A Little Bit of History

Until the end of 1999 the building from XIX. century was used as the custom house of Locarno. In the year 2000 the building was completely renovated and converted into a Hotel Garni, from there the name Millennium. Hotel Garni means nothing else than Hotel with breakfast.

The hotel has a special style and is taken care of with lots of personal engagment. We do our best to get better and to improve every year.

From 2003 until 2007 the hotel was directed by Nicolas Gilliet, the Art Jazz Festival director of Ascona and the hotel was known as the Jazz Hotel Locarno. All rooms were dedicated to Jazz musicians until 2015.

2007 changed the director. The Hotel has been directed until now by Sonja Frey, Swiss from the central part of Switzerland.

2018 saw a full renovation and a new management: the hotel’s director is now André Himmelsbach.
