Eva F wrote a review Apr 1
New York City, New York85 contributions44 helpful votes
We loved Lugano and our stay at LuganoDante (family of four). The room was clean, well arranged, modern; the beds (even the kids' sofabed) very comfortable - we all had a great sleep. The bathroom design and functionality were great, with the slippers and fluffy bathrobes and separate room for the toilet. The staff were amazing - we had trouble finding the private parking and one of the staff came out in the pouring rain to find and direct us. The front desk were very helpful and accommodating as well. The breakfast was delicious - such a large selection of fruits, muesli, cheeses, coldcuts, eggs, breads, and then the special order items. It was a great stay and we will definitely return!

Wonderful hotel, close to the train station and close to everything else in town. Breakfast was great as was the mixology bar. Staff were incredibly friendly and helped us solve a travel disruption due to unexpected illness we suffered. Highly recommended!

Wonderful hotel in a great location. It tool less than 5 minutes from the train station to the tram to the hotel. Hospitality is impeccable and friendly, especially the crew in the dining room. Quite a spread for breakfast, the best I've ever seen. Bed and pillows made for great sleeping. Will certainly return in the future if our travels bring us back to Lugano.

The room size was quite small but it’s not an issue. The room was super clean. Breakfast was great quality and I plan to stay again with my husband. The location was very convenient from the train station. It took me about 5 minutes for walking from train station to the hotel.
