Cozy and elegant. Friendly and hospitable staff especially the brother and sister owners. The family room is perfect for four with 2 young children. The room for couple is clean and impeccable. The price is also very reasonable. Couldn't ask for more. Highly recommend this hotel.

We had a family room for the us and our two children, which was located in another building adjacent to the hotel. For families with small children, it was just right - had a little grassy garden area in front for them to run around, plus a small kitchenette for those times when going to a restaurant yet another evening...

We chose this hotel for a pre-wedding getaway, to get away from it all and relax in a stunning setting. This hotel could not have been more perfect! We arrived at the hotel and were offered a complimentary glass of prosecco, served in the cosiest of bars surrounded by candles and vintage furniture. We were lucky enough to have a...

I travel a lot and have stayed at many luxurious places but they pale in comparison to the service and atmosphere at the Art Riposo, Ascona. The view from the roof is breathtaking and when the weather is nice the restaurant sets up an elegant display for guests to dine intimately and overlook Lake Maggorie. It's located a mere block...

The Art Hotel is set in a beautiful location near the lake and in a pedestrian zone, therefore it is extremely quiet. The lake can be viewed from the terrace where you will access to the pool which is small but set in a lush garden. The welcoming by the staff is very friendly and the room was OK though...

The rooms are spacious and well appointed apart from a lack of air-conditioning, this probably presents a problem in summer as the prevailing conditions around a lake surrounded by mountains are humid. But apart from that the rooftop pool is pleasant and the views impressive. It felt expensive for what it was but that is normal in Switzerland. Good breakfast.

Thank you very much for your reply. We will review your complaint thoroughly. This summer has been rather Hot and humid all over europe, but usually our climate doesn`t require Air Conditioning. Unfortunately being a Historic house we wont be able to retrofit Air Conditioning in every room, but we will consider mounting ventilators. We hope to see you again...
