Original works by French and Swiss artists from the first half of the 20th century adorn the rooms of the hotel, including oil and tempera paintings by Jean Talbot, Antonio Guansé, Edmond Céria...
The Belvedere was the ancient home of a noble family, built in the 15th century. It has greeted guests as a hotel since the end of the 19th century.
It encapsulates a long and storied hotel tradition which has been passed down through the Franzoni family from generation to generation for more than 100 years.
The hotel is located in a traffic-free zone right alongside the old town and is a mere seven-minute walk from the Piazza Grande and the lakeside. Alternatively, visitors can take the Locarno-Madonna del Sasso funicular and alight at the "Belvedere" stop which is named after the hotel.
Its location makes it ideal for anyone looking to enjoy the historic centre of the city, as well as having transport links via the funicular and the cable-car to the Mount Cardada, which is the starting point for various picturesque walking trails and other outdoor activities.
