“perfect short stay and business hotel in the heart of old town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

We (mature couple) decided to catch a bit of spring and the mall in Mendrisio. Decided to stay in the old town of Lugano, with a small train connecting hotel with main railway station. I had spent a night at this hotel years ago on a business trip. The service, the quality of the room, bed, lighting, bathroom, is absolutely impressive. Breakfast buffet spread is very generious and very good quality. All staff seem to enjoy what they are doing and are keen to make the guests feel at home and make the Lugano Dante their first choice in Lugano. The reception area with comfortable seats, coffee, tea and lots of newspapers is a great plus. Hope to stay there again soon.

Room Tip: reception knows the best rooms.

It's not often you stay in a hotel where you start panicking because you only have 25 minutes for breakfast and that's never going to be enough time to have all the things you want. The breakfast is amazing, such a wide range of delicious fresh sweet and savoury options.

Aside from that, I have only positive thoughts. The rooms are nice, I'm in a single which is small but that's what you get when you travel on business! It's fine though, and the shower is superb and drains properly, which isn't always the case! Free minibar (booze free, understandable) is good and there are always cakes and sweet about in reception which is a nice touch. Free wi-fi anywhere in the hotel is also much appreciated.

Finally, all the staff are great. Every single person says hello to you and are happy to help with anything. I really cannot think of a single negative thing to say, especially for a hotel blessed with such an ideal location.

The staff is attentif, nice and helpful, very good service! our room was comfortable and quiet, the breakfast had a variety of choice and was very good, the reception area is cozy with free coffee or tea and small nice things to eat and newspapers. The free wireless through the whole hotel for several accesses per room was well functioning, the conference room had a good atmosphere, was functional, the after-conference apéritif good, well presented and the lady who served attentif, discreet and friendly, always with a smile. Maybe a small minus: no view, but in the center, 5 minutes (with the "funicolare" from the main station and few walking minutes from the lake. We plan to come again.

Outside the weather was very cold, in hotel very much like at second home, friendly and warm.
The position is very convenient and in few minutes we could reach every where.
The ideal place for lovely romantic weekend. The day start with one of the best breakfast we ever found around the countries we travel regularly.

An excellent breakfast buffet. Comfortable lounge with sweets, tea and coffee for free in an absolutely nice upper class atmosphere. Good access independently if travelling by train or car. Comfortable parking and direct access to the Hotel. In the middle of the city and walking distance to the lake. Absolutely quiet.

It is an elegant and quiet hotel although it is located in the center of Lugano in the proximity of the lake, shops and restaurants. Rooms were lovely, perfectly clean with comfortable beds and different types of pillows. The buffet breakfast was fantastic. Free Wifi and non-alcoholic minibar, complimentary afternoon tea/coffee. Staff were very friendly, helpful and attentive. We will definitely stay here again.
