About Vecchia Locarno

Dear guest

We are Cinzia and Nadia, in 2019 we conceived and created a new concept of hotels and hostels with the aim to make you feel at home in an informal but professional environment: @ Home Hotels & Hostels.
We speak 4 languages and personally take care of all the services dedicated to making your stay a pleasant one. We love our job and put our heart into it. We aim to convey a familiar and welcoming environment paying careful attention to details and being constantly available for your requests and information. Upon arrival, you will also receive our contact-info in order to reach us via WhatsApp or by phone in case of need, especially in the evening and nighttime when we are not always present on site.
@ Home Hostel Vecchia Locarno is located in the beating heart of Locarno, just 50 meters from Piazza Grande – an international, musical and culinary-event location. We are immersed in the fascinating old town, which is full of atmosphere, history and culture, boutiques and restaurants for every taste. Just a 10 minute walk from Muralto-Locarno train station and from the lake. The main attractions of the city are reachable on foot or by bus.


Reception does not exist @ Home Hostel Vecchia Locarno. You can check in from the comfort of your home -through a link that we will send you in advance- or on site upon arrival. We will be happy to welcome you and give you the keys to access the room and the main entry.


After 7 p.m no check-in is required. We can request all information needed already at time of reservation. Please inform us and we will forward your room number and the access instructions directly to your email or mobile number on the day of arrival.


Don’t miss it! All guests staying in hotels, youth hostels or campsites in the Canton receive the Ticino Ticket upon arrival. It is valid until the end of the day of departure.
The Ticino Ticket allows tourists to use all public transportation free of charge and offers advantages on the access to cable cars, navigation and main tourist attractions. Do not forget to let it print @ Kiosk upon arrival.


Every adventure comes to an end. We kindly ask you to leave your room before 11:00 a.m. or to book a late check-out. An official check-out is not required. You will receive the invoice on the same day via email. The city Tax will be balanced upon reservation rules.


A secure parking close to the Castle will give you the opportunity to choose us while arriving by car.


A special and rich continental breakfast awaits you @ Kitchen every day from 8:00 to 10:30 am. Prepared for all tastes with passion and attention to details, you can choose between cold dishes, bread and brioches, jams, fresh fruit and a wide selection of hot drinks. Stove and live preparation will be the highlight.


From the 1st of June, In your @ Home Hostel Vecchia Locarno, you will have a secured place to store your bike

We arrived yesterday after driving 5 hours from the north of Switzerland. We got a warm welcome from the host. He kindly told us where the cheapest carpark was and how to get back to the hotel. 3 Swiss Francs for 2 hrs! !! Amazing. He showed us where we could get tea and coffee and free bottles of water and extra towels. There is a communal microwave and fridge as well as shared shower/loos. The room is basic but clean and comfortable. The view from the window is to the mountains and the church tower with real bells! Breakfast is a simple affair but adequate. If you want more than bread and cheese then you need to go elsewhere. It is only a short walk to all the tourist attractions and the main piazza (square) Hotel is perfectly situated for everything. We love it.
