The Dante is ideal for business/leisure as its location is city centre yet within a two minute walk you are lakeside and looking up at the magnificent mountains that surround the water. Its my third stay at the hotel and there is always a 'nice' atmosphere within the common rooms at the hotel. The staff are extremely friendly and the... More

My third stay here and over the years if anything it has improved on the really high standard already achieved. There isn't a single area of the hotel I could find to criticise which, to be frank makes it almost unique among my hotel reviews!. This is a really well run hotel combining superb use of technology with traditional hospitality... More

Excellant check in system, prepare all you need before arrive, needn't wait in check in counter, rich breakfast. Staff have good manner, can't find any point to charge them. Room is clean and comfort. Cable car are renovated until the end of 2016, so can't reach hotel directly from train station cause little bit inconvenient.

Was planning another trip to Lugano and somehow missed reviewing the Dante Center the last time I stayed there. One thing that was consistent from the moment I arrived at the hotel until I left was the helpful and genuinely caring attitude of the staff which included housekeeping and the breakfast attendants. It was obvious that management is very selective... More

This hotel deserve a special evaluation. The staff is very professional and it seems very well trained. They offer the information that you may need in a polite way. The lobby is well resolved with space for have a tea or read a newspaper. The room we were had a nice view of the Cathedral. The breakfast is complete. It... More

We stayed here for one night after travelling to Rome, Florence and Venice on our way to Lucerne. This was the most disappointing hotel we stayed in. Although the room was clean, the Hotel has a very 80's feel and could use some revamping. We travelled with our teenage son and found the room and bathroom very small. The shower... More

Our thoughts on the Lugano Dante have been mostly captured by others, and we would not seek to contradict any of the very positive comments. This is a unique establishment where you can customise your stay by pillow selection, contents of your minibar etc, and a breakfast presentation which we suggest is not bettered anywhere else in Switzerland! The staff... More

This is the best hotel in town, it's located in the old town. There might be more luxurious hotels around but you won't get the same atmosphere. Although its in the middle of old town, you won't find it difficult to park the car car or walk to the lake, old and antique coffee shops are around you. And not... More
