Premium Hotel in Locarno for a one night stayPosted Nov 29, 2017
Pros: Nice view of Lago Maggiore from room.
Cons: Decor probably needs an up-date.
Location: Location, being walking distance from the centre of Locarno is good as long as you can walk up and down step inclines
In the last week of November, not much choice in Locarno at the premium level for a one night stay, but the Belvedere was adequate. Due to the limited period of our visit, did not visit the spa/wellness, so could not comment on that which was offered by the hotel. Diner was very good but extremely expensive, despite choosing the very cheapest bottle of wine (which was excellent) - more costly than that which would be charged by the very best restaurant in London. However, due to the time of year, had little choice to eat in Locarno as many restaurants were closed. Receptionist was helpful on arrival but was less amicable at departure. Rooms need more power-points to enable computers and mobile phones to be charged simultaneously. As with all European hotels, sadly, no marmalade at breakfast - would have thought that, by now, Europeans would have gathered that everyone from North of the Channel have marmalade for breakfast!!! Next time, will look for a better value for money hotel in Locarno.

Reasonable hotel not far from town centrePosted Jul 17, 2017
Pros: quiet location , not too far from town centre.
Cons: Wi Fi connection should be improved... keeps dropping out and having to reconnect.
Location: short trips to Italy or a short ride up to mountain.
Nice spacious room. Location... green, quiet with good pool. Unfortunately, complimentary water is provided only once on check-in... whether you stay 1 night or 5 nights... not understandable :-( Parking is charged daily even though there is garage and plenty of grounds in the hotel and not in middle /town centre. :-(

Perfect hotelPosted Jul 10, 2017 on CheapTickets
Great hotel, great location, comfortable beds and pillows and they offer a selection of pillows to order if needed. Thier amenities were spectacular, and clean swimming pool, steam room, sauna, and aroma room. The garden was beautiful, with giant chess board and table tennis. Very friendly staff and helpful, the restaurant and bar was amazing.
Great HotelPosted Jul 9, 2017 on Hotels
Wonderful hotel. Great service and very friendly staff. Good location and great views, facilities, breakfast. Only draw back the walk up the hill but they do have discount funicular tickets that get you to hotel quickly.
Beautiful LocarnoPosted May 30, 2017 on Hotels
The hotel had a pool and steam room and sauna that was wonderful to use. Breakfast was included and it was quite good. The funicular next to the hotel was great transportation both into town and up the mountain. Fantastic views of the Alps at the top! Loved Locarno and Lake Maggiorre
brief stayi n LocarnoPosted Mar 9, 2017 on Hotels
Very comfortable, small balcony with great view of both mountains and lake. Unfortunately for us it rained for much of the two days we were there. Also disappointed that the boats were not yet working on the lake. Hotel was fine with a furnicular railway leading up to it from the lakeside. Again the trip would have been better if it had run more regularly and later in the evening. This is the case in summer.

After two days hiking in Ticino, we capped off our Swiss holiday at the Belvedere. The staff was outstanding, the room was beautiful (recently renovated), and the complimentary wellness area was just what we needed! Hotel hallways & elevators could use an update.
