Loved this hotel. It feels luxurious but homely. Our room was small but beautifully furnished and presented. The walls are covered in material, rooms and corridors. Breakfast has a good selection and when you turn your cup over there is a little sweet with a smile on your saucer. The foyer is comfortable with lots of seating. Tea and coffee are free in the foyer and there is always cake and fruit to help yourself too as well. There are lots of free nibbles at happy hour. Would love to stay here again.

If you are traveling by train to Lugano, you cannot pick a better place to stay. Right at the base of the funicular from the train station to the lower town, you will find the Lugano Dante. When you walk in, you will find a warm and inviting atmosphere like at a Swiss mountain inn. Cozy chairs, coffee and snacks, newspapers and tourist information. A staff person gives you a warm greeting immediately and explains all of the services they offer with your reservation, including their breakfast buffet. Your room may be on the small side but it is cozy and inviting. This is not a modern hotel yet they have all modern conveniences. They seem to relish in their early 1980s decor with the gold and deep red finishings, eighties style call buttons, and lighting..... and it works! The bathrooms are fully equipped and modern and they are generous with the toiletries.
We also enjoyed the bar area in the late evenings where you can mingle with guests who might be businessmen and women, a young hipster on travel, families, and retirees. Something about this place just lets you know they are glad to have you and want you to come back.
Breakfast offerings in the breakfast room are generous and best of all, ask about the Ticino Card which allows you free public transportation through the Ticino area and up to 30 pct discounts at tourist attractions, stores and eateries! This is a great experience at a great value!

Very close to the city center, quiet small rooms with free customizable minibar, very nice staff, a great buffet breakfast included. Little trouble parking the car, i suggest booking a parking spot directly in the hotel
Definetly worth the price

Dear Diego O,

Thank you very much for having stayed at Hotel Lugano Dante. Your comment is important to us.

Here is a useful information to all users of Tripadvisor: Hotel Lugano Dante offers an underground garage for 52 cars, completely automatized, constantly watched over and naturally not accessible to strangers. Our daily Parking fee is CHF 33.- (24-hours Parking fee in Lugano city: average CHF 43.-). Cars like SUV or longer than 5.05 meters and higher than 1.87 meters cannot be parked in our automated garage because of their dimensions. In this case there is a public garage just a few meters away from our hotel. On our website you will find all the information on how to reach us.

You are a valued guest: please come back and stay with us again and again.
