“Excellent choice, great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

We recently spent 4 nights here and were completely happy with our choice - just what we were looking for. Daniela, who speaks excellent English, and the whole family were so friendly and helpful. Our room 72 was big and had it's own foyer with a bathroom off of that. We had a balcony with two lounges and a small view of the sea and a good view of the Church of the Seccorso. The location was perfect - just 2 minutes walk from the pedestrian area of town. It is a neighborhood setting, just one block off the busy road by the water - not much traffic but still motor scooter noise during the day. Breakfasts were served on the covered terrace and included various fresh rolls and breads, meats, boiled eggs, juice, freshly made espresso drinks. We also ate dinner here and thought the 3 - 4 course meals were delicious and really well prepared with very fresh, local ingredients. There was a first course of soup or pasta, then salad, fish/ meat/ rabbit, and fresh fruit. A very good value for the E10! We felt we were in very good hands in a lovely family setting. Wifi was available on the terrace. We walked to the Poseidon Thermal Park in about 25 minutes and were just sorry we only went for a half day. It was lovely. We arrived directly from the US and Daniela arranged a reasonable transfer for us from the airport which helped so much.

Room Tip: You get a little view of the sea and an excellent view of the Church of the Seccorso from no. 72.

It is a family-owned hotel, it is not big, but very cosy and has a family atmosphere. Owners are very pleasant people who treat all visitors as their own friends and try to meet their wishes. There is an individual approach to everybody, which is hardly to be found in a big hotel.
The room fee includes breakfast and for just 10 euro you can have a nourishing and very tasty dinner of 3-4 courses. The food is really great - Italian cuisine, I think the best food I had during my full trip. The hotel has constant guests who come to this place to stay for many years (e.g. a family from Austria).
A double room is big enough for 2 people, with a balcony, facing the inner yard, and a rather big bathroom.
The hotel is in the Forio centre, 5 minutes walk from the port and a bus stop, this makes it very convenient for travelling.
Poseidon Thermal park is not very close, but still it's possible to walk there or take a bus (5 minutes).
The best I liked: family atmosphere, friendly attitude of owners, very attentive to guests, a very decent room - clean and big enough, great food, good location.
If in Forio again, Villa Mafalda is definitely the right choice. I have already recommended it to all my friends.
I enjoyed my stay there from the very beginning till the end.

A friend who has been in Ischia many times set us up at Pensione Villa Mafalda and we were so happy he did. Our hosts were gracious and the rooms spacious and clean. It's a short walk to the quaint village with its shops and even small grocery stores in town. The price was very reasonable for such a nice place. We enjoyed our breakfast outside since the area is covered and protected. The entrance to the office and restaurant is invitingly attractive with arched greenery as you travel down the stairway. If you choose, you can have an excellent dinner for a modest price. All in all we were very pleased with our 6 night stay and would stay again for sure.

Room Tip: A second floor room balcony gives a better view of the Mountain behind the hotel

Although I lived in Italy and have returned often, I had never been to Ischia. My Neopolitan friend urged me to go there and am I glad I did. I looked on the Internet for an inexpensive place to stay and found Pensione Villa Mafalda on the part of the island called Forio. It is a 10-minute walk to the pier. While it is a no-frills place, the room was perfect (with air-conditioning), and excellent food. The best part of my stay was the family who runs the place: Daniela (mom), her husband and their lovely daughter. They were full of ideas about what to see and very generous in every way. You can't go wrong here.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to be on the second floor. It is definitely a family-type environment.
