    The excellent service. Map of the city with explanation at arrival. There was no elevator, but the staff carried the suitcase up for us. The staff also printed of the itenerary for the trainjourney to Lugano Airport for us.

    Superb

    Very clean and pretty room complete with everything expected in a hotel room when you change cities everyday. It was comfortable and welcoming, we wanted to spend some time in the room. Price reasonable, especially including a breakfast with good coffee. Staff member who was present the whole time was very sympathetic and helpful to orient us in the town.

    We enjoyed Hotel Alexandria, the manager gave us excellent personal service, the hotel was clean, the rooms and beds comfortable, and the location good although a little out of the centre of town. The breakfast was also good.

    Superb

    We enjoy nearly everything. Very nice hotel, attentive staff, nice location: 7-10 mins to city heart, 100 m to Migros supermarket; good breakfast. Next time we will stay with pleasure in Alexandra but will chose non-attic rooms.

    No lift. We lived at attic (4 or 5 floor) and have to brought our goods on our shoulders up and down. For sure, the man on reception proposed his help but its not suitable looking for him everytime. Too low ceilings in the rooms in the attic: for the people higher that 170-180 sm we would not recommend to rent such rooms - you'll be constantly bumping heads on the wooden beams)). Weak WiFi signal in our room but its ok, there is really free access in public space.

    Good

    Were given a choice of rooms (back - quieter, or front - fronting on to road, but with balcony). Room fair size, small ensuite. Breakfast 5/10 - had to wait for coffee on 2nd morning - (only one person manning the reception and breakfast room - but he did bring us down to the train station when we were leaving!). Location: About 10 minutes walk down to main town - a good 15-20 minutes walk back up the hill! - There is a bus that stops, every half hour or so, 20m from the door that can bring you down..

    Location not great. Could do with more front of house staff?

    Very nice hotel - a little out of town centre but very quiet and comfortable. Good breakfast selection. Staff very helpful and it was nice to have a complementary pick up from rail station

    we used the the hotel for a one night stop on our way to Elba - it was ideal, excellent breakfast and despite being on one of the roads into the town, very quiet.

    Fabulous

    The general outlook of the hotel perfectly suits the atmosphere of Locarno, being an old mediterrinian house surrounded with small garden, which greated us with a burst of sweet smell when we arrived. The room was spacious enough for the two of us. Both reception managers were very friendly and helpful. One of them even ironed my shirt personally. While another gave us many nice tips on what to do and see in Locarno.

    Superb

    The guy at the reception was extremely kind. He was also serving the breakfast. He even allowed us to choose a room among the available ones.

    The bathroom is a bit small but it was not something we could not live with.

    Guest rating

    Large room, location ok for visiting the area, some of the staff were very friendly and helpful.

    Shared shower and wc, some of the staff neither friendly nor helpful, poor room to room isolation (we could hear everything), only one tiny window in our room, ugly decoration, wifi not working on top floor

  • 7.8
    Fabulous

    Attentiveness of staff, particularly the male receptionist, who also served breakfast. This was one of the finest examples of such service I have ever encountered in any hotel.The breakfast was also outstanding. The hotel did a brilliant job of providing an enjoyable one night stop- off place on our drive to Italy. Good view of lake from room.

    Some noise, but this is easily offset by the price. Value is indicated as 'fair', but that is only because the Lakes are very expensive. Compared to other hotels in the area, this one offers excellent value.
