“Fantastic experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014 via mobile

From the friendly and helpful staff, the very clean and very nice rooms, the wonderful breakfast buffet and the central location - I doubt it can get much better than this in Lugano. Every time I turned around, there was someone from the staff with a smile and a genuine interest helping their guests.

We selected this hotel based on location and all the rave reviews. Well it does live up to all the hype. Extremely friendly and helpful reception with excellent English and German, a charming hotel on a small square literally right next to the funicular that takes you to and from the rail station. Absolutely brilliant for anyone arriving by train. You are there in a few minutes. Loved the added touch of candy jars and goodies by the reception that became unfortunately for my waist line quite addictive. The lobby is cheerful and we did have a small snack, served quickly and delicious. The room was cosy, and having prepared by reading many of the reviews here I did ask and was rewarded with a room on a higher floor. We had a splendid view of the old town square and beautiful surrounding buidlings. So much fun to just walk out the door and there you are in Lugano's beautiful and charming old town, just minutes from the gorgeous lakeside promenade. Lugano is beautiful and makes for a wonderful weekend getaway especially when the weather in Switzerland north of the Alps is rainly and depressing. You feel like you are in Italy but everything acutally runs on time :) Dante is definitely a go-again destination and we will be back.

Very welcoming place: staff is kind, helpful and available; rooms are quite big (for Swiss standards) and extremely clean, location perfect.
You can "customize" your room, very convenient for parents.
And the staff is genuinely nice and helpful
The breakfast buffet is huge and simply delicious.
And did I say the staff was great?

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.
