Hotel dell'Angelo, hotel in Locarno

The Dell'Angelo Hotel is centrally located at Piazza Grande in the center of Locarno. It is just steps from the train station, shops and Lago Maggiore.

The hotel is located at the end of the central place of the city, very convenient. The staff was very nice, esp. when I realized that I've got a room with a detached bathroom (I was supposed to get out of my room and pass a small hall to get in my - truth is - private bathroom). When I told the lady at the reception that they should make it clear on booking.com that the bathroom is detached, she first let me know that it is their only room with this feature, but then she offered me a 'regular' room at no extra charge. By the way, I've got - before arrival - a 10% discount for eating in their restaurant. Didn't use it, but the place was full, so I guess they have a very good cook.

We liked almost everything about this hotel. Right from check in everything was perfect. They had everything ready for us, so check in happened really fast. The staff were friendly and very helpful during the whole stay, with any questions we had. The room was quiet large, modern, comfortable and clean. The bed were a little too soft for our liking, but that is up to personal taste. Excellent breakfast selection. The location was great, within 5mins walk you were standing on Piazza Grande. They also have parking, right in front of the hotel. We can only recommend this place!

    Very enjoyable.

    Very enjoyable. Visconteo Castle was interesting and the funicular to Madonna del Sasso was fun. Good pizza at the Ristorante Funicolare. Be sure to take the tram further up to Cardada. The views were well worth the trip!

    A small, yet beautiful city on the Swiss part of Lago Maggiore which, for those who are on a circuit, is a must-come-to in order to visit Sacro Monte Madonna del Sasso. A jewel with an amazing view over the city and the lake, accessible both by foot or by the funicular (lovely).

    Awesome small town on the shore of Lago Maggiore. Clean, all buildings and streets are perfectly maintained. Very green, extremely picturesque - placed between Alps slopes and lake shores , with palms and lot of flowers growing around. Small but beautiful Old town, tasteful food. Just a small heaven on Earth, it still is expensive.

    Locarno was fantastic but the funicular operator put me off. He refused to speak and just pointed to tickets and signs when asked questions. Nobody was there and his vibe was we we're putting him out.

    I love this hotel. I've stayed twice, once as a solo traveler and once with my sister, visiting me from the USA. The hotel is in an amazing location, with the waterfront on one side and a shortcut to the train station on the other. Restaurants, coffee shops and gelato are just next door. The rooms are minimalist. The beds are comfortable. The breakfast is great, and I love that cappuccino, hot chocolate and vending machines are available at all times on the second floor. The staff was fantastic, each time.

    The hotel is situated near the train station which is very convient. The room was spacious, with comfy bed, nice balcony and coffee-tea facilities. You have mini bar available for extra charge. Breakfast was very rich and tasty. Staff of the hotel should get extra credits for their work - Mr Norbert at the reception was extremly helpful, he explained where to go, provided additional information upon my questions - great hospitality and customer approach. I fully recommend to stay here.

    Old-fashioned hostel, or better said: a youth hotel as they were back in the days I imagine. Decent bed and nice breakfast, friendly staff & clean showers. But only 2 sockets in the entire room and lockers that worked with a coin - from which half of them were jammed/not-usable. So just prepare by having your powerbank fully charged when arriving here. ;-)
