We selected this hotel based on location and all the rave reviews. Well it does live up to all the hype. Extremely friendly and helpful reception with excellent English and German, a charming hotel on a small square literally right next to the funicular that takes you to and from the rail station. Absolutely brilliant for anyone arriving by train. You are there in a few minutes. Loved the added touch of candy jars and goodies by the reception that became unfortunately for my waist line quite addictive. The lobby is cheerful and we did have a small snack, served quickly and delicious. The room was cosy, and having prepared by reading many of the reviews here I did ask and was rewarded with a room on a higher floor. We had a splendid view of the old town square and beautiful surrounding buidlings. So much fun to just walk out the door and there you are in Lugano's beautiful and charming old town, just minutes from the gorgeous lakeside promenade. Lugano is beautiful and makes for a wonderful weekend getaway especially when the weather in Switzerland north of the Alps is rainly and depressing. You feel like you are in Italy but everything acutally runs on time :) Dante is definitely a go-again destination and we will be back.
