“Good quality hotel.”
Reviewed 15 October 2008

The hotel and my single room was really lovely. The breakfast buffet was very impressive, don´t think I could have asked for anything else to eat. The staff at reception could have been a bit more helpful and the restaurant should offer a greater variety and quality of food for dinner. Overall I really liked this hotel and I would recommend it for other people.

Dear Guest,

We would like to thank you very much for your feedback. We have passed on your comments to our team. Positive comments, such as yours, help us to spread "the buzz" worldwide. The Hotel Lugano Dante is located in a wonderful pedestrian area in the Lugano city center. There are numerous restaurants to choose from and there is something for everyone. At Hotel Lugano Dante we do not have a restaurant, instead, we offer a convenient "snack service" with a small selection of food and wine. Regarding the Reception staff, we try our best to meet and satisfy any need or request of our guests. Sometimes, during a chaotic day, it may happen that our practice of "one to one" customer service is challenged. We apologize for this. We take your comments serious and hopefully we can learn and improve from them. Thank you for choosing Hotel Lugano Dante. We hope to see you again soon in Lugano.
Sincerely,
Hotel Lugano Dante Center
Carlo Fontana, GM & the Staff

Excellent hotel in the center of Lugano. Close to everything, even the funicular to the railway station. Tastefully decorated rooms, secure garage, very helpful staff, great breakfast buffet. Would come back again.

Dear 4MillionMilesLater,

Thank you for giving us top marks.

We are pleased you found the Hotel Lugano Dante staff helpful and it was our pleasure to serve you.

We hope being "close to everything" in the pedestrian city center, along with our secure garage and near proximity to cable car, allowed you to better enjoy Lugano with the freedom of not needing your car.

Our breakfast buffet is quality controlled daily and is always a crowd pleaser.

And yes, do come back again. We hope to see you soon in beautiful Lugano!

Sincerely,
Carlo Fontana GM & the Staff

Overall exceed expectations. Read the review prior to booking and they are accurate. The little extra's, such as teddy for daughter; coffee, cakes, etc, make's this hotel very special.
I do a lot of business travel and rarely see a foyer so friendly with guest sitting arond relaxing and enjoying the hotel itself.
Perfect location for the lake, shopping, and enjoying Lugano.The rooms are of a very high standard.. Guest and family friendly with wonderful staff, who enjoy their part in making the visit successful. They take pride in the quality of the Dante and it shows.

We were booked into this hotel by the Switzerland Travel Centre. It was a really super hotel, the location is excellant, just by the funiculalr down from the main station. Very central but surprisingly quiet. The staff are charning and go out of their way to help. The rooms are very comfortable, and without being asked we were upgraded and I was delighted to find a nespresso machine in our room. The hotel provides coffee, tea, water, pastries and chocolate 24 hrs a day. However, the very best feature of this hotel was the BREAKFAST. I am a fanantic about a good hotel breakfast and theirs was great. The best I had all over Switzerland.
If you are looking for a comfortable friendly hotel in the centre of Lugano you couldn't do better than choose this one.

Dear skibad ,

We were delighted to read your comments. Satisfied customers are the best way to get new and repeat business. We have passed along the compliments to our staff.

Upgrades are something extra we offer our guests if there is availability.

Our breakfast has always been a main attraction and is quality controlled daily.

We are so glad you pointed out our central location and near proximity of cable car to main station.

I love this extremely efficiently run Hotel. The location is excellent for business or pleasure. Their custmer service is excellent.
The breakfast buffet is great. The rooms are very comfortable. Each is different and very charming.
I was in town this trip for an appointment and wish I had time to stay longer.
The Lugano Dante is listed as a 4 star but it deserves a 5.
