Lugano Dante Center Swiss Quality Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I recently returned from a business trip to Switzerland. I was in Geneva, Zurich and Lugano. I stayed at the Mandarin Oriental in Geneva, the Marriott in Zurich and Lugano Dante Center in Lugano. The latter was by far the best experience. The attention to detail and guest comfort is unparalleled. I had business meetings and dinners to get to, and the front desk staff helped me with taxis, calculating distance and time. Everything ran smoothly and they even prepared a breakfast box for me to take the airport as I was leaving so early. I look forward to my next visit.

Stayed for 2 nights from Oct 29. The rooms were nice & comfortable. The staff are very nice, they are very helpful and guide us in all queries regarding the sightseeings, local dining etc... The hotel is at the centre of the town, if you're traveling by train, you just need to take the cable car which is right at the downstairs of the railway platform. Overall it's a nice property to stay.

Rooms on 1st floor were all refurbished. Great hospitality and attention to details. I like the opportunity offered to personalize my room online, prior to arrival (room temperature, what kind of non alcoolic beverages to find in the fridge - they are for free - nordic vs. traditional bedding - type of cushion). The great plus: an extensive and attractive breakfast buffet.

Charming and warming welcome, you feel like at home. Steady staff remembering you at your next visit which is always nice. New refurbished rooms (most of them), great breakfast buffet with longer hours. Very clean.

I stayed for 2 nights in a single room. Room was small as expected, but very quiet and comfortable. Service was excellent and the breakfast was outstanding. Location is perfect. Right at The bottom of the funicular from the train station ind right in the middle of town. I highly recommend.

Very much enjoyed stay - perfect balance of modern and traditional European service and comforts. Wonderful showers- hot and great pressure. Caters well for all ages and welcomes children and provides spaces for them to occupy themselves. Excellent breakfast. Close to town but so handy to transport - and easy to access station with bags.

Lovely location close to the town funicular and main shopping area with many restaurants and bars. The hotel staff are very welcoming and helpful, making for a fun stay. Helped by the early evening snacks and drinks in the bar, of course!

Super Location. Coming from the railway station, situated at the other end of the cable car station. In the center of the old town. Department stores nearby. Not far from the lake of Lugano. Many Restaurants, Cafés, Bars nearby. Friendly staff.

Excellent located hotel in the heart of Lugano. Walk out the door and you are in the center of the city activities. Staff are dedicated to service and comfort. Wonderful breakfast including rich hot chocolate.

Only stayed one night in a relatively small room - however, reasonable price & met my needs. Appreciated the excellent location and ease of getting to/from the train station & easily walkable to the Lake. Included breakfast had plenty of options. Enjoyed the coffee service in the lobby, included minibar & various snacks available in the lobby. The front desk staff was very helpful.
