“A wonderful hotel in our favorite city in Switzerland.”
Reviewed 21 November 2010

The hotel sits on a hill right outside of this fabulous town giving it a spectacular view. The room was large and beautifully appointed, the grounds impeccable and there was a spa that looked terrific though our schedule didn't allow time to take advantage of it.

This nice hotel is 4 bus stations away from the Lugano train station, uphill in a residential area. There are different buildings. The reception was nice, and I was upgraded to a Junior suite with view on the reception building and the driveway.
Large suite with comfy bed, balcony, modern and large bathroom, kitchenette. I was a bit concerned about a good night sleep but I slept well. The furnishers were worn already.
I enjoyed the breakfast on the restaurant’s terrace with beautiful view on the lake and the city centre of Lugano. Large buffet but Swiss style. Its fitness center is large and modern. My steep walk down to the city centre of Lugano lasted approx. 15mins., bring good shoes.
It was a pleasant but short stay, I’d come back.

Till this moment I thought that Lugano is very uninteresting place to go. I came here for business trip but I stayed in Villa Sassa not for 1st time.

The hotel service is excellent. The buffet breakfast is in full range of offer with showcooking. Always the best quality food. Also the restaurant serves very good and is wellknown in Lugano.
I always have the appartment room with 2 bedrooms, salon, kitchen and separate bath & toilet.
Many people just came here for relax because of 2 polls ( interior and outdoor), excellent SPA & gym.

I very recomend to stay in this hottel.

I was there several times. i really liked it. The food, spa, service and etc were all great. the hotel has a great location with fantastic view of the city Lugano and also Lake lugano. It close to train station (15 mins walking).

I recommend the GYM but spa could be improved. They guy didn't seem professional.

Reviewed 26 June 2010

Location: Hotel a bit far from centre (10 minutes walk), but on a hill overlooking the lake and the city.

Hotel in a relatively good status, lobby and public areas are nice, corresponding to a 4-star hotel level.

Rooms: decor is OK, clean, good amenities, some rooms are large and have balcony. Nice bathroom with marble.

Food and service are OK (not great but OK).

Great Gym/Spa, with a huge choice of equippment, wieghts etc, jacuzzi, pool etc, really nice (one negative remark: it is a club open to non-residents so it can get crowded after work). Overall one of the better gyms I have seen in hotels!

Overall a good choice for business travellers and also for leisure, depending on the expectations and the rate you get. If you look for real luxury, there are better choices, but for me it is a good 4-star hotel which is well maintained - and there are not that many choices in Lugano (besides 2-3 very nice and expensive 5-star hotels). So overall can recommend this hotel.
