This is a nice hotel, but it is quite high above the lake, so to walk into the center of Ascona is not very convenient. There are plenty of free parking. An excellent and varied breakfast
The most beautiful hotel and view in Ascona. The hotel staff were first class!!
Stunning view from our room as well as from the restaurant. Excellent food. Excellent service. There was no airconditioning. My assumption was that nowadays all 4 star hotels especially in warmer climates had airconditioning, so I did not check it when I booked this hotel.
The hotel staff are fantastic and very helpful. expensive, no airconditioning
It was a standard 4 star hotel , room amenities could be upgraded . No 24 hour reception, key system (after 8pm )not explained to guests . Breakfast not kept replenished , on both mornings items ran out and no further eggs, cheese or hams where bought out. This is not good when you have 12 guests eating only bread and fruit for breakfast.
The location was superb overlooking the lake side and the rooms and balcony was spacious. THe hotel should provide some sort of taxi service from the bus station to the hotel. as the walk up to the hotel can be very tiring, especially when you just arrive. I also believe the staff can be a bit more polite.
It has a very nice view of the Lake and surrounding mountains I agree with nother review, that a four star hotel in 2009 should have aircinditioning in the room. Also the floor covering in both therooms an general area need an upgrade
Good location with nice view out to the lake. Substantial buffet breakfast eating out on the terrace. Good parking facilities It was very hot during our stay and it would have been nice to have air conditioning in our room.
Location, breakfast, large room. No shower in bathroom. Had to negotiate to use a shower in adjoining room.
Excellent location by the lake. Beautiful building, old castle with a comfortable feeling. Gorgeous garden and excellent restaurant. The breakfast was great, too. We enjoyed our stay.
The attention and service of the staff was excellent, everyone was most helpful and very courteous. The location was ideal, very convienent for all ameneties. No
All was as described and good
We had a great vacation in Ascona and the hotel is excellent. Unbeatable location and very helpful employees. Good buffet breakfast. We would definitely stay here again. Nothing.
Beutifull lake view, exellent restaurants, helpfull staff. Extremely noisy (rooms looking over busy street, piano restaurant, fair ets.). Could sleep from 2 p.m. until 7 a.m. only!
In best position, across road from water, great location to restaurants; great village shops; lovely atmosphere
good acomodations,excelent service,
Very nice location, and the room of the top of the tower was very nice. Service was also very good. Staff was very friendly.
front desk staff was friendly and professional the room was very basic, in particular for their price. nothing like the rooms in the pictures - more what you would expect to find in an Ibis motel. nothing provided beyond the very minimum.
The room and the view. The pool and spa close at 8 pm, which is a bit too early.
Th elocation to the lake and the village I did not like the staff, all were rude. We were only informed on the last day by other guests there was access to the side of the property that we could use to bring the baby pram inot the property. All the staff at this property had watched me more than once carry a 20 kg child and a baby pram up the stairs by myself without offering any help or advice about how to get into the property easier. The front counter staff were rude. They have little local knowledge. If they had any is was not available in English. They would not even say hello when we walked past from reception.
it is a nice well situated hotel with the direct view on the lake,nice ambiente and clean wellness
High quality of the hotel and cleanliness of room. Staff was excellent, breakfast and reading room were very nice. Balcony overlooking Lago Maggiore. Excellent restaurants nearby.
Very good location,comfortable and clean with a good staff.Also has a goog breakfast Buffet.
High speed internet is a pain. You have to pay a lot for it, but it does work at a good speed.
The location on Lago Maggiore is perfect, the room matched our expectations perfectly.
My family and I especially enjoyed the "tea/coffee" round-the-clock facilities which made staying in the la Meridiana "very homely"!
The location, beautiful in front of the lake. Big terrace with a lovely view! The rooms were big enough for two (comfort), free coffee - tea the whole day, friendly staff. Great restaurant just below the hotel! Small Spa, very cosy! there is nothing negative to say about la meridiana
swimming pool, breakfast on the terrasse, good free coffee at any time
locality car parking, only one english newschannel, best tables at breakfast reserved for german speaking couples,no one explained breakfast procedure only when we were leaving did we gather you could order eggs
Friendly & helpful staff. Pleasant reasonable size bedroom. It was very hot, only had ceiling fan in the bedroom, it needed air conditioning
Friendly staff and clean rooms. Patient with children. The decor seemed a little old fashioned (although in perfect working order).
The staff was relativ polite and willing to help. However the hotel did not satisfy us Very old and poor facilities, I do not think that was worth the money we have spent. I would not recommend this hotel for relaxation and vacation
The pool. No airconditioning (staff claimed there are no airconditioned rooms although the guest direectory indicated otherwise), reception mostly unmanned, terrible staff attitude, certainly not value for money.
quite good hotel with swimming pool and sauna.
The location, the staff, the secure on site parking. Very child friendly.
Nice room Dining room was a bit basic
Convenient location for Ascona
I booked a single room for 1 person, but I got a double room for 2 people, so my friend could also sleep with me. :-)) Thank you..! The hotel web site says "bus 31 to the hotel from Locarono". We caught bus number 1 on Friday night at 11.30pm, and went to San Marteno.
I can't remember the last time I was walked to my room - the staff at this hotel is super nice!
We found the staff extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel was in a relaxing and peaceful location and the centre of Ascona was within easy walking distance.
The hotel was a bit off the main drag but was okay for walking to the promenade in Ascona. SWISS means pricey though... Take advantage of the pool and the good breakfasts.
Very friendly, checkin Breakfast , no fruit
Very helpful and service minded staff in the reception. Good value for the money. Free Wi-Fi in public areas. Ok breakfast included. Walking distance to town center and lake. Pool in the hotel garden and bike rental. The (free) public parking outside the hotel can be full, but the hotel staff were very helpful with arranging a free parking spot on request.
Friendly atmosphere , helpful staff , good food and lovely seating area for meals both inside and out. The pool area was very nice and we will happliy book in to stay there again.
A little difficult to find. However, on arrival after a five hour drive, we were greeted by the most friendly reception and most helpful staff encountered during a two week tour. The restaurant provided us with an excellent choice, great value and, again, wonderfully friendly service. This is our kind of hotel and would certainly recommend it to our friends. A little removed from the 'holiday scene' being situated in a more residential area but this did not present any real problems.
We enjoyed the outdoor pool and sunbathing area the most.
The Hotel itself is a destination with an extraordinary history, a museum, sporting facilities with great views. The building is Bauhaus design reflecting the fact that it was probably the world's first counter culture site. It overlooks Lake Maggiore and sits in its own park, and believe it or not a tea plantation. It is also very good value. None
Quiet and silent no.
Very convenient location close to lake, shops and many restaurants. Chris and Stephanie were very friendly and helpful. Room was very small. Weather was very hot when we stayed there and room had no air-conditioning or opening windows. Ceiling fan enabled us to sleep, however room was very warm.
The hotel is locanted in the centrum, just few meters from the lake.The room was clean and comfortable, there was enough place also for the baby bed.Tthe staff very nice. You can hear the people on the street, if the window is open.
Hospitality; quality of food; location for Jazz Festival No
Lovely refurbished old building; spacious room with verry good beds; verry neat bathroom well equipped; idealy located in towncentre, a few paces from the Piazza; quite noisy ad night because of a cafe-restaurant opposite the front rooms; probably more noisy because of the midsummerholliday we stayed there.
Small character hotel with young friendly owners.Spacious double room with balcony and king sized bed Excellent meals in a beautiful enclosed vine covered terrace area.Ideally located one minute walk to Lakeside and promenade.Highly recommended.Parking available in nearby car park.
While simple, the hotel was very nice, very clean and staff were extraordinarily helpful and friendly. Strongly recommended!
