Lochcarron, United Kingdom
Reviewed 24 October 2016

We booked two superior type rooms here recently, for a three nights stay. Reception staff were friendly and helpful, and the rooms were fairly spacious and comfortable, with really good showers. Each room had a balcony overlooking the lake (albeit partly obscured by chestnut trees). The hotel enjoys an enviable location right on the shores of Lago Maggiore, in Piazza...

Reviewed 24 July 2016

We decided to stay in this hotel because we expected a good price-value ratio. This assumption got confirmed. The hotel is getting a bit old but the bed is comfortable, the rooms are quiet and the hotel offers all the basics you need for a stay in Ascona. Also, the staff is really friendly and always helpful. The breakfast comes...

Modern,good decor,rooms immaculate. Great shower. Our room was at the front with superb views plus we could view the jazz concerts later in the evenings. Ascona Jazz Festival held all over the town in bars, hotels and in marquees on the lakeside during late June/early July. Fabulous atmosphere. Breakfast included in our booking. Very generous with fresh hot food offered....

We had an excellent stay over the Easter weekend. This is a very friendly 3-star place - I was very happy I chose this over the 2-3 times as expensive 5-star options in Ascona, because it gives you the essence of a stay in Ascona: a direct lake view and a location in the middle of it all. What I...

Having stayed at several 3-star properties across Switzerland, this one is a gem. Albergo Carcani is located directly on the lakefront promenade offering spectacular views and easy access on foot, by boat (seasonal), bus or car to shopping, restaurants and local attractions. Newly renovated, even the smallest of rooms is modern, clean and comfortable. The front desk staff are friendly,...

As we were driving this hotel was difficult to find and sat nav didn't help. A local offered to lead us down with his car! Narrow bendy roads. Found it at last. Worth the wait.

The hotel has a good, central waterfront location in Ascona. While our first floor room was described in the booking as “lake view” (and this was technically correct), the view was largely blocked by the foliage of the trees that line the waterfront here. They were unable to move us to a higher floor as they were full. So my...

I believe Albergo Carcani, part of the Tschuggen Group originating from Arosa, is a great choice for Ascona. The location is idyllic, service is great and the rooms are quite nice. Furthermore, they have their own parking space very close by. Pre-arrival: Always prompt in replying and attending every detail. Room: Quite nice, clean and tidy, but could have taken...
