The lady who was sitting at reception could not speak English, hence it was pretty difficult to agree about our request. The single rooms are very small. You feel uncomfortable in there. Because of this feeling, I changed my single room with double one. So I paid more. No breakfast. No service. It is the place only to sleep, if... More

Not an hotel as such the Empedocle was one of these no frills, minimum staff look after yourself sort of places. Room was stark, though with interesting ceiling paintings. Breakfast was low budget and very DIY. Added nothing to our trip, other than a place to stay in Messina.

This could be considered circumstantial however the first room we were presented with had electrical problems. The air conditioning and lights would not stay on simultaneously. They switched us to another room but the air conditioning blew warm all night and the wifi never worked for even a minute. They told us the whole city was out but we discovered... More

A short walk from the center, excellent rooms in a very quiet neighborhood. The room was huge and was well equiped. We walked downtown on friday night, and realized how quiet it was. The... More

This hotel is one of the best we've stayed in so far, certainly for the price. Quiet, clean, modern, helpful staff, easy to get to straight up the road from the station, makes this a very good Hotel for your stay in Messina. The only fault if you can call it that is that you will have to pay 12... More

It is worth making the short journey slightly uphill from the centre of town, especially the bustle of nearby Piazza Carducci, to relish the serene charm of this exquisite, simiple gem of a hotel. I got a superb single room on the sous-sol floor, on its own, but conveniently adjacent to the excellent lounge (including computer terminals), where a substantial... More
