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

The Funicular from the Lugano train station is closed for updation till Dec 2016 so we took a taxi to the hotel. Stayed for 3 nights (in 1st week of June 2015) in their newly renovated Suite on Level 1. Room decor was nice and modern, very different from the feeling of the lobby / reception area which does seem... 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

We (family of 2 adults and 1 child) stayed in this hotel in the first week of June. This hotel is true to its ranking and certainly ranks as the best hotel in Lugano. Considering that this hotel is not on the Lakefront (compared to many other hotels) and to that extent it has a disadvantage to begin with. But... More

We have stayed in this property for just 1 night but we are pleased with our stay. However, some points to note 1) thou the hotel is near to train station but you have to carry the luggages down some steps and walking down steep slope before reaching the hotel. Upon checked out, we decided to call for taxi that... More

Dear SGSkyes23 We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at Hotel Lugano Dante and thank you for having taken a bit of your time to post your comment. Because of the important construction works for the enhancement and refurbishment of the Lugano Railway Station, the Funicular will be completely renovated and therefore out of service starting from August 4th 2014...

I have been staying in Hotel Lugano Dante for several months, now, and would go nowhere else when visiting Lugano. Staff are always extremely helpful and friendly, and their service is fault-free. Rooms are all (I know, I tried most) very high quality, and its breakfasts excellent to begin the day with (although quite dangerous for the waistline!). The location... More

Have stayed here on multiple visits to Lugano. This hotel is wonderfully situated in the center of town, near the lake, shopping and excellent restaurants. While here on business, the free time is well spent by taking a lake cruise or walking about and enjoying the cuisine. The restaurants serve mostly Italian food and there is always a nice gelato...

This was my second stay in Lugano Dante and I'm already looking forward to going back. There's something very special about this hotel, and I think a lot of that is to do with the amazing service. Hotel management institutions need to send their students here to see how it's done. Everyone with a smile, and nothing is too much... More
