We spent a wonderful night in the Villa Sassa Hotel. The room was great, the view incredible and the staff very friendly. The wellness section was perfect to relax. There are a couple of nice restaurants round and the Lake is not far as well. The breakfast was delicious and had everything we desired. Would love to come back and spend some more time in this cosy Hotel.

The hotel is literally like taken from the 1980s and preserved until today..the decor is tired and even the music in the background is not happening.. What a surprise in the morning when you find that in a junior suite there is not even a coffee machine... Talking about 4 stars... The temp in the rooms is almost unbearable and the whole concept does not really work.. On the other hand there are positives...!

For us its important to be welcome when travelling with our dog and this is what Villa Sassa delivered. From the warm welcome to the drinking bowl of water and pet sofa for our dog when we got to our room. We felt really comfortable and very welcome and our dog was treated like a king. The hotel facilities are excellent and made our stay very pleasant. We used the gym/pool facilities and they were exactly like a modern gym with the latest equipment.

A great hotel with great staff. Very spacious rooms and lots of Italian influence. The breakfast was all you would expect from a luxury hotel and the views are stunning. I did not get time to check out the spa but the pool and jacuzzi looked very inviting.

We stayed for one weekend which was supposed to be a spa weekend combined with Family weekend. Everything was as expected. Nice room, good food, and friendly staff. Except one thing. I booked a one hour massage in the spa. Unfortunately they dont have any control of the employees there. After changing and waiting time, the girl at the spa reception told me that the one who should give me a massage, didnt look correctly at her time Schedule an therefore I couldnt get what I really had been looki...

Stayed for over 3 weeks in december 2015, this is an excellent property next to the views of lake lugano and mountains across. Check in was smooth and the staff was courteous. WIFI is good, stayed in an apartment on the garden side which opens on the lake view and the swimming pool. Kitchen has everything required for..

Villa Sassa is a big property located outside the city centre with a magnific view of the lake. Staff is polite and efficient and mostly friendly. Our room (more an appartment than a room) was very spacious, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large living room and a small kitchen. Nice and clean but with no decoration. All white and simple. Sleep quality is very good with a nice bed, silence and darkness. Breakfast is good, but not excellent. We stayed there for 5 nights in July. The hotel was full... Read more

I seldom give an excellent rating. While this is a four star hotel, you enjoy the nice stuff in everything. First, you can have a panoramic view of Lugano in most of the public areas and in some rooms too. How nice it can be to swim with an unobstructed view of Lake Lugano and the city. The same holds true at the breakfast restaurant with a big terrace. I swam under a clear sky with a full moon! What about a glass of champagne with high quality cold cut at your own terrace!

We loved everything about this hotel but a major problem is the lack of air conditioning, it was very hot during our stay and we travelled with two small children and nobody slept well. The room was very big, a family apartment with several bedrooms and a kitchen but the only AC-unit was in the living room and was not enough. Besides that we enjoyed our stay, we had a lovely view over the infinity pool and the room was spacious. The staff was great, very friendly and helpful and one even spoke S... Read more

Have had a wonderful stay in the Villa Sassa. Great place, amenities and staff - super spa with great outdoor pool, indoor pool, massage and gym. Breakfasts have been awesome and incredible views of Lake Lugano. A ten minute bus ride from the city center but that has been a blessing as in a quiet and tranquil suburb. Will return!

This is a beautiful hotel with fabulous facilities in the spa area. There is a large, well equipped gym, indoor and outdoor pools, a lovely sauna and steam room. They have an exercise studio too with a range of classes. Management kindly upgraded us to a suite of rooms overlooking the lake as we were there for several nights and they had the space available. Some suites even have a private garden area. The view down to the lake is lovely and you are surrounded by lush green mountains. The infini... Read more

We have a lovely suite overlooking the pool and can see lake Lugano from our lovely balcony where we are very much enjoying coffee in the mornings before breakfast. We have also been to the spa and the gym. Both are terrific! The spa is pricey but everything is in Switzerland and hey, you are on vacation!! The staff is great too, but the reason to stay here is the view. This hotel is above the lake and has amazing views that you would not get if you stay in a hotel on the lake itself. Lugano is ...

We stayed here with our children (ages 13, 10, 8) in a 2 bedroom apartment with Lake Views. The kids really enjoyed the pool. There are nice views from the pool area of the town and Lake Lugano. The gym was very expansive as well. It is about a 10 - 15 minute walk into town down some steep steps or switchbacks. We didn't mind because the location was worth the views. When we arrived we were picked up by the complimentary shuttle at the train station. I would recommend booking the shuttle w... Read more

We spent a week in a junior suite. Plenty of space, balcony to enjoy view, air con, bedroom had a choice of comfort pillows, lovely bathroom (didn't think their products were good for the quality of the hotel). Kitchen but no utensils/ crockery if you wanted to eat in. Well equipped gym. We had a couples massage which was relaxing. Great selection for breakfast. Very attentive staff. Nice walk into the city and easy bus ride home if you were tired.

Stayed here for my birthday and absolutely loved it! There is a free little minibus shuttle to the station which is great. Beautiful big hotel that never felt busy. Lovely indoor pool and jacuzzi and the outdoor pool was my favourite place in the hotel. Swimming whilst looking out on the amazing views over the mountains and lake lugano. Restaurant isn't cheap but they have lots of little free extras which made it special and again spectacular views.

I have stayed in Villa Sassa earlier and this time didn't disappoint me either! Beautifully located above the Lugano center with the view to the lake.

A top Swiss quality hotel. Rooms are not modern but very comfortable and you will feel like home. The view is fantastic. The restaurant view is amazing, breakfast is just unforgettable, you may watch the sun rising behind the mountains with a great view to the lake. Don't miss the spa and the gym, all equipment is top. Sauna is perfect. Its a good walk 10 minutes downhill walk to the city downtown but nevertheless a very nice walk.
