Beautiful Terrasse room Staff is very nice and helpful. We had a nice stay. Warm room, also in winter. We did not try the restaurant it was closed in January. Breakfast was ok, not too many healthy options. Maybe some more veggie options would be good.

First of all is the receptionist really sweet. She helped us to get to know the area and was very friendly. The view from the room is just amazing as you would expect from a see view room in Ascona. The room is clean, big and the beds are good. Would recommend everybody to come to this place. Please note that when you take the family room you will not have a balcony.

The room was very clean and the view waa amazing. Very nice staff also. The only thing we did not like was the breakfast because there were not many options, at least some egg dishes would have been nice and some fresh fruit and vegetables. But all in all very good.

We spent three nights at New Elvezia during our summer holidays. The room was nice and it was a very good value for money. We chose the side lake view room in the second floor. Everything was clean. The location is perfect, at the front of the Maggiore lake. We neither ate at the restaurant nor took the breakfast there. We were quite surprised to have a Mexican restaurant in Ascona ;-)

I stayed at the New Elvezia for a couple of days to see how Ascona changed since my childhood. The welcoming was warm and friendly so I instantly felt good. The staff manages to speak several languages so you wont need any translator. Be aware that if you get top floor rooms the windows won't be that big which can make summer quite hot and steamy. I didnt care much about the AC because AC gives you either a sore throat or a nasty cold afterwards. Although I know that many international tourists see AC as a standard. My room was rather small so I would not recommend a single room when you want to stay in the room for a long time. The bathroom was quite new which I really enjoyed. The pressure of the shower should have been a bit more so it wouldnt be such a hassle to shower off the sunblocker. Towelservice same as everywhere they replace them if and when you want it. I liked the free soap for hand or shower althought I would have been happy with some of those small one you can collect over time. It all made a clear and good look so no dust or mold. In the sleeping room you'll find a ventilator which offers different speeds and also a timeswitch which is pretty handy when you want to turn on sleep for 1 hour so you dont have to get up. There was a TV but I can't say anything about it since I didnt use it. A chair and a mirror together with 4 hangers made the wardrobe. The bed was... well, hard. As hard as youll find yourself doing exercises in the morning to shift those spinplates correct again. If you sleep on the side though. I asked for a second cushion which the signora delivered me during the day. So extras are done if you ask nicely. My room offered a small window, which I definitely used during the night to get fresh air im my room. And boy did I enjoyd that tiny window. And fear not about sleeping in, I liked the near curch which waked me every morning at 9 o'clock for breakfast. For breakfast they offer cereals, espressi or variations like americano or macchiatto and such. Try a double espresso, its delish. Fruits are on display as well as different kind of breads and croissant. Jelly, butter and other dairy products are also there as youll also find water and various juices. The hotel is connected or maybe even operated by Papa Joes so youll hear american music from morning till evening, if you have dinner there of course. The food a la carte is like in every Papa Joe the same and its good. The fries I loved the most. Yumm. Summary: My budget, date of booking and time of stay and my desire for a little bit of american way of life brought me here and I was happy. Would I return? Well its hard to say, alone maybe not. Maybe with someone else in a bigger room. Its a good place at the end of the piazza which lets you stroll up and down the piazza and accesses you quickly to almost all the joints around there. This makes it a cool place. Not to forget about the staff which was cool. I am astounished how they not have been going crazy yet listening to the very same playlist every day, lol. Cheers
