We spent a long week-end at Villa Sassa and overall enjoyed it very much.
Check in was very friendly and efficient.
We booked a standard-room but upon arrival were told thea we would be upgraded to a Royal Suite. Sounded good. What they call Royal Suite could also be called appartment. We had a badroom, livingroom, kitchen and bathroom. The room also had a terrace with sunchairs and a private garden right next to the pool. We really liked that. The room was not exclusively furnished. It seemed more like Ikea style, so nothing fancy but definately ok. The bathroom had a decent size, a tub and a shower, very high water-pressure.
The only think I have to complain about is the bed. It is indeed very hard and it was small for two tall people. So either you would wake up when your partner tried to turn around or because your back was aching. Did not sleep good and needed a bit of time every morning to get my bones back into place.
Breakfast was ok. Decent choice, everything fresh. They were just not good at preparing egg dishes like omlettes, scrambled eggs etc. We always had to look for the lady who was preparing the eggs, sometimes that took a while or she had some omlettes prepared already which were cold and looked not nice anymore. when asking her for a freshly made one then she seemed not amused.
The terrace where you can have breakfast overlooking the lake was beautiful, very enjoyable to sit there.
The hotel is about 10 min walking distance from the city center. We found the shortest way to get down was to take a number of stairs which was no problem for us but might be for others.
