Excellent service and staff. Super convenient location. Great design. Don’t miss the breakfast. My go to hotel whenever I stay in Lugano - also offering great value for money. Rooms are redesigned and comfortable - the only negative side (not important for me) is you can find hotels with a better view of the lake.

We stayed at Luganodante for four days and it was a great choice! The central location is perfect for shopping and restaurants. There is a generous spirit here that we especially appreciated after the pandemic! The staff here are exceptional and go out of their way to accommodate guests. We had a nice room, exceptionally clean and up to date. The breakfasts were outstanding with soooo many choices, the best we have encountered in any hotel. We ate at the hotel restaurant one evening and the food and service is a worthy mention.Well done Luganodante!

I've just finished my Switzerland trip with my family. My friend used to stay here before and she recommended me to stay at this hotel. I love the location and breakfast there. The staff was super nice. I wish I can come back again and will recommend my friends stay here if they want to stay in Lugano.

All the staff were very kind. The rooms are exactly as they are shown in the pictures. I have been in other 4 star hotels, but this is the first time that the staff took time to explain to me how the breakfast buffet were organised. I really appreciate that. They also gave me for free a little bottle of natural water at the time of the check out!

Excellent hotel, fantastic location,right in the city center and next to the cable car. Service was amazing too ! The bar famel serves excellent cocktails and is worth a visit. The rooms are spaceous and the buffet spread is great with many vegan and vegeterian options.

Just a few steps away from the funicluar which departs every few minutes from the train station. This hotel is a favorite of ours for the great service, friendly staff and wonderful breakfast. The rooms are very confortable and clean but pretty small. We knew this going into making our reservations for 2 double plus rooms; otherwise, we would have been very suprised. The location of the hotel makes visiting the lake and surrounding areas very easy. We enjoyed a day boating around and visiting the Chapel in Morcote. Be sure to get the Ticeno Card (which can be obtained at the hotel) for added savings; the card is free.
