Modest accommodations, great breakfast

Posted Jul 15, 2014
Pros: The breakfast was incredible- probably the best we had in our 4 week trip.
We were excited when we saw the hotel as it looked quite elegant in the front lobby. However we were escorted across the alley to another building that was quite plain. However, the accommodations were fairly comfortable though both our windows opened to the street over the outside eating area, so there was plenty of noise. Not a big problem, though.

Friendly and on the plaza

Posted Jun 8, 2014
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.

Very well located but not that easy to find.

Average. Shared bathroom right next door and door handle kept falling off. Polished floors were quite noisey. Great breakfast selection. Very well located, but hard to find as map didnt fit actual street layout.

Great Location

Posted Aug 7, 2013 on Hotels.com
Overall we had a great stay at Dependance dell Angelo. First the positives: Location is perfect - a short walk from the train station, the cable car and the Lido. Centrally located near all the restaurants. Good value for money. The downside? The rooms are very basic - no frills here! There is no air conditioning (in the week we stayed, it was very hot and there was no air flow in the room, making it stifling). Bizarrely our beds had heavy duvets and covers (no sheets) in the middle of summer. The decor is dated - but that has its own charm. Don't eat in the restaurant (unless you are having pizza).

convenient and lovely town, but not modern hotel

Posted Jul 22, 2013 on Hotels.com
the Dependance Dell Angelo is in a beautiful location in Locarno. it's just rather expensive for a tiny room, somewhat cramped, whose shower and toilet are down the hall shared with other hotel guests. not my favorite situation. but the hotel room was clean, and the view from our room which was in the back of the building NEXT to the building we checked in at, was truly lovely. breakfast was ok, pretty typical Swiss/Italian choices and the waiter brought out some fresh items even though we ate breakfast on the late side. i'd stay there again if the price is lower during a different season.

Good location

We were put into an apartment across the street and down the alley rather than at main hotel. I thought climate control meant AC, it doesn't. We had to keep windows open at night. It was a problem since we were in Locarno for the music festival. VERY NOISY.

Good rates, but...

A perfectly adequate hotel for the price, clean and comfortable, but why do the staff have to be so off hand and disinterested, shame really, as everywhere else I went in Switzerland everyone was really friendly and helpful.

The old style hotel.

The hotel provides a good complimentary breakfast. The room is very basic. The location is far from the freeway but closed to the historic shopping center. Nice area to explore the real Switzerland.

Excellent Stay

Nice hotel in an excellent location at an excellent price. The room exceeded our expectations, and the free breakfast was a nice bonus. Would definitely stay here again.
