We have just returned from visiting this hotel and it is just so beautiful. It is very quiet even though it is off the main road. The rooms are set behind the front entrance and on different levels therefore not ideal for small children. The room are furnished in traditional Italian style. The pool is large and the views are...

Perched atop the lovely village of Malfa, this hotel enjoys an incredible view of the deep blue Mediterranean sea with the islands of Stromboli and Panarea in the background. The hotel is very peaceful and relaxing with only 12 rooms and large and elegantly furnished common areas. The rooms are rather small, but this is typical for Italian hotels. Breakfast... More

...there is no better place on Salina! Overlooking the sea from every part of the Hotel and in walking distance to Malfa. The owner and Service-Team are very attentive and helpful for any kind of support that you may need. Needless to say something about Malfa, Salina or the Eolian Islands...a paradise!

Stayed here 5 nights in August and it was superb. I'd describe this is a mini-boutique sort of residence - there's only 12 rooms so it's a very relaxing place to stay. The owners obviously take pride in ensuring it's in great condition and the communal areas are all very nicely decorated and smell great, plenty of chairs to relax... More

Just back from a week here with family (wife and 2 teenage sons). We had a wonderful time in this outstanding hotel. Location is great, having just 12 rooms makes it a relaxed, low-key, place but feels spacious and the pool is stunning (clean water, almost-infinity and plenty of chairs to go round). Staff were friendly and efficient. Breakfasts were... More

This is one one the nicest hotels I've ever stayed in anywhere. Really. Located on a road leading into town, the public areas are essentially 3 terraces built into the side of a mountain - large open spaces with views over rooftops, growing crops, the sea and out to other islands. The lowest terrace is the swimming pool - huge... More

We just returned from spending 5 incredible days at the Hotel Principe di Salina. In short, this was the best vacation we have had in years. The Hotel Principe - and our hosts - were an essential part of this. The town of Malfa is the perfect balance of natural beauty and tranquility, all in a beautiful beach setting with... More

My family enjoyed a special few days staying in Malfa. This hotel is friendly, quiet, spotlessly run, with great attention to detail, a big swimming pool and stunning views from the breakfast terrace. We would recommend this hotel to any family or group that was looking to spend some time enjoying the food and sights of the Aeolian islands.
