Quaint hotel with great staffPosted Jul 19, 2013 on Hotels.com
Hotel Alexandra was a 15 minute or so walk uphill from the train station. Third floor room had some low beams to duck under, and shower and toilet facilities were shared. Room was very clean and we had a view of lake from our window. Breakfast was very nice, and well worth it with the high price of restaurants in Switzerland. We left an item in the room and they mailed it to us, which was really nice of them. Enjoyed our stay here.

Great Hotel for location and valuePosted Jul 1, 2012
Pros: Loved the feel of the old building (villa) , high ceilings, old staircase,but all in tip top shape.
Location: so close to Locarno but not in the middle of all.
Great place to stay just a few minutes to by foot from the Locarno train station. I suggest if arriving by train use the bus for transfer, will stop right in front of the Hotel. (I think it was # 1, get off at stazione sociale or just ask the bus driver, runs every 15 min.) If you are without luggage it's an easy stroll to Locarno, old part of town or lake promenade. The Hotel is very clean ( recently renovated ), staff extremly friendly ask for ideas on what to do. Rooms comfortable not very big for north american standards but was no issue for me. Breakfast simple but all you really need to get going in the morning .(unless you need your eggs & bacon...) Must see : Madonna del Sasso perched on a rock above Locarno , easy to get by funiculare or by foot. (steep climb but well worth the effort) The church is under renovation but still open to visit , amazing frescoes inside the church!
