We live abroad but we organized our Wedding ceremony in the gardens of the Villa Sassa. We could not imagine a more beautiful day and we have really appreciated the kindness of all the staff. The rooms are perfect to welcome all the guests and the suite is just amazing. The wedding dinner was also great and all our guests... More

Our family took a 2 1/2 week trip through Europe....ending our vacation in Lugano. We arrived at Villa Sassa and were greeted immediately. Upon reading other reviews it seems our upgrade was typical for this hotel. We were traveling with three children and had booked 2 rooms as every hotel we visited in Europe required 2 rooms for 5 people... More

Stayed for one night. Booking through booking.com at short notice. Got upgraded to a corner suite. The hotel is well located near the railway station and affords great views of the lake and the mountains. Despite the central location the hotel is quiet. The layout is a bit confusing for people who stay for the first time. The hotel offers... More

The hotel was nice; good value for the money. The mountain views were spectacular. The included morning breakfast was average. One thing made this hotel absolutely exceptional: a masseuse named Serena at the spa. What magical fingers she had!!! One of the best massages I've ever had in my life!!! She was truly above and beyond...utterly magnificent. We even changed... More

In a 4 star hotel I expect at least real flowers as decoration or is it a new trend? Staff very arrogant and unprofessional. Prices very high. SPA and wellness just dirty and this with rates up to 500 Fr. Do not recommend.

Excellent and very complete residence. Great services and personnel. You will have fantastic and relaxing place with gorgeous views, friendly service, excellent bar and restaurant. All the sense of being Swiss and the joy of being treated like at home. No one word can be argued against the place and the people and their service and cordiality ty

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
