Thanks again for our lovely stay in zilema Hotel. We were staying for a wedding close by. Staff are excellent. The homemade croissants at breakfast were unreal. Location is a little out of the way but the staff couldnt do more for you. Antonio is a gem!

We were heading back up to Sorrento after 2 weeks roadtripping the southern Italian coast, and spotted this little gem for a very reasonable price. The young ladies on reception were exceptionally helpful and friendly. Our room was big enough, with a lovely large balcony overlooking the shore, and yes, the train track and road. But that was all part... More

This hotel is situated right on the highway, so very easy to find. The downside it that our room, although it had a lovely terrace and overlooked the sea, also overlooked the railroad tracks, so we heard the trains pass through in the night. However, apart from that, the room was comfortable and clean and the staff was fantastic. We... More

We found the hotel after seeing nothing of interest in Paola and a day's drive from Sicily. Great spot, friendly family-run hotel, very good restaurant for both dinner and breakfast!The room was very comfortable. The staff were warm and friendly and spoke good English. This was just right for us at the end of a long driving day.

As were visiting family in a nearby town (Fagnano Castello) The Hotel Zilema offered a excellent location right on the ocean. The room was great and staff were friendly and helpful, offering excellent service. The breakfasts were substantial in a large dining room with great views, with a freshly cooked omelet if desired!! Plenty of parking, and free Wifi available.... More

Travelling by car from Sorrento, we were driving south toward Paolo and literally stumpled on this family run hotel. We were tired, hot, and exhausted and were actually looking for Cetraro which is up the coast. The receptionist was so pleasant and accommodating when we asked for a room; however, only had matrimonial suites left. She had to check with... More

This is the second time we have stayed at this Hotel and again we have had a fabulous stay. This family run hotel is spotlessly clean, the food is gorgeous and freshly prepared and the owners will do everything they can to make your stay enjoyable. They also speak very good English and will help with any translation, taxi bookings,... More

We had a wonderful 5 nights at Hotel Zilema. The owners were wonderful and their service was "above and beyond." We had requested a triple room with a sea view. It turned out to be a ground floor room which faced the sea, but there was no view - except for the train directly across the street. When we complained,... More

If you are looking for a pleasant, reasonable, clean hotel to stay in I would consider Hotel Zilema. We were there for 5 nights with a family of 5 and if I was able to go back to that area of Calabria I would stay there. Friendly staff, clean place and Vincenzo speaks pretty good english. We were visiting family... More
