We spent the last week in the Dante and loved it. The staff was incredibly friendly and welcoming and the service was immaculate. If you want to spend some relaxing and enjoyable days in the middle of Lugano, this is the place to go.
You can customize your room, I'm especially fond of the pillow choice since most hotels only offer those horrible fluffy things I can't sleep well on - I'm sure you'll find something that fits you. The minibar is free and filled up regularly.
The choices at breakfast leave everyone satisfied I believe (fresh fruit, yoghurt, a huge selection of bread, sweet and salty bits - whatever you like) and don't be afraid to ask for an espresso, they will be glad to help you.
Not the cheapest hotel of course but worth ever bit we spent. Especially the staff, be it the front of house, the chambermaids or the maintenance workers made the stay a lovely experience!
They were doing some maintenance work in the hotel while we were there and managed to have it organised in a way such that it didn't bother us at all, no hour long drilling noises etc. I don't know how they did it, but it was astounding how little you can notice a construction site!
