I was excited about going to the Aeolian Islands and planned to stay on Lipari for 3 days while exploring the other islands. My room at the Grande Hotel Arciduca was not up to the standards I expcect, especially given the price. The linen was of poor quality. The air conditioner to handle the hot summer heat was insufficient. The foot was mediocre. I did enjoy my tour of the other islands, especially Stromboli. I just wish I had booked at a different hotel
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Among the multi-coloured Aeolian houses of Lipari’s historic centre stands a romantic little cluster of three buildings: the Grand Hotel Arciduca, named in honour of Louis Salvator, Archduke of Austria. The Hapsburgs’ opulence combines with Sicilian styles from the end of the 19th century to create a summer palace. The bedrooms are elegant, public areas are warm and welcoming and the service is excellent. The restaurant terrace overlooks the heated swimming-pool with its hydromassage, set among the colours and perfumes of Mediterranean shrubs. A sun terrace, a gym and a games room complete the ideal setting for a holiday on Lipari. Just a few steps away is the square of Marina Corta, by the fishermen’s port and the hydrofoil dock. The little beach of Portinente is a two-minute walk and the colourful little shops and boutiques in the town centre can be reached in a couple of minutes more. Those in search of culture, on the other hand, have only a 5-minute walk to reach Lipari’s Castle, which has a museum and an archaeological garden, and the Cathedral with its cloister. ... more less
