“If heaven was a place on Earth”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

This hotel is the best experience we had over a 14 days tour through Southern Italy. The service and atmosphere was fantastic. Staff was so helpfull. We were there 4 days with our two kids (9 and 7) - and we all enjoyed it. Although a bit away from the main part of the town of Lipari, the walking distance i 12 minutes with kids, and you can always arrange with the Hotel's Shuttle Bus.

Room Tip: We had room 205 all four days - and it was perfect

It’s a measure of a fine hotel that when you finally get round to reviewing it several months later the memory is still warm and fresh. The Borgo Eolie works on several levels. It is fabulous value for money and it’s great to find a relatively new hotel in Italy. The facilities are of good quality but it’s the extra level of service that makes this one a bit special. Most of the reviews have mentioned the shuttle bus which might seem a bit odd to someone who hasn’t stayed at the hotel. It’s not that the Borgo is so far from the action that you need the bus, it’s the fact that they will take and pick you up pretty well whenever you want. This is the ethos of the hotel, you’re on holiday, they will do what they can to make it easier and more enjoyable for you.
Lipari was fabulous, the Borgo Eolie, the icing on the cake. Do visit the other islands. But if you only have time to do one thing, go on the night trip to Stromboli. Magical.

Selected this hotel because it was rated #1 out of 35 on trip advisor & now I know why. What a beautiful, brand new, very comfortable hotel !! Rooms, service, breakfast all 5 stars !! I even went in the pool on October 9, 2012 !!
We only stayed 1 night. We are finishing breakfast as I write now, and plan to stay 3 nights next year with a Mallamaci Tour group !

We got a very reasonable deal to spend our three nights on Lipari here. The room looked quite new and was very clean and comfortable with a nice balcony. I think there's also a pool but we didn't investigate it. The breakfast selection was very good; bread, cooked meats and cheese, croissants, jam, fruit and yogurts, even some scrambled eggs. They don't have a restaurant on site but there are arrangements with several local restaurants for discounts off their regular menus.

It is slightly out of the centre but there is a frequent free shuttle service provided by the hotel, to either to the port or to the nearest end of the pedestrianised main street. It's barely a ten minute walk from there but not a particularly scenic one so we made use of the pickup once or twice.

We have stayed 2 nights at this nice hotel.
the room was clean ,nice, spacy and had good shower.
but without any doubts , a service given by a one man show - Massimo , is the reason why we strongly recommend it. Massimo picked us from the port , and gave us any service and tips one could think of. He made us feel wanted and comfortable .
The distance from the center (around 1.2km) is a bit disturbing , but the car service given by the hotel is compensating on it.

Lovely rooms with good quality fittings (although bathroom and shower a bit small). Balcony and small but nice pool (but note sun goes behind hill at 4pm). Very nice breakfasts and helpful English speaking staff. Overall highly recommended.

On arrival we got a two bedroom apartment which had two balconies. Staff were friendly and their English was good. Breakfast has a big selection and the food was good. They have a shuttle bus that runs between the hotel and the centre of Lipari, you have to book it during the day, but at night they run it every 15mins. Alternately you can walk it in about 15mins.
