa area....great concept that it was not in the basement but instead on the top floor where the vistas could be enjoyed while swimming!! They have a specific area of grass for dogs which we found convenient as well. Would stay here again if in Locarno!

I have been fortunate to stop in the fantastic hotle a few time on Business. and Its everything you would expect in one of the best hotels in the area. Its on quiet a steep hill of you walk into town s- be prepared for a hard walk on the way back from town! having said that if you want the great views then thats the price. Its right on the lift rout if you want to go to the top of the mountain

Room Tip: the rooms in the anex dont have the great views the the rooms overlooking the lake do.

This hotel was excellent in every way - the room was very spacious and had a large balcony. The breakfasts were great and the evening meal was also very good.It was easy to explore by the lake or higher up the mountain by using the funicular and ski lifts. We enjoyed the walk up the hill to the hotel on the few evenings that we ate near the lake - in October the funicular stops working at 9pm.From Locarno there are many places to visit - we had wonderful days out in Bellezona , Ascona and the botanical gardens on the Isole di Brissago - all accessable by boat or train. We also hired a car for one day to go to Mogno . After these outings the return to the hotel was very welcoming and relaxing.

Room Tip: Have a room with a balcony - the view is breathtaking

4 stars - Excellent value for money, very comfortable, good spa facility and breakfast no extra charge ( Pool, Turkish bath, sauna, laconium, fitness room) we booked in the morning through TripAdvisor and got an upgrade with an outstanding view of the lake. Nicely located just overlooking lake and city ( 1st stop on the Madonna Del Sasso funicular) within walking distance of the famous Piazza Grande and the old town. Excellent service and friendly staff at the reception (Simone) - Large selection on the breakfast buffet - Just missing a kettle in the room to enjoy tea or coffee with the view (bring your own travel Immersion Water Heater and tea bags) Otherwise you call room service and by the time you get it it's lukewarm anyway!!

Room Tip: Ask for the lake view

Lovely hotel up hill from town – only 10 minutes down to town on foot, but get the funicular railway back, which stops at the hotel (who sell tickets at SF3.00 each) . Had a room on top floor of main block – no balcony, but room itself was very spacious with a good seating area. Secluded gardens, swimming pool and spa facilities. If you come by train, hotel will collect you from Locarno station. Excellent food, vast buffet breakfast, 4 course + salad evening meal . Locarno has excellent shops if you can afford Swiss prices!
