I Cinque Balconi is beautifully situated on the main street of Santa Marina in a characterful old building with beautiful tiled floors and wrought iron balconies. Our superior room was large with a balcony overlooking the sea and the street. The breakfast was excellent with plenty of choices between cereal, croissant, and cold meats and cheese. The owner was happy... More

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 visited Salina island in november 2012 (13-15), two nights. 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
