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.

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.
Loved this place located in the center of Locarno. Oozes charm with different themed rooms. Managed by two sisters, you can tell that they love the place and want to take care of their guests. Rare to find such helpful owners in the city. Lots of tips on getting around and parking (not an easy feat in this town). Even an iPad was provided for the room.
The hotel itself itself is quite nice, the staff is friendly and the rooms are well equipped. Breakfast buffet is good and has a large selection. The view is pretty stunning from the room and also from the breakfast room. We dined there once and the food was amazing.
The spa are is lovely but it doesn't have a jacuzzi. The pool was quite cold (we were there in February).
On the hillside, 5 mins. from the Piazza. An insiders'tip. Exquisite architecture, recreation and activities. Varied regional …More
Although the rooms were small, they were very clean and the location was excellent, very close to the lake and within walking distance to the train, all other transportation, shopping, and the old plaza. The personnel at the hotel couldn't have been more helpful or courteous. The full continental breakfasts were more than adequate. Having stayed in Locarno several times, we would definitely choose this hotel again.

Located where the River Maggia flows into Lake Maggiore, Locarno boasts the mildest climate in Switzerland. Shops, restaurants, and cafés fill the bustling Piazza Grande and each August the piazza becomes an outdoor cinema for the International Film Festival. Narrow streets wind through Old Town leading to the archaeological museum housed in a medieval castle. From a rocky hilltop, the Sanctuary of the Madonna del Sasso overlooks the city below.
