Fodor's Review

Set on a hill overlooking Lugano, Villa Sassa's lake and mountain views are so pretty you might find it hard to leave the hotel to make the trek into town. Rooms are bright and clean, and each unit has a balcony. The hotel has a more casual atmosphere than its sister property, Villa Principe Leopoldo and Residence, and attracts more families. The state-of-the-art wellness center is a popular workout hub for local and visiting athletes. The hotel is a 10-minute walk downhill to town, or you can skip the hill and take the funicular for 1.10 SF.
