Excellent hotel and service! Tasty breakfast and pizza for the room delivery. Very friendly and kind reception staff were always helpful. We were travelling with a small dog and he certainly received a 5 star pet friendly service - treats, water, own bed, good bye cookie, and lots of love. Thank you Hotel Dante!

Perfectly located, 10 m from the funicular exit, in the middle of town. Wonderful lobby with free coffee and pastries, nice functional rooms, generous breakfast and well functioning internet. Decor is sort of gloomy, but who cares, when you are in a very comfortable womb.

Simply excellent, under all aspects. My First Choice in Lugano. Located at the heart of the city, at two minutes from the train station by funicular. Nice and quiet rooms, very friendly staff and a great breakfast buffet complete the experience.

I was in lugano for the day and one night and didn't want to spend a lot on a room while at the same time being located in the center. This place was perfect. It is across the stop of the funicular which takes you straight to the train station. You are in the old town and can walk to...

I was pleasantly surprised, lovely hotel, great location. The staff are friendly and polite, rooms and neat & clean. The bathroom suits were a bit larger than some of those you normally find in Europe, so that was nice. I only stayed one night so was not able to sample the restaurant for dinner. Breakfast was ok.
