This hotel was in a good location for us but we were disappointed by the lack of air conditioning in the room. The good was outstandingly good but breakfast carried a note saying in no way could food be removed from the breakfast room. This suggested we would steal food which we found very annoying.

"Very convenient for railway station; ideal for us"
Excellent in all respects. A COMFORTABLE ROOM After arriving rather late in the evening the staff in the restaurant were most obliging in providing the ideal snack. We enjoyed the presence of local people who had dropped for social chat etc.

This is my second stay in Esplanade. Loved it so much that I could stay every season one week to taste the nature in Locarno. Located over the hills surrounded by trees with a look of classical and forever the best look of its natural way. I would advise anytime to spend some special time for yourselves,,
Great place to stay just a few minutes to by foot from the Locarno train station.
I suggest if arriving by train use the bus for transfer, will stop right in front of the Hotel.
(I think it was # 1, get off at stazione sociale or just ask the bus driver, runs every 15 min.)
If you are without luggage it's an easy stroll to Locarno, old part of town or lake promenade.
The Hotel is very clean ( recently renovated ), staff extremly friendly ask for ideas on what to do. Rooms comfortable not very big for north american standards but was no issue for me. Breakfast simple but all you really need to get going in the morning .(unless you need your eggs & bacon...) Must see : Madonna del Sasso perched on a rock above Locarno , easy to get by funiculare or by foot. (steep climb but well worth the effort) The church is under renovation but still open to visit , amazing frescoes inside the church!

I booked this hotel at short notice, having found that all other hotels in the town were very expensive due to a pop festival in the main square. The hotel is uphill from the station, and can be walked to in about 12 minutes - although it is possible to get a bus if needs be (bus line 2 I think). However the slightly elevated position is worth it for the superb view over Locarno and the lake - you can actually see "round the corner" of the lake towards Italy, which you do not see from the town itself. I was given a friendly welcome and a glass of mineral water on arrival, which was welcome on a very hot day.
Now, the hotel itself is slightly unusual, being annexed to a residence for nuns. However, the hotel part is run exactly as you would expect any three star hotel. The room had TV, wifi, hair drier, safe, bathroom etc. The room was quite small but had a balcony of almost equal floor space, with a really spectacular view down to Locarno and Lake Maggiore. I would also note that everything was spotlessly clean. I read a review elsewhere on the internet which suggested that the main entrance to the hotel is locked at ten p.m. - I can confirm that this is not (or no longer, if it ever was) the case; the room key has a fob (like a car remote) which opens the house door.
So, an unusual set-up to the hotel which create a rather odd ambiance, but if you need a place to stay in Locarno then it is absolutely fine.
