We are a party of 6 travelling from Australia with an age group between 35 and 60.We had heard about the Aeolian Islands but were clueless about what to expect in Lipari. We were excited when Hotel staff picked us up from the wharf and held on with white knuckles as the driver manoeuvred his vehicle through oblivious pedestrians, narrow... More

Hotel was great, specially the service. Location was also a plus, shutle service to the port was more than useful. Swimming pool was great as well as the access to the city center. Views are match what offer on the website.

The staff here are great and exceeded our expectations. The hotel is relatively new and the rooms clean and spacious. We chose rooms with the sea views and they were great. Breakfasts were good and evening meals were ok but there is also plenty of choice in the town. There is a free shuttle into town that we used a... More

Fabulous place to stay, incredible value for money, rooms spacious, we had a balcony looking towards the sea and another facing inland too. Our friends' room had a bath. Comfortable king size bed. Sheets good but towels old and tired. Easy walk into town (10 minutes) - ask for directions as there is a cut through footpath, do not take... More

Arrived to warm reception and shown to beautiful traditional room which was very clean and had a really great bathroom with very fancy shower! The pool area was very quiet and clean. The breakfast was great and it's only a five minute walk to the centre of town. Perfect.

The staff in the Hotel Bougainville are all helpful. The front desk helped us arrange our excursion to Stromboli, which made things much less confusing (there are so many choices!). The facility is absolutely perfect. Additionally, the price was very reasonable. The pool area looked lovely, but we did not have time to use it. We also did not use... More

We spent more time than originally intended in the hotel, as our trip to Stromboli was cancelled due to bad weather. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the décor is charming. There are plenty of choices if one wants to lounge outside. We loved the peace of its location, yet we were only 5 minutes (by foot) from the... More

I arrived at the hotel and was immediately greeted by members of the staff who explained the services of the hotel and walked me to my spacious and well-appointed room. There was nothing lacking. The lobby, dining areas, terraces, solarium and grounds are meticulously cared for and provided a relaxing experience. The wait staff, especially Salvatore, were gracious, friendly and... More

We had an absolutely fantastic stay at Hotel Bougainville: The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the location, set on a small hill with beautiful views, is great.
