This ultra-modern high tech hotel in Milazzo is a surprise from many perspectives. Historic building outside , modern interior and everything works perfectly. Good spoken English by the efficient staff . The rooms also modern and very ergonomic. A lot of towels and spotlessly clean. The breakfast high quality. You will not find salami and mozzarella but fresh pastry with... More

Had to Stay in Milazzo as a result of a weather based delay for catching that Dream Day Trip to the Aeolian Islands. Lovely Modern Hotel. Excellent Location (250 metres) from the Departure Port for the day Cruise Companies and Hydrofoil Operators. Clean Efficient and Good Service. Reception Staff who Went that extra Mile. Free Wifi throughout the Hotel. Breakfast... More

My girlfriend and I stayed 3 days. The hotel takes place at the east side of the port which is still close to every restaurant or shopping store. The rooms are quite big, pretty, very clean and very stylish. Also we had balcony to the port view. Not really much to see. In our deal we ate breakfast and it... More

We stayed at this hotel because it is close to the ferries to the Aeolian islands. Here are a few things I wanted to share with fellow travelers. 1. The hotel is beautifully decorated. It has a great modern feel with great paintings and furnishing. 2. We visited in June. While it wasn't sweltering it was warm. The first night... More

We didn't expect a lot from Milazzo, and planned just to visit the islands, so the Hotel La Bussola was a very pleasant surprise - the room was very comfortable and with a lovely balcony overlooking the port. The bed was very comfortable and the shower fantastic! Dinner at the hotel restaurant was delicious and not too expensive. Car parking... More

My friend and I came to Milazzo to catch a ferry to visit the Aeolian Island. We stayed at this hotel for two nights. It's new, nice and clean! We also visited the town itself. It has a beautiful castle and a promontory with breathtaking views! The personnel at the hotel is very polite and helpful. We enjoyed very much... More

We are a young couple from Australia on our honeymoon, and it was our first time in Sicily and Milazzo. Apart from the magical area that Milazzo is, this hotel was just purely and simply fantastic. Staff were friendly, polite, courteous and tried the upmost to attend to your needs. Their knowledge of the area was of great assistance. The... More

This place is hell ... diabolical, unsympathitic, cold interior design, which pales into insignificance against the attitude of the staff. Never have I passed a more uncomfortable night or been more grateful for a 5am wake up call, allowing us to escape. The air conditioning was broken and our airless room stuck at around 30 degrees. The receptionist was utterly... More
