Reviewed 15 November 2012

Hotel Dell´Angelo is a small hotel very well located .. multilingual , friendly staff. It is very near a shopping area and a few blocks away from the Railway station. Good breakfast and food in general.

We had visited Locarno in March 2012 with Family .

(+) Great location- Piazza grande !!! . Though it is a good 15 mins walking from the Train Station .

(+) We had dinner at the Restaurant . The food was good and the serving staff was indeed much more hospitable than the reception staff !!!

(-) Old Rooms / Furniture - The rooms / furniture seem pretty old . Same with the pillows and bed sheets !!!

(-) The staff at the reception seemed to be a bit unreceptive . Requests for information about nearby places / locations were met with answers like " have a look at the brochures in the lobby " . Other requests were responded with a standard answer " Please visit the local tourism office , they could help you in English "

(-) Breakfast was almost over when we arrived . Though we were well within the time limit , the exhausted items were not refreshed , which really limited our choice for vegetarian items .

Apart from a good location , this place doesnt earn too many good points to be recommended .

Quite a good hotel with excellent location. Our room was clean and tidy, furnitures back from 60's-70's. Buffet breakfast was good. Well worth of 130 CHF which we paid for one night (July 2012).
Car park only 7 CHF/24 hrs in a nearby parking house. Ask from the hotel reception.
Staff was not rude, but not very polite either. They speak only Italian and German.

we booked a `standard room' through laterooms.com. When we arrived, we were given a hostel room, without any toilet/bathroom facilities, and told to use a shared bathroom or pay 50 francs extra for a room with private bathroom. I had the printed receipt from laterooms and it says I had paid for a standard room, nothing written on the booking slip says that the bathroom was excluded, I showed it to the staff at checkin but they refused to accept any responsibility. They even told us that we had to pay extra taxes too because they had somehow forgotten to include them in the prices on laterooms. This really spoilt our whole experience of Locarno, as we felt we had no choice other than wasting the first day of our holiday going to another town or giving more money to these thieves. The type of person who puts their customers in that dilemma is really despicable.

Room Tip: another hotel, it is only 5km to Italy where the hotels are half the price. Como is very nice and n...

Good location and rooms very clean and tidy. Breakfast was good continental one.

Breakfast Staff should be more helpful and perhaps smile a bit more.

My wife and I stayed at Hotel dell'Angelo for 2 nights. We mainly spent most of our time outside so can say little about every detail of the hotel.

Good:
- clean room
- not too noisy (depends on the other guests)
- good location in town
- spacey safe

Bad:
- some breakfast items obviously expired, choice rather limited (no vegetables)
- staff quite impolite (e.g. waiter just dropped menu on table, receptionist ignored us for some time at desk, waiter gave an attitude when asked for things and brought wrong things)
- dinner items potentially undercooked
- limited remote control for TV (could not choose languages for programs)
- wifi only available in lobby/restaurant

Room Tip: Ask for king size bed or end up with two single beds pushed together (move easily when active in bed...

I stayed for two nights in the hotel during a trip to Locarno & Lugano.
The hotel is in a great location, about 10 -15 minute walk from the train station. It is at the farther (from the station) end of Piazza Grande. It is a typical small Swiss hotel. Clean and basic which is all you need when one is out exploring the area all day.
I booked a single but was given a double room which was nice.

Good points:
The safe in the room was large enough for me to leave my laptop.
Breakfast was a good continental one with excellent selection of bread & hams, cheeses etc.
Very clean
English speaking TV channels - something not to take for granted in continental Europe

Not great:
Wifi didn't work
Bed & pillows were the hardest I have come across in a long time. I think the pillows are so old the feathers are just completely compressed and all air gone out of them
Tiled public corridors meant a lot of echo whenever anyone was walking, talking or/and dragging luggage around.

Room Tip: Corner / end of corridor so you are less affected by noise when people are walking in the corridor.
