“Nice view, friendly, only with a 50% discount though”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2011

We spent new years eve with our 6 month old baby and rented a suite with a 50% discount. Was great for a family of three (and our pet dog). Decoration a bit antiquated but clean large living room, adequate bedroom and great bathroom. They offered to charge us 100CHF a day to put a microwave in teh kitchen of the suite to heat up baby bottles!!! and i cannot remember how much they wanted to charge us for using the kitchen in the suite, a silly amount. Spa definately worth a visit, great pool and gym and had a great massage with a therapist from greece. Room service was good and not too expensive. Would have never paid the full price though. Breakfast so so, but nice and fresh. In the sumer must be even nicer with the pool

The hotel sits on a hill right outside of this fabulous town giving it a spectacular view. The room was large and beautifully appointed, the grounds impeccable and there was a spa that looked terrific though our schedule didn't allow time to take advantage of it.

Hotel very good, sorry that I take the bed was separated. I think that's just asking to put a double bed.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2010

This nice hotel is 4 bus stations away from the Lugano train station, uphill in a residential area. There are different buildings. The reception was nice, and I was upgraded to a Junior suite with view on the reception building and the driveway.
Large suite with comfy bed, balcony, modern and large bathroom, kitchenette. I was a bit concerned about a good night sleep but I slept well. The furnishers were worn already.
I enjoyed the breakfast on the restaurant’s terrace with beautiful view on the lake and the city centre of Lugano. Large buffet but Swiss style. Its fitness center is large and modern. My steep walk down to the city centre of Lugano lasted approx. 15mins., bring good shoes.
It was a pleasant but short stay, I’d come back.

Till this moment I thought that Lugano is very uninteresting place to go. I came here for business trip but I stayed in Villa Sassa not for 1st time.

The hotel service is excellent. The buffet breakfast is in full range of offer with showcooking. Always the best quality food. Also the restaurant serves very good and is wellknown in Lugano.
I always have the appartment room with 2 bedrooms, salon, kitchen and separate bath & toilet.
Many people just came here for relax because of 2 polls ( interior and outdoor), excellent SPA & gym.

I very recomend to stay in this hottel.

I was there several times. i really liked it. The food, spa, service and etc were all great. the hotel has a great location with fantastic view of the city Lugano and also Lake lugano. It close to train station (15 mins walking).

I recommend the GYM but spa could be improved. They guy didn't seem professional.
