The lady who was sitting at reception could not speak English, hence it was pretty difficult to agree about our request. The single rooms are very small. You feel uncomfortable in there. Because of this feeling, I changed my single room with double one. So I paid more. No breakfast. No service. It is the place only to sleep, if...

Not an hotel as such the Empedocle was one of these no frills, minimum staff look after yourself sort of places. Room was stark, though with interesting ceiling paintings. Breakfast was low budget and very DIY. Added nothing to our trip, other than a place to stay in Messina.

This could be considered circumstantial however the first room we were presented with had electrical problems. The air conditioning and lights would not stay on simultaneously.

It is worth making the short journey slightly uphill from the centre of town, especially the bustle of nearby Piazza Carducci, to relish the serene charm of this exquisite, simiple gem of a hotel. I got a superb single room on the sous-sol floor, on its own, but conveniently adjacent to the excellent lounge (including computer terminals), where a substantial...
