Very close to Grande Piazza.
The room was fine for the 3 of us (parents and one child). However, it was quite hot. There was an air conditioner in the small part of the room, but it did not cool the whole place and they turned it off when we were away. The fans in the room would have helped to spread the cool from the A/C if only their were enough power outlets to plug them in. Also, the A/C filled with water, put a puddle on the floor, and turned off. I managed to figure out how to service it and got it going again. We were there at the time of the Film Festival, which was great, albeit quite loud at night, when the films were on in the Grande Piazza. Can't complain about that, as we knew what we were into when we booked. Just fair warning.

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.

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.

10/10 Exceptional

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 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)
