My family and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. The room was large enough for us and it had a big terrace. Centrally located-5 minute walk to town or water. Food was all made on the premises, including breakfast and desserts prepared by the nephew of the chef. He custom made a delicious birthday cake for me and... More

We spent last week at this hotel in Lipari. The hotel is nicely situated. It is a few minutes away (walking) from the points of departure of various ports and also very close to restaurants and shops. They served a very nice breakfast in the morning which included a variety of meats, some egg (usually scrambled), cheeses, breads, pastries and... More

This review is about the hotel and not the restaurant. The hotel was really nice, a big room, a charming bathroom and very useful ac. I really enjoyed my one-week stay in it! Single downside, the swimmingpool is very small, but, guys, there is sea all around!

We had booked a few nights here but arrived one day early. Luckily there was a very good superior room with balcony available. After the first night our luggage was transferred to the room we had booked originally. Both rooms were spacious with balconies and huge beds.
