Really nice, modern facilities. A comfortable bed, spotless amenities and no noise on the night we stayed. Breakfast was fresh, with a varied selection, to accomodate individual tastes. The staff were really friendly & helpful. The location is close to the ferry terminal. Our only issue was the air conditioning was not operational. In both of the rooms we had.

Used this visit as accommodation as a base for a day trip to Lipari because of the uncertainty associated with possible adverse weather issues with the Ferry trip. Town could not justify to be considered a tourist destination in its own right but is set up to capitalise on its position as the gateway to the Aeolian Islands. Venue says... More

12 euros for a gin and tonic with no ice or lemon. Are they joking? We were a party of seven staying for one night. The staff seemed to resent us and made us feel very uncomfortable. the rooms are well fitted out but mine looked out over some sort of ventilation shaft or inner courtyard. My window was feet...

We stayed overnight in this excellently run hotel. It looks fresh renewed; the personnel was very friendly; the rooms clean. The hotel is perfectly located to go to a trip to the nearby islands. The breakfast buffet is good for Italian circumstances. The other good side of the hotel is that we were able to use the valet parking service,... More

I stayed at this hotel 2 times in a row, always just one night before catching the boat to Lipari. The rooms are perfect: clean, spacious and quiet. Also the WiFi works as it should. The staff is great as well: kind and helpful. The only thing the hotel misses is a 'soul'. When I'm in Sicily I prefer a... More

Nice hotel, very modern with heated towels and spacious room. I had my doubts as we drove in, but as soon as we entered the lobby, my doubts vanished. The staff was very accommodating, the desk clerk spoke good English, the restaurant was satisfactory, with limited choices. We both had a pasta dish which was good. Very clean, nice elevator....

Although the location is not great, just in front of Milazzo port, this hotel was an absolute gem. The room was huge and the bathroom too. Beds very comfortable and breakfast very varied and delicious. we got a nice tip for a restaurant as well and, all in all, the service was great.

The hotel is modern and conveniently situated for the ferries to the Aeolian Islands. Unfortunately the modernity is not always convenient, eg the strange joystick which controls the water in the bathroom basin. The shower lacks any sort of door. Some bedrooms overlook an internal air well, others a decrepit back street and others the noisy front street. But it... More
