A good choice in Locarno. It isn't a great Hotel but I think is one of the best options in Locarno. Situated not in the city center, but just short walk to the center.
They don't have parking, but is not so complicated to find a street park (pay).

The room was clean, the breakfast was OK (good views).

Negative things:
The promised lake views were... trees and some water. Maybe it's a good idea stay in a non standard room.
Internet: the has a wifi area ($$) and we wanted to use our laptop at night. We asked at reception desk and... he didn't know what to do.

Excellent location overlooking lake, close to train station yet quiet. We stayed in newly refurbished rooms with triple glazing and own balcony and en-suite shower room. Breakfast on terrace. No tea and coffee facilities in room but available at any time from restaurant (CHF3). Switzerland and Locarno is expensive (we paid GBP120 per room per night) but worth it. Breakfast only with good restaurant next door. Would recommend this for general atmosphere, location, quiet and unintrusive service.

I have never written a hotel review before, but found the Trip Advisor site so helpful that I wanted to give the same help to others.
This hotel is so beautifully situated, just by the lake shore, and literally five minutes from the station--but with none of the sleaziness sometimes associated with hotels near stations.
Spotlessly clean bedrooms (and everything else !) not large, but comfortable, with a very fair sized en suite shower room. Good breakfast in a bright room overlooking the lake--and friendly staff--what more could one want ?I woiuld also recommend their adjoining restaurant Da Vinos.

Spent one night here on our way back from Italy. The receptionist was charming and extremely helpful, finding us a car parking space (not easy). The hotel is spotless and we were delighted to find we'd booked a room with a view of the lake - the hotel really is on the front. Breakfast buffet was good, taken inside or out on the balcony, again with a view. Overall good value for a money in a resort where you can pay a lot more. Locarno itself looked very pleasant in what we saw in our brief stay.

We've spent three nights on the Hotel Geranio: the position in beautiful and we had a very nice room with a big balcony directly on the lake with the most beautiful view of the lake of Locarno. The personal at the reception was very kind. The service and the offered breakfast is like a 3stars. We suggest this Hotel to everyone traveling in Locarno.
