This hotel let you forget the daily stress. idealy placed not too far from the city of ascona - you can easily take a bike the hotel puts at your disposal. aswell easy to reach nearby cities as asscona, lugano or even milano. the food is excellent and a lot of choice for vegetarian and this is the normal retaurant....

Set in fantastic grounds, in a villa like setting, this is luxury at its best. Did not get to stay at this hotel but did enjoy afternoon tea here with friends and everything about the hotel is superb. The dining areas, the sitting area and the outdoor settings are perfect in every way make it a most diving relaxing space.

when booking "southfacing suite" you assume something with a view? right? not in this place! here you get a suite with a balcony directly facing into the toilet windows of the building in front (see the photo attached...) the setting of the hotel as such and the interiors are nice. reception staff and concierge are very helpful. not so much...

Although this great hotel is expensive (!) it was worthwhile to stay there. With two kids (2,4) it was a good choice to get for a suite with separate bedroom. very clean and modern room, great view (north, morning sun). Breakfast perfect, service as well. Thank you Nicole for taking care of all the kids, you did a great job!...

This hotel has to have the friendliest service in Europe. The staff are all over you from the time you book in, to the welcome drinks to check out. The breakfast is to die for, probably the best we have had anywhere!

I spent a night at the Hotel Giardino in Ascona as I had organized there the Dinner for my birthday. First of all a few words about the restaurant Ecco where the party took place. Even if we were 42 people everything was perfectly organized it was absolutely an amazing night for me and the others guests. The Hotel Giardino...

The Giardino isa very good hotel with prefect service and very dedicated people serving you whatever you need. Nevertheless the hotel has something "theme park stile" – showing a "Ticino" for tourists... but this is not a critic as you will enjoy it...

The name that now unites all Giardino Retreats and Resorts was born here. The hotel Giardino Ascona combines a laid-back ambience, a high-level of service and charismatic design to a place of Mediterranean savoir-vivre. Breathe, relax, stroll, chill, move, marvel or simply enjoy - this Soul Retreat provides undiluted relaxation with character. At the Giardino Ascona there are plenty of gastronomic surprises with the Aphrodite or Poolside restaurants. The culinary highlight is undisputably the Ecco restaurant which has been awarded with two Michelin stars. It stands for outstanding aroma cuisine and puristic intensity, which is restaged every day through the inspired ideas of Executive Chef Rolf Fliegauf. The dipiù Spa promises a world of vitality, beauty and equilibrium and offers ample space to find peace to strengthen body and soul. With its products and treatments dipiù proves that it stands for quality, authenticity and sustainability. ... more   less
