My sister and I traveled in Europe for two months in the fall of 2008, during which time we stayed in many hotels. Hotel La Sciara was our very favorite. It's gorgeous, peaceful (without seeming old), and friendly. The grounds, pool, and landscaping are well-maintained and beautiful. There's even a small, stunning black-sand beach for guests' use at the end... More

I was rather dismayed reading the only neative review for La Sciara, as they seem to be somewhat missing the point. Stromboli island has a basic, rustic charm that is reflected in the hotel. The island was without electricity until well after WWII, and will always have the feel of a small island, quiet and isolated and perfect to get... More

I stayed here during September 2007. On the whole, I found it to be an OK place... some good points, some bad points (see below). Overall I was not unhappy, mainly because I had a very low room rate, but its overall levels of ameneties and service were very average. On the upside, one of the best things about this... More

My wife and I traveled Sicily for 2 weeks and we enjoyed our 3 nights at La Sciara the most of our entire trip. Our room had an outside terrace with a view of the pool and the ocean in the background. We found it very relaxing sitting by the pool, looking up at the volcano, while enjoying drinks and... More

Cindy - London: Great location, beautiful room with a terrace overlooking the sea. Every member of the staff was kind and helpful. Most of all the front of house manager, highly qualified and professional, made my holiday...unforgettable!

My husband and I spent eight days at La Sciara during May of this year, of which we had originally booked only three. We travelled to Italy for three weeks vacation with only three hotels booked, including La Sciara. The rest we would decide along the way. We took a ferry to Stromboli and arrived early in the morning, to... More

My wife and I stayed at La Sciara four days, along with our daughter-in-law and 2-year-old grandson. The hotel is very attractive, clean, and comfortable. The staff were charming and helpful, and the food was quite good. Our excursions on the island and up the volcano were excellent. This is a first-class hotel and I would recommend it to anyone.
