"Gemütliches Hotel mitten an der Seepromenade"
- Unkomplizierter und sehr freundlicher Empfang. _ Gebuchtes Zimmer konnte zu gleichem Preis getauscht und ausgelesen werden. _ Begleitung zum Hauseigenen Parkplatz. _ Das Hotel ist mitten an der Seepromenade gelegen, mit belle vue auf den See und das bunte Treiben. _ Optimaler Ausgangspunkt für die verschiedenen Ausflüge.

Wir haben uns ein Verwöhn- Wochenende gegönnt und haben in diesem Hotel genau das erwünschte erhalten. Das Hotel können wir nur weiter empfehlen. Sehr freundlicher Empfang. Einzig der Parkplatz liegt etwa 10 Minuten vom Hotel entfernt. An der Sauberkeit gibt es nichts auszusetzen und das Zimmer ist ausgezeichnet. Das Frühstück draussen im freien direkt an der Promenade ist der Hammer und es hat von allem was man sich wünscht. Der Service ist super! Gerne wieder, vielen Dank.

"Super Hotel"
Sehr sauberes und gemütliches Hotel. Einzig das uns der Mann, der uns zum Parkplatz bringen sollte, vergessen hat und wir Zweimal nachfragen mussten. Ansonsten sehr Empfehlenswert.

"Altes Hotel in Top Lage und Top Zustand"
Dekadent gut direkt an einem der schönsten Plätze der Schweiz mit vielen angenehmen Überraschungen, z. B. wo so ein Hotel die Parkplätze herbekommt. Oder gibt es wirklich kein Hotel, das in der Lage ist, eine Klimaanlage nachträglich auf vernünftige Art und Weise im Zimmer zu platzieren? Doch hier schon. Das einzige Manko war eine offensichtlich schlechte Organisation der Küche und des Servicepersonals der Küche. Die Leute an der Rezeption hingegen waren Top. Frühstück auch sehr gut, vielleicht wäre ein Obstsalat noch angebracht.

"Sehr angenehmer Aufenthalt"
Wir hatten das Glück, ein top renoviertes Zimmer im dritten Stock mit Seesicht zu erhalten. Das war genial, hat aber auch etwas gekostet. Das Frühstücksbuffet ist einfach aber es hat alles was es braucht und wir konnten direkt draussen auf der wunderschönen Piazza frühstücken. Auch der Service zum Parklplatz hat gestimmt. Würde sofort wieder so buchen.

"Pleasant Stay"
07/15/15 StuartJTA Geneva, Switzerland
I went during the jazz festival and wanted a quiet room so they put me in the annexe, having checked with me first though, as I had originally asked for a lake view room. The annexe had no aircon in rooms unfortunately, which would have been great during the heatwave we were having! However, the annexe had nice gardens and 2 outdoor pools for cooling down in. The breakfast was buffet style in main hotel (great position by lake) and was very good: tasty and wide choice (incl. bacon and scrambled eggs) and it was a pleasant walk from annexe to main hotel through the pretty narrow streets of the old town. Relaxed, friendly staff. Good wifi. Pleasant room with balcony. Good value for money for Switzerland through deal on booking.com.

My husband and I stayed here and we cherished every second. The hotel is beautiful and the location perfect. The service is wonderful. Breakfast was delicious. Plus, we borrowed two bikes for free. We love Ascona!

"Personality in a great location"
01/10/14 Itirr
The Tamaro is a lovely family-run hotel located right on Lago Maggiore in the center of Ascona. It has tons of personality; the rooms vary in size and style, the dining area and terrace are lovely and breakfast is very good. Half-pension that includes dinner is a great option too.

"Quaint little hotel in front of Lake Maggiore"
08/12/13 Prinzess_Bee KL
A quaint, good old-fashioned European hotel located in front of the Lake Maggiore, hotel Tamaro is one of the less busy hotels along the promenade. Rooms could have been recently upgraded as it had air-conditioning which was great in the 35deg heat and a clean, bright bathroom. On the contrary, the reception needs some major upgrading as it's old and musty. It was a little noisy at night because of the bars just below where our room was located. However, waking up in the morning and being greeted by the grand Lake Maggiore is just perfectness. There are also lots of different shops and restaurants behind the hotel. About 10mins walk away is a huge convenience store(COOP) and also the hotel parking. And on Tuesday mornings, there's a market selling all sorts of knickknacks right at the promenade. Definitely something to check-out. Breakfast could be improved.

"Friendly staff, great location, breakfast on the terrace"
07/30/12 Leanne_trvls London, United Kingdom
Very friendly check-in and reception. Helpful and professional staff. Ascona is a very nice place to stay and it’s a nice stroll to Locarno. The hotel is located on the car-free ‘boulevard’ on the lake. Breakfast was served until 11am, which is very reasonable! The buffet breakfast was good but on both occasions there were no eggs nor meat. Shame the buffet is not replenished frequently. Breakfast can be enjoyed on the terrace with lake views or in the restaurant. Check-out time is noon; great! Overall we were very impressed with the hotel and its location.

"No warm water, they knew but did not tell..."
03/25/10 travel1982 London
Last Night I was at the Tamaro Hotel, 110 franc one person one night. the room was small but ok, not my style but me grand mother would like it. I needed Internet (Wifi) they told me only in the reception but it didn´t work, breakfast was included, I arrived at 09-15 at the breakfast, coffee milk bread ham cheese butter orange jus and Jam. all ok but nothing special. the room was warm but the shower freezing COLD. I told them this and the answer was: yes we know we have some problems with the water... no discount nothing. I did not see A/C in the room so as it gets very hot here in the summer I do not know what you should expect but then at least you can take a very cold shower...

"The best things happen by accident"
12/22/09 TheRamblers3 Boston
My wife and young daughter were booked at Hotel Au Lac, but after a long hot train ride from Montreux we were told they were full when we arrived. It was so hot, over 90F and I asked if we could get a room next door at Hotel Tamaro at the same price. We ended up with a gorgeous 3-bed interior room. The 2nd story room had a private terrace with flowers, plenty of space and air conditioned. Looked out over the stone roofs. The staff at Hotel Tamaro couldn't do enough for us. Breakfast was included too. Want an extra treat? Eat next door in an alley at Grotto Baldoria, a family-run affair. You sit with strangers, there's no menu, the Grandpa cooks and family serves, rich beef and polenta, cheeses and meats and wine, even dessert for around 50CHF for 3 people! Be prepared... no one speaks English. But everyone is friendly. Enjoy Ascona this way and at Hotel Tamaro and you'll never want to leave.

"charming place at the boardwalk of Ascona"
10/19/09 swissboy69 Rapperswil, Switzerland
Nice house in the old part of Ascona just at the lake. Pittoresque restaurant at the covered courtyeart, street café with great icecream. Comfortable rooms partly with spectacular view over the lake towards Italy.

"Very pleasant hotel"
06/16/08 bevldavies Chichester
We booked three nights at the Hotel Tamaro as we were photographing a wedding in Ascona. It is located on the main waterfront street among a number of other hotels and plenty of bars and restaurants. I was concerned it would be noisy but it wasn't during our stay. It has a friendly independent feel and the staff are very helpful although speak limited English. Our room was very large with a decent bathroom and it was spotlessly clean. The bathroom was a little dated but again spotless. Downsides of the room were that there was no air conditioning which could be a problem in very hot weather and there were certain things that we needed that were not available i.e. hairdryer and iron (although the hotel will iron for you at a reasonable cost) Breakfast which was included was very nice and consisted of various breads, pastries, cereal, yoghurt etc and can be eaten outside. Overall it is a simple, friendly hotel offering good value compared to many of the other hotels in the area.

everything was boooked, we were traveling by car through Switzerland. Wanted to stay in Ascona at the Eden Roc but sold out! besides being too expensive (didnt even quote it) Kids loved this hotel Tamaro we took 2 rooms. first night we rented a lakeview room. Breath taking but not if you want to sleep. was noisy. kids had the cheaper room in back with a nice veranda. gorgeous paid 240chf a night (expensive but includes breakfast). the next night we switched rooms for a quieter night and the gave us a discount down to 220chf. Beautiful Hotel well kept. Would stay here again. and great location to enjoy ascona / locarno / lugano. We rented a boat 300chf 1/2 day (all day for us) was awesome.
