    Beware it might be noisy, especially if festivals taking place. It didn't disturb us, but if you want peace and quiet, it might be a bit too central.

    Beautifully maintained and clean hotel with friendly staff. Fantastic location on the lakefront with plenty of restaurants, town centre and train station in easy walking distance. Good breakfast too - highly recommended 3 star.

    This hotel's staff really make this hotel, all really helpful with a really cheery disposition. It is in a perfect position for access to town, lake and transport links. Breakfast was a particularly good continental one. Make sure you try their overnight soaked muesli

    The lovely small Hotel on the embankment of Lago Maggiore which is very close to everything you may interest: boat station and railway station, funicular and historical center, the nicest long embankment with wonderful view to the lake. Clean white room (small but very cozy). Good breakfast. Very nice and helpful staff.

    A shower is quite small. Rooms are not soundproof - you can hear everything from other rooms and corridor. So can be very noisy depending on neighbors. Entrance to hotel is not suitable for strollers or wheelchairs.

    Location is TOP! Close to everything. Hotel is very clean. Reception does not work full day during the low season, but it is still possible to enter through automatic doors. So check your emails after booking to arrange door code. Lots of HOT water!

    The breakfast, while standard for hotels in Switzerland (breads, meats, cheeses, cereals), is somewhat underwhelming for the price and I'd recommend going to one of the nearby cafes instead.

    The location right on the lake near the ferry terminal is excellent and the rooms are large and clean (plus, AC in the summer is a huge bonus in Switzerland)! Traveling with a friend, we appreciated how large the rooms were as well.

    The small blue hotel on the waterfront! This was a fine hotel. It is a family owned and operated; the staff were very pleasant and helpful. Very clean throughout, and well equipped bedrooms, good Wi-Fi. The hotel is an easy short walk from the railway station and, despite being wonderfully located right on the waterfront in a very busy area, noise was not a problem for sleeping. Breakfast was very good and for other meals there are many restaurants nearby. There is a lift up to the bedroom floors. There is quite a bit to do in and around Locarno; we were only there for one day for a very specific purpose but if we were to return we would stay again at the Garni Millenium.
