Villa Augustus lies just a few minutes walk from the ferry terminal in Lipari and just a few minutes walk from the centre of town. It is a spacious residence with a large lounge, and dining room. The rooms are a decent size and well maintained. Villa Augustus also has a slightly eccentric feel to it which enjoyably adds to... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in a small room with a shower basically on the toilet. The room had a fan and airconditioning and was overlooking a pretty terrace. All around it is was quite clean and ok to sleep there for 2 nights. Helpful staff.

This was our second time at Villa Augustus. We love its location, less than 5 minute walk from alighting the ferry at the wharf. It is also near buses and taxis. Rooms are not overly big but are clean and have all that you need. The room we stayed in opened onto a little balcony that overlooked a garden. The... More

I've stayed at this hotel in June for about 8 days. It was very quiet so I had a very good sleep there. Breakfast was great, buffet style, it included capers on a day-to-day basis, among other things. The common area including the breakfast area was very cozy and comfortable. This was needed even more since wi-fi did not work... More

This is an old fashioned hotel in the colonial style, much in need of refurbishment, located in a side street close to the ferry terminal. The staff are uninterested in, and disengaged from, clients. No enthusiasm or desire to go the extra mile. The bedrooms are adequate, clean(ish) and reasonably comfortable. Air conditioning didn't work in my room, though it... More

Villa Augustus is a really interesting building with a relaxing atmosphere. We stayed for 3 nights and were very impressed with it. Its location is absolutely perfect being a 5 to 10 minute easy walk from the main ferry port and a pleasant walk through the town to the smaller port where the tour boats leave from. The room was...

We chose Villa Augustus in part for ease of ferry access. To get closer to the deep-water dock where the ferries arrive, you'd have to sleep on a gangplank. Post office, grocery store, pharmacy, restaurants -- pretty much everything you want is just steps away, and the not-too-be missed museum is an easy though uphill walk. We had two rooms... More

We stayed 2 nights in Villa Augustus and loved it. We were initially given a room in the patio but on request (and at a small fee) we changed to a room on the top floor with a terrace. Definitely a great move. It had a private terrace that led onto a common terrace, what a beautiful room! The small... More

Sound an oasis with its welcoming jasmin perfume coming from its trees. Italian and continental breakfast. The hotel helped out as well for the excursions making phone calls to find out which companies will go out, fares and when. Very good taste in the interiors designs (carpets, amphora, furniture ..
