I've stayed at the hotel for 4 nights.
The hotel is located in the best possible spot in Stromboli and eveything is at reach, which is essential since you're gonna have to do some walking on the island!
The staff at the hotel is very professional, friendly and will make you feel well looked after.
Some equipment could do with some update perhaps, but it all ends up being quite charming.
Still considered the best hotel on the island and rightfully so,

Stromboli was a perfect get away for Ferragosto.

Taxi service from the port was prompt. Staff was friendly and provided great service and information. Breakfast selection was small but adequate. Beautiful view of the sea. The grounds and gardens were perfect. Room was ready immediately and clean. Free WiFi Internet provided with a code for 8hrs at a time but it was slow and weak signal strength, however good enough for vacation Facebook. The pool was salt water and relaxing, no towels provided. The gym was outdoors and old with only a few machines and few free weights. No treadmill but you don't need one as you can go running on the island.

A few negatives. Unfortunately the island gets a water delivery from a tanker ship which drops anchor right out front of the hotel. Noisey, smells of exhaust when the winds blows onto the beach and it detracts from the view. Also the company restaurant and nightclub is noisey late at night.

Black Beach was right out front. Beautiful black sand! Bring beach shoes and a towel. You need to reserve a day in advance if you want a beach bed and umbrella. Not part of the hotel, but the service was poor and the food selection was lacking and pricey for the quality. Would recommend going into town for lunch or to a restaurant instead of the beach sandwich.

Would recommend and return here.

So our trip had started badly as we had come here after an incident at another hotel and the reception staff were just what we needed - lovely and calm and friendly. Room was nice enough - quite minimal but fridge, safe, etc. Excellent aircon for Italy. Beds are low and quite hard but that was OK for us. Bathroom small but fine. Small terrace with beautiful views.
Reception were very helpful with directions, reservations, wifi, etc.
We went to the volcano in the evening and on return hoped to try out the hotels bar (just across the street) but unfortunately it was closed for a private function, that the staff hadn't mentioned when we had asked about it was a minor disappointment.
Breakfast was served on the terrace and was fine - it's important to remember everything has to be brought from the mainland. They certainly tried their best with what they had.
As we were only here 1 night we didn't have time to try out the pool.
One note of caution there are a lot of stairs.

One of the oldest hotels on Stromboli it is in a superb location overlooking the sea front and out to Strombolicchio. There are several things that stood out for us about it.
The welcome from the front desk and indeed all the staff was exceptionally warm. The dining area which is open to the sea front is very charming and a lovely place to while away a meal. The food was also very good, home made pasta with really tasty sauces, beautifully cooked vegetable dishes and a varied fish menu.
It's opposite a black beach of volcanic sand and pebbles which is a pleasant place to go swimming and just along the sea front they also have a cool cocktail bar which is a nice place for a pre-dinner drink. Our only slightly negative observation is that our room, whilst clean and well maintained, was plain rather than charming. But it's a minor point overall and we really enjoyed our stay.

We booked for a one night stay so we were well positioned for our trek up the volcano. The team here could not have been more helpful in organising our visit and answering our questions. Our front of house room right above the reception had a large terrace overlooking the sea. The view was truly beautiful and the tranquillity so welcome after the noise of Milazzo port. Our room was very comfortable and clean. Our only suggestion is that as a 4* hotel, the towels need renewing (thin, old and tired!) and the toiletries selection was very basic. The air conditioning unit was unbelievably noisy and in serious need of a service!
