The staff, location, views, swimming pool, and breakfast were all fantastic.
The view, thats about it really!
Everything, shabby, poorly run, awful location with nothing at all in the local area, a proper fawlty towers setup. Website is VERY selective over the photos it shows, trust me, the reality is far worse.
The location as such is beautiful with a gorgeous view on the Lake of Locarno. I liked the single room with lake-view as it fully covered my needs. Very clean, everything functioned well and the bed was very good. Great breakfast with big variety and friendly personnel. Good price/quality ratio. Next time, I would certainly like to taste the "Gilde"-rated Restaurant, preferably in summer on the nice terrace.
I wanted to check-in at around 2 pm as I met with friends just after. Check-in was only possible at 17:00. For me no problem at all but for a family or else, this might be different. On the other hand it was beginning of November with rather bad weather and correspondingly low frequency early afternoon. But, as far as I could see, a telephone number was written down, possibly enabling an earlier, individual check-in between 14:00 and 17:00.
Cosy place with clean rooms. Walking distance to Ascona with many good restaurants. Good window view.
Was very dissapointed with the receptionist, which actually ended up being a director of the place. First of all, during check-in I got informed that swimming pool is not working (no warning before, no message during booking, nothing). I was upset cause I have picked this place for the swimming pool. Secondly, I had troubles with connecting my phone and laptop to Wi-Fi (for me and my mother) on what I got an absolutely unacceptable and rude comment that it is my mum's Russian phone that is not functioning well. I got internet in the end only for one device and with such an attitude that I should be grateful for it. I have travelled around quite a lot, but honestly don't remember being that disappointed with the service.
The location was beautiful
They have the terrace of the restaurant close to the main road and it is very noisy. The rooms are very old and the bathroom not renovated. The quality doesnt match with the value. The beds and pillows are extremely unconfortable. The mountain views are awful. Just a wall of ground out of the window
With a stay at Hotel Arancio in Ascona, you'll be a 3-minute walk from Lake Maggiore and within a 5-minute drive of Brissago Islands. Featured amenities include complimentary newspapers in the lobby, luggage storage, and a safe deposit box at the front desk. Free self parking is available onsite.
