“clean, friendly and helpful! a nice surprise”
Reviewed 8 August 2011

This hotel was a pleasant surprise: clean and simple, with extremely helpful, kind and friendly staff.
Other plusses: the good breakfast, in a pleasant sunny dining room or the outdoor terrace, and free indoor parking in the hotel's own private garage.
The room windows are very well soundproofed so one hears nothing of the road below.

We stayed in this hotel for two nights to attend the Locarno film festival, and chose it because... we had no choice! Everything else was booked up. To tell the truth, we expected the worst, given the low price and description of the rooms as small and basic. So it was a very pleasant surprise.

Some of the facilities were not top-notch (wierdly disfunctional TV remote control, clock radio that only worked intemittently, curtains slightly less wide than the windows) but the other positive points made up for these small inconveniences.

Room Tip: ask for a room on the 2nd floor, near the back (further away from the road)

Reviewed 12 February 2008

This hotel is cheap (compared to other places in Switz.), the rooms were small and simple - bed, bathroom, desk, chair. Bed was the harder type you find in Italy sometimes. All white made the room look larger, and the best thing was the balcony. Ours overlooked greenery and was on a hillside, actually at the base of Monte Verita. It was lovely outside, quiet, had birds singing, and a few blocks from Lake Maggiore. From there we saw Hotel Tobler up on the hill, and walked up till we found it and enjoyed the magnificent view from the dining room.

Breakfast was included and was adequate - meats, yogurt, bread, cereal etc.
