Fodor's Review

Locarno. This hotel has been a longtime choice for art and cinema aficionados (it even inspired Bernard Weber's 1978 film Hotel Locarno), but everyone can appreciate its charm, intimate feel, and central location off Piazza del Popolo. Exquisite wallpaper and fabric prints are coordinated in the rooms, and some rooms are decorated with antiques—the grandest residence looks like an art director's take on a Medici bedroom. Everything is lovingly supervised

by the owners, a mother-daughter duo. The buffet breakfast is ample, there's bar service on the panoramic roof garden, and complimentary bicycles are available if you feel like braving the traffic.
