    Great location- we arrived by boat and a 5 min walk from the jetty. We left by train, a 5 min walk in the opposite direction. Very nice and friendly staff

    Complimentary coffee machine & water bottles would be appreciated for this pricing point.

    Location of this hotel is top notch right infront of the lake. Their restaurant have amazing food, specially spaghetti. Public transport is very convenient. Rooms were spacious & clean. Our room had the balcony which has the most amazing view of the lake.

    One male staff member was not so friendly and was smoking in public areas of the hotel.

    Excellent location overlooking the port. We were given a room with a balcony and a port and partial lake view. The room was clean. Some staff were friendly and helpful.

    The receptionist was not well-informed about where places are; however the manager of the breakfast made up for that and gave us excellent information..

    Breakfast was good and filling. Extra effort was made to accommodate all tastes and needs. The staff were super-friendly and always willing to accommodate the wishes of visitors. We LOVED being so close to the lake and the station and many of the attractions. I was great to have a balcony from which we could se the activities on the lake. The breakfast staff gave us good information about the trains and buses.

    It is more like a hostel... room is small, fridge is not working. The curtain is merely thin sheer fabric which cannot block the sunlight at all

    Well ! What a lovely hotel, situated overlooking Locarno lake surrounded by various bars and restaurant. The main square is situated just around the corner which is lovely and lively. The staff in the hotel were fantastic, so pleasant and very accommodating we were disappointed to leave. Excellent value for money and i would recommend the hotel to anyone.

    On site parking isn't actually on site. It's across a busy road junction in a public underground car park.

    Perfectly situated right next to the lake and near the railway station. Balcony view was awesome and breakfast was good.

    It's a old hotel, small rooms... Everybody is nice but still it's a very old property, I think yes Locarno is expensive but I would have found much more comfort for the price I paid

    The close to the lake...close to the old city very good!! Breakfast very nice!!!

    the cleaning product smells weird, but you get used to it.

    For a two star garni, this hotel was very clean, good beds and even though our room faced the lake and road side, it was really quiet with closed windows. nice and helpful staff, amazing location.

    Rowdy people outside on the Saturday night. Motor cyclists? Soccer team? Still noisy at 3 am. Sleep impossible !
