Reviewed 20 July 2016 via mobile

I travel a lot and have stayed at many luxurious places but they pale in comparison to the service and atmosphere at the Art Riposo, Ascona. The view from the roof is breathtaking and when the weather is nice the restaurant sets up an elegant display for guests to dine intimately and overlook Lake Maggorie. It's located a mere block...

The Art Hotel is set in a beautiful location near the lake and in a pedestrian zone, therefore it is extremely quiet. The lake can be viewed from the terrace where you will access to the pool which is small but set in a lush garden. The welcoming by the staff is very friendly and the room was OK though...

The Art Hotel Riposo is set in a wonderful location just minutes from the beautiful piazza of Ascona. We enjoyed a clean, spacious family suite and delicious breakfasts with wide choice. Saturday evening's jazz band were very good and the staff at the hotel were both friendly and helpful. Our kids particularly enjoyed the heated roof top pool which they...

The rooms are spacious and well appointed apart from a lack of air-conditioning, this probably presents a problem in summer as the prevailing conditions around a lake surrounded by mountains are humid. But apart from that the rooftop pool is pleasant and the views impressive. It felt expensive for what it was but that is normal in Switzerland. Good breakfast.

Thank you very much for your reply. We will review your complaint thoroughly. This summer has been rather Hot and humid all over europe, but usually our climate doesn`t require Air Conditioning. Unfortunately being a Historic house we wont be able to retrofit Air Conditioning in every room, but we will consider mounting ventilators. We hope to see you again...

This tastefully decorated family-run boutique hotel is only a few moments stroll away from the promenade in Ascona and offers great views of lake Maggiore and the surrounding hills from its roof terrace (which also has a small swimming pool) and a number of its brightly decorated rooms. Our party of two couples received a warm welcome from the owner...

We only booked for one night but were given a very warm handshake greeting when we arrived. Asked if we'd like something to drink, and having said yes please, our drinks were sent up to the roof terrace by a lift!

Great roof terrace, we spent the whole day up there enjoying the sun, swimming in the pool, and eating delicious food! Quiet place (only the jazz concert in the yard was a bit too loud for my ears), friendly staff and nice rooms, we'll be back!
