Reviewed December 6, 2011

Easy check-in and check-out.

Asked for and was lucky to get a room with a balcony as I am a smoker and this hotel has no smoking rooms. If you arrive at any other time than very early morning or evening, you may have issues finding a parking place as many of the passengers an commuters on the nearby ferry use this area to park.

Breakfast was the standard continental, nothing special, but was fresh. No milk available for the cereal though..

..and yet another hotel with no tea/coffee in the room, but as a ***, this is accepted.

On a side note, the shower was fantastic, very hot and great water pressure.. and lots of options where the water exited.. :-)

After leaving the Eolian islands early in the morning for a 2 hr hydrofoil ride the last thing you want to do once you have arrived on the main land is to go for a long cab ride. Hotel Continental was a 2min walk from the port. Looked clean and smelt clean as soon as i walked in (as they say first impression counts!). The gentleman and lady were so helpfull as i had so many questions for them. Internet conection 3 Euro for 24 hrs great value. Even though breakfast was included in the 79 Euro i paid for this room (Great value) i had an early start the next morning which meant me leaving at 5am but they reassured me that there would be breakfast ready downstairs. then i inquired where i could go shopping once i had a shower not realising how close the hotel is to the main Corso Garibaldi about 5min walk. After shopping my heart out it was time for a bite to eat and a yummy Gelato to stroll back to the hotel with.
so as far as i am concerned this is a very well priced hotel in a great location close to everything you might need and want!

Room: Nice room, bar fridge included. Room had view to die for of the ocean and Messina on the coast of Sicily. Serviced daily, we stayed 5 days, clean and tidy bathroom with an interesting massage shower.
Location: Good Location for walking from, next to ferry port. There is a Bus to the hotel from the station Number 125, but is infrequent, and drops you off on the water’s edge. Walk from the station is only a 25min walk however.
Facilities and Inclusions: great breakfast for choice. Outstanding coffee, made to whatever you like.. Extremely helpful desk to get information and bookings completed from. Manager speaks really good English. Will organise whatever you need, taxi, tours, maps. The manager is a very friendly and helpful guy.
Other notes: Frutta Shop around the corner and gelataria, walking distance to everything in Reggio.. Reggio is not English speaking, but you can get by. Busses are not easy to navigate. This is an Italian holiday destination and if you want to see a real Italian part of Italy this is a great place to go. Don’t be scared. The Language is the only real obstacle and even then, sign language works wonders.
