We arrived on the Bernina express and followed instructions to take the little funicular from the station that took 70 seconds and opened at the front door of the Dante! We could not have been welcomed more warmly offered optional rooms, indulged in the free tapas style buffet during happy hours with the purchase of a drink. A very short... More

We stayed at this hotel while in Lugano recently. What a great place! Very helpful staff, always thinking one step ahead of you. Beautiful public and private rooms. Regular rooms are traditionally "European small", but still comfortable and well-appointed. This hotel also a great location and a nice happy hour buffet, in addition to a huge breakfast selection. Highly recommend... More

The hotel has a fantastic location in the centre of the old town in Lugano, a short walk from the shops, restaurants and lake. The funicular down from the train station to the town stops very close to the hotel. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The room was very comfortable and had a nice view of the square...

A year on from the last visit, I was even more impressed by the staff and families are clearly made welcome. The location at the foot of the town funicular, down from the railway station, but also in the middle of the maze of the main shopping streets is superb. The lake is also just a few minutes walk away.... More

My wife and I recently spent two nights in the Dante, and only wish we could have spent more time in Lugano. The hotel was terrific, the breakfast amazing and the location unbeatable. A funny thing about it...we arrived by train, walked outside the small station and found a cab waiting. A short ride to our hotel, and 15 Swiss... More

We have three kids, and this was a perfect place for us. Wonderful restaurants, many thing to do, and in a nice walkable part of town. The staff was terrific, and watching your car be robotically parked is not to be missed.

At first glance, I did not know what to expect with the hotel. But, we were hailed into the lobby by an absolutely wonderful staff who was very kind and sweet. The lobby was very comfortably and warm (not temperature). The hotel provides free WiFi and is 100% smoke free, which is a plus, especially in Europe. Our room was... More

We so enjoyed our stay at Hotel Lugano. It was a very pleasant experience from the the moment we walked in the door to check in to the moment we checked out. The location, the breakfast, the staff, the room-everything and everyone was delightful! The funicular from the train station is very close to the front door of this hotel....makes... More

Great location with friendly staff and an excellent breakfast. Staff are very friendly and helpful and knowledgeable about the city and the surrounding area. Travelling to the hotel by train from other main stations are very easy with a short funicular ride down to and from the front of the hotel. A special treat is the 24h coffee in the... More

This is a wonderful small hotel. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. We were given an excellent restaurant recommendation - Cucina d'Alice. Nice evening appetizers. The breakfast was delicious. I highly recommend this hotel. The location is fabulous.
