This small hotel is an absolute gem, the best (by far) of our Sicily / Aeolian Islands tour. We were wildly impressed by the restaurant, for breakfast, lunch and dinner, by the staff, by the comfortable bed, balcony and super high-quality fittings in the bathroom, happy hour in the bar, convenient location and pretty pool. Lots more good things to... More

We stayed in Lipari for 5 days and really loved the location of this hotel. A short walk to Marina Corta - we had access to beaches (and shuttles to) in Canneto. Room was quiet, bed was fairly comfortable. We had a terrace with our room that overlooked the pool. There is a jacuzzi on the roof which was really... More

Since we last visited the top floor terrace has been developed. We used this as a pre and post dinner venue to watch the sun sets and to enjoy the... More

Close to the main high street, nice hotel with a pool and the staff were very attentive, especially Christian who was always willing to help and advise. Spacious and clean rooms, close to the action but still quiet and peaceful at night.
