It was a standard 4 star hotel , room amenities could be upgraded .
No 24 hour reception, key system (after 8pm )not explained to guests . Breakfast not kept replenished , on both mornings items ran out and no further eggs, cheese or hams where bought out. This is not good when you have 12 guests eating only bread and fruit for breakfast.
Friendly service & good food & wine. Great views.
The location, view to the lake and view in general, pool and the garden, parking,
Breakfast buffet was poor, the bar closed before 23:00 and we have been advised to use the minibar instead,
Dinner room reminds us more the ambiance of an hospital than a nice hotel.
Attention from the reception staff upon arrival was excellent,very polite and very courteous.Assistance was very good in all aspects and we are looking forward to our next stay at this hotel.Our second visit will be for our first wedding anniversary.
The friendlyness of all the staff.
This is a nice hotel, but it is quite high above the lake, so to walk into the center of Ascona is not very convenient. There are plenty of free parking. An excellent and varied breakfast
The most beautiful hotel and view in Ascona. The hotel staff were first class!!
The hotel staff are fantastic and very helpful.
expensive, no airconditioning
Good location with nice view out to the lake. Substantial buffet breakfast eating out on the terrace. Good parking facilities
It was very hot during our stay and it would have been nice to have air conditioning in our room.
Service from staff was great
Thought the hotel was a bit dated - design felt 1970s. The view to the lake is okay - you see the lake, but it's not directly ahead and you look over other properties include lots of blocks of flats... I booked because of quotes saying an amazing lake view, and I wouldn't agree with this.
The location is excellent. The hotel is located less than 5 minute walk from the town center. This way there is no need to look for parking when going to town(you can leave the car conveniently parked at the hotel), and once you come back you are guaranteed absolute quiet. The room was spacious, clean and had an amazing view. The included breakfast was exquisite, and was served on a terrace offering a breathtaking view of the region. The staff was very friendly and always looked after us, which was really helpful since we were traveling with our month and a half old son. Wish we could have stayed longer, fortunately there is always next year.
We had a wonderful time on our vacation. Hotel Ascona is located on a small hill overviewing the entire region. The view from our room's terrace was breathtaking. The room was modern and the bed very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious: a big choice of warm and cold buffet, and the terrace offered a similar view setting as the one we had from our room. It took us three minutes to walk down to the center of town, and another three to reach the picturesque waterfront called 'piazza'. This way we were able to leave our car conveniently parked at the hotel not needing to find a parking spot in the town, which are quite limited, and didn't need to worry about drinking and driving while on vacation. And once back at the hotel we enjoyed complete silence and no disruption at all. Can't wait to come back next year again
My whole family liked the hotel. The swimming pool was beautiful, the breakfast excellent, we just loved it. We would come back any time. Also I need to mention the scenery.
The hotel offered us an upgrade and a welcome drink!
Very good service and high level of luxury
Strenuous to find since high on hill behind main town
