Two of the most important things for me when staying at a hotel are cleanliness and customer service, and I'm pleased to say that the Lugano Dante Center gets both of these points exactly right. Customer service here is exceptional, just as the previous reviewers have reported. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the little touches and extras really... More

One of the most beautiful and well-thought hotels I have ever been to. Hotel staff starts to care about you before your arrival and customize your stay. Customer centricity is outstanding. And the interior is so welcome and comfortable! Recommend to all my friends.

Always like going back to the Dante Hotel in Lugano. Location is great just 100 meters from the lake (morning runs at the lake are recommended). Rooms are stylish, yet simple with fast wifi. You can preorder many items such as special pillows in advance. A nice funny touch is the rubber duck floating in the wash basin as you... More

There were six of us traveling together and we didn't have prior reservations for this hotel. They were able to accommodate us, and it turned out to be a wonderful experience! Beautiful hotel with gracious multi-lingual staff. The rooms were automatically upgraded at no extra charge, and they were so comfortable, clean and quiet. Really, really quiet, which was wonderful.... More

Hotel Lugano Dante Center was our ”home” for six days during our holiday in Switzerland. Every member of the staff was extremely friendly and helpful, making us feel very welcome. We had a large newly renovated room (306), which we can highly recommend. Comfortable bed and good sleep quality. Impressive selection at the breakfast buffet. Despite its central location in...

Hotel arranges room to your wishes if you fill the form before arrival. They send an SMS when room is ready and you may then check-in (a good feeling to know)... A very rich breakfast buffet I think starts at 6:30... (there are even different kind of olives) When arriving town - with train - just take the funicular and... More

The hotel is located right at the foot of funicular that connects the main railway station with the old town in Lugano. No need for a taxi. When you arrive at the train station, hop on the funicular at the station and you will see the hotel when you step off the funicular. Lots of restaurants, shopping, sights, and boat... More

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
