The staff were very friendly and helpful, but the hotel was not very well set up for long stays . The layout of the "suite" we were in was a little strange. One lovely big room, and another room that was really a corridor with a bed in it. The main bedroom had no cupboard or shelves for clothes, nor a desk. No bedside lamps for reading. But a great big bathroom and bath, which we appreciated! Breakfasts are not served until 9am, which is too late for families with young kids.
Location was very central. Breakfast was superb. Staff friendly & helpful even with a language barrier. Due to location and birds it was noisy late at night and early in morning.
We felt pampered. The small details (fresh hydrangeas on our plate at breakfast, cookies, little card as a welcome) made our stay a real exprerience.
I liked the comfort and the individual design of the ropom very well. I was also fascinated of the breakfast!
The breakfast is awesome. No shampoo, the breakfast started to late while we agreed on having breakfast at 8:30
Ambience, amazing breakfasts, lovely staff
The hotel is very relaxing and artfully decorated. It has several different room themes but each one is done in with good taste. The room that we have stayed in on two occasions has a kitchenette, a small bathroom, WC and comfortable lounge area. The really yummy continental breakfast is served either in the courtyard garden or inside the cafe and the fruit and pastries are more that you could desire. The people who manage the cafe/hotel also have an art gallery adjacent which we liked too. No lift but helpful people to assist you. Would stay there again as enjoyed the experience greatly. The pedestrian street location may make it difficult for car arrival, but there is a car park nearby.
Athmosphere, wellcoming and care for guests: makes you feel very important. Design and unique approach to B&B
breakfast was a sheer delight
loved the breakfast and decor! and all round fab atmosphere
It is simple and fine. It seems an old building refurbished to be a Bed&Breakfast. Breakfast has good bread with 3 jams, nutella, butter. Plus various types of teas, coffees and orange juice. The stuff is German-speaker, they barely speak any Italian (this is on the Italian part of Switzerland). Be careful that toilets may not be in the rooms unless explicitly stated.
The mattresses in all the rooms were very comfortable to sleep on. The elevator was very clever. I organized this "hotel" for a family function, we were 7 adults and no one was happy with their stay. The rooms were cold at night, there is only one toilet per floor, and the breakfast buffet was cheap- just bread and jam- no meats or cheeses. It was the same quality as a cheap youth hostel but with the price of a hotel.
The location is very good - just off the main square and a short walk from the train station, lake and funicular (5-10 mins). The room I had (double) was fairly spacious and the en-suite shower was good. It also had a wash basin. Although there was a little bit of noise in the alley-way outside, closing the window stopped that completely and didn't make the room too hot to sleep (at end of August). Breakfast was basic, as you'd expect - bread, cereal, coffee and juice - but was better than expected. Staff were friendly. Cigarette smoke and noise coming into the room from the alley-way below the window late at night. Closing the windows fixed this, though. The price I paid for a double room for single occupancy was a bit high - it is really a backpacker hotel - but that said, it was comfortable enough. Although the room had a double bed, it was really 2 single beds pushed together, which kind of defeats the purpose as you have to sleep on one or the other! The toilet in the corridor outside is a slight inconvenience, though that was stated before booking. I didn't like that there was no soap in the toilet room to wash your hands.
A hotel well positioned in Locarno centre in the process of rennovation. Interesting lift to rooms. Good value for money. Toilet on landing but en suite shower. No refund or packed lunch offered for not being able to take breakfast. No certain about safety in event of fire onlt the lift was pointed out as a means off accessing my room.
old room but very clean, shower in room but no toilet (odd) free wifi, breakfast included, walk to main plaza and station, lift, good breakfast no toilet in room , but not far away on same floor
