“The best breakfast buffet we've ever had!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2012

From the moment we booked the room until we left the hotel we were treated like royalty! Super friendly staff and the best breakfast we've ever experienced (And we've traveled around the world and stayed at many 5 star hotels).
Many little treats made our stay unforgettable. We'll stay there every time we go to Lugano!

We stayed here two nights in early May 2012. I don't have enough superlatives. After we checked in I asked where a restaurant was, and Roberta, the desk agent, called the restaurant to tell them we were coming, to make sure they had a table for us. "Two guests from Hotel Dante are on their way" This is just one example of the superb individual service. Antonio was very helpful friendly and delightful also. The staff really are fantastic. In the room was a "Pillow Menu"!! You could order (free) any of various pillows. The sheets must be high thread-count because we slept so well we almost missed the deservedly famous breakfast!! Our stay in this hotel was one of the high-points of our trip.

Room Tip: We did not ask for a specific room and were very happy with ours.

Classy and Generous Hotel

We very much enjoyed two nights in this beautifully and elegantly decorated hotel. The generosity to guests is uncommon, but very gratifying, from free soft drinks in the room, to free coffee, tea and food all day in the lounge. The breakfast was superb. The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff supported this approach to guests.

Lugano is a lovely city and the Dante is well located in the older centre of town. We were apprehensive about parking, but the arrangements worked perfectly. The computer controlled automatic underground parking of cars is amazing.

Our test of any hotel is whether we would recommend it to our friends. We would strongly recommend the Dante and Lugano.

This is our second stay at Lugano Dante and because of the quality and service of our first visit we did not even consider other hotels. We made a reservation Friday for the weekend and as always we were greeted with professionlism and courtesy from parking the car in the garage to our room 103 which had a nice view of the piazza.
Incredible breakfast as always and staff really are genuine and provide an excellent service. You will see us again soon!

This is the only hotel that send email before hand for us to choose additional facilities that we need for our stay, including kid's shower head, kid's toilet, pillows, blanket etc. Sweet messages and small gift made us feel like home. Our son like the lobby kid's corner very much, enjoy his lego game and free candies.
The staff of reception and restaurant are very helpful and polite. They help me to solve the wifi problem even at midnight. However the printers in the lobby were not working properly, otherwise the stay would be perfect.
