    The hotel ist next to the ferry. Breakfast was great and the staff very kindly and helpful. We had a room with sea view and the climate works really good. I would recommend this hotel to everyone.

    These days " older hotels" struggle to accommodate for larger luggage especially when you are travelling international,but this is a small issue for us.

    This hotel is in a perfect location overlooking the beautiful Mediterranean Sea, the rooms were comfortable and spacious and we really enjoyed our stay. The reception staff were extremely good.

    The room was very comfortable and immaculate. I was on the first floor so the view was not so good but I was only staying for one night. The staff were very friendly and the location very good. Only 5 minutes walk to Reggio Lido railway station. Unfortunately, I had to leave very early so I missed out on breakfast but from what I saw, it looked very good. I would definitely be staying here again and I would recommend it to anyone travelling to Reggio Di Calabria. A huge thank you to the staff for a lovely stay 😀

    The location has become a bit rundown but the hotel is fine.

    It is close to the port if you wanted to take your car on the ferry to Sicily but there is no on site parking. We parked in the street for a short period of time before returning it to the hire company at the airport. It is a nice walk to the archaeological museum and along the seafront, close to eating places. Definitely a taxi ride to the central station. Breakfast included. Good size room and bathroom.

    There wasn't anything that didn't meet our expectations. It was described as a serviceable hotel, and that's what it was. For example, the street was dark, but that's not something the hotel can do anything about. It was more than worth the price.

    The receptionist when we checked in gave us a map and excellent directions. The beds were comfortable. The location was great for where we wanted to visit. The buffet breakfast, especially the conneti's (croissants). It had an elevator!!! After all the steps to negotiate with luggage at the train stations, I air-kissed the elevator.

    Unfortunately, it was no English tv channel, but it was not specific thing for this only hotel. All other two hotels / B&B ( in Palermo and Naples ) and Villa Alba, Taormina did not have English channels, and tv in Villa Alba was not working.

    1. Location - only 60 meters from the ferry terminal. 2. Very friendly and helpful men at front desk: Marco and Luidgi. 3. This is the perfect choice for short stay - one or two nights. 4. It was a very good breakfast - something between continental and full, with great coffee machine.

    The only thing was the immediate neighbourhood, which was next to the port. But that location was a major reason why I booked the hotel in the first place. Also, if you walk a hundred metres, you come to nice areas.

    We stayed only one night, but definitely would stay longer! The room was nice and spacious, with very comfortable bed. Clean bathroom. You could have a room with the breakfast or without, but you could order coffee etc. in the bar/lounge area downstairs. The staff was really nice and helpful - pointed out the main attraction and advised all the directions. The hotel is in a perfect location - close walk to the main street, close to the sea and just 2 min walk to the ferries to Messina - just perfect!

    The room itself was dark, bed uncomfortable, hair dryer broken, no possibility to access wifi (router issues on 2 and 3 floor) expect from lobby area. Hotel's surrounding industrial with rather shabby view on "the sea"- it's not a picturesque port. Breakfast could be better if offered bread was fresh, but in general it was OK.

    I really appreciate staff at the hotel, they were really helpful.

    Internet worked for about 5 minutes and then it didn't work for the next 5 hours. I couldn't use the internet at all on the 3 nights I spent at the hotel. Also, the location wasn't very good (next to the port). There was some really weird people around there at night. The receptionist himself told us it would be safer to leave the key to our room at the reception everytime we left the hotel.

    The staff was nice and breakfast was pretty decent.

    Could have been better if slippers were available. But that won't downgrade my overall pleasant experience for the entire stay.

    The staff were all very helpful and friendly. Room was upgraded from single to matrimonial with balcony without extra charges. On check-out, I was surprised that the drinks I consumed from the fridge were not charged and was told that they were complimentary. Location is close to my favorite places- Lungomare/ Promenade, Catholic Church; Piazzas, Corso Garibaldi (for shopping), and other best attractions of the city. Two thumbs up!

    Terrible breakfast even by Italian standards. We failed to realise it wasn't included in the room price, and it was 6 euros each for stale rolls and stale cheese. There is no need to have it, there is a perfectly OK cafe at the port 100 metres away and a really good cafe just a bit further on the way into town. Still the room was good value, but the owners should realise that in a land of fine food and ingredients this is a pretty poor show!

    Friendly staff, comfortable room, near the city centre and the port with a view over the Straits of Messina

    There isn't much near the hotel. I know this isn't a problem associated with the hotel itself but it did detract from the location score. We walked during our stay and everything that we wanted, other than the ferry, was at least four blocks away. The weather was good so this wasn't a big problem but if the weather had not been good then it would have involved driving or a taxi.

    The hotel was clean and the staff helpful. The location near the ferry landing was great.

    The restaurant doesn't have much choice - mainly panini and light food. The key is heavy and sometimes slips out of the electric panel for electricity in your room.

    Room was studio size but still good value.

    Conveniently located near the ferry terminal. Good for a stopover. Good views across the sea to Sicily.
