I liked the sound of the nearby river, fine bath
We had a lovely stay at the hotel..The location was breathtaking,the staff were very friendly and helpful..Maybe make the menus in English to help out the humble tourist!!!
Lovely location. Very friendly staff and helpful management.
Nice place, comfortable room, service, honest breakfast, good quality restaurant. The room we stayed was smelling to cigarette smoke.
Too many tree....on the walls
No elevator and we were on the third floor. Of course it is an old building and it is hard/impossible to install one.
Fantastic views of the Alps, friendly staff, great food at a reasonable price
Very nice, family operated hotel. Excellent location - 1 min from the motorway - yet very quiet. Exceptional quisine - overall I very strongly recommend this hotel to everyone travelling through the Switzerland.
Convenient location for a stop between north and south slopes of the Alps. Fine room. Too expensive for what you get. No elevator.
very well located hotel and with roomy and comfortable room. The kitchen closes very early, 9:30 pm. Elevator doesn't exist.
Convenience to what I needed to do and helpfulness of staff.
Good breakfast No Balkony
Easy to find. Excellent staff. Spotlessly clean. Biasca, Switzerland is a beautiful quaint town. No.
The room was basic, staff friendly, most spoke english, the food in their restaurant was the best we had in Switzerland for the price.
breakfast was nice, staff really friendly the beds were not really comfortable
Location, and the restuarant for dinner. Excellent food and good wine - service very good. Very freindly staff in both restuarant and hotel. The pillows really need replacing. We have stayed in two different rooms and in both they are very poor and thin. Take your own. Beds ae comfortable. The shower again in our room didnt work properly and again this is an area that could easily be updated by the hotel and one that is actualyl necesary for the prices that they charge. We would stay here again - and hope that they may consider updating these points in the hotel as it really is the only thing that lets it down for us.
Friendly staff, good restaurant - good hotel for a stop over heading south.
very friendly staff - excellent price - excellent restaurant Not a thing
The helpfulness of the staff when my husband slipped and fell during the night. The location is nice. The shower room is very small, and a sliding door instead of one that opens inwards would be a very sensible modification.
How can you have a room with a bed that's 60cm wide ?
its a family business and of course the politness and service we received from the owner A coffee or tea facility in the room, before someone goes down for breakfast. Also parking facilities, althougth owner allowed us to park in his private space. There were no signs at all on the road for the hotel, nobody around in the evening to ask and so difficult to find
Size of the hotel (quite small), pleasant family atmosphere, comfortable room with quite big bathroom (need not be the case in all rooms!). Somewhat noisy environment (railway, local road, motorway nearby). It's no surprise, considering the location in a narrow spectacular valley with all the traffic up and down San Gottardo. When you shut the window, however, the room is quiet enough.
quick assess to the hotel fron highway, we used the hotel as transit hotel on our way to Italy. Simple hotel but nice atmosphere
During our stay at Defanti, we liked the service the most. As we had called in to be later, the staf didn't hesitate to stay and wait for us to arrive. Even after having arrived they served us drinks from the bar.We're very satisfied and have planned to use the hotel more often in the future. no
Very friendly and good staff. Clean rooms, good breakfast and dinner.
A small and ancient family business with a hotel, restaurant, grocery and gas station. Perfect for overnight stay. Simple but good menu for about Euro 25,At the back of the hotel no disturbance of the trains going by in the front ( at about 200 meters). No elevator. With 3 floors. Beds, especially 3rd bed not big for adults.
Excellent value for money. Owner couple is extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean. Adjacent gas station owened by same fellow carries benzin at a reasonable price. Town has absolutely nothing to offer. Its a pitstop to break the journey. I was a bit skeptical about room facing busy railway tracks across the street from prior reviews but this really is not an issue since windows eliminate 80% of sound when shut.
The staff were so helpful, warm and interesting--it's been owned by four generations! The food was good as well. The room was a little small but it worked.
It was pretty average stop-over for the money. You didn't feel very welcome by the staff. But nothing to really complain about, it just wasn't a hotel you would make a point of going back to..
Charming staff, nice location between the mountains although San Bernardino itself is not extremely nice.
Nice, clean, well furnished hotel, good value for money
The hotel family owners were very friendly. More attention needs to be given to house keeping.
Amicable stuff good breakfast wonderful nature just as we expected
Wonderful location, very friendly staff, family atmosphere
This was a return visit to San Bernardino. Our room overlooked the the village church and offered a great view of the mountains. It's summertime quiet offered a relaxing visit. The hiking was great, and a trip over the pass gave us spectacular views, plenty of hairpin turns and a lovely alpine lake at the top. Stop and add a cairn to the many that visitors have left there. The inclusive breakfast was excellent. Make sure you walk around the town and take in the stone roofs; they're intriguing. Leave your window open at night so that you go to sleep and awake with the quaint sound of cow bells.
The room was very clean and we had a very good sleep in this very nice mountain environment.
Lovely hotel in a stunning location. Accomodation is pretty basic (we were in a 4 bed room), but warm, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The hotel has a great indoor pool, and plenty of room to lounge. The bar is great, and the food in the restaurant was excellent. A really nice place to stay, and the staff, without fail, were fantastic. Recommended. Absolutely nothing!
The staff were pleasant and competent and also eager to please. Clean and well kept simple rooms offered good value for the money.
Location great,staff nice,good atmosphere. I think our room was over thkitchen and there was a very noisy compressor running all night,(freezer, drinks chiller?) which was a pain as otherwise a good place. Sadly we were driving through from Italy to uk so wanted our sleep badly and this would stop me going again.
Very friendly and helpful owner/manager. We hadn't realised this part of Switzerland was Italian speaking so we had no phrase book and he went out of his way to help us with this. Dinner was lovely and authentic - you could watch your pizza being made if you wished to. More by luck than design, the TV channel selection inc England v Russia playing soccer on the night we stayed. Location of hotel is in a very picturesque valley in the Alps. Continental breakfast selection was good and you could eat and drink as much as you wanted to and fresh supplies were constantly brought to the table. N/A - we anticipate returning.
Very good service, nice room
The very helpful staff and the excellent food. The mattresses were to old and soggy (soft). Had are bad back ache.
Absolutely terrific staff: friendly, enthusiastic, energetic. Excellent restaurant -- both a regular menu and a pizzeria are available, and the food at both was very good. That's especially commendable given how far off the beaten track the village of Olivone is. The breakfast buffet was a bit meager -- but then again, the village is far enough off the beaten track that organizing something more extensive may not be possible at 7 o'clock in the morning.
