The Villa Sassa is gorgeous and peacefully located about a kilometre from Lago Lugano. The room is huge, immaculate and marble-riffic. The hotel also has a glorious, flower-covered terrace with a view of the lake and a beautiful outdoor infinity pool, plus indoor pool and spa. Loved it, highly, highly recommend!!

We had a very pleasant dinner at their restaurant, on the terrace, with stunning wieuv over the city and the lake. Meal was really good, and nicely served. Their spa is well known, but we didn't try it. Something to think about, next time!

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... 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.... More

Room was huge, but air condition doesn't cool the bedroom. Water doesn't drain well from the shower. They still use a real key! Don't lose it! Great restaurants on property for breakfast and dinner. Spectacular morning and evening views. Pool was also nice.

This hotel is good enough but suffers from being an exhausting climb from Piazza Riforrma, where you want to be in this lovely town of Lugano. From the restaurant you get a lovely view of the town and lake. The food is good but the careless attitude of some of the waiters is a put off. Rather than stand 6... More
