The Hotel Unione is a three star family run hotel, located in the capital of the Canton of Ticino and is ideal for both business and tourism.

Its prime location, at the foot of the medieval castles, offers easy access to the main points of interest in the city.

The team at Unione will be happy to accommodate you in a welcoming family atmosphere and will provide you with a professional and quality service.


The Hotel Unione is situated at the foot of Castelgrande, a short walk from the pedestrian area and the historic centre, where you can experience a rich mixture of history, shopping and city life.

For those arriving by car, we don't have a private parking; there are several places where you can park. A public pay parking next to the hotel is free from 5:30 pm to 8:30 am and on holidays; alternatively, you can leave your car in the multi-storey pay car park (Piazza del Sole), which is a few metres from our hotel.

On 1 June 1949, Celeste Berini and Cécile Berset Berini opened Restaurante Unione.
When the restaurant expanded in 1960, the dream of a competitive hotel finally became reality. The hotel is situated within walking distance of the three Bellinzona castles, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site.

Once his son, Marco, the current owner, left school, he decided to follow in the footsteps of his parents and so began an apprenticeship as a cook. Due to his experience gained in Switzerland and abroad, Marco finally entered the family business.

In the late '80s, the hotel was completely renovated. In the following years, numerous projects were started and completed. Amongst these was a solar heating system for the production of hot water and the addition of eight Superior rooms on the fourth floor.
