Generally good value. Did not notice that my room rate ($100) was for a shared bathroom and shower. (My fault for not reading fine print). Very clean facilities. No elevator to third floor. Garage parking spaces small and tight to get into. Free breakfast and friendly staff.

We were a bit late to book, so we were lucky to get a room in Hotel Alexandra which is located conveniently near Locarno train station. The rooms are ok and clean. Ours which led to the back yard was also quiet - the ones leading to the street maybe less. Unfortunately, the charm of the building you see from...

This is a very nice hotel at a fair price. When they say 10 minutes walk from the train station they don't mention it is uphill all the way. Fine if you are quite fit. Also, having confirmed and reconfirmed twin beds, we had to take a double the first night. And, we had to pack up and move the...

The Hotel Alexandra is a beautiful building with a lot of charm. The prices are reasonable and the staff were all very friendly, accommodating and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable and I can happily recommend this hotel to anyone on a budget!

We loved this hotel during the Locarno Film Festival, although it implies a km long (moderate) ascent when returning from a long day spent watching movies, hurrying between cinemas.When visiting Locarno, take the steepest descent to the lake and stroll along it on your way to the old city. The double windows offer a perfect acoustic isolation from the noisy...

Small hotel in a beautiful traditional Ticino house. The rooms's furniture and fittings are functional (despite the romantic building) and the bathrooms are tiny, but everything is clean and well kept. No luxury but everything you need at good value. Ask for a room on the back (no traffic noise). The staff (Luigi) is very friendly and helpful. Good location:...

Hotel Alexandra was a happy discovery for me and my girlfriend as we stayed two nights in Locarno! The staff was very friendly and efficient since our arrival, breakfast was of good quality and the prices were quite unmatchable for the average of the town. Room was nothing luxurious, but we were there to see the town so it was...

We got a great deal on a two night stay here in June. The room was extremely clean and quite nice, breakfast was tasty. The only down side to this hotel is the location, it's a bit of a walk to the main area of town (as it's actually in Muralto). However, our train pass included public transit so we...
