Nice hotel, very modern with heated towels and spacious room. I had my doubts as we drove in, but as soon as we entered the lobby, my doubts vanished. The staff was very accommodating, the desk clerk spoke good English, the restaurant was satisfactory, with limited choices. We both had a pasta dish which was good. Very clean, nice elevator....

Although the location is not great, just in front of Milazzo port, this hotel was an absolute gem. The room was huge and the bathroom too. Beds very comfortable and breakfast very varied and delicious. we got a nice tip for a restaurant as well and, all in all, the service was great.

The hotel is modern and conveniently situated for the ferries to the Aeolian Islands. Unfortunately the modernity is not always convenient, eg the strange joystick which controls the water in the bathroom basin. The shower lacks any sort of door. Some bedrooms overlook an internal air well, others a decrepit back street and others the noisy front street. But it... More

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

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
