Without doubt the best place to stay in Salina - Hotel Mercanti di Mare is a beautiful little hotel with so much charm and is fantastically located just by the piazza. We stayed in one of the rooms which had it's own private terrace - the room was spotless and so comfortable. The hotel bar is an equally lovely place... More

We chose to stay at Mercanti di Mare because of its proximity to the port in Santa Marina. It is a short and easy walk to the hotel - far enough from the bustle of the arriving ferries to be relaxing and close to everything including the bus stops. Dario, our host, was extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel has... More

We enjoyed our brief stay in this lovely hotel.It was comfortable,clean, well-appointed and most of all we enjoyed having our own private little terrace overlooking the beach, with marvellous rattan chaises longues to sit on. It was end of season and hardly anyone around so it felt as though we had the whole place to ourselves. No breakfast offered at... More

Excellent location, great atmosphere and extremely friendly and knowledgeable staff (Dario and Serena). Highly recommended and the perfect place to start your vacation/visit to beautiful Salina. Regards from a well travelled couple who are Italy lovers residing in the Netherlands.

We just lobbed on Salina with nothing booked. As we trudgedt toward town from the boat we saw this wonderful little hotel right at the port. Luckily there was a vacancy and the lady even gave us a discount because we were late. Later on we attended the bar and were given friendly and prompt service including snacks by Dario... More

A terrific place to stay. Close to the port and the best gelato on the island. We had a room that slept four people. It was a little tight but the room had a very large balcony where we had lunch and could watch the passing parade of people as it overlooked the piazza and a little bar next to... More

I was extremely sick when we got to Salina for our two night stay. So, I wasn't able to see much of the island or enjoy the trip too much. However, I did think Hotel Mercanti di Mare was an excellent location, the room was quite nice, and the staff was really friendly. The Internet was weird - it worked... More

If you like a non-pretentious environment, simple but good taste décor, all comforts and friendly management, no need to look further than the Mercanti di Mare hotel when staying in Salina. We went to the island of Salina to relax and enjoy some peace and quiet. In October the island is quiet and we found what we were looking for.... More

Although in our 60's, we were dying to do the Gregory Peck -Audrey Hepburn thing again and scooter around Salina. (Had done it on Lipari in '08.) Hotel Mercanti was the perfect choice to drop our backpacks and Santa Marina Salina was the best town -a lovely buzz to the place and plenty of eating-out options. Ask Dario -he knows... More

We had a fabulous four nights - we had the least desirable room in the hotel (booked very late!) - it opened onto the breakfast and early evening drink terrace so our outside space was quite public but it was absolutely delightful! 2 mins from the boat - no need to leave until you see it coming into the port!...
