Not very friendly
Unable to rate as locked when a arrived telephone number on door didn't answer.
Location. Free WiFi internet.
Swiss price for Greek standart. Heavily overpriced for offered standart. Small bathroom. Showercabin nearly in pieces. Broken handles for towels. Small room. Difficult to close window ( room 11 ). Poor lighting. Plain key to the room which we belive could open all of them. Entrance with use a narrow metal stairs which was very unconvenient. Entrance door very poor and will probably open with just a little push while closed. Zero safety. No reception - a coming quest have to call to get somebody come ( calls in Switzerland are 3 times so expensive as in EU ). Italian style breakfast e.g. mainly sweet things plus hard boiled eggs and melted cheese.
the flexibility of the staff to upgrade us to a room with shower inside
the toilets in the corridor. This was our fault because we didn't read the room description in detail
Location near train station and old city and castle.
Old furnitures, staff only speak Italian(I don't), when I arrived at check in time, no one on reception, I had to call someone who spoke only Italian to tell her I was there. She arrived 10 minutes later by car. Poor breakfast.
Excellent value for money
The location was ok. We liked that they had free parking.
We arrived to a note posted on the door that said to call a number for service. The person who answered the phone said that our room key was put in a box outside the parking area. We arrived to our room and the bathroom was dirty; trash not emptied; and the beds still had hair in them. Needless to say that one of our sons refused to sleep in the room and slept in the vehicle. The free breakfast that they advertise was not what we received. The breakfast consists of orange juice (limited), coffee and bread. The owner was nowhere to be found and we asked to speak to the manager. No one was available. The woman that serviced our breakfast was the first individual that we saw from this hotel and she copied my complaints to the owner. She still charged us for the accommodations. I would have asked for a refund and suggest that no one stay here again. I think you should have someone go check out this property; you will be disappointed that you have it on your website.
The hotel was located in a central location within easy walking distance of downtown areas. The furnishings were adequate, and reasonable for the price in that area.
The hotel is a converted house with the kitchen in the back of the house and the restaurant in the front of the house adding traffic between the two. Breakfast was coffee and bread with butter and jellies. The staff were leaving at about 2 PM as we arrived to check in. The restaurant was not open in the evenings.
Very nice and helpfull staff Nice location clean room
quite noisy (old doors and keys)
Nice, clean place, very small rooms but everything you need is there. Good value for money as Bellinzona is extremely expensive, doesn't have much options to choose from; and the location was central, close to everywhere. It was nice of them that they waited for us when we were a bit late for breakfast (came down at 9:55).
The staff doesn't speak English, luckily my friend is Italian so that it wasn't a problem for us. The place was closed almost every time we came - afternoon, evening, night. But we didn't really need anybody's help, so it was OK. Wi-Fi in the rooms was very slow, the signal was much better in the restaurant downstairs.
Even though it's not a top end hotel, and I have been to a handful of more expensive ones, I actually quite like this hotel. It felt like home. And I like the coffee they served during breakfast.
What I liked more it's a view from our window - we could see one of the castles and a church, it was very beautiful, especially in the evening, when the buildings were illuminated. We also liked location of the hotel very much - it was very near from the railway station.
What we didn't like there wasn't enough warm in our room. It wasn't cold, but if it's warmer, it'd be good.
Really expensive not to have a toilet in the room
The breakfast included is OK.
The reception was closed when we arrived on Sunday afternoon. They just left the key with no instruction in a box at the door without informing us in advance. We almost missed the key.
Location very near train station and the heart of charming Bellinzona
No reception. Access through a backdoor metal staircase. No lift and very poor breakfast.
Location is just few minutes walk from the train station.
The room could be more clean
Cheap. Nice staff.
They do not have receptionist. It takes me few hours to meet their staff. They actually put the key in a mail box.. Which is crazy
Good price (but not great value) and location.
Dissapointing room (old and dirty). No bathroom ammenties (had to go out and buy soap and shampoo). Poor furniture, which included an unstable bunk bed. Really a dissapointing experience. No lobby or staff to address concerns.
Close to raileay station nice view to the town
Location on longer trip
Really clean and helpful staff
A nice, relatively inexpensive place to stay in Bellinzona close to the station and downtown. I will definitely stay there again. friendly staff.
