“A great hotel with a great staff”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Conveniently located in Lugano downtown. I was impressed by the details: if you are there by car, the valet will offer bottles of water for the trip. The minibar is free. The Internet connection is perfect. And I found a small rubber duck waiting for me in the basin of the bathroom (and you can take it away). They even have a pillow menu: in case you are not happy with the three pillows in the room, you can ask them for different pillows. The breakfast is much better than a average coffee shop. Of course the rooms are clean and very quiet.

Whenever I travel to Lugano,I stay at the Dante, just because it feels like coming home. All the staff is very kind and will always help you out, whatever problem there is. The hotel is situated in the center of Lugano, so it is easy to get around by foot. And you should never ever miss breakfast at the Dante - ever.

The staff are so helpful, welcoming and prepared to go the extra mile. It is the little touches that make the stay at this hotel memorable and worthwhile, from the friendliness of the staff to the extra snacks when you order wine, to the advice and guidance in planning your day. Everything about the hotel is a reflection of their attention to detail. Great central location and an enjoyable trip as a result.

Staying in many 4star hotels throughout Europe, I am not easily impressed. Lugano Dante managed to do just that!

They really make you feel welcome and have such an eye for detail, that you wonder why they have not 5 stars! Who else has a chocolate factory at the breakfast buffet and a daily changing carpet in the elevators? Not to mention the quality of the beds, the complimentary attentions and the red carpet at the valet parking...

I truly recommend to stay in this place, even if you have to drive a few hours extra to get there.
I will definitely go there again, and this time bring the family with me.

From the friendly and helpful staff, the very clean and very nice rooms, the wonderful breakfast buffet and the central location - I doubt it can get much better than this in Lugano. Every time I turned around, there was someone from the staff with a smile and a genuine interest helping their guests.

We selected this hotel based on location and all the rave reviews. Well it does live up to all the hype. Extremely friendly and helpful reception with excellent English and German, a charming hotel on a small square literally right next to the funicular that takes you to and from the rail station. Absolutely brilliant for anyone arriving by train. You are there in a few minutes. Loved the added touch of candy jars and goodies by the reception that became unfortunately for my waist line quite addictive. The lobby is cheerful and we did have a small snack, served quickly and delicious. The room was cosy, and having prepared by reading many of the reviews here I did ask and was rewarded with a room on a higher floor. We had a splendid view of the old town square and beautiful surrounding buidlings. So much fun to just walk out the door and there you are in Lugano's beautiful and charming old town, just minutes from the gorgeous lakeside promenade. Lugano is beautiful and makes for a wonderful weekend getaway especially when the weather in Switzerland north of the Alps is rainly and depressing. You feel like you are in Italy but everything acutally runs on time :) Dante is definitely a go-again destination and we will be back.
