Cute internal courtyard, great breakfast, lovely staff
We loved the friendly staff at breakfast, especially Paola. The breakfast buffet was excellent and the cappuccinos perfectly prepared. I appreciated the quick response by Esther when calling to contact the hotel at check-in, we arrived after 5pm. The system they have with the coded boxes at the entrance is very efficient and safe. The parking is about a 5 minute walk from the hotel by the COOP grocery store. The location was excellent, just a few steps from the piazza and a cute gelato café. The room was small but very clean and functional. A safe and fan were provided inside the armoire. We had two large suitcases but quickly emptied them in the armoire so they didn't take away space. We stayed for 5 nights but didn't experience any noise coming from the courtyard.
The creaky floor boards in our budget room were annoying, and of course the missing air-conditioning, which is hard to find in most hotels in Ascona. Luckily the weather wasn't as hot as it was in August and the fan was quiet so we slept well. I think that room could benefit from a higher quality mattress, I could feel the springs when turning.
Location Breakfast buffet Friendly staff
Arrived on a Monday evening 5 pm in pouring rain to find doors closed! Took a while to get key for parking and disappointed to Find noone at reception! Charming place but steep stairs to get to our room and carry our luggage! Tv and wifi not working!
The location was right in the center of Ascona which was amazing!
The rooms are above a restaurant so it is noisy until 11pm. The breakfast was supposed to be untill 11 but at 10:15 almost everything was gone. We asked for more and we got it - so this was nice. The personal does not speak english/german well - but we managed to get what we wanted.
No parking provided so you need to use a public parking (24$/day) and it’s not close to the hotel. Keys in a locked box. We didn’t see anybody on arrival at 4pm. The hotel is part of a restaurant and just above it in a patio. Loud music until 11pm. Overpriced. Really expensive for the service and quality.
Situated in the heart of Ascona’s Old Town, Albergo Antica Posta is only steps away from the promenade at Lago Maggiore and 15 minutes from the beach. Free WiFi is available. This historic Ticino house, built in 1626, offers rooms with a flat-screen TV and a bathroom with hairdryer. Breakfast and dinner are served in the romantic courtyard. In winter, the open fireplace in the restaurant of the Antica Posta provides for a cosy ambiance.
