Great Hotel for location and value
Posted Jul 1, 2012
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!
