First time we stayed in Cinque Balconi in November 2012. And we loved this beautiful hotel so much that we decided to come back one day... And almost two years later our dream came true! We returned to the island in June 2014. We spent three wonderful days in hotel. Everything was just great: the room, the breakfast, the staff,... More

I had the great pleasure of staying at this hotel last week while at a conference on the island, I had room 6 which had amazing views over the front of the town and the ocean and island of Lipari beyond. The hotel staff are really accommodating and helpful in every way. The garden is the highlight of the hotel... More

Our family of 5 (2 adults and 3 children) stayed at I Cinque Balconi for one night (sadly a very short visit as this would be an amazing place to linger). The staff arranged adjoining rooms which was perfect for us, and they were VERY spacious and beautifully decorated with interesting furniture, unique tiling, etc. The hotel is stunning. Service...

Our stay at I Cinque Balconi was quite pleasant. Situated in the perfect location for taking in all this Island has to offer, yet quiet and relaxing. The Breakfast Garden was a wonderful way to start our day. Surrounded by Fig and Pomegranate trees, as well as Night Blooming Jasmine, it really is wonderful. A short walk down the main... More

We stayed at i cinque balconi for 4 nights and really enjoyed the service we got from Davide and the rest of the staff at this lovely little hotel, which has been carefully renovated by the owner. The garden out back is great for breakfast or lounging around once the sun goes down. The hotel is near everything -- it's... More

We decided to stay at I Cinque Balconi hotel, because it is situated so well - just in the heart of Santa Marina Salina - a little and charming town with a lot of shops, bars restaurants. The hotel is great! Our room was so spacios and sunny. The garden... More

The rooms in this hotel have been very nicely renovated, we were 2 couples so we have seen two of the rooms. One of them was facing the street and it was light and friendly in the morning, although possibly more noisy and hotter. The other was in the back of the building, a bit dark but cooler and more...

Stayed at I Cinque Balconi in October 2011. This hotel is really special. It really fits in with Salina's rustic charming. It is well situated, and I really hope to return some day. This hotel made the rest of the hotels we stayed at in Sicily, including much more expensive hotels, seem rather ordinary. Davide was great and very helpful.... More

We stayed in Cinque Balconi for one night and thought it was great. The hotel itself is very stylish and manages to combine traditional Italian decor as well as being very modern and chic. The location is excellent, rooms our spacious, very clean and have beautiful traditional tiled floors. The only let down was the very small bathroom with an... More

Hotel i cinque balconi is a small (only 10 rooms) and esthetically furnished hotel. It has a beautiful garden with all fruit and vegetables. The rooms are spacious and provides everything you need. The hotel is located in the middle of Santa Marina Salina, at the main street (cars are not aloud, so it is quiet). You can reach the... More

As you wander around the historical centre of Santa Marina,along the main road,you cannot help but notice the fully renovated and charmingly restored I Cinque Balconi Hotel as it rises up before you. Its slightly retro atmosphere and splendid position make it a truly evocative place. Upon entering the magnificient front door one feels a peaceful sensation of a time "Past". Your eyes alight on the antique majolica tiles skilfully merged with comfort and technology. Exceptional attention and care for details,in order to create the greatest comfort possible. Pamper yourself amidst the restful perfumed citrus trees,enjoy the vien of the Aeolian Sea. ... more   less
