The terrace have chairs and a table to have a relaxing time while enjoying the view of the mountains, lake and the life style of the Italian-Swiss . Breakfast is included and you have a selection...

We were visiting from Canada and really enjoyed our stay. We were able to communicate with the staff in either French or English considering we don't speak German or Italian. They were very accommodating, helping us find specific items in town and letting us use their printer. The breakfast was fresh and very tasty. It's also located in a cozy...

I found this hotel via the local tourist office after a terrible experience with a supposedly top-end hotel outside Locarno. See my reivew of Palazzo Gamboni in Comologno. While being at the budget end of the market the propretress went out of her way to find me a room for two nights. The room was small but spotlessly clean with...

We are staying in Rondinella every summer for more than 10 years and always look forward to coming back. Nice, homely and family run for several generations, it is now a modern hotel superbly located on the lake shore overlooking Locarno Bay. Spacious rooms are air conditioned and boast fantastic views from the balconies over Lago Maggiore and the mountains....

We knew this was a budget hotel and we had got a special rate of 400chf for four nights, but this was still bad value. We drove to Locarno as we live in Switzerland and had been led to believe that there was parking. We parked in the small public carpark outside the building, 2chf per hour and went up...

Location of the hotel is good - close to train station and with nice view towards the lake but one major problem - it is located on the main street in Locarno and traffic noise is 24hrs non-stop. If you fancy some sleep, if is almost impossible with the windows open. And it is too hot and stuffy to sleep...

I enjoyed my recent stay at Garni Rondinella. The owners are very nice, the rooms clean and comfortable and the location is the best in Locarno. The hotel is very easy to find from the train station and most rooms have a view of Lake Maggiore. It is in the heart of Locarno, so the hotel is very convenient to...
