Hotel Albergo Carcani Ascona

The hotel restaurant Albergo Carcani is located close by the Piazza in Ascona. Built in the 1960s, the hotel was reopened in 2012 after extensive renovations.

He also designed a lot of new areas in the hotel. „Dolce far niente” there, where it is beautiful – by the Piazza in Ascona in the Albergo Carcani!
