Reviewed 18 April 2010

The hotel is at a great location and it's fairly clean. But that's where the good things to say about it end. I won't stick to the details that make this hotel unreasonably priced, they've been covered by others. Our biggest nuances where that the staff is very noisy, starting at 0700 in the morning and the breakfast is simply awful (croissants where refrigerated since ice age).

We choose this hotel for its location, right on the city main square Piazza Grande and good price. If you are looking for that as well and you are not bothered with noise and "passé" decoration, this hotel is a great deal.

Very nice hotel right on the town square in Locarno. Staff are helpful and there are plenty of restaurants nearby. Rooms were a good size.

My husband and I spent 3 enjoyable nights here. We loved the terrace overlooking the plaza, where we could enjoy a bottle of wine purchased at the near by co-op. Breakfasts were ample and the restaurant in the hotel offered daily specials and a reasonably priced menu. We also took advantage of the wifi in the lobby. The only draw back was no air conditioning and the nights were warm. We found all the personnel friendly, although they did not all speak English.

I recently booked a twin room for myself and my daughter at the Hotel dell'angelo. I have to say that we thouroughly enjoyed the experience. The hotel itself is located on the 'Piazza Grande' which is a pleasant cobbled square with restuarants and shops. The room was very nice and the staff were very friendly. My Italian is non-existant but the staff were very patient and provided help where required. The highlight for us was the outstanding food that the hotel provided in their restaurant. We were amazed that we could eat what was in my opinion 5 star Italian food at such a reasonable price. If you are on a budget the restaurant have quite a few special offers on the menu which are also excellent. All in all the Hotel dell'angelo ticked all the boxes for quality and value for money.

I have to say that I'm suprised by some of the negative comments on here about this hotel. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone planning a visit to Locarno.

The hotel is in a great location, but the peaple inside are very unpleasant. Locarno is fantastic, but the hotel was not worth the money, Poor service, poor cleaning, very noisy. Pls avoid, try other hotels in the area.

For the price I would try to find another hotel. The hotel is in a good location downtown and close to buses. But watch out! When they say shared bath, they mean VERY shared. Several rooms are sharing one shower and two toilets to several rooms. The tub didn't drain and was constantly less than clean, due to overuse. Often the bathroom had no soap and was dirty. The bedroom was small, but ok. There were two singles pushed together for a double bed, not uncommon in Europe, but not ideal. The remote control was broken. And the heating wasn't controlled in room, it was very very cold.

The room was quiet enough except for the nearby church, which rings twice hourly with the time and at quarter hours starting at seven daily. There is also a club nearby, noisy on weekends.

The real problem was the customer service. Completely unhelpful. It is one thing not to speak English, that is fine. We spoke in German. However, all questions were answered with ambivalent ignorance.

The restaurant is cheaper than other options, but the food is not as quality. Also employed was a waiter who didn't give change. The breakfast is ok.
