The staff was great and this was an excellent location right on the main piazza but set back a bit so the rooms were quiet. The staff was very friendly and everyone went out of their way. The rooms are simple but clean and attractive. TV with cable and perfectly fine bathroom. A great breakfast was included. I would stay here again and again.

The Hotel was very clean and I enjoyed my stay very much. My room was very clean and the bed comfortable.The breakfast was of a high standard in a very pleasent restaurant setting. The evening menu had a very wide choice and every evening meal that I had at the hotel was of good quality. You were able to have three choices of setting for the evening meal, a pub feel at the bar, a formal restaurant feel inside or outside in the open air of the square. The staff was friendly and they provided prompt service. I recommend this Hotel as covering all bases in a simple quality way when visiting this area.

A very good modern hotel in a great location with magnificent views from the lakeside of the hotel. Rooms are beautifully decorated with all of the facilities required for a holiday or business traveller. Breakfast was a very good, fresh continental breakfast.

The hotel is located near shopping district and has an elevator when your room is located on higher floors. A restaurant is attached to the hotel and the food is good and more reasonable than restaurants outside of the hotel.
My room was very quiet and kept clean.
Good hotel for few nights. It situated up on a hill, but has train. Train works till 9-10 pm. Round trip is 6 franks. Stuff is nice, restaurant is very good. Hotel has two pools and small fitness. If you do not mind to spend extra 30 franks/ night, ask for lake-view room with balkony. It worth it even if you do not spend to much time in hotel. Is not that much to do in Locarno itself, but if you have a car you can go to nearby Ascorno (5 min.)

This was my third visit to the Ramada Hotel La Palma, this time for six nights - the previous visits were for one night only. Once again I can thoroughly recommend this hotel. A huge bonus is the location, for these reasons;
The hotel is only a short walk (five to ten minutes) from the railway station. Once you are settled in, using the rear entrance through the car park is the most direct route to the station.
The hotel is situated on a quiet road, immediately adjacent to the lakeside.
The main town centre (Locarno Piazza Grande) is no more than ten minutes walk away.
The boat stop is no more than five minutes walk away.
I found the staff on reception at check in/out to be very friendly and helpful - and they spoke excellent English. Breakfast staff were also friendly and eating breakfast outside on the terrace in the fresh morning air was lovely. My room was at the rear of the hotel (not on the lake side - but this was no surprise as I knew I was paying a lower than average price) - even so there are pleasant views up to the hills at the rear of the town. The room was spacious, clean and quiet..
In summary I think this hotel is a super base for a holiday in the Ticino region. On a couple of days I took the train to Lugano - about 1 hour, and one change, from Locarno - it was very easy. I would be very happy to stay here again.
