We stayed at the Dante for one night. The location is perfect for sight seeing, the staff were very friendly and helpful, but the best part was the fact there were a kettle and tea and coffee in our room, which is most unusual for Swiss hotels. The room was on the small side, but adequate and breakfast was lovely.

The hotel is very good, generous staff with a nice smile and talking. Rooms are clean but too small, TV, AC, Safe are available in the room. The bathroom also is clean and good with all facilities, but too small also. The breakfast they offer is very good, and when I left, I liked the chocolate they gave us on... More

We stayed here for three nights whilst visiting Lugano and the Hotel is ideally situated with excellent staff.

One of my favourite hotels in the world is located in Lugano. Fortunately to for me, that hotel was fully booked – which forced me to look for an alternative. Hence, I selected the Lugano Dante Center as a result of reading the extensive praise heaped by other reviewers on this little gem. It is located on a piazza in... More
