Small hotel right on the plaza (you have access to unload the car). Our room was on the 3rd floor without balcony. It was large and clean with a roof window facing the lake. Bathroom was also spacious and clean. The receptionists were exceptionally helpful. The hotel is a little bit dated but I understand will be renovated in the... More

Situated right opposite the ferry landing, so rooms have a lovely view over the lake, of passers-by, arrivals and departures. (It might be easier to arrive from Locarno by boat, than take one of 2 buses to Ascona centre.) Market stalls once a week. Statues vivantes and buskers. The hotel is simple, very clean and pleasant, a good find. 10%... More

We came for coffee and desserts during our short stay in Ascona. A great location with excellent view over the lake and promenade made our visit joyful. Coffees and desserts tasted great and service was friendly and attentive. Next time we should try to stay overnight.
