“Excellent hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

This is an excellent hotel. From the moment I walked in I was treated warmly and taken care of. After checking in and making it up to the room I had some trouble opening the door. One of the housekeepers greeted me by name (I had not met her) and assisted me. The room was well appointed and had a few nice surprises including Swiss chocolate! I had no problems using the WIFI and snacks were available in the lobby. There is also a children's area with some toys. I would definitely stay here again.

The hotel is very easy to find and in a central location. From the train station take the funicular all the way to the bottom. It is on your right.

I spent 3 days in this hotel, with my wife and 2 kids.
Perfect location, conveniently located a few steps from the funicular that leads you to the main train station in a few seconds. Service is fast and efficient. Rooms very comfortable. Free wi-fi. Free consummation from minibar. Breakfast is amazing, really wonderful.

Conveniently located seconds from the funicular from the station, the hotel offers a friendly welcome and nice touches such as welcome drinks and crepes - and the duck! Room was comfortable with a good bathroom. The breakfast buffet is superb, and although there is no restaurant, snacks and pizzas are available, or you can visit Soave 10 across the street or one of the numerous other places.

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in September with family.

The hotel is excellent - fantastic location right at the base of the furnicular, clean and well maintained rooms, extremely helpful staff and an amazing breakfast to start the day!

Thoroughly enjoyed our experience here and would definitely stay again. It is worth the money.

I have never written a review before, but just returned from my stay at Lugano Dante. I was visiting my daughter at college and now understand why it gets such a positive review. The staff at the front desk is polite, helpful and constantly looking to make your stay more pleasurable. Although there are more luxurious hotels in Lugano, I would highly recommend this hotel if you want a warm, comfortable, friendly, clean hotel located in the heart of the city. I will definitely be back!

Excellent hotel in the centre of Lugano. We had a cosy room on the top floor with view on the centre and the mountains. Very cosy and complete. The staff is friendly with just enough humour to tease the guests a bit, but very correct. Breakfast times are wide and the food in great variety. This hotel is expensive, but worth it!

I have stayed at the Dante a number of times over the past 12 months. The hotel is always very clean and well maintained, the staff are very nice and it is right in the middle of the pedestrianised centre of the town. It is surrounded by lovely restaurants for dinner, some of which are only within one or two minute walk. It was lovely to be back. I hope to continue to return.
