Good choice at breakfast, lift mattress obviously changed every day (what you'll be simply able read from it), weather forecast leaflet displayed before entering the lifts, friendly staff, nice room (but why so many pillows on bed ?) - these are only a few things that a guest can notice when staying at this hotel. Centrally located but quiet, spotlessly... More

The hotel is well located in the heart of Lugano. The service is amazing. You feel as you were entering at home. Nothing is missing and the employees are welcoming you each time with a smile. The hotel even has its on e parking, which is all automated and secure.

The staff is very friendly, very italian type of hospitality. One of the reception staff, if not wrong her name is Valentina makes you feel really home. The lobby is cozy,... More

Anyone who travels often in Switzerland knows that if you book a single room you may get a single room. The Dante is one of those places and even by the standards of Swiss single rooms the room I received, no 208, was teeny tiny. As a result my initial impressions were extremely negative not helped by a bathroom with... More

This hotel is well located in the city center and promises a friendly staff and a clean and tidy environment. There are lots of "free goodies" -- a welcome drink, a minibar filled with soft drinks, little cakes by the reception desk, a choice of candy bars to take with you on departure, and a satisfactory -- if not memorable...

Dear Paul, Thank you for reviewing our hotel on Tripadvisor. We are sorry we were not able to fully meet your expectations, especially regarding your room. First of all we would like to make clear that we are a 4 star hotel, not a 5 star. Perhaps, because of this confusion, your expectations were higher. We remember that upon your... More

The hotel was recommended by a business friend. Excellent choice. Stayed previous visits on the lake but the location right in the centre of old town Lugano cannot be beaten. I felt welcome the moment I walked in. The staff at the front desk was extremely friendly and check-in was smooth and quick. I loved my room with the view... More

Awesome is the only word to describe this hotel. The decor, the cleanliness, the breakfast, the water/coffee, treats, the evening reception and all else is great but the staff is what is the most memorable part of our stay. The front desk staff was always friendly and helpful. We especially want to thank Pietro who always went above and beyond... More

It s not so easy to find, but in the middle of the old town shopping center, not on the lake and also no lake view, but from as soon as you step in, you realize that this is an exceptional good real Swiss quality hotel with professional people running it.

Hotel is located within walking distance of various stores, ie Hermes, Gucci, Prada, etc and also near to Lugano Lake. Room seems to be newly renovated and very comfortable room, big enough to share for 4 persons. Breakfast is good. Reception people are all very friendly & helpful.
