Reviewed December 25, 2011

We were fortunate enough to stay at the Petit Hotel when it was still in the hands of the original owners (beginning of November 2011). Such a wonderful ethic of the perfect host, as described by other reviewers. We arrived tired and hungry and when we said we were tired to go out to a restaurant, Giuseppe ( from Lipari) made me a delicious plate of spaghetti and went out especially to buy salad fixings for a salad - even though their in-house restaurant was no longer operational. We slept in room 2 which was toward the back of the hotel and very quiet.

When we returned from Lipari a week later the new owners had taken over. There was a new feeling to the place...not as magical as before. Tho we asked for room 2 we were given a room on the side street which wasn't as quiet. Also the in room air filter wasn't working because someone hadn't changed the filter....just not quite the same.

We'd still recommend it for convenience to the ferry to the islands...as for the rest, only time will tell what the new owners do with this oasis"

Room Tip: Room 2 if you want quiet.

Other reviews were right, this is a perfect location when in Milazzo. We just walked across the street and got on the ferries to the islands, no problems leaving bags locked away for the day when you check out. Parking can be a bit of a pain, but the street immediately beside the hotel has street parking and you can just buy tickets for parking from 1 hour to the entire day (under 5 euros for the day) from the store next to the hotel. Easy. Print a good map of Milazzo too, so you can get there with as little swearing as possible, will stay there again. Rooms super comfy, and clean. Busy road out front, but with windows closed, can't hear it. Great great.

This is the hotel that has it all; fantastic location adjacent to ferries, buses and centre of town, wonderfully helpful staff, delicious food, comfortable beds, relaxed atmosphere and eco-friendly to boot. We stayed for three nights, and didn't want to leave.

We are a middle aged couple from New Zealand that visited Italy and Sicily for the first time and reserved a room at the Petit from good reviews we had seen on Tripadvisor. We stayed for a night so we could ferry to Lipari for a day trip the next day. It was very fresh with bright colours , cool tiles and some really jazzie art. The room was spotless and has everything we needed. Breakfast was one of the best we experienced on our 6 week holiday around Italy , Sicily and Malta. The staff were friendly and helpful re local info and all the shops and restaurants are all easy walks from the front door. The harbour and ferries are just a few steps away. We would have loved to have stayed a lot longer if we had had the time, and if we get the chance to return we know where we will book our accommodation.

Stayed: October 2008

We paused in Milazzo for the night, before taking the ferries the next day --- and I fell in love with this hotel. It was beautiful, with gorgeous tile floors, and everything completely ecological not to mention a very fresh and expansive and delicious breakfast. When I asked about recommendations for our next stop - Stromboli, the staff recommended places, called for us, set it all up. This was such a find! KG

Perfectly adequate, but our visit was soured when we returned from an overnight trip to Stromboli, having left our hire car (and keys) with the hotel.

The car had been parked less than 48 hours in the garage, at an agreed rate of 12 Euro/night. The guy that took us to get our car tried to charge us extra, for 2 1/2 days, but backed down quickly when challenged by my Italian partner who had already spoken to the receptionist to clarify the charges. Both of us thought he was trying to pull a fast one and overcharge us.

This petty dishonesty was a shame as the hotel was ok and the location ideal for the ferry. The rooms are basic but clean, though the "bio" credentials we thought were a little tenous... an in-room ioniser does not a bio hotel make! Indeed, I would have welcomed some artificial preservative on the fruit in our room which was decidely past its sell by date.

English is not a strongpoint at this hotel (and indeed at many in Italy) so take a phrasebook.

On a more general point , much as we tried to like Milazzo for the evening we were there, there is little to redeem the place so i would suggest a late evening arrival or catching an afternoon ferry so you don't have to stay there!

The hotel is very centrally located in Milazzo. Across the street is the seaport and transportation to the Aoelian Islands, and a short walk to the downtown area where on Sunday nights the street is closed and everyone just strolls along. The hotel was very clean and comfortable. The staff was outstanding. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable.
I would highly recommend this hotel and would not hesitate to stay there again.
