You pay for the location

Posted May 22, 2015
Location is A1 and overall it is not bad. Front desk was very helpful and supportive.Mattress ok but bed frame was terrible.You want to make sure you book lake view because that is what you pay for. No elevator with lake view rooms. Otherwise better value elsewhere if you don't need promenade location. If a couple weekend getting away for nice romance then fine (if they fix the bed frames, not taking into consideration consumation activities). Ascona is quite small so most places are 5-10 min walk to promenade and restaurants. Check google map.

Great weekend getaway

Posted Apr 8, 2015 on Hotels
It was a fantastic place to stay at. We used Ascona as our base of operations to drive out to lots of different places each day. The hotel has a parking service for 15 CHF per day at an underground parking 5 min walk away. The wifi is free and has a strong signal (strong enough to stream Netflix and iTunes movies). The breakfast was delicious and varied. The beds are comfortable and warm (only suggestion: ask for a second pillow if you need it). The room is sparsely decorated but it has everything you need. The bathroom is modern and clean, very hot water which is great after a long day. It's worth paying a little extra to have a room with a balcony view so you can sit outside and enjoy the sunshine. That said, you can also pop downstairs to the bar/restaurant that looks onto the piazza / quay too. The hotel staff all speak English and German, so even if you try your basic Italian, they will reply in something you can speak :)

Preis- Leistung stimmt nicht.

Posted Sep 25, 2014 on Hotels
Lage sehr gut. Receprionistin freundlich. Zimmer sehr klein. Keine Klimaanlage. Balkon war O K. Kein Safe, keine Minibar. Service im Restaurant (Wartesaal) zu wenig aufmerksames Personal. Schade für den Umsatz. Bei Gesamtbetrachtung stimmt Preis- Leistungsvergältnis nicht. Werden nächstes Hotel in Italien buchen und von dort aus Ascona besuchen.

Ausgezeichnete Lage, durchschnittliches Zimmer

Posted Jul 30, 2014 on Hotels
Das Zimmer entsprach nicht unseren Vorstellungen. Die Bilder der Räumlichkeiten entsprechen nicht dem, was wir bekommen haben. Unser Zimmer war sehr spartanisch eingerichtet. Es fehlte ebenso an liebevollen Details. Das Buffet und Essen war gut und der Service schnell. Jedoch bemerkte man, dass der Service auf Masse (Viele Kunden so schnell wie möglich) bedient und somit auch die Freundlichkeit gegenüber den Kunden sehr zu wüschen übrig lässt. Die Hotellage ist ausgezeichnet. Teilsweise aber nerfig, dass an der Seepromenade von Dritten teils früh morgens und spät Abends Krach gemacht wird (Veranstaltungen, Aufbau von Markt 6.30 Uhr...).
