The Hotel Garni Annita is truly a charming hotel in Switzerland. Located in Locarno, which is in the Ticino region, this hotel is right near Lake Maggiore and surrounded by mountains. Lake Maggiore is an excellent place to spend much of your time, sunbathing, swimming, fishing, boating or trying a variety of other water sports. In the winter, skiing in the Alps is a popular activity. There are many fascinating tourist attractions in Locarno, as well, and they are well worth a visit. You can visit the Madonna del Sasso, a sanctuary to the Virgin Mary that has been decorated in an elaborately beautiful way. It sits atop a mountain and offers wonderful views, as well. The Castello Visconteo is another popular attraction that dates back to the 12th century and has a long and interesting history. The hotel itself is in a building which has been built in the local Ticino style. It has been renovated recently to offer the guest a more pleasant stay. Guests can spend their time at the hotel relaxing in the private garden where you can soak up views of the lake and of the mountains. You can enjoy a simple, yet delicious meal in the restaurant as well.
The hotel was a good 10 minutes from the railway station, but ensured that it was a quiet stay.The owner was very friendly and helpful.
The manager of the hotel was absolutely one of the nicest people I have met.
Great service, great view! The breakfast was decent and they have parking. I definitely would stay again.
Hotel just ten minutes walk from train station, and bus stop right outside with good links to both Locarno and Ascona. Lake side rooms have fantastic view, but rooms on other side have noisy road.
The breakfast was basic continental with no fresh fruit.
