Location is great, staff are good and welcoming and hotel has a lot of character. On the downside, the slightest movement causes the beds to creak loudly (the worst of any hotel I've stayed at), the laminate flooring creaks and the door too. You can barely move in the room without something making a noise!

"Quaint hotel with great staff"
Hotel Alexandra was a 15 minute or so walk uphill from the train station. Third floor room had some low beams to duck under, and shower and toilet facilities were shared. Room was very clean and we had a view of lake from our window. Breakfast was very nice, and well worth it with the high price of restaurants in Switzerland. We left an item in the room and they mailed it to us, which was really nice of them. Enjoyed our stay here.

"Recommended..... I'll be back!!"
A very comfortable, Quiet, Clean, friendly and accomodating Hotel on a Bus route and at an affordable price considering its location Situated between Tenero and Locarno and only 5 mins drive from the fabulous town of Ascona. Breakfast buffet was very basic and the only negetive comment that we have.

"Super (Preis-) Leistung und nette Bedienung"
Wir waren im obersten 3.Stock mit Gemeinschaftsdusche. Dies und der beim Betreten etwas knarzende Boden im Gang war das einzige, das nicht super war. Da wir nach 21h ankamen, fanden wir unseren Zimmerschlüssel und einen Hinweis darauf im Briefkasten, was ich sehr schätzte. Das Zimmer war relativ neu, "heimelig" renoviert und sauber. Das Frühstück ist zwarsowohl quantitativ als auch qualitativ nicht hervorragend, aber gut genug. Das Ehepaar(?) führt das Hotel sehr herzlich und wir wurden äusserst gut behandelt. Nicht zuletzt wegen des relativ tiefen Preis ist das Hotel wirklich sehr empfehlenswert!

"Hübsches kleines Hotel in Locarno"
Wir waren eine Nacht in Locarno. Das Hotel liegt ca. 600 m vom Bahnhof und der Fussgängerzone, leider steil bergan, ein Bus hält aber direkt vor der Tür. Wir wurden sehr freundlich in deutsch empfangen und mit den notwendigen Informationen versorgt. Das Frühstück war gut. Die Einrichtung ist nicht neu oder hochmodern, aber in sehr gutem Zustand und funktional. Nicht optimal wie an vielen Orten in Locarno war der Verkehrslärm, wir hatten ein Zimmer zur Strasse hin. Einziges Manko: Bei geschlossenen Fenster war das kein Problem, aber bei Nutzung des Balkons war dies nicht angenehm. Fazit: Das 2-Sterne-Hotel war besser als viele 4-Sterne-Hotels im benachbarten Italien.

"Bon rapport qualité prix et excellent accueil."
Chambre bien rénovée et accueillante. Personnel très sympa et aidant. Architecture de charme, aussi bien à l'intérieur qu'à l'extérieur, toutefois la situation n'est pas des plus idéales au bord d'une rue très fréquentée. La climatisation fait un peu trop de bruit la nuit.

Das Zimmer war gemütlich eingerichtet und mit einem Waschbecken ausgestattet - ich habe ein Zimmer mit Gemeinschaftsbad gebucht. Es gab keinen Haartrockner und der Stecker von meinem Haartrockner passte nicht in die Steckdose. Ich weiß nicht, ob es Adapter gab, da ich danach nicht gefragt habe. Das Frühstück war sehr gut - es gab sogar frisches Obst. Das Preisleistungsverhältnis ist sehr gut.

"Gewoon een goed, net hotel"
Gewoon een net hotel met alle basisbehoefte. Als je op de bovenste verdieping zit, dan zijn het toilet en de douche wel gedeeld, maar dit heeft dan weer een effect op de prijs. 1 punt van kritiek is dat je de airco niet uit kan zetten en dat deze na 12 uur 's nachts nog niet uitgaat. Dit is niet prettig als je wilt slapen.

"Gute Budgetvariante in Locarno"
Rooms with shared bathroom (3rd floor) are little dark, just small windows. The ceilings are low (watch your head). The shared shower needs remediation. Remote control was not available in the room. Prefer next time rooms on 2nd floor; much nicer! Staff is friendly, more like a family run B&B in Italy than a hotel. But for a short time stay in Locarno it's a good deal!

"Good location, Clean, and Affordable"
09/17/15 Jess M Porthmadog, United Kingdom
The Hotel Alexandra is a beautiful building with a lot of charm. The prices are reasonable and the staff were all very friendly, accommodating and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable and I can happily recommend this hotel to anyone on a budget!

"Decent hotel"
08/21/15 tunewitsch Fribourg, Switzerland
We loved this hotel during the Locarno Film Festival, although it implies a km long (moderate) ascent when returning from a long day spent watching movies, hurrying between cinemas.When visiting Locarno, take the steepest descent to the lake and stroll along it on your way to the old city. The double windows offer a perfect acoustic isolation from the noisy road passing in front of the hotel, and the automatically controlled aircon provides decent room temperatures, also during the hottest summer days.

"Nice small hotel in a beautiful building"
04/05/15 turtlezurich Zurich
Small hotel in a beautiful traditional Ticino house. The rooms's furniture and fittings are functional (despite the romantic building) and the bathrooms are tiny, but everything is clean and well kept. No luxury but everything you need at good value. Ask for a room on the back (no traffic noise). The staff (Luigi) is very friendly and helpful. Good location: five minutes walk to the lake and nice restaurants and 10 minutes walk to the railway station.

"Comfortable room for its price, friendly staff and great location"
09/12/14 FredericoGanz
Hotel Alexandra was a happy discovery for me and my girlfriend as we stayed two nights in Locarno! The staff was very friendly and efficient since our arrival, breakfast was of good quality and the prices were quite unmatchable for the average of the town. Room was nothing luxurious, but we were there to see the town so it was very good for us actually. As for its location, the hotel is pretty much in the heart of the tiny town, with easy access to the best points, either on foot or by bus!

We stayed for one night in this charming Hotel. The staffs are very friendly speaks English and German! They let us stay in the Room till 12am. we got extra Towels. The room was clean, the bathroom modern with hairdryer. Room with TV (international Channels) and mini Bar and Coffeemaker (kind of expensive CHF 4.00 for a coffee) The garden is very nice with a launch. No elevator. Parking cost CHF per night (was not on the webside). The hotel close early, The bar was closed after 11pm. A perfect Hotel for a weekend trip, close to the City..

"Nice rooms, great food"
08/07/13 AndreaP555 Calgary, Alberta, Canada
We got a great deal on a two night stay here in June. The room was extremely clean and quite nice, breakfast was tasty. The only down side to this hotel is the location, it's a bit of a walk to the main area of town (as it's actually in Muralto). However, our train pass included public transit so we were able to ride the bus for free which was convenient and ran pretty frequently.

"personal service and great value"
10/23/12 kgustaf Geneva, Switzerland
My sister and I shared a room on the top floor, where the toilet and showers are for the entire floor. The room (30) was in excellent condition but also full of character. Ten minutes walk from train station at an average young adult pace. No elevator. Breakfast was generous and complete, with top-notch bread, cheese, juice, meat, yogurt, coffee. Definitely a good value at 80 frs, but this was during the low season.

"Nice hotel , staff & price"
07/09/12 Susanne101 Kelowna, Canada
Wonderful Hotel (old Villa, love the high ceilings) recently renovated , close to Locarno train station. We got a warm welcome and tips on what to do while in the aerea. Our room faced the back of the building , I thought it was quieter than the the ones with lake view.(not sure how many can see the lake) Romms not huge but perfect for me , very clean . Breakfast simple but really all you need to get going fresh Juice, coffee ,fruits , yogourt , 3 diverent kinds of bread , cereals, a bit of cold cut & cheese. There is also a nice sitting aerea outside , dinner available need to make reservation in the morning. If arriving by train get the bus # 1 going to Muralto get off at stazione Sociale the Hotel will be across from the bus stop. (only a few minutes ride) If without luagagge its an easy walk into Locarno, famous for it's lake promenade dotted with restaurants. I really enjoyed the old part of Locarno. Must see is the Madoona del Sasso perching high above Locarno. Easy to get by funiculare or a steep walk but defently worth the effort. Stunning vistas from above , beautiful renovated church , amazing frescoes inside! I would go back to Hotel Alexandra anytime !
