We staid for a long weekend in Sassa and enjoyed every minute there! Amazing view on mountains from our room terrace , same beautiful view opens from the restaurant while having delicious breakfast. Staff was always very pleasant and helpful, room was cleaned every day. Price is quite high for this hotel but rooms are not modern.

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... 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... 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!

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.

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...

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....

Spent 4 pleasant nights here and overall very good - the only downside was that it is 10 minutes walk down to town with a bus ride back. The room was fantastic and the staff very good. Breakfast OK. Bonus parking which is very helpful in Lugano. Overall 4.5 score
