What a pleasant surprise to find a hotel like this one. Great location especially coming off the train, on the funicular and there you are. The staff are friendly and attentive and nothing is too much trouble. Set up in the foyer is complimentary coffee ( Nespresso machine ) , tea, water and nibbles. The front desk is adorned with sweets and an evil chocolate brownie to try.WIFI Internet is free as well as soft drinks and water in the minibar. A pleasant change to having to pay for every little extra at other hotels. Rooms are spacious , the shower has some force behind it too. The breakfast is vast and fresh and the coffee is good.

Stayed here for three nights in April 2010 and enjoyed it. It is a very good location for walking around town and 10 minute walk from the conference center. Excellent breakfast, nice rooms, and fast Wifi. Recommended.

Very nice hotel that was recommended by one of our business associates. Very clean and top shelf service, the breakfast in the morning was very well done. Drinks in the evening also put a nice touch on the day. Coffee is available in the lobby and meant for gathering.

Tip: If you come by train, use the tram to get from the railway station to the hotel it drops you off about 100 m from the front entrance to the hotel

We spent two night at the Hotel Dante over Valentine's day week end. As soon as we arrived we received a very warm welcoming by the staff. We decided to explore the city right away, so we just handed the car to the valet that even delivered our luggage to our room ( by the way thank you very much Pietro!!). The lobby is always filled with sweets
and a Nespresso coffee machine available to use at any time you wish, couldn't ask for more!!
The rooms are nice and comfortable, and the location couldn't be better, right on the city center easy to reach the whole city.
The staff was super nice to us, they even gave us a little stuffed animal for our 9 month old daughter that she adored!!
As everybody mentioned the breakfast is outstanding, couldn't get enough of that hot chocolate. You can find all kind of foods, from fruit to cheeses, bread, sweets, tea, coffee, cereal and yogurt, enough to fill you up until late afternoon.
I wouldn't think twice on booking this Hotel again!!

this is a lovely hotel for a short stay. It's very much a business hotel but we loved the location right in the town close to restaurants and only a short walk to the lake. We had a quality class room, a little on the small side but adequate for a short stay and beautifully decorated. We liked the reception area which is very comfortable with fresh coffee and tea available all day. The breakfast is delicious, so much choice of well prepared food and helpful staff in attendance. All the staff in reception were very helpful and friendly.
