Perfect for relaxation, if you like to feel you're visiting a painting. The view is a must experience, and I'm sure all services are fine. Travelling with small children though, you can not take advantage of it in the same way I guess - do we'll save the fine dining and spa treatments for next time.

We stayed at one of the penthouse suites for a long weekend. We had a fantastic time. The pool, the food, the spa treatment and the spa area are fantastic. What really topped the experience though, is the staff. Every single member of staff that we came in contact with was amazing, naturally friendly, helpful and with a smile. At check out, front of house gifted my dad a bottle of wine as they have noticed that it was his birthday today - amazing gesture.

Been quite a few times and will be back again. Great staff. Great location. Great hotel. An easy walk from the train station and always such a great stay. Our son is always sad to leave. Already thinking about our next stay.

Stayed here overnight for a business trip, and have to say i was incredibly impressed. I had a full suite with a wonderful view over the pool and down to the lake. Breakfast was also good and walking distance from most things.. Very enjoyable and can imagine returning with my family.

The view is as spectacular as the kindness of the people taking care of their guests. It's a place where someone can experience relaxation. We will come back and hope that some little renovations will soon contribute to erase the word 'almost' in the title of this little review...

We spent New Year’s Eve (2021/2022) at Villa Sassa. We had a Lake View Suite which hosted 3 adults and one baby. The facilities and rooms are a bit outdated but clean and fully operationally. The was lots of space in our Suite and the lake view from our large balcony was fantastic. We had a kitchen which was equipped with a microwave to sterilize our baby bottles. Great! However the kitchen was otherwise unequipped and the hotel charges CHF 50,- per day for kitchen equipment. That’s a negative. We enjoyed our stay a lot. All staff was very helpful and friendly all the time. Room cleaning was fast, thorough and already done in the morning. The breakfast buffet offered lots of choices and left no wishes unanswered. The Spa/Gym area looked very good. Unfortunately we could not use them. Villa Sassa takes the current Covid situation very serious and asked for double vaccination and booster shot to use the facilities (we were not yet eligible for the booster). It was in summary a very nice stay and we will come back. Villa Sassa is still the number one in Lugano despite its visible age.

The hotel is very comfortable with excellent facilities. The restaurant, for dinner and breakfast, was delicious! The spa was so lovely to have after a day out exploring, but the spa staff could have been more helpful in finding what we needed.
