Hotels in Lugano do seem a bit more expensive than elsewhere, but the Villa Sassa is worth every penny (or Rappen). Check-In was very friendly and quick. We had a standard double room with a balcony looking out towards the pool. The rooms are very quiet. Despite a rather busy weekend with plenty guests, we didn't hear anything at all... More

I stayed here with my wife and three children. We had a larger apartment style residence and it was clean, spacious, had multiple balconies with views of the lake and surrounding mountains. The service was excellent (room service, the bar and restaurant staff - all terrific top class) and the hotel was very nice. It's a bit dated (like 80s... More

I have been lucky enough to stay at the Sassa multiple times when travelling for business and would highly recommend the hotel. The view is stunning, the food in the bar is fantastic and the waiters are always very friendly. The pool and gym is a great bonus when staying away from home as are the appartment style rooms -...

I went in the hotel few times to take friends and clients. Rooms are so expensive that you expect to have such a great service, view, spa and pool... It is not. Old fashioned. The structure is old. The spa... Is a normal spa. I've eaten so many times is the restaurant that I could just the chef as someone... More

Slow and clumsy service, would be ok in a roadside inn but not a 4-star hotel. The view from the balcony was beautiful though, and compensated a bit for the otherwise poor experience. Rooms are ok but don't expect anything special Fitness area looks great

It has been a long time since my wife and I had not enjoyed that level of service and quality of living in a hotel! Villa Sassa was amazing, the personel is so helpful and nice. The room had a fantastic view and the comfort was one of the best we experienced in a long time. In our opinion Villa... More

We took bus from the main train station, stops right in front just 3 stops later. Happy to receive a free upgrade to a huge 2-bedroom residence apartment on the 5th floor. Very spacious with windows facing the lake/mountains and skylights letting in a lot of light. Perhaps would be warm in summer but it was perfect in March! Was... More

Located on a small ridge above lugano this hotel is in close distance to the main train station. There is plenty of parking space and access by car is easy. Staff is very friendly and efficient. The rooms are great, lots of space, clean and very nicely furbished. Because of its location sleep quality is excellent without any noise from... More
