Villa Sassa Hotel, Residence & Spa
Ranked #9 of 45 Hotels in Lugano
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 June 2012

I have stayed at Villa Sassa for a number of times already while on business in Lugano. The rooms I stayed in are pretty spacious and pretty quiet, however, if you get a room that faces the street and not the hotel grounds you may get distracted by noise.
The beds are comfortable, the gym, pool, and other fitness facilities are amazing.
The breakfast is simply very-very good, and the views from the dining room are breathtaking.
And if you need to get to Lugano downtown - it's just 10 minutes walk through the lower parking lot of the hotel.
The noise and a bit outdated bathrooms are the main reasons why I did not give it five stars.

During business trips I often stayed in this hotel and always liked it. It can esily happen that you get an appartment instead of a room, so you get a 2 room flat for the price of a hotel room - but no guarantee of course. The SPA inside the hotel is a fitness club open for members and guests of the hotel, so for a hotel the SPA is excellent incl indoor pool, outdoor pool, sauna, steam bath, whirlpool and a good fitness centre. The restaurant is also really excellent, but pretty expensive. A cheap alternative is a pizza place nearby (ABC).

I stayed in Villa Sassa last weekend and I was really impressed by the property.
Rooms are very nice, like a good 4*, but the facilities around are really unique for an hotel of such category.
My accomodation had a large terrace with an amasing view on Lugano and the lake, the hotel is built with very expensive materials, merble is everywhere and service is very attentive in the rooms as well as in public areas. All the staff was also very friendly and they often stopped paying with my 2 yrs old daughter!

What really impressed me is that the hotel has great facilities for a 4*: one of the best SPA I have seen in a 4*, large indoor and outdoor pools, the best gym I have ever seen in an hotel, the only nursery I have seen in an otel accepting the kids from 1 year (not from 3 as usual). Also tis service is complemenary.

I did not mind about the distance from the lake, the hotel is at walking distance from the centre and from the railway station, but other properties on the lake do not offer such a view, such a garden and so many facilities!

Finally, in my opinion this hotel fits for everybody: couples looking for a romantik oasis of peace, families with kids, friends, businessmen looking comfort after a day of work.

Next time I will go to Lugano I will defenitely stop in this property!

PS I forgot to say about the breakfast, I was on diet and I had a wide range of healthy food in my choice, my husband and my daughter, not on diet, really enjoyed the"unhealty" part of the buffet, they told me that the home made cakes were delicious!

The first time we visited Lugano, we stayed at a hotel right on the lake. We enjoyed it then as we watched the August 1 fireworks. This time, Villa Sassa became our Lugano destination as family connected us with Roland Henkel, the Director of the hotel. The hotel was a hit with the family that we decided to stay another night. Our grand daughter was delighted to see that in their huge family room, she has her own separate bedroom. Our rooms are very spacious with lots of storage for long stay, a kitchen, a living room, a lounge and just outside is the swimming pool. The decor, though for others was a bit outdated, made us recall our own versions of the 90's. It simply added to our enjoyment.

On our first evening, we went for drinks in the restaurant-bar and enjoyed the spectacular view of Lugano which we failed to see last time not having stayed at a higher location. For dinner, we walked to town and it was easy given the age range of our family present at 13-69. We enjoyed breakfast at the restaurant overlooking Lugano. Being a spa, breakfast has its good selection of healthy options. The full blooms of the begonias in the garden added to the beauty of the place.

Younger members of the family really enjoyed the pool. Next time, we plan to stay a bit longer and try some of the offers at the Spa.

What we notice is that the staff quietly but effectively run the hotel and gave us a very enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: If you have children, go for the corner rooms as they have separate bedrooms for kids.

I stayed in a very spacious room with two double bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen and a spacious living-room with a dining table. Very very clean hotel. Spacious bathroom and bath tube. There was a shower as well. I had a view to the lake and the surrounding mountains, it was great. Large balcony for summer nights, this place is ideal for couples. The staff was very polite and friendly. The breakfast room was wonderful, with large windows that let the morning light in, providing a great view to the magic scenery.

Room Tip: Select a room with view at the lake.
