The staff is very friendly and they have a good restaurant. The rooms are big but the double bed has two mattresses instead of one and I heard the highway all night so didn't sleep well. The water temperature under the shower changes between warm and cold every couple of seconds. The wi-fi is very slow, even just to read... More

I highly recommend this hotel. If you are traveling from or to Palermo or that area I would make this the stop before taking the Ferry. Villafranca Tirrena is a small town but the hotel is not small town. We walked in and the Gentleman at the front desk was great. We stayed on Oct. 28, 2015. I wanted to... More

As such - just a place to sleep the hotel was perfect, located between the local highway A20/E90 and smaller SS113. Easy to access from the road. The staff was friendly, sleep quality was O.K. The breakfast was not much neither... More

Since it reopened in 2009 after refurbishment I have stayed at the Viola Palace many times, it is my stopover before and after the Aeolian islands and for flights to or from Catania. The food in the l'Agave restaurant is fresh, local and typical Messinese, the staff are friendly and professional and nothing is too much trouble. Perfect for the... More
