“Instant friendships”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

Great location in the center of Lugano, excellent shopping out the front door, short walk to the lake. I had a somewhat hard time finding the parking, but once I figured it out, it was easy. The staff was friendly, helpful. The breakfast was excellent with fresh fruit, meats, cheeses, even a rich chocolate drink that I had to try-rich is the only way to describe it. We felt spoiled and didn't want to leave. On checkout, we were offered chocolate to take on the road, and even provided Dark chocolate bar that I am still savoring. Would return any time and highly recommend this hotel.

Good hotel in a great location. No problems. Small rooms, so be sure to travel with your spouse or a very close friend. Extensive choice at breakfast. Friendly staff. The little old lady a breakfast was a gem.

Room Tip: Higher up = quieter.

Conveniently located in Lugano downtown. I was impressed by the details: if you are there by car, the valet will offer bottles of water for the trip. The minibar is free. The Internet connection is perfect. And I found a small rubber duck waiting for me in the basin of the bathroom (and you can take it away). They even have a pillow menu: in case you are not happy with the three pillows in the room, you can ask them for different pillows. The breakfast is much better than a average coffee shop. Of course the rooms are clean and very quiet.

Whenever I travel to Lugano,I stay at the Dante, just because it feels like coming home. All the staff is very kind and will always help you out, whatever problem there is. The hotel is situated in the center of Lugano, so it is easy to get around by foot. And you should never ever miss breakfast at the Dante - ever.

The staff are so helpful, welcoming and prepared to go the extra mile. It is the little touches that make the stay at this hotel memorable and worthwhile, from the friendliness of the staff to the extra snacks when you order wine, to the advice and guidance in planning your day. Everything about the hotel is a reflection of their attention to detail. Great central location and an enjoyable trip as a result.

Staying in many 4star hotels throughout Europe, I am not easily impressed. Lugano Dante managed to do just that!

They really make you feel welcome and have such an eye for detail, that you wonder why they have not 5 stars! Who else has a chocolate factory at the breakfast buffet and a daily changing carpet in the elevators? Not to mention the quality of the beds, the complimentary attentions and the red carpet at the valet parking...

I truly recommend to stay in this place, even if you have to drive a few hours extra to get there.
I will definitely go there again, and this time bring the family with me.
