Location - relative to the trian station. Cleanliness. Great breakfast. Helpful staff.
No facility in room to boil a kettle. No mini-bar frige
Great staff, excellent location, right across from the station and the hotel was finished with the highest quality materials.
Christina was really helpful at the front desk and went out of her way to make our two night stay comfortable. Breakfast had a large selection and we even had eggs boiled on request. Three stars underscores this recently and extensively renovated hotel.
Clean and tidy accommodation. Staff amenable and helpful Close to the railway station, lakeside and town centre
A little to sterile Odd reception arrangement Breakfast was very average
Location is fantastic, in front of Locarno station, and very close to FLMS(funicular platform) to go Cardada and Cimetta. Staff is very kind, friendly, and favorable. Room is spacious, clean and equipped air conditioner, refrigerator. I paked my renter car in parking lot of this hotel. Parking lot is on the backstreet going around this hotel. Convenience store is in suroundings of Locarno station.
nothing~Road for go to Locarno via Italy from Zermatt is very narrow and rough. You had better go to Locarno through Swiss road.
We like the fact we had secure parking , also the staff were very charming and helpful . It was very clean and stylish .
The internet showed the villa to be full of elegance and old fittings but in reality there were little to see .It was in fact very modern but beautiful all the same.
Very well renovated - but retains character.
The owners of this beautiful, renovated and typical Ticcinese Villa have been very friendly at our arrival. The check-in has been pleasant and not complicated. As the reception closes at 9pm we have been informed about the instructions of how getting in and out of the hotel. The room and the bathroom, both very modern and nice, left nothing to be desired. Breakfast in the morning had been copious and included into the room price.Parking lot available. All over a very pleasent stay.
- very friendly - clean - prefect location - nothing to complain!!!
Great location, air con, breakfast good and a refurbished room
We needed to be near the station, so the Hotel Rio Garni was the perfect location for us.The staff were friendly and welcoming. The accommodation was comfortable and very clean. A good selection of food at breakfast.
Noisy air-con, which was essential as on a busy road and hot, south facing, so the windows had to be closed overnight
This hotel is perfect for visiting Locarno, both in location & quality. The staff is fantastic, very friendly and service-minded. Our room was extremely stylish and contemporary (modern), which I personally love. The breakfast was great and the coffee was so good that I wanted to take the coffee machine home with me!
It was a really nice hotel, beautifully decorated, greatly located, and with an excellent breakfast.
As all the hotels in Switzerland, it was over expensive, there were not many amenities in the bathroom, and the beds were made with rolled blankets. I guess it is some kind of standard.
Sehr freundliches personal, top Lage.
I was really happy with everything and the staff was really helpful,nice and welcoming ...I would highly recommend this hotel
The Hotel was perfect, close to the station. The people were so friendly and supportive.
Friendly helpful people, perfect three minute egg at breakfast, modern bathrooms, walking distance to everything you want to see in Locarno.
We had 2 twin beds next to each other. The space between was a little uncomfortable.
friendly welcome comfort excellent breakfast
Excellent location which would be extremely difficult to beat. Even staying in the old town (Citta Vecchia) of Locarno is not as convenient as Hotel Rio Garni. Hosts Caterina and Gigi were incredible.
the host was very accommodating of our late arrival. the breakfast was excellent
the room was recentrly refurbished. Looked fresh and was functional. The clothes rack was not in a closet. Rather unusual but it worked.
No electric plugs were placed above the desk, had to get down to the floor to charge my laptop. Will they never learn.
Location, nice staff, AC, cleanliness
