When we arrived there was a broken pipe and our room was unavailable. Cascaro sent us to a lovely competing hotel for the first night. It was a great place and we got a different view of Lipari. We returned the next day and enjoyed lunch, the pool, the bar lounge, great rooms and excellent staff. This is a place... More

Located at the southern part of Lipary, 5 min by car from the arbor, 15 min walking, the reception is on floor 1, restaurant on floor 2, swimming pool on floor 0. Nice view on the sea, which also accessible from the hotel. The room is of medium size, bathroom OK (shower), small balcony. Restaurant has tables outside but protected,... More

The staff at the reception dont speak english very well, didnt show us to our room, didnt explain the hotel facilities etc. We ordered lunch at the restaurant which took them 40 mins (!!) to bring us.. Even the starters. When it eventually came, the quality was poor. We also wanted to order a coffee by the pool in the... More

The staff were really friendly, be that on reception, or in the restaurant. Rooms were clean, and those with sea views worth the extra money. The food was fine, good choice of fresh food at breakfast, and the lunch and evening menus were typical Italian fare. It was quite quiet when we stayed (last week of July), so perhaps we... More

I have been reading some of the most recent reviews and, frankly, I am starting to wonder whether I have been in the same hotel with some of the other reviewers. The hotel was certainly built in the early 70s and that can be seen, but it is nonetheless very well kept with all the comforts that you would expect... More

The location of the hotel is beautiful and spectacular, such a shame that the service and accommodation are so sub-standard. Our room was reasonably sized with antique type furnishings, the bathroom was narrow, dark and tiny, you could barely bend in the shower. Hard to get enough hot water to even feel warm. The bed was very hard and no... More

There is no doubt that this classic 60s style hotel occupies the best position of any hotel on Lipari, perched on a cliff near Lipari Town. However, you'll need to take a taxi from the port or - as I found out much later - contact the hotel to arrange the shuttle to meet you, as it's a good 20... More

Dear SoDizzy, Thank you very much for your review which mostly reflects our intentions: maintaining a place full of atmosphere and character, letting people understand what tourism might have been in the Aeolian Islands in 70s but giving them all the opportunities of modern times. We do indeed offer all you said and more: free wifi, excursions to all the... More

We stayed 4 nights in this hotel. It was ok but not great. The wifi was said to work only in the reception area but it did also work occasionally in the rooms. Breakfasts were ordinary by hotel standards with limited choice if you did not like cakes and tarts. Service was good and people attentive. Room cleaning was basic... More

Quite disappointed with this hotel, just a little too far to walk to the two central ports even though it is well positioned directly in front of the sea. The entire hotel could do with some investment. Wifi is only available in the lobby or so I was told. My bedroom was 'too far' away to get service. The bed... More

5 stars for the location, but it's like the place hadn't been touched since the 70's. 20 minute walk from town, the rooms were dark with no minibar/coffee facilities or even drinking water. Bar downstairs was never manned and you had to use the phone on the bar to get a drink. No towels around the pool. No daytime restaurant... More
