Score from 214 reviews Excellent
A lovely small hotel with an excellent breakfast. The host was always ready for answering questions and giving information about the town and the sourrounding. We would stay again there.
Nicely decorated room, very friendly staff, good location. Good Value. I had a good stay in Locarno and would recommend it without thinking.
The owner/manger was very nice and helpful. The location is quite central in Locarno and breakfast was good.
The mandatory 10:00 checkout - it was eat and run, not what I, and I bet other guests, like on vacation - 12:00 would be much better. Also, WiFi reception in room 5 was very poor.
Owner was helpful although his English was limited, but we still managed to communicate !; room size; hotel was appealing; nice having tea, coffee and cookies available; location; cleanliness
Its cute. Very nice bath. Great little outdoor courtyard patio
Better bus instructions to get there from train station
The Hotel Garni Giacometti is a typical insider-tip for open mindet people. Small but very big for feeling god. A home atmospher. And a trip throught the art of Giacometti. Awesom personal ;), everytime god for a talk and to check out the next events. Its in the central of Locarno and next to the door is a very good and small suppermarket. In the opposite is one of the best food locations. Very traditional. You get also a welcome drink in a small caffee, what is very interesting to watch out the public ;)
This hotel was very quaint, great old building, beautiful indoor courtyard for breakfast, coffee or spending time reading. The host is delighful, and very friendly, but his english was limited, so if you need to communicate, and only speak english as myself, it could be challenging, he tried his best! but i managed fine! My room was clean, and perfect size for one, except it was noisy ! I could hear water draining down the pipes in the walls every time a neighbor used their water, and people walking by, all day and night on the busy street below my bedroom window. There was no fan in the room, and being a hot day, i had to sleep with the windows open. So bring earplugs! Or ask for a courtyard facing room if you want a more restful sleep. I was there during moom and stats concert seadon, so that might of been why there was extra noise! Breakfast was great, lots of choices, great selection. Lovely hotel, just be prepared with asking for a quiet room, and bring cash on checkout!
They only take cash!! Booking.com let me use my credit card but did not let me know that i had to pay cadh on checkout.. No credit cards!! I found no where on the hotels site stating this, only in small print later on booking.com site. It should of been mentioned on booking and checkin so you are prepared! I had to rush to go to a ATM, and almost missed my train!
This is a very nice place to stay - central, quiet, wonderful host, good breakfast, coffee etc available for free at all times.
Very good location in the old town. Hotel has a lot of charme. Patio for breakfast is very nice.
We had a wonderful long weekend in Locarno. The owner of the Hotel was very friendly, breakfast in the charming "patio" excellent, the room nice and the beds comfortable :-))
Very friendly owners, clean rooms, great breakfast. Will definitely be back!
friendly staff, good value for money
not a real problem for me, but the room and the washroom area are not separated by a door
Atmosphere, breakfast, coffee & tea available 24 hours, wifi. The proprietor very helpful with parking and information and accommodating as we were running late. Rooms comfortable.
Clean, pleasant room.reasonable breakfast selection.A big plus was availability of tea/coffee/cordials & biscuits anytime during day or evening! Good location for restaurants, shopping & within walking distance to train station & ferry terminal.good host.
Excellent, everyone very friendly....one of the few hotels in the old town that had en-suite bathrooms.
The owner is super nice, very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The facilities are very clean and nicely decorated (not too much, not too little). The location is perfect in the heart of the Citta Vecchia, 2 minutes from Piazza Grande. Breakfast was delicious, and it included a nice variety of things to choose from and the owner was there to refill everything from time to time. Tea and Coffee is available anytime which is really nice too. All in all we can highly recommend this place and look forward to coming back again soon!
The room we stayed in (No 7) didn't have a window and so we could hear pretty much everything that was happening just outside of your room. It was the last room available and therefore also at a special price, so we can't complain really.
