“Wonderful visit, free wireless Internet, amazing view!”
Reviewed 10 May 2012

Expats from Geneva arrived for a weekend visit in May. We had our teenage daughter and small dog with us. The triple room, 306, had a spectacular view, we sat out with a glass of wine for hours. The room was truly triple, with nice empty fridge which we stocked from Coop City up the street, 5 minutes. The bathroom as a very nice size, all very clean. In the room was large built in storage, two very nice recliners, table and chairs on balcony. There was an individual air conditioner in room that we didn't need. Wireless Internet worked great though once we had log in and reuse a different code. Outside our room was a simple but nice sitting area with large flat screen TV, massage chair, free ice machine. On same floor was where breakfast was served by a friendly lady that brought you coffee or tea. Breakfast was very Swiss and simple. Some cold meats, cheese, bread, hard boiled eggs, juice, milk, and cereal. The location of this hotel is what makes it. Right across from the lake in old town with restaurants within minutes and shopping. The boats for the lake across and just down a couple of minutes. If you arrive by train take the funicular down, the head at a diagonal to your right towards lake. This is not a fancy place but staff were pleasant, helpful, spoke English. Additional charge for pets.

Room Tip: I suspect your experience here will depend on room. No view would be no good. Also hotel was pretty...

Reviewed 14 September 2011

We stayed at Hotel Nassa for one night on September 03rd 2011. The hotel has agood location and a nice view of the lake if the room has that view. We were promised an internet connection: this proved to be false. Usually Swiss hotels are very correct: this was not the case with the Nassa! There were no amenities in the room: no tissues, small soaps. The cleanliness was basic. It was acceptable but so over-valued for 260 Swiss Francs a night for a double room ($ 325). This proved to be our least desirable hotel while traveling across Switzerland.

We stayed here for 2 nights.
Given the price, we were expecting something nicer. Although we had a nice balcony with a lake view, the place was poorely kept. Its a pitty because there is great potential. Our balcony was more like a terrasse, and rather than having some flowers or arranging it nicely, it was completely bare except for 2 plastic chairs.
The room was average but carpet was stained and we just hoped for more.

This hotel is not that special. I went there cos another hotel where I usually stay was closed in that period. Rooms are clean, but furniture is really out of date (I think it dates back to 1930, as the style is pretty simple and old-fashioned). There's a nice wide terrace in each room, but it is not that private as you can easily see what all the other guests are doing in their rooms. Breakfast is not that bad and staff is really helpful, kind and they speak several languages. Price is not that cheap compared to what you get.
There a bad point: there's a computer with internet connection, but you need a card to have access to it and it costs quite a lot (5 francs for 25 minutes).
A good point is that the hotel is centrally located, so you can easily reach any part of the town in a few minutes.

  • Liked — the location (it's centrally located)
  • Disliked — expensive internet connection

We spent 5 nights at this great little hotel on the lake at Lugano and loved the experience.
We booked directly with the hotel by email which worked really well and upon arrival our booking was exactly as requested.
We had a large room with a balcony with stunning views across the small square to the lake.
We would particularly recommend the boat trips on the lake and a visit to the village of Gandria is a must ! Another top trip is to Morcote, a lakeside town with 17th century arcades and steep, narrow streets leading up from the lake. There are good restaurants over the water with wonderful views and flowers everywhere.
We found the hotel staff very helpful and pleasant and the included breakfast was more than adequate. We would definately stay here if we are in Lugano again.
