Upon arriving after a horrific bus/train/taxi ordeal from the Catania airport, we were given a tacky room on the outside of the first floor (one of the ones pictured with the red bed). The door didn't work and the knob actually fell off so we were taken to the room next door. The shower didn't have hot water and I strongly suspect that these rooms have been broken into and not repaired. We again complained and were shown an inside room that was a studio with a living room/kitchen and a bedroom. The decor hadn't changed since the 1970s or so and the mattress was probably from about then, completely worn out. The stove didn't work at all but at least the shower had hot water. But again the bathroom door handle fell off. It had an in-room safe but that's the only good thing I can say. At least they had a half decent breakfast by budget hotel standards. We were lied to several times by the receptionist who was pushing a 150 euro shuttle from Catania airport (she said there was no train or bus service to Venetico which is completely false), and a tour of the Aeolian Islands and Stromboli volcano that didn't look anything like the tour from Milazzo. Stay there at your own peril...
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Venetic (ME) is an old village located at only 10 minutes from Milazzo, half an hour from Taormina-Catania airport, facing a group of small Islands called Eolie; straight on this bay, along the seaside, lies "La baia di Ulisse", our modern and smart hotel-residence. A charming, warm atmosphere offers you the best "welcome home" as soon as you reach us; all apartments are modern furnished and on the sunny side of the bay. Our geographic position allows you to go in a few time to Taormina, Eolie islands and Etna vulcan (more then 6000 feet height!). The hotel has also a private beach where the sun shines all over the day and the warm Mediterranean waters invite you to swim and dream. In the night, at least, music and country dances will attract you as the magic Ulysse's Sirens. ... more less
