10/10 Exceptional

Excellent central Locarno
Best location in Locarno. Great hotel very close to the train station walk out the door into boutique shopping. 100m to the lake front with boats and cafes on the left. 100m along shops to the Grand Piazza on your right. Could not have asked for a more friendly helpful staff. Breakfast was high quality and cleanliness top rate. We are so happy we chose to stay here and would choose this hotel again.

Great location for the train station. Good breakfast. The street/alley on our side of the hotel was very noisy throughout the night. The hotel needs to get the police to monitor this area between midnight and 6:00 am

Middle of everything!
Our stay in Locarno Hotel Du Lac was too short. We were given Ticino tickets to travel by bus for free to the Ticino area. The breakfast muesli was excellent and the breakfast room terrace just lovely. Hotel is easy walking distance to train station. Also close to the lake and the central piazza. Staff very friendly multi-lingual and helpful. Excellent place to stay!

10/10 Exceptional

We were delighted to stay in such a comfortable and quiet hotel right in the center of Locarno, just a few minutes walking distance from the train station and from the lakeshore. The staff was quite friendly and helpful, the property is beautifully maintained, and the breakfast sumptuous. Our streetside room was comfortable, with plenty of room for our clothes and luggage; nice bath space, too. We were there during a festival, which was audible, but not too troublesome -- we put down the blinds and slept quite well. And the Ticino Ticket was a great bonus! All in all, a perfect stay and no hesitation in recommending it.

Room with a view
Great value hotel, no restarting but a super breakfast, brilliant staff, room with a view and balcony with more than enough restaurants within a 10 minute walk. We will return and more than likely stay at Hotel Du Lac

6/10 Good

The location of the hotel was very good. Also the rooms were spacious. It is a rather old building, renovated. Breakfast was average due to lack of variety, only few options available. The air conditioning was problematic and the temperatures at the period of our travel.
