    A lovely hillside hotel with beautiful views of the harbour.

    A bit of a walk (15-20 mins) to catch the ferry and visit the Centre of town or a 10 € cab fare. No other way to get to restaurants. As I had the scooter this wasn't an issue. I understand there is a city bus as well but I didn't look into this.

    Great staff and beautiful location overlooking the bay and marina. The room was spacious, very private, had a beautiful veranda, comfortable bed and large bathroom. I was able to rent a motor scooter for the day at a very reasonable rate to tour the island. A modern lift brings you up to the hotel from street level. The free included breakfast was excellent!

    I cannot think of anything.

    The Hotel is perfectly located a short walk from the center of town. Rooms have balconies with stunning views of the harbor. The breakfast is served on a patio overlooking the city. In every detail, the hotel is first rate.

    Location might put some people off as its about 25 min walk from where hydrofoil from Milazzo stops. However there are taxis if this is an issue with luggage etc. Also hotel runs a limited free shuttle service to enable guests to go for evening meal in town and then make own way back.

    Very friendly and helpful owners. Beautiful views over the marina and bay towards Lipari town. Spacious and clean room. Good breakfast with plenty of choice (not always the case in Italy).

    This hotel has the WOW factor.
    • Leisure trip

    Only possible issue would be that guests without a car would have to walk or cab about one KM into Lipari town for dinner. Since we had a car, it was a non-issue for us.

    This hotel has the WOW factor. Our room (the Gemelli) has a 20 foot wide by 14 foot deep balcony overlooking Lipari's marina, harbor and old town as well as the smoldering fumaroles on nearby Vulcano's crater, all from an elevation about 50 feet above the water. Perhaps the best hotel panorama we've ever experienced, and the Gemelli terrace is larger than many Manhattan apartments. Easy street parking below, with an elevator to hotel level. Breakfast on terrace was delightful. Staff was great as well, the breakfast cappuccino just kept on flowing. Will never forget that view from the terrace. Even got up at dawn one morning to see the view at sunrise, which of course was great. One of our most memorable hotel stays ever.

    Views across harbour fantastic.
    • Leisure trip
    • Couple

    Room advertised at just over €150 per night reduced from over €1000 per night. This was misleading as hotel was not that exclusive. However rooms / apts were decent with great outside area for a wine and relax. Also note there is a bus service or short walk into town rather than the expensive taxi that is suggested.

    Views across harbour fantastic.

    Wifi was not always perfect, but all-in-all it was usually decent. Bed and pillows were not the most comfortable, although we stayed one night in another room which did have a really comfortable bed.

    Nice hotel and responsive staff. Good views, good property, very clean.

    Wifi did not Work in the room.

    We spent three nights in this small hotel (12 rooms) all with terrace and sea views. Service is attentive and always delivered with a smile. Reception is helpful with reservation of restaurants and activities. Breakfast served on the terrace with variety of fruits and pastries. The Hotel is 3km from downtown Lipari, we only used transport at arrival / departure because if luggage, otherwise walked and enjoyed the view. Recommended!

    The way into the village is not quite long, but there is no space to walk along the street, so it is quite risky, as Italians like to go a bit faster... and a taxi cost 10 € for 800 m turn, so we decided to walk and pray.

    Stunning view from the Breakfast terrace over the sea and the hole village. Very nice and friendly staff and nice and clean rooms with air-conditioning.
