“Best location and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

It is good to come back to a fine quality hotel. Unfortunately, my name did not ring a bell anymore when I made the reservation. Otherwise everything was great: reservation was quick and easy, the room as we expected it. We were travelling with our dog and for CHF 20, our dog received a basket to sleep in and some goodies. Parking was easy and fun to watch the car "disappear". The lady running the breakfast room is a doll: she set up a separate table for us without any fuss or commotion, always with a smile and a gentle word. And, of course, the location in the middle of the city center is perfect to out, shopping or anything else.

If I could say only one word to the hotel would be that it is very kind! If you come with a car there is a garage next to the hotel were you don't need to drive in your car because it goes all automaticaly! The best thing is that allot of stuff are free! you have wifi all the time free and youcan go for 30 minutes on there computers for free! you don't have to pay extra!
it's just perfect!

If I want to describe this hotel in one word it will be generosity. They didn't miss any point so you as a guest will feel good. Big room with big bed and pillows for your tast, free minibar, wonderful shower, very good location. Breakfast is tasty with very good variety. The staff look forwad to help you in everything they are awesome! It is by far the best hotel I have been. I think we liked Lugano very much because of the hospitality of this hotel.

Room Tip: Take the quality room it worth the price

We came two families for 2 nights, after traveling for two weeks. we stayed in many different hotels during this vacation and hotel Dante was the last hotel we visited before our vacation was over. It was the most amazing hotel we've been at during this vacation. The staff at the reception and in general are nothing less but amazing. Perfect costumer service with a perfect attitude. The breakfast buffet is rich and thoughtful and is served until 13:00. The location of the hotel is right at center, 5 minutes walk from every point of intersert in Lugano. I've got nothing but compliments about this hotel, i enjoyed every second of the stay. Easily would be a 5 star hotel if it had a swimming pool.

I've stayed twice at the hotel! Both times, amazing! They make sure you got everything you need!
All the drinks in the minibar were free! Breakfast mixes Italian and Swiss best foods! :) The housekeeping staff is awesome! They are super elderly friendly! The location is great, close to all the stores, restaurants and , literally one step from the "fonicolare" ( cable car that comes from the train station).
Make sure to go to the lobby in the evening for drinks and music!!!!!

Don't stay here if you want massive rooms, faceless staff and so called 5 star service. Do stay here if you want to experience a wonderful family run stylish hotel where all the staff make you feel special. The service was really impeccable, attentive and friendly but never intrusive. The room was just how we wanted it, preselected pillows and temperature just right.

The Dante is a real gem, so refreshing to find hotels like this in this world dominated by international chains.

Always stayed her at the time of the Eurocucina exhibition in Milan as it is an easy drive to and from the expo each day and a very good value for money option. Have stayed here also for pleasure as well as business. The rooms are superb, the staff are extremely helpful but the real highlight for me as someone who loves gadgets is the incredible automated parking system that whisks your car away and parks it under the hotel and then brings it back when you are ready to leave. Always a great experience to stay here.

Room Tip: All are good
