Recent guest reviews

Stayed here 1 night as we passed through. Checkin agent was friendly and helpful, got us checked in fast. Told us about an event going on the next day and we shouldn't park on the street and gave us directions to the back parking lot. Room was big and clean, big balcony overlooking the lake and down town area, there was also a coffee maker in the room for a coffee for the morning. A bit more than we'd normally spend for a place, but it was nice to feel a bit pampered once on the trip.

We have stayed in a few different hotels in the area. This one has the best breakfast room.... mainly due to the ladies there were extremely wonderful. La Palma location is good because it allows you to sit on the balcony end of the day and enjoy the sunset into the mountains. Try to book a room highest floor for the best view. The hotel is also close to great restaurants and from centre of the city.

The badroom was several years ago very good! The bed were good, it was clean. Everything felt deserted. It was good to stay at night, the rest of the day we were away, and that is the best here! You could visit the city by feet.

There are two Ramadas right on the Lake...we have stayed in the La Palma twice in two years! Seems like Locarno is not always a stop for American travelers according to locals. This Lake area is a great walking town...has a funicular which takes you to a restaurant with amazing views!! Great stop just before going to Italy with train station a five minute walk from Hotel. We stay here because the staff is responsive to emails, very accomodating with requests, rooms are large and bathrooms big by European comparisons! We traveled here straight from the USA and via very scenic train although strongly recommend spending time in other parts of Switzerland via Zurich first! Scenic train from Zurich being eliminated as main route when Tunnel through mountains opens soon! The staff had the exact room we requested ready even though we arrived before check in time! Quiet room with large balcony overlooking the Lake! Balcony is a must-back of hotel has limited view and few balconies! The hotel is clean and amenities very nice. Breakfast is included and is one of best we have found in Europe for a reasonably priced Hotel!!! Sitting on balcony enjoying view is very relaxing and romantic! Boat rides on Lake a short walk away! Tip-there is a shortcut to hotel right from Station to back entrance of hotel-great if you have luggage-ask hotel for directions. Thanks to staff at Ramada La Palma for their terrific service!!

Excellent staff battling against the odds with a hotel that needs investment and refurbishment. The first floor room balconies are a good size of outdoor space but they have a forward safety wall less than 700mm which in modern European countries would not be a legal minimum height, which leads to a 2 metre roof deck with no edge protection and a fall to the street below. Rooms need refurbished badley.

We stayed at this hotel in summer where it can be very hot in Locarno. The biggest issue I had with this hotel is that it has no pool. There is another Ramada in Locarno on the waterfront so if having a pool is important then I would recommend that you stay at the other Ramada! Everything else in the hotel is satisfactory- there is air-conditioning in the room and the size of the room is fine with an updated bathroom. Breakfast was included in our deal and we had a view of the lake which I would strongly recommend.

We had a room on the backside, not facing the lake, but with everything to do outside, we didn't mind. The location is perfect to get to everything. The front desk staff was very welcoming and more than happy to answer any questions and provide any help we needed. We struggled with the language, but they were more than happy to speak English. Free bikes were provided and we biked the lakefront.

Best view in the whole lago Maggiore, very professional staff and great Breakfast Buffet. In the reception you will find all the Information regarding the City of Locarno and around it. Reception staff is very professional and friendly.

Arrived in the evening after a long drive from Blitzingen over the Simplon Pass. Nadia at check in was very efficient and provided a lot of information and maps of where we wanted to go over the next 2 days. We had a room on the 4th floor with a balcony facing the lake where we had many fantastic moments watching dawn break over sleepy Locarno (Muralto) and the first boats leave the harbor. Room was spacious with king sized double bed, more than adequate storage and a laptop sized safe. Locarno was quite warn (31 deg C) in July so the Air -conditioning was a big relief. Bathroom and WC are separated, but wasn't an issue for us. Breakfast spread more than adequate, we loved it. The hotel provided us free parking at the back. Overall a great stay, friendly and efficient service and good value for money.

Very conveniently located with beautiful views, very nice and helpful service, large and a good quality buffet, the rooms clean and comfortable though standard impersonal hotel room. Only avoid half-board offer with dinner at the other Locarno Ramada - that one is not up to the level of a four star hotel, which besides that comment are perfectly merited.
