The Belvedere Hotel, on a beautiful sunny slope above Locarno, has spectacular views of Lake Maggiore and the mountains, an indoor pool and modern wellness and fitness facilities.
Score from 333 reviews Excellent

Set on the lake shore promenade of Lake Maggiore, Smarthotel Geranio Au Lac is only 110 yards from the Locarno Train Station and the center of the city. It offers a breakfast buffet.
Score from 249 reviews Very good
Wonderful resort hotel. Comfortable wirlpool and sauna are included in the price. The dinner course is at a reasonable price with buffet oevres and dessert. The staffs are helpful and friendly.
This is Swiss hospitality at its best. From the very professional and helpful staff to the really spacious room with lake-view, the bed and the curtains/shades, the bathroom, everything was there and worked as intended. Beautiful clear and subdued art-deco styling and large ballroom for dinner. Great experience, will return.
From the moment we arrived, we loved everything about this hotel. We took the bus, and then walked uphill, and were exhausted. Receptionist treated us to complimentary glass of Prosecco! Our room was large and comfortable and had a really nice balcony overlooking the lake. Hotel staff spoke English and did not hold it against us that we have not learned to speak Swiss German or any language other than English! Breakfast was as good as complimentary breakfasts get. It was served in a beautiful dining room with fine silver and dishes, and the coffee was excellent.
We thought it would be closer to Locarno. Getting to the hotel via public transportation (train, bus) requires a bit of a hike straight uphill for 400 meters. Taxi from Locarno on a slow week night cost 17 euros.
The staff were very welcoming. Wellness area was enjoyable. Breakfast was great. View over Lago Maggiore.
Got an upgrade to a lakeside room, absolutely stunning view and location.
- The staff was very professional especially madame Tiziana. She helped us a lot during our stay.
A nice hotel,very nice staff.Loved their spa,great service,had one of the best massages ever!great wifi connection all over the hotel. Free parking. Had a lake view superior room,beautiful lake view as well as the hotel's tropical park.Great service in the restaurant,had a nice dinner,very good breakfast buffet.
The rooms could do with nicer furniture.
Location was good
Bad was bad Staff was not friendlily
Good location, great view (in part of the rooms), breakfast, comfortable parking
They charge extremely high rates for kids in the room - for 2 children we had to add 200 SF above the relatively high rate we already paid for the suit / family room, which was not comfortable mainly because the poor quality of the mattress of the sofa for the children
Everything. My 4th visit this season and its just a great place to relax at. The view is the best.
Nothing except that from the Spa area they have done away with the tea making and snacks which were always a welcome added extra.
Clean, helpful staff, excellent breakfast
location a bit far from the action
Absolutely everything. Superb pool lovely Spa. Spacious comfortable rooms with great views. Restaurant is wonderful especially dining on the terrace. Can't fault it.
Views are fantastic, if you pay enough to see the lake Lovely large pool and spa facilities Charm of a 100 year old hotel
Restaurant staff were very poor Forgetting orders, wrong wine, in appropriate restaurant staff behaviour After a disaster of a dinner, they even got the simple breakfast order wrong A real let down especially for the price
Excellent Hotel Buffet Breakfast until 10:30 Very tasty dinner
- staff at the reception very unfriendly with bad excuses for wrong information they gave us...
Situated on a small hill, the hotel enjoys a non interrupted view of the lake, Locarno and surrounding countryside. Its old fanshioned (in a good, spacious way) but renovated and pleasantly refined. Calm environment, clean room, friendly staff and great spa facilities.
The staff somehow managed to give our room (2 night stay) to a couple with the same last name. However, they largely made up for this oversight. While we were given a smaller room for the first night, it had an amazing view and we took advantage of a free all-you-can-eat dinner (very good food). We then spent the second night in their best room.
Cleanliness, SPA, Healthy food
value for money is fair - the hotel needs some renovation.
Though lowest room category, it had everything you needed and gave a comfortable atmosphere. A small extra wish was easy to get it fulfilled. Nice place, we will come back.
Wow. Perfect in so many ways. Incredible views, dilicious food, quiet and beautiful...
good wellness section with various saunas and jacuzzi late breakfast (until 10:30) and check-out (12:00)
little far from Lago Maggiore sound insulation could be better for rooms.
The grounds are beautiful. The outdoor swimming pool is heated and the staff will even extend the hours if you feel like an early or a late swim. The food is exquisite and the location is peaceful. I felt completely refreshed after my stay!
If you are looking for a modern business hotel, this is not the place for you.
Wonderful staff, extensive heated pool, large hotel room, very good breakfast.
Warmth and hospitality.
Rooms are too small. Bathrooms and rooms need to be updated and modernized.
Excellent service and breakfast. Very clean.
Swimming pool outside is used by locals and not guests only. People reserve beds early morning at swimming pool. Bathroom a bit tiny.
