“Awful Hotel in the middle of nowhere”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2005

This hotel is old, smelly and the staff were not pleasant at all. The only positive thing about them was the thick, hot chocolate they served in the morning breakfast. Cost of room was Eur 120 per night for a double. Hotel was empty and staff put us in rooms with no view. We asked to change to rooms with views of the sea which they later did. Beds were much too soft and squeeky. Mosquitos were attacking us all night (although that applies to all of Italy during the summer.) Hotel is too far from the port of Milazzo and we had to arrange to have a taxi drive us to the port. You are better off staying at other hotels than this old hotel that is in desperate need of friendlier staff and a major renovation.

The Silvanetta Palace is a nice-enough, moderately priced facility in Milazzo, a small city in northeast Sicily that serves as a port for the Aeolian Islands. In addition it is not far from Taormina and provides much more affordable and available lodging than that neighboring resort town. In Milazzo, as in several Sicilian cities, there is a scarcity of street signs; and navigation at night is quite a challenge for visitors. The Silvanetta Palace responded to our advance request for directions with not much more than an assurance that "you can't miss it," stating that there was only one way into town and that signs would point to their hotel. Suffice it to say this was not true in any regard, and when after an hour of searching, we finally stumbled on it (we had actually given up and decided to drive into the first hotel we could find), we were greeted with an indifference completely unworthy of the normally helpful and friendly Italian people. This could be a good hotel if they had any concept of service; as it is, I cannot recommend it.
