The Hotel-Garni MURALTO is the result of the complete restoration of the former Hotel Carmine, located in Via Sempione 10 in Locarno-Muralto.

The building, constructed in the 1960s, is situated in a very sunny, easily accessible central position. In 2007 it was acquired by the Gian-Luigi and Laura Varini family who decided to completely renovate it in order to obtain a modern and comfortable structure that satisfies current needs.

The renovations were completed in the record time of approximately six months, making it possible to reopen the hotel just before the beginning of the 2008 tourist season. The building meets the latest fire and safety police regulations and has been fitted with an innovative and environmentally friendly solar heating and hot-water system with an excellent energy efficiency rating.
