The room and the view. The pool and spa close at 8 pm, which is a bit too early.
My family and I especially enjoyed the "tea/coffee" round-the-clock facilities which made staying in the la Meridiana "very homely"!
High speed internet is a pain. You have to pay a lot for it, but it does work at a good speed.
The location, beautiful in front of the lake. Big terrace with a lovely view! The rooms were big enough for two (comfort), free coffee - tea the whole day, friendly staff. Great restaurant just below the hotel! Small Spa, very cosy! there is nothing negative to say about la meridiana
The location on Lago Maggiore is perfect, the room matched our expectations perfectly.
High quality of the hotel and cleanliness of room. Staff was excellent, breakfast and reading room were very nice. Balcony overlooking Lago Maggiore. Excellent restaurants nearby.
Very good location,comfortable and clean with a good staff.Also has a goog breakfast Buffet.
Th elocation to the lake and the village I did not like the staff, all were rude. We were only informed on the last day by other guests there was access to the side of the property that we could use to bring the baby pram inot the property. All the staff at this property had watched me more than once carry a 20 kg child and a baby pram up the stairs by myself without offering any help or advice about how to get into the property easier. The front counter staff were rude. They have little local knowledge. If they had any is was not available in English. They would not even say hello when we walked past from reception.
it is a nice well situated hotel with the direct view on the lake,nice ambiente and clean wellness
swimming pool, breakfast on the terrasse, good free coffee at any time
Friendly & helpful staff. Pleasant reasonable size bedroom. It was very hot, only had ceiling fan in the bedroom, it needed air conditioning
locality car parking, only one english newschannel, best tables at breakfast reserved for german speaking couples,no one explained breakfast procedure only when we were leaving did we gather you could order eggs
quite good hotel with swimming pool and sauna.
Nice room Dining room was a bit basic
I booked a single room for 1 person, but I got a double room for 2 people, so my friend could also sleep with me. :-)) Thank you..! The hotel web site says "bus 31 to the hotel from Locarono". We caught bus number 1 on Friday night at 11.30pm, and went to San Marteno.
The location, the staff, the secure on site parking. Very child friendly.
Convenient location for Ascona
The staff was relativ polite and willing to help. However the hotel did not satisfy us Very old and poor facilities, I do not think that was worth the money we have spent. I would not recommend this hotel for relaxation and vacation
Friendly staff and clean rooms. Patient with children. The decor seemed a little old fashioned (although in perfect working order).
The pool. No airconditioning (staff claimed there are no airconditioned rooms although the guest direectory indicated otherwise), reception mostly unmanned, terrible staff attitude, certainly not value for money.
The most beautiful hotel and view in Ascona. The hotel staff were first class!!
It has a very nice view of the Lake and surrounding mountains I agree with nother review, that a four star hotel in 2009 should have aircinditioning in the room. Also the floor covering in both therooms an general area need an upgrade
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.
Stunning view from our room as well as from the restaurant. Excellent food. Excellent service. There was no airconditioning. My assumption was that nowadays all 4 star hotels especially in warmer climates had airconditioning, so I did not check it when I booked this hotel.
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 hotel staff are fantastic and very helpful. expensive, no airconditioning
The location was superb overlooking the lake side and the rooms and balcony was spacious. THe hotel should provide some sort of taxi service from the bus station to the hotel. as the walk up to the hotel can be very tiring, especially when you just arrive. I also believe the staff can be a bit more polite.
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.
All was as described and good
good acomodations,excelent service,
Location, breakfast, large room. No shower in bathroom. Had to negotiate to use a shower in adjoining room.
We had a great vacation in Ascona and the hotel is excellent. Unbeatable location and very helpful employees. Good buffet breakfast. We would definitely stay here again. Nothing.
Very nice location, and the room of the top of the tower was very nice. Service was also very good. Staff was very friendly.
Excellent location by the lake. Beautiful building, old castle with a comfortable feeling. Gorgeous garden and excellent restaurant. The breakfast was great, too. We enjoyed our stay.
Beutifull lake view, exellent restaurants, helpfull staff. Extremely noisy (rooms looking over busy street, piano restaurant, fair ets.). Could sleep from 2 p.m. until 7 a.m. only!
front desk staff was friendly and professional the room was very basic, in particular for their price. nothing like the rooms in the pictures - more what you would expect to find in an Ibis motel. nothing provided beyond the very minimum.
The attention and service of the staff was excellent, everyone was most helpful and very courteous. The location was ideal, very convienent for all ameneties. No
In best position, across road from water, great location to restaurants; great village shops; lovely atmosphere
Everything worked fine. The attendents were very friendly. The room was okay just for sleeping, That was all we wanted. Good!!!
Friendly Staff Rooms a bit small but nice.
Hotel was clean and conveniently located. The management seemed efficient and professional. Walls are thin, so we could hear other guests more clearly than we would have liked.
Excellent service, warmhearted personel, very good breackfast, spotless hotel premisses and rooms ... would definitely go back!
The staff could not have been more helpful, arranging excursions, travel, car parking, translations etc.....
It's a primitive poor Hotel.Everything from the cheapest.
Wide and comfortable room.
nice and flexible staff location,
View from the breakfast room and the swimming pool. Would be better if staff did not assume that every guest is German and understands German language. Receptionist did not speak Italian nor French on arrival.
The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The view of Lake Maggiorre from our bedroom balcony was beautiful and the food was very good. The hotel is about 2 km from Ascona but there is a bus that runs every hour from the road below the hotel. There is a busy road below the hotel but the noise from traffic was not a problem.
Good location. Beautiful view IF you have lakeview. The room was very cheap,outdated, with burn holes in the curtain and an awful view, but also very expensive. Very bad value for money!!! The peronell wasn't very helpfull or adequate. The reception closes very early, so be sure to have arranged everything on time.
We had a room of good size with a balcony and excellent view of Lake Maggiore. The food was of high quality, very varied and accompanied by friendly service. The price was good value and to be honest having read other reviews, the hotel was far better than we expected. No
The view from the parking lot. Other than that, I can only make negative comments: far, far too expensive for what it is, unfriendly, unhelpful staff who were, at times, downright aggressive, furnishings and decor from the 50's, impossible to find even using satellite navigation. The view of the lake from the parking lot was nice. Everything else was horrendous. Do not stay at this hotel. It is a waste of (a lot of) money, to be served by unfriendly, unhelpful staff, in an ambiance which is not suited to current hotel standards (yes, I am aware that it is not a 5-star ... nonetheless there is a basic level of 'can-do' attitude which is reasonable to expect).
The service and views were great.
The triple room was ver spacious and with a beautiful view of the lake. Breakfast was ok, but it could be better. a vista do quarto é maravilhosa, o hotel é agradavel, mas o cafe da manha poderia ser melhor !
The service was excellent. Also the view over the lake is pretty nice.
odaların temizliği ve güleryüz asansör kapıları çok gürültü yapıyor.
Ki̇rli̇ çok ki̇rli̇ bi̇r otel,kesi̇nli̇kle 4 yildizi hak etmi̇yor.gece buz gi̇bi̇ydi̇ oda.yedek yorgan i̇stedi̇k tamam dedi̇ler ve geti̇rmedi̇ler.
A little difficult to find. However, on arrival after a five hour drive, we were greeted by the most friendly reception and most helpful staff encountered during a two week tour. The restaurant provided us with an excellent choice, great value and, again, wonderfully friendly service. This is our kind of hotel and would certainly recommend it to our friends. A little removed from the 'holiday scene' being situated in a more residential area but this did not present any real problems.
We enjoyed the outdoor pool and sunbathing area the most.
Very friendly, checkin Breakfast , no fruit
Friendly atmosphere , helpful staff , good food and lovely seating area for meals both inside and out. The pool area was very nice and we will happliy book in to stay there again.
We found the staff extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel was in a relaxing and peaceful location and the centre of Ascona was within easy walking distance.
The hotel was a bit off the main drag but was okay for walking to the promenade in Ascona. SWISS means pricey though... Take advantage of the pool and the good breakfasts.
Very helpful and service minded staff in the reception. Good value for the money. Free Wi-Fi in public areas. Ok breakfast included. Walking distance to town center and lake. Pool in the hotel garden and bike rental. The (free) public parking outside the hotel can be full, but the hotel staff were very helpful with arranging a free parking spot on request.
I can't remember the last time I was walked to my room - the staff at this hotel is super nice!
Very nice place for family vacations - isolated house with many facilities: drowing room, balcony, grill and terrace, private garden and pond with gold fishes + wonderfull mountains view+ parking bad noise insulation
The villa we were had nice garden. the room (3 persons) they gave us was under the roof and was really old and needs definitely some renovation (carpet, furntiture, painting). The period was certainly fully booked because they gave us a bedsheet which was too small (feets were going out!). Far too expensive for a 3 star hotel: this room was definitely not the confort of what a 3 stars hotel should normally give.
The quietness of the place Their promissed and fotogrqafed "swimmingpool in the garden" is not in their garden.
The friendly and efficient staff
noisy, overpriced, not that convenient
The view of Ascona and Lake Lugano from our "villa" was very nice - we could see the mountains and lake. There were ants in the room. Directly outside of our room was the care-takers apartment so after stepping off the elevator instead of opening the door to our room we could just as easily turned and walked into his apartment, kitchen, bathroom, etc.. because there was no door to his apartment.
Good location Absolutely no view from the single room. Parking facilities poor - but nevertheless you have to pay CHF 7 per night
Sfr. 320. for a double room with breakfast in this hotel was a little too much, the shower curtain was torn and it was replaced after I ask them to do so there was no shower cap or shampoo in the Bath room. I would consider it a Bed and breakfast and not a 3star Hotel.

Very good location, very good accommodations, very good staff.
Excellent location, nice room with good view and private balcony. Lack of information for guests, re late arrival at night, for example. No information sheet in room. Breakfast rather boring.
It is a beautiful property with a fantastic lake vista. We booked late and got their last room, unfortunately not one on the lake side. The room was small and basic, but generally clean. It did have a slightly smoky odor, despite this being a nonsmoking hotel. Staff was helpful with restaurant recommendations etc. Breakfast was very pleasant, with good European breakfast selection in sunny rooms overlooking the lake. Large reason we chose this hotel was the indoor pool. It was, again, a wonderlful location and view, but only moderately clean. TV was small with one English channel which did not work :(
The nice garden, it was very quiet in the night. I don't know more because we stay only for 1 night
Staff service level, location Some noise from ongoing construction work; rooms were cold despite central heating
All. Especially was pleased kunya.
Meals served for dinners at the restaurant were really superb by all means. Advanced charging of the room bill immediately upon our arrival although my credit cards were available to the hotel staff since I'd made the booking via website and this was our second stay at the hotel. That gesture of mistrust made us feel we were not welcome to the hotel.
all of these nothing
Overall the Hotel is a wonderful and very nice relaxing place. The garden, pools and space makes it an ideal destinatiuon for the weekend. Restaurant and cafe - good combination value for money. Gorgeous views arond the site. Close to Mendrisio shopping - 15 min by car. Rooms in Residence may need some renovation, or cosmetics at least.
Beautiful establishment, beautiful view, very helpful and polite staff. The kitchen closes too early, there is neither restaurant open nor room service after 11pm, so if you come back from a concert or other event after 10:30 there is no way to eat enything, even if you beg the staff for a plate of cheese or a simple snack, there is nothing available. For a hotel of such high category (and price) it is absolutely unacceptable.
