Always stayed her at the time of the Eurocucina exhibition in Milan as it is an easy drive to and from the expo each day and a very good value for money option. Have stayed here also for pleasure as well as business. The rooms are superb, the staff are extremely helpful but the real highlight for me as someone... More

The hotel is really nice, we had a double room with a beautiful view on the piazza. The room was a bit small but very nice, very clean and well appointed. Staff was very friendly, breakfast was amazing, the best I've ever had in a hotel all-over the world. The location is perfect, in the middle of Lugano, just in... More

Small but cosy rooms, central (bottom of funicular railway connecting mainline bus/railway to down town), very friendly staff, great family atmosphere. Great Breakfast. Coffee and tea available all day. Good free internet. My choice always in Lugano.

The Lugano Dante hotel is one of the most accessible hotels in Lugano when travelling by train. Just a funicular ride down and you are a few meters away from the front door. The hotel is also positioned right in the center of Lugano, so walking to any of the sites, the lake, bus station or the old district is... More

Stayed there a week, my room was quite (very) small and old style. The beds were confortable, but the overall of the room was nearly reaching 4star hotel standards. The room had only one very little window facing a sort of internal "patio" if it can be called so. Service was good I have to say. Conviennent location, which must... More

I am not one to write reviews, but I think that the Dante deserved it! I just completed a 2 week stay at the Dante for a business trip. I stayed in the newly renovated junior suite, which was amazing! Everything was new and clean and great views of the lake. It is near impossible to find a room in... More

Another fantastic stay at Lugano Dante Hotel . We spent half of the year in hotels, normally 5 stars. But an experience that you make at Lugano Dante you cannot see in any top hotel of London, Moscow, Singapore, Shanghai or Zurich .

Having read so many glowing reviews and received so many welcoming emails from the hotel, we were eagerly looking forward to our stay at the Lugano Dante Centre Hotel. Unfortunately, not as much effort is put into getting the small things right as there is in promoting the hotel. Our room on the first floor was beautifully decorated, but was... More

Dear Kilsherry, We thank you for your feedback. We are saddened to know that you were not fully satisfied with the quality of your stay. We realize that when expectations run too high, because of other comments, it becomes more and more difficult to surprise and satisfy our beloved guests. We are a small family owned hotel, rooms are all... More

Our stay at this hotel was perfect from the arrival. The breakfast was one of the best we had in Switzerland. We will return to this hotel when visiting Lugano again and we highly recommend it to everyone.
