Wonderful Hotel (old Villa, love the high ceilings) recently renovated , close to Locarno train station. We got a warm welcome and tips on what to do while in the aerea.
Our room faced the back of the building , I thought it was quieter than the the ones with lake view.(not sure how many can see the lake) Romms not huge but perfect for me , very clean . Breakfast simple but really all you need to get going fresh Juice, coffee ,fruits , yogourt , 3 diverent kinds of bread , cereals, a bit of cold cut & cheese.
There is also a nice sitting aerea outside , dinner available need to make reservation in the morning.
If arriving by train get the bus # 1 going to Muralto get off at stazione Sociale the Hotel will be across from the bus stop. (only a few minutes ride) If without luagagge its an easy walk into Locarno, famous for it's lake promenade dotted with restaurants.
I really enjoyed the old part of Locarno. Must see is the Madoona del Sasso perching high above Locarno. Easy to get by funiculare or a steep walk but defently worth the effort. Stunning vistas from above , beautiful renovated church , amazing frescoes inside!
I would go back to Hotel Alexandra anytime !
