I have been a client of this hotel since several years now and I will continue to be: the quality of this hotel overall sets the standard for hospitality. In particular the professionality, friendliness and personal touch of the personnel deserves a particular compliment as the standard has been maintained over the years, if not improved. Definitely outstanding.

Overall, an excellent hotel. Great service and reception staff. Delicious breakfast buffet with a large choice of dishes. Very central location. The only downside was the room size and bathroom equipment (a simple shower cabin and no bath tub).

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
