“Lovely, well situated hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2008

This hotel is beautiful outside and inside. We were warmly welcomed by the staff. The room was nice and clean. Breakfast was very basical but good.
We had a washbasin in the room. The bathrooms are shared but clean.
It is very well situated, its only a 10 minute walk to the city center and the railway station. Theres also a lot of buses going downtown if you dont want to walk.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2008

We arrived early by train and the excellent receptionist allowed us access to the room. The hotel is in a lovely building and our room was comfortable and very clean. The shower ensuite was very small and we would prefer the washbasin to be in the shower room/toilet instead of in the bedroom area. The room facilities otherwise were very good. Our balcony gave a view of the lake. Traffic was heavy past the front of the hotel but the street was much quieter after about 6 pm. Air conditioning was excellent.
The breakfast was also excellent with a superb range of food and drink served in a beautiful setting. We did not have an evening meal at the hotel.
The hotel was a short uphill walk from the station and there was a bus stop outside which gave access to the centre and to Ascona.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Locarno

  • Liked — Standard of decoration and furnishing of the hotel
  • Disliked — Very small ensuite with washbasin in bedroom area

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2008

We stayed in Hotel Alexandra for a weekend this January. We got a good rate with Priceline and were very happy with what we found. It was clean, friendly. No luxury, very simple and basic. It's within easy walk from the station (10 min uphill on a busy street) although you can also take a bus.
Our room faced a back yard and was really quiet. One thing I didn't like was two twin beds joined together and separate duvets. I could clearly see it in the photos of their website, so I was expecting that.
Breakfast was a light buffet type, some salami, prosciutto, yogurt, jam, juice and good coffee.
There is a friendly parrot in the reception - he fell in love with my orange scarf! I would like to go back just to see how he's doing!
