How to Get There
We stayed here 3 nights at the start of our road trip through Switzerland and wished we had stayed longer. The hotel is gorgeous and within easy access to hiking in the Alps (a cable car up to the mountains is about 1 block from the hotel) and the hotel is a convenient base for exploring the beautiful, lakeside towns in the region. The food at the hotel was fabulous: my husband and I, literally, gained 2 lbs each, during our stay. How is that even possible - with all the hiking we did??!!! The staff were very personable and incredibly helpful - giving great advice on exploring the area, including details, like the best places to park when visiting the nearby towns. And, to top it all off, there are breath-taking views no matter where you are in the hotel.
I understand every room in this property offers views of Lago Maggiore - this is certainly worth the premium for the hotel. The suites are light, airy, well decorated with fantastic views of Lago Maggiore. Service was great with the restaurant being able to seat us early for an evening meal as we were with our daughter who was 9 months at the time. This was greatly appreciated. It rained on one of the days and so we didn't get to enjoy the pool/bar area. We did use the indoor spa facilities which were nice. Breakfast was enjoyable, with prompt service. There is a restaurant opposite the hotel which I'd highly recommend, it is of course cheaper than dining in the hotel restaurant. We opted for valet parking, much needed. Overall, a fantastic boutique yet spacious property, with great service, decor and views.
The hotel is located high above Lago Maggiore with almost a 360o view of the lake and the city of Locarno below. The hotel reminds me of a luxury villa in Ticino. It can be reached both by car and by the Funicolare, a train that goes straight up the mountain from Locarno center. You can visit all restaurants in the town and go to your hotel hassle free-no parking or maneuvering of cars! Not only is Locarno at your feet but you can walk over to the air lift leading up to Cardada mountain and enjoy a hike in a typical Swiss alpine region.
