Best hotels in Locarno

Hotel Locarno

Hotel Locarno. 

Locarno is a beautiful village in Switzerland, Ticino. Hotels in Locarno are not luxurious. Some hotels in Locarno and Ascona are even "simple".

Here's what you should know before booking a hotel in Locarno.

My journey starts in Locarno, Piazza Grande. Monday, 8.30 A.M.

It's sunny, warm enough to wear a hoodie. And I land with the train in Locarno train station.

My plan for the day is clear: I will have my typical Italian espresso in one of the cosy bars @PiazzaGrande .

Next I will hike up to Madonna del Sasso, light a candle and ask for blessings.

With some luck I can reach the cable train of the community of Locarno to the mountain. This will cost about CHF 40 in the local currency.

Switzerland is expensive. Also in Locarno.

But the people are nice, some exceptions are obvious.

You find the typical stores and supermarkets like Migros, Aldi, Coop, Denner, etc.
