“Very good choice in Lipari”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

Perfect hotel to enjoy the atmosphere of Lipari but at the same time, located in a quiet and far enough from the tourist zone to enjoy the tranquility of the area.

The hotel has also a fantastic pool which is perfecte foran afternoon of sun bathing.

Is not far from the center as some users say. In fact it is a pleasant walk of 10 minutes. However, if you bothered to walk, the hotel offers a complimentary shuttle service both to the center and back. This service is especially useful the day of departure of arrival, when you carry all the luggage.

The hotel is divided into several buildings. We had the bad luck that we get the room next to the dining room. This made, too early in the morning, feel the noise staff preparing breakfast. That's why my rating of sleep quality is low due to excessive noise too early. I'm sure, but if you get a room in another building, peace must be total.

The staff was perfect in the welcome and solving all the problems you can have during your accomodation.

Breakfast is good enough and with a wide variety of products.

Wifi is only accessible in common areas.

I spent one quick night here as part of a ferry "cruise" from Naples to Messina via Capri, Stromboli and Lipari. Next time, I'll stay here for several days. Except for Stromboli - which I recommend avoiding overnight, and visiting on a day trip from Lipari - all my hotels from Naples to Capri to Sicily were very good to excellent, and this was the best of the seven. Great service, great room, great breakfast, even a free shuttle to and from the ferry landing and around town. When I got lost walking back to the ferry on my way out, I called back to Borgo Eolie and got turn by turn directions until I recognized where I was. The bed was very comfortable, and the terrace a great place to sit out and sip a Campari soda with a (slightly distant) sea view. The pool was lovely, and shade structures there and on the terraces were well placed to allow use even in the heat of the day.

Nice hotel, friendly staff, rooms big very clean we had a lovely little terrace with table and sofa which was nice in the evenings and a little washing line which was very useful. Location is great its barely a 10 minute walk to the main strip on the way there takes no time at all, the way back is up hill they offer a regular free shuttle service which is nice but we appreciated the walk considering all the carbs we were eating in italy! My only criticism would be the walls were very thin and there was a loud hotel near by that played music a bit late, it's not that loud but if you're a light sleeper then probably best to take some ear plugs just in case. Would definitely stay again if we were in Lipari.

We stayed for four nights and had a great time. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated. The room we stayed in had a separate "wardrobe" room, a split bathroom with shower, bidet, toilet, and large sink. The living room has plenty of clothing storage, TV and also a decent sized fridge. It also had a nice outside terrace with a table, drying rack, and seating that could cater for a family meal. We ate a meal of fresh vegetables, cheese etc that we bought in the old town and the staff let us use their plates, cutery, etc.

The management / owners obviously take pride in the service they provide and the quality of the facilities. They also clearly invest in improvements to the hotel - whilst we were there they were replacing all of the deckchairs around the pool with upgraded ones.

The staff are great and go the extra mile to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

The hotel is situated slightly outside the "old town" in a nice quiet area just uphill. This is easily walkable (5-10 mins), which we did as its a pleasant stroll past the local residents' nicely tended gardens. However, there is a regular (every half an hour) free suttle to the city and the port.

All in all good value and a cut above the typical 3* hotel.

Slight issues:
- TV had uneliable reception but this is probably not the hotel's fault
- No wireless internet in rooms, but again this seems standard across Sicilian hotels
- Breakfast could probably do with a rethink, for instance limited fresh fruit available.

We had a great stay here. Lovely hotel. They upgraded our room to a family room at no extra cost! Massimo is a fantastic manager and the customer service is superb. It takes about 10 mins to walk to the harbour.

We stayed here for one night and were really impressed by the amazing service. =The staff were friendly and bent over backwards to be helpful. When we went out for dinner, we suspected we had missed the free shuttle bus but the guy on reception offered to take us anyway and dropped us at the door of the restaurant we had chosen. The whole hotel was beautiful with a lovely terrace area and lots of flowers. The room was nicely decorated and very clean. It had a lovely balcony with a view of the swimming pool and neighbouring fields. We'd definitely stay here again.

We stayed 4 days in Hotel Borgo Eolie. When we arrived, they came with the hotel's shuttle bus to get us to the hotel. First, we had a room that was a bit separated from the rest of the hotel, so we asked for change, the woman on the reception was extremely friendly and immediatly offered us a room directly on the pool (for the same price), so we changed and hat a great stay in a very lovely, clean room in front of the pool. The pool is small, but very relaxing. All the flowers/gardenings around the hotel are very well-groomed. Service was always friendly. The hotel is a 12-minute walk from the center, but if you wish, there is always a shuttle bus to bring you to the port. The only thing that could improve a little in our eyes is the quality of the breakfast. In total, Hotel Borgo Eolie has a perfect price/performance ratio and we will recommend it to our friends.

Room Tip: The rooms in front of the pool are very nice.
