Reviewed 8 October 2012

I must say, this is by fair one of the best hotels in town Although it is situated right in the heart of the city, the rooms are very quite, clean and comfortable. The warm welcome we received at check-in was beyond expectation. The hotel has their own private parking at Chf 33.00 per day, which is very comfortable ( A very ultra modern parking) The hotels provides a wide range of breakfast to get you started with the day! It is a little bit pricey but afterall, hotels in Switzerland are all expensive and for the service Dante provides makes it worthwhile! HIghly recommended!

it is the third time we went to the hotel Lugano Dante and we will come back. it is perfectly located, high quality, but the most important is the personal touch of the service. Perfectly located, though a little tricky to find the way by car to its parking facility. You have to feed your GPS with via Motta and drive to the very end, there, in a pedestrian passage is the entrance to the hotel. If you place its actual address, you will not find it by car.

Our son is a student in Lugano, and we have had hit or miss experiences at hotels there for years. Some are wonderful, but crazy expensive; others not so great, but reasonably priced. Dante is now the one we will return to. Price fair. Location great. Nice and clean. Breakfast very good. Candy at reception, a nice touch. Service excellent. Parking garage, very cool!

My wife and I spent two wonderful nights at this hotel in the center of Lugano. The location was fantastic, within walking distance to several good restaurants, shopping, and city center. We took the bus to the bottom of Mont Bre and the funiculare to to summit for lunch with a wonderful view of the lake and the city below. Breakfast was a delight each morning, and the service at the hotel desk was most helpful. Definitely a good experience.

We stayed at the Dante on the 28th September which was the first stop of our four day tour. We found this hotel to be a total delight from the very friendly and helpful staff to all the other amenities that it offers. The location is perfect and as soon as you arrive the staff offer all the assistance possible. Extremely comfortable room; the pillow menu is something that we have never encounted previously from our many trips all over the world and my request for a different pillow was answered within two minutes - quite amazing. The free mini bar of soft drinks is also something that we have never experienced before, together with the invitation to a glass of wine and nibbles in the hotel bar. The reception area also offered twentyfour hour availability to free fresh coffee and tea together with a selection of continental style pastries. The buffet style breakfast was extremely good and definitely the best that we encountered within Switzerland.
Surely is the first place for hotels in Lugano well justified, in fact we would go a step further and say that in our opinion this must be one of the best hotels in the world.

We stayed at the Dante the first week of September. It is located next to the Funicular which takes you from the train station to the town. Very convenient. It is a beautiful hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. Our room was clean and nicely decorated. The bathroom was alittle small and the hair dryer was a bit dated. However the breakfast which was included was fantastic!!!. So much to select from and it was all delicious. The hotel is located in the middle of this small town which was convenient for the many activities and restaurants available. The shops are all near the hotel as well as the lake and park. It is a short walk to San Salvatore where you can take a funicular to the top of this mountain for the most fabulous views of Lugano. This is a town not too miss. We loved the Dante and Lugano.

Room Tip: Request a room on the upper floors to avoid noise.

stayed with my family in this hotel on September 21st this year, and it was just perfect, the location and again the location, then the cosy rooms (we had two rooms on the third floor facing the Funicular), the rooms had eveything you could wish for, free mini bar, comfi beds, pillows menu to choose level of comfort and so much more even male and female swiss ducks in the bathroom that say "take me with you", my daughters loved it. Breakfast, WOW, nothing to say, had everything you could wish for on a breakfast, overall it justifies the price we paid and the first place it got on the Trip Advisor's Lugano hotels list.

Room Tip: I think all rooms are good if they face the pedestrian area and the Funicular or facing the Lugano l...
