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

This is my 4th time in Lugano and at the Dante. I travel here for work and the proximity of the hotel to the Congressi is perfect...walking distance. There are a ton of shops and great restaurants steps from the hotel. The complimentary breakfast and evening appetizers are a lovely and unexpected treat. The rooms are neat, clean and you... More

The staff was awesome and the location could not have been better. I have been to Lugano before and was reluctant to try a new hotel, but this one exceeded my expectations. A definite come backer!....

Having stayed in hotels worldwide, many of which were 5 star luxury, this tops the lot in terms of service and comfort. The receptionists, particularly Kristina and Valentina were so warm and friendly. All of the staff walked around with a big and genuine smile to show how much they enjoy their job and how much they enjoyed hosting their... More

We spent 2 nights here last week (early June, 2015), and were very satisfied. Our room was a renovated one, decorated in modern elegance, with a bidet and very modern bathroom. That particular room had a modern gadget-charging station that let you charge a half dozen things at once, with the connections that go to most phones and gadgets. The... More

Dear Guest, We are very happy for your feedback, since we have noticed that usually you stay in 5-star luxury hotels, and we are only a small 4 star family run hotel. For all our readers it is important to say that our interior decor and design, including the lobby (renovated in 2010) and most of our rooms, have a... More
