We returned to the Lugano-Dante after a break of 5 years and found the same excellent standards of quality and care from the staff. We asked for a quiet room and were delighted with its situation, overlooking a central courtyard with views to the cathedral, appointment and cleanliness. We were even invited to choose some of the room facilities, including... More

We booked online for 4 single beds And we received a double and a sofa bed hence no where to sit and relax as sofa bed was already pulled out and made up. Buffet breakfast was good Location was good Only gripe is that when you pay top dollar you expect what you booked.

I researched many options from hotels to AirBnb for a 3 night stay in Lugano with 3 adults (2 bedrooms needed). Would certainly return to the hotel again and highly recommend it. The hotel is ideally located in the center of downtown. 3-5 minute walk to the water and boats you can catch to other cities on the Lake, a... More

Back we came, en-route from the Alps to Italian coast. Great location, genuinely friendly reception, nice room, perfect bathroom with super shower and a breakfast to keep me happy for a good 75 minutes. Well, I had to get my money's worth ! Will we go back - oh yes. Started saving my £2 coins into the holiday jar already............

Fontana-GM, Direttore generale at Lugano Dante Center Swiss Quality Hotel, responded to this review

Dear CornishJanner, Thank you very much for staying at Hotel Lugano Dante and for sharing with the Tripadvisor community your beautiful review. It is fair to say that due to the financial turbulence of the last years, Switzerland has become more expensive. Adding to this phenomenon, while elaborating a „value comparison“ with other hotels and destinations, one should always take... More

Everything is excellent about this hotel, from location, rooms, service, staff, to whatever you may think of but never had in another hotel. The Breakfast is kind of a brunch and you kind find anything you may think of.

I was very pleased with the hotel, the staff, the breakfast, pretty much everything. There was an error in the reservation, and the staff was great about fixing it. The room was well maintained with little extras that I appreciated (robe, slippers, free mini-bar). Breakfast was a huge buffet with eggs, home made baked goods, fresh fruit, cereal, ... The...

We stayed there for three days it was a very good experience. The service was excellent. Very nice room and good breakfast. The location is in the center of the town, only a few minutes walk from the lake.
