    Great location budget feel.

    It is a great location. Rooms a little rundown. Not comfortable beds or pillows. They charged for an espresso pod that was in the room. That is cheap. It fell very budget.

    Beautiful location but noisy

    Warm welcome, clean room and a great breakfast. However, at 5.58am they started vacuuming, bringing out the sunshade and taking deliveries. I don’t mind 7am but not before!

    wonderful short stat

    great location, with a small balcony and excellent food. We would have prefered a room with only one bed and on a higher floor, but this was a detail.

    Beautiful view and a nice hotel!

    Our family had a nice one night stay at the hotel. It is perfectly centrally located. The room has been updated recently and has a nice design. Our view of the bay was wonderful. The front desk was very nice and professional and the breakfast in the morning was great. Overall it was a very nice stay and parking up the street was easy to find, but contact the hotel prior to your stay to get directions.

    Our stay at the Albergo Carcani hotel in Ascona

    We spent just one night at the hotel and we were not disappointed. We had a lake facing room with a small balcony, the views are amazing. Location is perfect, right on the promenade with easy access to restaurants, boutique stores, the local Coop and to water activities. If however you are looking for a 'noise free' environment then consider an alternative location. There is constant activity on the promenade, including 'pop-up' informal stores setup for evening trade, etc. Parking for hotel guests is a short walk from the hotel through the steep cobbled narrow streets. Best is to drive up to the hotel entrance on the promenade, offload bags and then drive to the parking area. Overall our experience was excellent, we'd book at Albergo Carcani again, without question.
