the rooms were spacious and it was within walking distance to the station and ferry the shower wasn't attached to the wall and wobbled when being used. It also took some time for the hot water to come through. The receptionist did't seem to know much English and couldn't give specific directions on where to find things in town.
The room itself was great
convenient to the port in Reggio Calabria the staff spoke no English
close to harbour not enough info from desk re bus numbers, timetables of museums etc
Friendly and generous staff. Difficult to find good restaurants around but the best to continue my trip on ferry,it's just 100 meters away from the port. Poor surroundings,no restaurant at all. Taxi from train station ripped me off with 20 €. because if by bus, I got to walk with heavy luggage.
I answered to this question in in question 1 :) No
The manager, Saverio, was absolutely excellent (and speaks very good English). Nothing was too hard and always helpful. The breakfast was one of the best we've had in 6 weeks. Room was spacious and very clean. A little tricky to find, but our Tom Tom did well. Free parking is outside the hotel and sometimes it was difficult to get one but we always managed.
The staff was multi-lingual, very friendly and professional. The hotel was clean and comfortable. It was also close to the start of the promenade that went alongside the water. The breakfast in the morning was very good. We liked this hotel so much that we have since stayed at it again.
The room was very roomy with a large bathroom and clean. The staff were very helpful. No internet access. Not in a very nice area.
Room with large terrace (6th floor), location is close to train and bus station and to city center too. Good breakfast. It's not 4 stars hotel at all. Rooms needs renovation. WiFi is unreally expansive.
clean hotel in the neigbourhoodof harbor and railwaystation to the railway station
The location of the hotel is excellent for the ferry to Italy, and the staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent.
Location is perfect. There is no drive up space to unload your car; none. Only seasoned travelers should select this one.
Perfect location in the city for my purpose. Well organised and good quality/price ratio.
It is very close to the central station. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, you feel that you are in a luxury hotel. The view is fantastic from the balconz of the hotel.
Close to train station and ferry port. Room is never cleaned! Floor is so dirty ,just check your slippers everyday! The pillows are damp and smelly.No heater and surroundings is so filthy. The air is filled with dust everywhere!
The staff were polite, friendly and helpful. However, they were trying to provide a good service with totally inadequate facilities. This was posted as a 4 star hotel. It may have been so in the 1960s but it appeared that there had been minimal or no investment for many years. So the whole place looked tired (or rather exhausted). Frayed carpets, cigarette burns in furniture etc etc.
.Our room was spacious and comfortable. and spotlessly clean.The bathroom was large and well equipped..The restaurant staff were very helpful in advising on local specialities and wines.The Reception staf were pleasant and happy to suply directions.And the location was excellent.for us ,train travellers! nothing really. we would stay there again..I was somewhat surprised about the negative reviews on your website as the hotel met our expectations.
Well appointed rooms and a very good restaurant on the top floor overlooking the straits of Messina. The atmosphere is that of a typical business or conference hotel, there were two conferences going on while we were there. Parking a car on the streets around the hotel is impossible. The hotel has an underground garage for a limited number of cars. However the access is not for the faint hearted... The garage as noted above
The view from the room The WiFi did not work in the room
We liked most the cleaness and the friendly staff. We also liked the rooms they were very comfortable and had good furniture. The hotel is located direct next to the motorway. It was impossible to open the window.
Five stars for a four star hotel! Beautiful facility and friendly staff.
Free parking. Free wi-fi. Restaurant. Close to highway, so very easy to reach Messina (by car) avoiding the city centre traffic mess. Close to the road, therefore a bit noisy. Although sea view, far from being the best one. Breakfast should be richer.
it's so close to the seaside that you could dive into directly from the balcony
Good seafood restaurants around. Opposite train station but so difficult to drag luggage up to the platform. Not much to see,one night here should be enough for the whole Scilla!
Very good rooms, good breakfast, near the rail way station near the rail way station, difficult to open the windows at night, a little bit noizy
Most of all: the location, very convenient when in transit, probably not so nice when on a citytrip. Then the price. Staff is very friendly.
Staff was very friendly.We had dinner at the hotel restorant for 18 ERO Good privet parking.If planing to stay one night , it is good value for money. Not so nice area.No internet accsess in the rooms only one computer next to the bar on the lobby for free..Elevators are very small and smell bad.
Price, parking, breakfast Stained carpet in the room gave a feeling of dirtiness
Problem with the internet service.
It was just ok. The staff at the reception desk was not very nice (especially during check out - it would really be nice to hear at least 'good morning', you felt like an intruder there). Internet was supposed to be available in the rooms according to the booking.com description - it wasn't, only an internet point on the ground floor.
Fantastic furniture & artifacts - like a museum. Best view
Beautiful location, friendly owners. Restful. Near the ferry port, yet far enough away to be "in another world."
The view, the relaxing swing overlooking the Strait of Messina, the English speaking hostess The barking dogs outside & the noise from the high-rise apartment complex nearby - neither one controllable by our host & hostess
the view of the bay the hotel needs to do a lot of fixing in order to become 3 star hotel. No breakfast was served .we reserved this 3 star hotel hoping we will have a breakfast as was promised in bookings.....The room needs modern appliances
Very friendly owners. Nice location. It seem to have a nice view and some enjoyable yard, which I couldn't apreciate due to a terrible storm. Although the owners are very nice, I hardly can call them "staff" - they received me, accepted the payment and gave me a cup of coffee, and that's about it - and there's nobody else around, so I can't rate "staff" as good.
unfortunately we had cold water, because the gas bottle was empty, but the manager was very nice and reduced the price, the beds are very old ....
despite advertisement, no wireless internet access available,
Very nice Hotel, clean rooms, very nice pool and spa, pleasant staff, However you need to pay extra for the use of the Pool and Spa not mentioned in Web site or by staff until checkout. This is a bummer as you get charged hefty sums. This pissed us off, Beware.... However you need to pay extra for the use of the Pool and Spa not mentioned in Web site or by staff until checkout.

Overall a nice hotel think best is in summer time , verry nice garden reception and quite nice personal
If I have known that the hotel was so far situated from Messina, I would not have choosen it. My gps refused the nr 1965 in messina, and I had to ask many times some peope before I found the hotel
the stuff was nice and kind' helping with information needed breakfast was good although lacking of veggies of any kind
The location was ok. It wasn't anything like online. We got stuck in a room not even on the site. I was looking for a romantic get away for 2 days and we got...the smallest cheapest room. We asked for an upgrade...it wasn't comfortable at all...it was smaller.
Very friendly staff with some English spoken. No Restaurant in building but arrangement with good establishments very close to Hotel.
A comfortable hotel with reasonable facilities given it's size. The spa/pool centre next door was good although there was an extra cost to use this. We liked the pizzeria 10 mins walk from the hotel and the Le Vecchie Mura steak (and everything else) house even closer, but set out of sight of the road. The road outside was quite noisy occasionally due to young 'motorists' and their music. The nearby lake side area of Ganzirri could be beautiful but is spoilt by be very dirty and frequently jammed with traffic; none of this is the hotel's fault however.
Pleasant staff , good service , parking , some rooms are really nice lack of a common use computer for travelers ... most other hotels had one on my trip
