I spent four days here in June and overall had an excellent experience. I was traveling with a group and there was a little confusion on room assignments at the beginning but it was quickly sorted out. The hotel room was spacious with a kitchenette attached inside. The location of the hotel is very convenient. There is a small market... More

Had 10 days here in late September -early October. Beautifully set gardens and nice pool. Apartment was well done and clean. Basic kitchenette that opened up so you could do some very basic self catering but don't expect it to be like a fully equipped self catering place in UK. The hotel did breakfast which was pleasant. We used the... More

Lovely idyll tucked behind a gateway along Via Francisco Crispi, right on the harborside. Great location, professional and excellent service. Most accommodating. Short walk to the city center, and the ferry to the other Aeolian Islands. Staff was friendly and unassuming. WiFi spotty at best, but maybe that's not a bad thing. Put the tablet down.

The location and tranquility of this place is fantastic. Franki (I think that was his name), the manager, was very nice and friendly plus he spoke excellent English. The pool was good. However, our room wasn't that clean. The floor was a bit dirty as was the shelf in the bathroom. There were also squashed mosquitos on the wall -... More

Only a few moments walk from the centre of Lipari this is the perfect quiet location to relax in when not exploring the town and other islands. The rooms are basic but clean, modern and (vitally!) air conditioned. The well tended garden is fairly large and verdant. The pool is also a fair size with lots of loungers and chairs... More

An excellent hotel to be in and safe for the children. Very close to the port and to the centre. Beautiful pool surrounded by a well kept garden. We had like a small airconditioned flat (six people can sleep in it) with a kitchen, even though we had breakfast in their restaurant. Breakfast was good. It is very clean and... More

Located right next to the port, where embark / disembark from the ferry, La Giara is at a superior location and is very quiet at night. The staff is extremely friendly. Although we had to leave reay early in the morning - the staff prepared a breakfast for us in the morning! Excellent service!

This was my second visit to the Aolian Islands, having stayed at the four star Tritone Hotel during my last visit. This time we wanted something less formal, with a central location with a pool and this is what we got. When you arrive on the ferry, walk out onto the road and turn immediate right along the pavement with... More

Wasn't sure what to expect, but wasn't disappointed. The location was great, close to the main street and port but far enough away not to be noisy. Staff were both very friendly and helpful with bookings for island trips. We had an apartment and having a little kitchenette and a balcony with a washing line(!!) were two added bonuses. Only...
