I spent two weeks at the E Hotel - may 25-June 9, 2013. The hotel is tough to find as it sits below street level, but cabbies are familiar with it if coming from the airport (10 min ride). The hotel has a full restaurant with excellent seafood specials every night (fresh swordfish, octopus, clams, etc), excellent pasta, the fresh mozzarella and other cheeses make for great appetizers and a good wine list. Breakfast is on the first floor - buffet style with terrific pastries, cheese, yogurt, fresh fruit and lots of freshmade coffees. You can take your coffee to the 5th floor roof top patio for an unparalleled view of Sicily.
The staff really go out of their way to be helpful. A few speak English. The hotel is ideally situated- out the door to your left for a out a block and a half, through the gates to the beach; up the hill is the shopping boulevard and interesting neighborhoods with street vendors selling fresh fruit (cherries, peaches, veggies), fresh pressed olive oil in wine bottles or seafood. About three blocks away is the ferry terminal to Sicily and the Aolian islands (Stromboli volcano). The train station is on street level within sight of the hotel.
The bedrooms are spotless, the beds are hard, plenty of hot water and towels. The wifi is excellent.
