It was a bit disconcerting that only one of the hotel check-in staff knew German but still understandable given Locarno is in the Italian part. The room was very nice and gave us lots of "bang for our buck." It would have been nice to have a private bathroom, but shared between three or four rooms isn't too bad. The free breakfast was very nice.
Super clean hotel & room. Very convenient location right on Piazza Grande. Walking distance (5-10 minutes) to major attractions, including funicular to Orselina where you will have nice views over the city, lake Maggiore & Madonna del Sasso Sanctuary. Across the street at the funicular stop in Orselina, you can continue your journey to Cimetta in a Cable Car for an additional price. From the top of Cimetta, on a clear day, you can see the highest point in Switzerland at a distance (Pic Dufour) and the lowest point (Lake Maggiore). Hotel provides a parking card for 7,00 CHF per day (in-out unlimited accesses) & parking Castello is 150 meters from hotel. Breakfast Buffet is included & good choice are available.

Everything from the professional staff, to the size of the room exceeded our expectations. The pool and spa were fabulous. The Grotto was a favourite spot for afternoon dining while sun bathing on the grounds. The restaurant is a must as well. The breakfast was simply outstanding.

The lake is shared with Italy and that influence is evident in the region’s language, cuisine, and culture. Resorts towns include Ascona, known for its lakeside promenade, boutiques, and galleries; and Brissago with a narrow lakeside town center of winding alleys that ends at the foot of steep mountain ranges with panoramic vistas. In the middle of the lake are the botanical gardens of Brissago Islands featuring 1,500 varieties of plants.
