Only place I never want to see again! Felt unsafe, dingy, mis_ represented and lack of customer service. Dismal. Couldn't wait to get out of there. Very few choices in Messina as alternatives. Booked for two nights and stayed one. If I could have gotten a car in the middle of the night I would have been out of there....

Good morning and thank you for your review. We are surprised of your considerations and we are sorry that your stay was not pleasant. The hotel is in the city centre and is very safe and quiet. The reception is open till 19:00 but we are available over the Phone h24. At the reception we speak several languages but we...

The let us stay in front of the hotel for 1 hour!!! We told them our time of arrival but they don't have a reception. You have to ring a bell and it doesn't work. you have to communicate with a telephone voice who is not physically present at the hotel. NEVER AGAIN room was nice though

So close to the station and shopping yet in a quiet location. My "suite" was on the third floor. Comprised a bedroom, sitting/dining room/ small kitchen with stove top.(both rooms with balconies) and a small but adequate bathroom. I thought it was good value. Don't expect a decent breakfast, although there were fresh pastries. There is not 24 hour reception...

Nice location for a short trip to Messina.Room fine and promised. Livingroom with coocking premesies and separate bedroom - so nice - I like space! Short access from train station. I had late arrival because the trains were really booked and I couldn´t have the fast train from Amalfi. And it takes its time to get in ferry from mainland...

This is kind of student resident in a great location. I found it very clean and staff was so helpful. Rooms on the top floor are excellent because they got a nice terrace, perfect to enjoy nice weather. Rooms are quite spacious for families and group of friends, they also got a small kitchen in case you want to save...

Let's start with the good points: Good location. The room was spacious and had an old classic design. The person at the reception was friendly. Bad points: Our bathroom was small and the bathroom tub/shower was really dirty. Same the shower panels. Almost no breakfast, just a coffee machine, packed biscuits and bread. Quite expensive for what it offers.

There are good and weak points about this place. Alexa at the desk is a hoot and the staff was very friendly. Room was large but somehow dingy; halls smelled musty. Location is excellent, near the centro storico and port and train station and shopping. (Important note, best gelato in the area at Piazza Cairola, think the name was Niara)....

This place served it's purpose for one night - to get into Messina and out of it again as quickly as possible! Messina was not a particularly nice town, a bit soul-less, so I wouldn't recommend a stay there unless absolutely necessary. If you do decide to stay, this hotel was ok, but not brilliant. The air conditioning did not...

I really enjoyed our stay at this hotel; the room was amazing! It was like a small apartment, with a kitchenette, a couple of rooms/bathrooms, and balcony with incredible view. We were on the top floor which was quite a trek up the stairs, but they have a neat little elevator. There was wireless internet in the rooms, but I...

Based on the website of the hotel which boasts of quite a few ammenities i book this hotel. Sadly, the service was awful. There was no internet connection. The inclusive breakfast consists of two biscuits and a cup of orange juice. The reception is NOT 24 hours rather it closes at 7pm everyday and if you happen to arrive on...
