              Comfortable Hotel, friendly staff, late check out time (12.00 AM), perfect located in Locarno

              Parking space always a problem at Locarno promenade

            • Couple
              10.0

              It was a very good room with enormous bathroom beautifully designed. As always in Ramada - comfortable beds. Free parking at the back side of the hotel. It is situated in the center of Locarno.The town is a very beautiful and pleasant place, not so noisy as Lugano. A wonderful choice for a peaceful weekend for admiration of outstanding views and enjoying the life. After this trip you would like to work harder to visit this place more often :)

            • Couple
              7.0

              Location is good, good last minute room rate. Very spacious bedroom and bathroom.

              Outdated decor.

              7.0

              Good Location

              Unclear condition of Parking Place

            • Couple
              8.8

              Free parking, hotel location, efficient staff, facilities.

            • Older travelers
              5.4

              Good location only meters away from lakeside walk and minutes rom Locarno downtown

              Unpleasant mix of various styles of many stages of renovation an chnage over the past 40 years. Room are clean, but of age and a bit shabby. Not really 4* worthy. Personnel only recuctantly helping.

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              The location is excellent. Easy access to the lake and the old town. We stayed in late April, the price was very reasonable and we had a very spacious room with lake view. Despite located on the lake road it was not very noisy probably because it was not peak season yet. Breakfast was very good. Overall unbeatable price performance. I definitely will stay there again if the price continuous to be that reasonable.

              They have private parking but hardly enough for hotel guests. You can park along the street but I think if you go during peak summer season you will have a hard time finding parking.

            • Family with children
              7.4

              Easy access from train; good size room well maintained; balcony with nice view over lake; easy access to town; safe areas to play outside for toddler; budget breakfast very adequate; friendly and obliging staff.

              The room was not very child-friendly - no kettle in room so we couldn't boil water for baby milk or for our own morning/evening drinks. These had to be bought expensively from the hotel; balcony not very safe for an adventurous toddler.

            • Older travelers
              5.8

              Location

              This is not a 4 star hotel, the bedrooms are 30 years out of date.

            • Older travelers
              4.6

              Needs renovation. Everything is old and poor looking.

            • Family with children
              6.6

              location is great!

              no parking available at the hotel (only the max. 4 hours in front of the hotel, what is not very convenient if you would like to park longer e.g. for a boat trip), very old rooms, the hotel needs renovation.
