“Just GREAT”
Reviewed November 28, 2012 via mobile

I been at the hotel for just 1 night, and was one of the best hotels i've ever been. Service is excellent and the location and services are just great. Free apetizer with drink, free mini bar, exellent wellcome, beds are extremly comfortable. Going to lugano? Get this hotel. The only thing is the price, not cheap but no miney waste at all.

This was my first visit to Lugano and I couldn't have found a better hotel. My trip was to visit my daughter at Franklin College. Dante Hotel's close proximity to the Funi made the trip up to campus much easier for a flat-lander like myself.

The staff was exceptional. The service impeccable. The breakfast fabulous. The room very clean, quiet, and comfortable. I have no doubt I will be staying at the hotel again and again over the next 4 years.

Room Tip: I had a single room. Small in comparison to hotel rooms in the US but very comfortable.

This was my second stay at the Dante Hotel. This hotel really deserves all the compliments and its high rating.
It enjoys a superb location at the old city, just steps away from the fashionable NASA Street. It has an ultra-modern garage and I enjoyed looking at the sophisticated car elevator which parked the vehicles automatically.
Rooms are a bit small, but modern and clean. I loved the free non-alcoholic drinks at the minibar.
The reception staff is great: extremely helpful and knowledgeable.
What can I say about the Breakfast buffet that hasn't been already said? It is amazingly rich, and if you still feel hungry - you can have chocolates, other candies and pastries, tea and coffee all day long at the lobby, free of charge.
The Dante provides free Wi-Fi plus a few computers at the lobby for its guests.
The hotel doesn't have a gym of its own but guest get a complimentary entrance to a fantastic gym, just a few minutes' walk from the hotel.
I am sure that I'll stay at the Dante many more times in the future.

Room Tip: The more you pay - the better room you'll get.

200 characters are too much for describing the experience at this hotel. There are not words to tell you enough about Dante. May be few ones, like: wonderfull, fantastic, excellent, luxurious, unbelievable, incredible.

Wonderful hotel, friendly and courteous staff with reception staff outstanding. Not to belittle the others, but Antonia went out of her way to help and provide information about Lugano. Ideally situated for old town and lake-side promanade. Single room was quite small but adequate. Breakfast buffet was stunning!

Room Tip: Get a double room to have some "walk around" space.

This is a 5 star hotel services. I enjoyed so much my staying at this hotel. You can feel the friendly environment the minute you enter the hotel. The staff is friendly, helpful, efficient, knowledgeable and willing to go beyond and above to assist their guests. My kids are young they had small corner at the lobby which they enjoy tremendously. The location is in the center of Lugano 5 minutes walking to the Lake. Once you get your room key you will enter a world of luxury and comfort. This is a Hotel that looks over the tiniest details. Rooms are spacious and super clean. The breakfast is amazingly delicious and variable. I would definitely choose to stay there again and recommend this hotel to all my friends. Thank you all for making our stay at the hotel worth every penny.

Room Tip: If you have family with kids reserve the interconnected room 210&211 they are spacious and comfy
