Recently admitted to the exclusive Swiss selection of "Inspiring Seminar Hotels", the Hotel Belvedere Locarno offers a wide range of eventsThe Hotel Belvedere Locarno is one of five chosen hotels in Ticino that have been rated as „Inspiring Seminar Hotels “ in 2016. This privilege is awarded to a mere 45 hotels in entire Switzerland. The Belvedere 2015 has in addition - for the first time - been rated as one of the Top Ten hotels in the category “Seminarhotel COMFORT” at the “FOCUSwahl”. Both distinctions are well known throughout Switzerland and are consulted regularly by potential seminar and event planning professionals for the selection of eventual event locations.
The Hotel Belvedere is an exception in the Swiss hotel industry in that continuous investments have been
implemented throughout the years. Therefore, the hotel offers its guests today not only the usual five airconditioned
halls, filled with day-light and fitted with modern technology but also pays attention to
upgrading the rooms even to the smallest detail: from top quality coffee to the newest and most comfortable
seats. That is the difference in quality that makes this establishment stand out.
The meeting rooms can be arranged individually due to the modular system. This permits the hall capacity to adapt itself to the size of the event and not vice versa. The Belvedere therefore creates individual solutions for events from a small circle to large meetings with up to 180 people. Banquet functions are the hotels forté with a capacity ranging from 20 to 400 guests while maintaining a highly professional quality up to the smallest detail. For this reason Flurin Cajacob was recently hired as Event Manager. He takes care of all concerns regarding seminars and events.
The Hotel is located directly above the sanctuary “Madonna del Sasso”. For those who wish to take it easy one can travel by the funicular railway (stop „Belvedere“) directly up to the hotel. On foot one easily reaches the historic city center and can enjoy the film festival city’s Mediterranean charm and climate. Both the funicular railway and the cableway are available so that the hiker can reach Monte Cardada – a special place with spectacular alpine views and numerous hiking trails. Other activities in the Lago Maggiore area include cycling and golf, which thanks to the mild climate is also possible in wintertime. The Lugano airport Agno is 40 km distant, a 45-minute car drive. The Milan Malpensa airport remains 110 km to the south. After the completion of the Alp-Transit in 2016 the hotel can be reached via the Gotthard base tunnel from Zurich, Lucerne and Zug by train in about two hours.
