“Excellent location, Friendly staff, Superb Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2010

I've stayed at several upscale hotels in Lugano and this by far is the best for location, service and accommodations. I always stay at the Dante because they make me feel at home. The Breakfast Buffet is outstanding, the staff warm, friendly and very helpful. I recommend this hotel highly!!!!

Its a great hotel with very friendly staff, who go out of their way to be helpful . The selection at breakfast was superb. There is never any reason to be hungry as the staff leave bowls of chocolates, sweets and cakes for guests to help themselves. When we left the hotel by car we were given a bottle of water to take with us on the journey. This summed up he attitude of all the staff. I have no reservation about recommending this hotel

The Hotel Lugano Dante Center was superb! It is conveniently located near the train station and just a few steps from the wonderful Lugano square, shopping and Lake Lugano. The staff was very courteous and helpful. The rooms, while small by U.S. standards were well appointed and maintained. I’d recommend requesting a room facing the small square in front of the hotel. The free high speed internet came in handy, Lastly, the morning breakfast buffet was more like a full brunch and a fantastic way to start the day.

What a pleasant surprise to find a hotel like this one. Great location especially coming off the train, on the funicular and there you are. The staff are friendly and attentive and nothing is too much trouble. Set up in the foyer is complimentary coffee ( Nespresso machine ) , tea, water and nibbles. The front desk is adorned with sweets and an evil chocolate brownie to try.WIFI Internet is free as well as soft drinks and water in the minibar. A pleasant change to having to pay for every little extra at other hotels. Rooms are spacious , the shower has some force behind it too. The breakfast is vast and fresh and the coffee is good.
