    The room was small but well appointed and very comfortable - quiet with a view of the gardens. The bathroom was wonderful - new, lots of hot water with the towels heated on a towel warmer each morning. The breakfast was excellent with extensive choice. Location at the base of the funicular (accessible directly from the train station) was very convenient. Would definately stay again.

    Fabulous

    Good clean comfortable rooms,rooms are a little small and lack coffee making facilities. Coffee is available in the lobby. Staff are very polite and helpful and breakfast choice is excellent. Location is perfect for touring the city and for arrivals by train. We have stayed here for the last four visits to Lugano and will probably return.

    Only one English speaking channel on the TV (CNN). I do not like the payment conditions. You can pay a little less for reserving a room but there is no refund for changes or cancellations .....cancellation of airline flights maybe could cause problems for some travellers???

    Superb

    The staff was very helpful, spoke several languages, was helpful in all areas requested. They were aware of local sights to see, assisted in booking several. They ALWAY asked if we needed anything else. The posted weather forecast by the elevator was helpful as the local television did not have language friendly weather forecasts/updates.The Breakfast was outstanding, it met every culinary taste and dietary need.

    The bed was VERY hard, it took a couple of nights adjusting (we spent seven consecutive nights). The airport shuttle did not run but twice on sunday and we were relegated to a 37 CHF taxi ride to the airport, the front desk staff estimated it to be 25 CHF.

    location is very close to Lugano station, hotel staff have a lot of hospitality, cafe service in lobby every time, hotel size is comfortable etc. Especially, hotel staff gave me quick response to my ask before starting travel frequently. I'll select this hotel again exactly.

    Only fault is no lake view.

    I really appreciate the quality of the service of the hotel, they send you your personal page before you arrive to know what are your personal selections for the room and the bed, and everything. When you leave, they send you a mail saying good bye. I think the hotel has a great center location, but besides that the best is not the building but the details they have in all the service. Great hotel

    The rooms are quite small (we had the executive doble) and I thought the rooms were bigger, but I understand this hotel is in the old city of Lugano and the buildings there are like that.

    We chose this hotel because of it's excellent reviews and location. My husband and I experienced an extraordinary stay in this beautifully appointed hotel. Our stay was much better than we expected. Our room was nicely appointed, the bed extremely comfortable, and it had a great bathroom furnished with needed toiletries. A very pleasant surprise was free coffee, tea, pastries, and assorted candies located throughout the spacious lobby area, continually. There were delicious appetizers in the bar area; free internet was also a plus and easy to access. The breakfast was exceptional! Advertised as being famous for its breakfast, it exceeded our expectations. The reception staff was extremely welcoming, friendly, and helpful. We were greeted with a "Happy Anniversary" greeting and gift in our room, as we were celebrating our Anniversary with a trip through several European countries. Other staff members were also friendly. Of all our hotel stays throughout our 17 day trip, we found this hotel to be the best! We highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling through Switzerland and would definitely stay here again.

    Fabulous

    Dante Hotel is a tiny, nice hotel in downtown Lugano. Just in front of the "funicolare" that brings you up to the train station for Fr 1.10, and walking distance from restaurants and the beautiful lake promenade. The staff is kind and effective, and the breakfast is good. Good value: squeezed orange juice for free (usually you need to pay for it), wifi internet connection for free, kettle and good choice of tea bags in the room, non-alcoholic drinks for free in room fridge.

    My room was too small. It was an executive single room. I heard the standard single room is even smaller. I believe the room rate is quite expensive, although Lugano is expensive in general.
