This is kind of student resident in a great location. I found it very clean and staff was so helpful. Rooms on the top floor are excellent because they got a nice terrace, perfect to enjoy nice weather. Rooms are quite spacious for families and group of friends, they also got a small kitchen in case you want to save... More

Let's start with the good points: Good location. The room was spacious and had an old classic design. The person at the reception was friendly. Bad points: Our bathroom was small and the bathroom tub/shower was really dirty. Same the shower panels. Almost no breakfast, just a coffee machine, packed biscuits and bread. Quite expensive for what it offers.

There are good and weak points about this place. Alexa at the desk is a hoot and the staff was very friendly. Room was large but somehow dingy; halls smelled musty. Location is excellent, near the centro storico and port and train station and shopping. (Important note, best gelato in the area at Piazza Cairola, think the name was Niara).... More

This place served it's purpose for one night - to get into Messina and out of it again as quickly as possible! Messina was not a particularly nice town, a bit soul-less, so I wouldn't recommend a stay there unless absolutely necessary. If you do decide to stay, this hotel was ok, but not brilliant. The air conditioning did not... More

I really enjoyed our stay at this hotel; the room was amazing! It was like a small apartment, with a kitchenette, a couple of rooms/bathrooms, and balcony with incredible view. We were on the top floor which was quite a trek up the stairs, but they have a neat little elevator. There was wireless internet in the rooms, but I... More

Based on the website of the hotel which boasts of quite a few ammenities i book this hotel. Sadly, the service was awful. There was no internet connection. The inclusive breakfast consists of two biscuits and a cup of orange juice. The reception is NOT 24 hours rather it closes at 7pm everyday and if you happen to arrive on... More
