Reviewed 23 November 2013

We have stayed many times at this hotel, and always found it very friendly and comfortable.
We do not have a car whilst in Switzerland and travel by train. there is a funicular from Lugano station which takes us right to the hotel door. Situated in the nheart of the Lugano shopping and commercial centre, it could not be more conveniently located.Excellent breakast buffet is served in the dining room. No restaurant for other meals, but very nice bar where complimentary ssnack buffet is available. Many restaurants nearby. All in all I have no hesitation it recommending this hotel,

The location is probably the best possible if you want to stay in the center and you arrive by train. If you come by car, they offer you a place in the garage. The staff is extreemly helpful and the whole service is excellent. They care of many details so that you feel pampered. The rooms are rather outdated but comfortable. The style is rather conventional. Breakfast is good and abundant. For a stay of a few days it's a very good choice.

Room Tip: We had an old junior suite, but they have a newer part of the building of which I assume to have a m...

Location location location..... Hotel Dante is in the heart of the square surrounded by cafes restaurants and all the shopping you can do.....H & M, Manor and minutes away from "Lago di Lugano" where you can take a boat cruise practically on the hour. Hotel Dante is great for business trips or short stays....the complimentary breakfast buffet runs all morning!!!

I stayed in the hotel for a Saturday for a birthday celebration with girlfriends. This hotel has such a warm atmosphere and an attention to detail so you feel so welcomed and well taken care of. Free coffee, tea and water in the lobby and rooms, wifi throughout - and a little yellow duck in the sink to take home! Very sweet. The staff was both friendly and helpful. It was very clean and calm even though the hotel is in the center of town and I had a room to the street. The Sunday brunch was delicious with both hot white (!!) and milk chocolate, lots of different breads and cakes, eggs, fried spinach, cheeses and sliced meats as well as freshly squeezed carrot juice. The parking is in an indoor all electronic parking which I appreciated.

I am surprised this place has so many good votes by Tripadvisor. Yes location is very good but the hotel is awful ! Badly decorated, oldish , smelly, and really bad taste in comparison of the other Lugano hotels. Service is good except for the barmaid who is really arrogant. Rooms ( i had a suite) are terrible .
Breakfast buffet was the only positive point for this hotel.

Dear TheGastronomist,

thanks a lot for your comment.

I’m so glad you liked the friendliness and efficient attitude of our Staff.

I am instead really saddened to know that our decor, furnishings and classic atmosphere were not to your likings: we know that it is a matter of personal tastes and have to accept we cannot please everyone.

I wish you have only reported your dissatisfaction with regard to your room to a member of the Staff and we would have made all our best to help you finding another solution.

Our breakfast buffet is considered by the vast majority of our guests to be one of our points of strenght and I’m so glad you conveyed on this.

In case you would like to give us a second chance to show you how important you are, we will more than glad to show you one of our brand new nice Suites on the fith floor.

Best regards,

Carlo Fontana, GM & Staff

The staff treat us very well and the room was very comfortable. We had a great time and can recommend it very highly. The room was quiet and the internet worked quickly. It was an easy walk to the lake and to a delicious restaurant. The hotel is in a pedestrian zone and there are many shops in the area. A special thanks to the manager Paola Fontana Benea (I hope I spelled her name correctly) who helped make the stay very comfortable. Thank you also to the staff, I don't remember all the names, but each one greeted us with a smile and helped make our stay wonderful.

The Hotel is at the center of Lugano. Very welcome and has a lovely charm and inviting feel to it. Unlike many has hotels has a unique and warm decoration with tasteful details. The people at the hotel are just amazing, the care, the smile, the way the always help you and welcome you makes you want to come back always. The room is very very comfortable, and if you come from the UK they do have a plug that would fit UKs electric devices. As for the shower there is plenty of hot water and many set ups with to massage your back. Plus point and a surprise. Breakfast is catered for all tastes and has some Swiss twist to it as well. Yes I would definitely come back.
