I often come to Lugano for business and often stay at Villa Sassa because it was a great gym and spacious rooms.
- hardwood floor
- most rooms are apartment style instead of standard single-room hotel
- awesome gym with saunas
- unfriendly front desk staff (they often act like they are doing you a huge favor instead of treating you like a valued customer)
- food is so-so (better food at other hotels or restaurants)

We recently spend one night at Villa Principe Leopoldo in Lugano. Beautiful neighborhood setting with great views of the lake. Our room was in the "residences", which is across the street from the main hotel building, but that is really not an inconvenience at all. I've stayed at hotels where the room is MUCH farther away than in this situation. Rooms are spacious and very nice. Loved having our own outdoor patio. It felt much to me like a Beverly Hills or Bel Air setting.
The staff was great and this was an excellent location right on the main piazza but set back a bit so the rooms were quiet. The staff was very friendly and everyone went out of their way. The rooms are simple but clean and attractive. TV with cable and perfectly fine bathroom. A great breakfast was included. I would stay here again and again.

"Cannot imagine a better spot in Ascona! WIL go back. Excellent price for location"
Cannot find a single negative aspect here. Great location on the waterfront that is car free, view on the lake is exceptional. Adjoining restaurant is excellent. It may still be Swiss but you are in Italy! You must walk this small town to realy see it. Cars are useless here. We stayed two days in early November 2011 and even if there was rain, we enjoyed every second. Staff speak at least four languages and has class and charm that are not made up! We were elated!
The hotel was very charming, clean and the room was A+. The staff was top notch. I loved the breakfast buffet. So many wonderful things to select and the presentation was beautiful. The hotel is very close to many stores, the lake and museums. I will certainly stay here again and highly recommend it.
