Recently I was lucky to take TripAdvisor recommendation about this hotel. I visited Lugano between August 13 through August 27. I spent the whole period in Lugano Dante Hotel. My initial booking was for few days. I changed all my plans and used this hotel my home away from home. I will not even consider visiting any other hotel in... More

This hotel is at the very heart of Lugano. Which is an advantage, but might be difficult because of external noise. I had a room facing a back alley and it was pretty tranquil. The rooms are large and clean, very well appointed with all facilities one needs, including coffee maker, bathrobes and loafers. The only room related complaint is... More

I was very impressed with this hotel and would certainly recommend it to anyone staying in Lugano. It is the most ideal location -- near the train station as well as tons of restaurants/shops. It is also a very quick walk to get to the lake. The hotel itself was wonderful. The lobby has free coffee, tea, water and croissants... More

We stayed at hotel Dante over a long weekend in May 2015. I picked the hotel after reading all of the reviews and comparing different hotels. I was cautiously optimistic when we picked the hotel, but pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The main points: 1. The lobby is very spacious and a great place to unwind with a drink in... More

From the moment we arrived at check-in we knew we were going to enjoy our 3 day stay. Entered our room to find chocolates on the bed, my husband opened the safe and found chocolates in the safe, this automatically puts a smile on your face. Then we go to the bathroom, and not to give the surprise away, we... More

A lightening visit for work. I stay a lot in hotels and like to use the gym when I do. Checking the website before I left, I saw no sign of any such facilities and so did not take my stuff. Wrong move... Surely the existence of a gym could be mentionned on the website ( or less hidden if... More
