8/10 Very good

Struttura nuovissima e molto pulita. Nel centro di Ascona dalla quale è facilmente raggiungibile Locarno con i mezzi di trasporto (perfette le informazioni al desk in proposito). Buona la colazione, compresa di frutta di stagione già preparata (particolare che per me è un plus). Manca solamente un piccolo frigobar in stanza (non mi aspettavo tanto caldo in Svizzera). Dotato di ristorante nel quale poter cenare o pranzare comodamente e piacevolmente.
Chiara, 3-night romance trip
