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!

I would thoroughly recommend this hotel. The rooms were extremely clean and comfortable. The service was excellent, the staff is extremely pleasant and efficient. We had a really delicious meal in the restaurant which we were explained it was a traditional dish (Aeolian Salad) and a delicious pasta which I have never tasted before with squid ink.

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. The receptionist was very helpful and sorted out our needs. Although quite busy,... More

This hotel is lovely, small, well-appointed, with curteous professional staff. It is well situated in Lipari, all the action is a short stroll away but the Arciduc offers an oasis of calm.

My girlfriend and I had the perfect break here last summer. Although Lipari is a bit of a stretch to get to from London, the trip is well worth the effort and time. Travellers are awarded by a wonderfully sedate island, brimming with character and warm spirit. Having said that, I do recommend a car to get the full benefit... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Among the multi-coloured Aeolian houses of Lipari’s historic centre stands a romantic little cluster of three buildings: the Grand Hotel Arciduca, named in honour of Louis Salvator, Archduke of Austria. The Hapsburgs’ opulence combines with Sicilian styles from the end of the 19th century to create a summer palace. The bedrooms are elegant, public areas are warm and welcoming and the service is excellent. The restaurant terrace overlooks the heated swimming-pool with its hydromassage, set among the colours and perfumes of Mediterranean shrubs. A sun terrace, a gym and a games room complete the ideal setting for a holiday on Lipari. Just a few steps away is the square of Marina Corta, by the fishermen’s port and the hydrofoil dock. The little beach of Portinente is a two-minute walk and the colourful little shops and boutiques in the town centre can be reached in a couple of minutes more. Those in search of culture, on the other hand, have only a 5-minute walk to reach Lipari’s Castle, which has a museum and an archaeological garden, and the Cathedral with its cloister. ... more   less
