    Avoid it if you don't need to be at the Piazza Gra

    Difficult to find, no address, English so lala. Room with no AC, 32deg C for over 400 CHF. Breakfast minimum - little value for steep price. Not recommended

    Great location but overpriced for what is offered

    I chose Hotel America because of its address (Piazza Grande, no # given). That is a bit of a misnomer: the only part of the establishment fronting the Piazza is the narrow end of its restaurant, the rest being tucked in the narrow, winding, cobblestone streets of the old city. Fair enough. For what it charges, though, and for a supposed three-star hotel, it's hard to see the correlation. The rooms are quite exiguous, the shower stall so small it's hard to slither into, the amenities not plentiful, the TV screen quite small with half of the channels non-functional (but at least CNN & BBC1 were available). No on-demand movies, though. Not quite what was hoped for. No AC at all; this was not a problem in mid-October, though the room was a bit on the chilly side. The location is certainly good, but there is no parking. Clients can get a daily rate of Sfr. 19.- (a bargain in Switzerland) at the Casino/Centro Parking garage, a 5-min. walk away. All-in-all, a bit overpriced & overrated for what is offered, but not a bad solution.

    Central location

    Super central to piazza grande. Stayed here during the moon&stars festival. Room was ok for a night. Unfortunately no a/c only fan - got quite hot during the night. 10 mins walk from main train station

    A good hotel room

    Albergio Americano provided a good hotel room, which was not large, but my choice was the cheapest room they had. The room and bathroom seemed pretty clean, but the floor was a bit sticky. Staff was very friendly, welcoming, and the lady at the desk could speak English, French, German and Italian. The included breakfast was healthy, with a selection of breads and croissants, cold meats, some soft cheeses, fruits, orange juice and coffee. Overall, it was a good deal.

    Location, Location, Location

    We did not have a car, so the location of the hotel was perfect. A few minutes from a bus stop, as well as the train station (which has a great tourist office by the way) and a little bit futher the port. The staff was very kind and helpfull. I would recommend to take the breakfast with your package, worth it. We had a great time. I just want to mention that the hotel is not directly on Piazza Grande, but slitly in the back between to larg building. I guess it is an old bulding remodeled. I don't think you can see the Piazza from the hotel but you are there to visit not sit in your room.

    Great Deal

    The staff was great and this was an excellent location right on the main piazza but set back a bit so the rooms were quiet. The staff was very friendly and everyone went out of their way. The rooms are simple but clean and attractive. TV with cable and perfectly fine bathroom. A great breakfast was included. I would stay here again and again.

    Newly renovated and great location

    The hotel is located just off the Piazza Grande which is fantastic. All the rooms have been newly renovated and are nicely decorated in clean white, with nice and modern bathroom amenities. However, the room I stayed in (n°36) was rather on the small side.The bed is very large and comfortable though. All the windows are soundproof. My reservation included breakfast but I did not try it and the hotel also offers a pizzeria on the ground floor which seemed quite busy in the evening but I didn't try out either. The hotel staff is very helpful and friendly. I'd definitely recommend this hotel.

    Great location, good restaurant

    - Great location - Good restaurant - Very friendly staff - Nice and clean room, just as advertised - Unique interior design (might be a little scary for little children ;-)) - Accessibility with a pram was possible but not excellent (narrow elevator & some steps)
