Stayed here more than 30 times and have always been happy. It is really a business hotel designed for single travelers (the breakfast room is a series of small two person tables) but has a great location for everything in Lugano if you are on vacation. The breakfast is very good but no restaurant service at any other time however... More

The Dante certainly lived up to it's excellent reviews. The hotel is perfectly located right in the centre of town, a very short walk to the lake, shopping and places to eat and drink. The hotel is very efficient, friendly and comfortable. The staff are amazing, really making the extra effort to effort and lots of thought has been put... More

We just stayed at this hotel for two nights. Originally I had selected somewhere else but the reviews weren't great so switched to the Dante. Yes, it may be a bit more expensive than most but wheat you get is a fantastic location in the heart of the old town, amazing staff who were so friendly and helpful and an... More

The location is excellent for exploring Lugano city centre, but does not have lake views. It's a dozen steps from the funicular that runs between the train station and the city. It's close to Manor (department store with cafe/restaurant) and the main shopping area. The rooms were clean & comfortable but not particularly spacious. Beds were comfortable with a good... More

The location of the hotel was probably my favorite aspect, it was a great hub for exploring in and around Lugano. They certainly make a very big effort to cater to every small need and that is a nice touch. Really i dont have anything negative to say about the hotel (breakfast was mediocre compared to other swiss hotels, but... More

Not the most luxurious but there is little that they haven't thought of here to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. Excellent location, excellent service, and is one reason why I like to return to Lugano.

I was in this hotel on a business trip for 3 nights. Very good location, just at the city centre. We got a warm welcome, staff was really nice and they offered us a very personal attention. Room was kind of small but very nice decorated and with a very comfortable bed. Nice details, like a rubber ducky floating on... More

Following TA reviews we chose this hotel for one night in Lugano. After the reservation we received a storm of e-mails thanking us for the reservation and asking about special wishes as to the accommodation, including the name of our little dog. This was nice, if a little excessive. We arrived very late, around 23.00h , received by an extremely... More

Dear Angela, we know that our high rate on Tripadvisor may create very high expectations and it surely becomes more and more difficult to surprise and satisfy our guests, as well as motivating us in trying to constantly improve the quality of our services. We usually send a confirmation email upon reservation and a second one, three days before arrival,... More

The hotel location is amazing. Right two steps away form Piazza Riforma, the main piazza of the town. The nice Via Nassa is really close and we found amazing luxury shopping. We stayed in the lobby and enjoyed the "aperitivo" before dinner and we enjoyed wonderful drinks and bites. Highly recommend!
