Hotel unione is in desperate need of an update or a price reduction. I expect more for over 200chf per a night. The room was very basic, cheaply decorated and outdated--a small characterless space. No coffee or tea...no shampoo- a hair dryer from the 80s. Breakfast was average. Overall the experience was a poor value for money.

While the double room was noisy - facing the street - and a bit dated, it was meticulously clean. Location right in the centre of Bellinzona is a plus as is the restaurant. If you care for pizza, try the place next door. Breakfast was O.K. but not overwhelming.

I stayed here for a night en route from London to Bergamo. The hotel is very well located for the centre of the town near the piazza del sole . Although on the main road it is reasonably quiet as it is set back from the street. It is vehicle-accessible with public car parks nearby .Although I arrived late without...

I booked this place sight unseen for the start of the 4-day Easter Weekend and I must say I was slightly disappointed. It's on the main road and while the staff is very kind, I didn't find the breakfast even inspiring. I initially was given a tiny single room which they quickly managed to change after I began complaining, I...

Spacious rooms, friendly staff at the reception who were helpful with bus routes and small tips. The gentleman at the bar area serving me expressos was very friendly and so was the lady at breakfast. This is an easygoing 3 star hotel with a nice outdoor terrace, fountain area, clean spacious rooms and a spacious bathroom. Ask for castel grande...

We had intended to spend two nights at the Hotel Unione in Bellinzona. However, after spending 15 minutes searching for the entrance and parking during our arrival, we finally parked at a public lot immediately adjacent to the hotel. Upon registering, we discovered that the hotel has no parking of its own and one must park in the public lot....

We very much enjoyed our stay at Hotel Unione. Our room was small (typical for Europe) but immaculate and we had a balcony overlooking Castlegrande. The staff is very friendly. A wonderful buffet breakfast with delicious meats, cheeses and pastries is included in the room price. The Unione is is centrally located; the Castle, shopping, great restaurants and a fabulous...

Based off previous reviews I did come here with low expectations but was very pleasently surprised. The hotel is well situated right near Castlegrande which we could see from our room. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We even managed to check in at 11am which is quite amazing from my experiences Switzerland to that point certainly in the...

At first, things went OK. The superior room was newly renovated but rather smallish. It was only at noon that things started getting out of hand: some crazy manager had given a film crew the permission to film on level 4 (where all the new rooms are). This involved hauling huge amounts of materials (tripods and the like) to the...

I stayed at Hotel Unione when I decided to do a quick trip to Bellinzona by myself. The best thing about the hotel for me was how safe that I felt while I was there. Since I was a woman traveling alone in Europe, I wanted to feel as safe as possible. The next best thing was the location. The...

“Rooms facing the street are pretty noisy. If you are a light sleeper, you better specifically ask for a quiet room.”
