Giardino Seerose

Switzerland has adopted sensible protective measures to contain the corona pandemic (Covid-19). These measures serve to protect both guests and employees. Here you will find a current list of the implementation at the Giardino Ascona for hotel, restaurant and spa. We update this list on an ongoing basis.

Clean & Safe


Safety measures

At the hotel

The Giardino Ascona has its own operating concept for the prevention of Covid-19 infections. This ensures that the guidelines of Hotelleriesuisse, the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH), SECO and Coiffeursuisse are implemented. Implementation is constantly monitored by a separate Corona officer. We also maintain constant contact with our medical officer and the cantonal health authorities.

  • All contact points and storage areas as well as door handles, light switches etc. are regularly disinfected
  • All employees are tested on a regular basis in the official test centres of the canton of Ticino.
  • Disinfectant dispensers for guest use are located in all public areas
  • Where necessary, floor markings are provided to ensure the recommended minimum distance is maintained
  • Where necessary, we have transparent partitions to protect both guests and employees
  • Our employees are trained in protective behaviour, in the use of protective material and in special cleaning
  • Our employees also observe the rules of distance between themselves whenever possible and regularly disinfect their hands
  • The public areas are regularly ventilated
  • Our cleaning agent contains disinfectant solution
Mandatory wearing of masks
  • Our employees wear masks in all areas of the hotel.

FAQ for cancellations due to Corona (Covid-19)
A cancellation free of charge is possible in case of:

  • Quarantine obligation after the time of the booking confirmation for guests from other cantons/foreign countries on entry into the canton of Ticino or Switzerland
  • The cancellation is possible in these cases latest 15 days prior to arrival. If the above measures are published after this period, we grant a period of 2 days from the date of notification, in this case we will also contact you proactively.
In these cases the general cancellation policies of the hotel do apply (see above):
  • Confirmed corona infection by the guest / one of the travel participants (we recommend that you book a travel insurance covering these events)
  • Ordered quarantine by the cantonal doctor/tracing centre/local authorities (we recommend that you book a travel insurance covering these events)
  • Quarantine obligation upon return from the canton of Ticino or upon return from Switzerland, which already existed at the time of booking or will be implemented afterwards.
In case of a lockdown in the canton of Ticino or Switzerland

If the Federal Government or the Canton decides on a lockdown and the hotel cannot operate, it may withdraw from the contract free of charge. Any advance payments will be refunded. The Hotel has no further obligations.
