Score from 146 reviews Excellent
The great location, clean & comfortable room, nice breakfast.
It's worth to ask for a room with a view over the lake, we got one on the other side and had a view on the street.
Staff were friendly, the views were excellent, breakfast filled a hole, comfortable beds, good value.
Shared bathrooms made it feel more like a B&B, and WIFI reception was poor in the rooms (but excellent in the loo... don't ask).
Great little place with wonderful views accross the lake, upon arriving we could'nt find a parking spot close to the hotel, when Antonio the owner appeared on his scooter and directed us to follow him a short distance up the hill where he had secured one for us and did the same for other cars in our group that followed,fantastic service..
Owner stayed late waiting for us to arrive, then helped us find alternative parking as all spaces nearby were full. A really nice and helpful guy who even sent us off on our roadtrip the following morning with a bag of croissants and things for our journey!
The walk up the hill from the harbour after too many beers! The great view from breakfast room in morning more than made up for that though!
Garni Dolcevita is located on a mountainside. I recommend hotel room with a lake view, it's incredible. It's very close to city main square, 20 minutes walk and easily reached with the help of funicular. Staff is very polite and helpful. Antonio was a great help. He provided information, discounted tickets on funicular and ensured we enjoyed our stay. This hotel provide great value for money, is clean and comfortable. The selection of products served during the breakfast was very good. I definitely recommend it!
Basically all that is mentioned above: Excellent view of the lake. Location: short distance to cable car up to the hills and downtown. Warm and helpful approach of the manager and of the personnel. Unusually good internet in the room. Very good breakfast. Cleanliness.
Garnidulciveta was amazing! The staff so very helpful, breakfast wonderful and location is top notch. Love this place and fully intend on returning for a longer stay.
Breakfast and staff were great.
fabulous and large breakfast:-) wonderful view
View over lake
Need better directions to get there by foot
The best thing was the view of the lake from our room's balcony, which was excellent. The staff was very friendly and made us feel welcome. The funicular and cable cars are both 5-10 minutes walk from the hotel - but the 20 minutes walk down to the city was very enjoyable.
Good staff, nice location
Helpful and very flexible staff Awesome lake view Short way to beautiful sights Awesome breakfast Great garden and decoration
To walk to the hotel, bus or furnicular are better choice
Antonio is very nice, the view is great, comfortable bed and good breakfast.
Small and a bit uncomfortable room. It says it is in Locarno Center and it is not. It is up in the hill. For us was not so bad but if you are old with no car or a family can be annoying.
Friendly and very helpful one of the best views over Locarno and you really get to see the lake. Will be staying again!
The breakfast was great. The staff was super-friendly. The location was perfect. The room was great (we staid in room nr. 1=
Free upgrade to an even nicer view, very nice location, one of the best nights sleep we have had for a long time, friendly staff and good value for money
Very friendly staff, very clean and beautiful view over the lake, great price for the level of quality/comfort!!
The rooms were basic but clean. The buffet breakfast was good.
The check in was a problem. We had advised of an evening check in but arrived to find the door locked with a note to ring a mobile number. On ringing it went to answer message in German, which we did not understand. Fortunately a German couple arrived son after and they we able to get through and obtain the codes to release the room keys. It would have been more convenient if the access code to release the key had been provided on the booking confirmation.
the friendliness of the staff
The shared bathroom in the stairs
Very clean, friendly staff and great breakfast!
Antonio was very helpful to us and made us feel at home immediately. The views from the bedrooms were amazing. We will certainly return (hopefully sooner rather than later!)
We had a fantastic stay here. Our room had a balcony that overlooked amazing views of Lake Maggiore. The room was comfortable and clean. Breakfast each morning was delicious with a wide variety on offer. Antonio was friendly and welcoming and found us discount vouchers for the things we wanted to do. Highly recommended to all!
The amazing view, the paintings on the walls, the excellent breakfast
Not easy to reach with buses, the cleaning product for the bed sheets was too strong
it is such a nice, clean place. filled with great energy and the best bath I have ever taken
Switserland is hell of expensive and the walk up to the hotel was long but a nice view
