Lugano Dante Center Swiss Quality Hotel

Reviewed 2 September 2014

We stayed 3 nights in late August. This is a wonderful hotel. Facilities and deco are not the greatest and most luxury, but the staff (every one of them) took great care to make sure you have a wonderful stay. A lot of small surprises, here and there, make this hotel great. Hotel staff are also very knowledgeable: every time I asked a question, I got a good answer. Not to mention, the breakfast was also great, offering probably too many choices.

After being absent for a few years, I returned to the Dante for a two night stay. And it was still at the same high level as before. All very clean and cosy, great breakfast buffet, friendly people. I like the new "Pillow Menue" and the rain shower. I will return soon.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are nice at higher levels (4&5)

We stayed at the Hotel for a week-end. It's located in the middle of the old-town part of Lugano where you find different restaurants and shops. The staff was very friendly, the room was quiet, but the view wasn't that great. We just can recommend this hotel, although the price is quite high.

Stayed here last year on a family holiday. Living in Lugarno, Sydney, Lugano Switzerland was a must see and the Dante was perfect. Walking distance to lake, shopping, parks everything as well as out front of the connecting cog rail station to the main rail station. The kids loved the loft bedroom, the views over the old town and up the lake were spectacular. The hot chocolate machines at breakfast also another treat for the kids. Staff were always helpful and approachable.

Stayed here more than 30 times and have always been happy. It is really a business hotel designed for single travelers (the breakfast room is a series of small two person tables) but has a great location for everything in Lugano if you are on vacation. The breakfast is very good but no restaurant service at any other time however there are many dining options right outside the door. The bar provides some free food with the purchase of a drink which is actually quite good.

Rooms can be a bit small but some have recently been renovated with new bathrooms and wonderful showers. Forget parking, its cheaper to buy a new car!

Service very good and quick. Free Internet is excellent.

Room Tip: It's a bit of a rabbit warren which creates many different sizes of room. It's probably luck...

The Dante certainly lived up to it's excellent reviews. The hotel is perfectly located right in the centre of town, a very short walk to the lake, shopping and places to eat and drink. The hotel is very efficient, friendly and comfortable. The staff are amazing, really making the extra effort to effort and lots of thought has been put into all the small touches that make you smile.This special attention to detail starts before you arrive, I recommend taking advantage of the online check in.
The room it's self was very clean, quite and conformable. We were also given a free up grade. The buffet breakfast has a lot of choice and was well prepared.
If you are looking for a stylish modern boutique hotel this may not be for you. We found this hotel perfect for Lugano, clean, perfect location, very friendly and a good nights sleep. Thank you to all the staff at Lugano Dante for making it a wonderful stay. I look forward to coming back.

We just stayed at this hotel for two nights. Originally I had selected somewhere else but the reviews weren't great so switched to the Dante. Yes, it may be a bit more expensive than most but wheat you get is a fantastic location in the heart of the old town, amazing staff who were so friendly and helpful and an incredibly comfortable room. The breakfast buffet is also excellent and has a lot of choice.

This was a real find in Lugano and we absolutely loved this hotel!
