This hotel is really at best an average bed and breakfast but is not priced as such. In summary, hotel with nice view and garden outside of lipari town, but that does not have enough positives to outweigh the negatives of the establishment. Hosts do not show much interest or skill at running the establishment so we can only assume... More

Dear Guest, Thanks for the compliments and suggestions. Clarifications due: Without the last 50 meters up the street you would not have enjoyed the view over the city and sea, and we are only 400 meters "far" from main street V. Emanuele and 900 meters "far" from the harbour; The breakfast is well stocked and the cakes are "changed and... More

Villa Diana was a great find, similar to staying in narrow streets of New York. Well appointed efficiency rooms with breakfast included. Nice roof top area for afternoon relaxing. Diana and staff were very helpful, finding guide for us to trip around island.

What a charming hotel with spectacular views perched up on a hillside on Lipari. The flowers on the grounds were as spectacular as the view. Breakfast on the patio with the beautiful views was delightful. 2 of our party had to leave early before breakfast was served.....the management arranged to have the breakfast set up early to accommodate them.

We were greeted by the very pleasant father and son on arrival. It is a little out of town with a stunning view of Lipari. If views are your thing this is the place for you; if you don't like walking along what can be a busy road with no pavement/sidewalk, and a bit of noise from the road, this... More

It is quite disconcerting to read such a comment from these people as they didn't say anything negative during most of their stay and clearly said that they enjoyed their stay upon departure. Even when clearly told to leave the room keys at the reception they never did, thus they never went through the reception, as our hotel has a... More

We stayed her for 11 nights. What a location! An artist house, to be surrounded by his paintings was fantastic for an art teacher and an art historian!😃 The views were breath taking, stunning etc. The staff who are mostly Edwin Hunziker's relatives, we're so attentive and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them. But the one person who... More

My wife and I stayed here as we explored the Aeolian Islands as part our honeymoon in Sicily. This little B&B is situated a little above Lipari town, offering spectacular views over the town, the bay, and surrounding area. However, it is close enough (approx. 5mins walk) to the town itself to wander into and explore. The room itself was... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
It's a little hotel realised in 1950 by the swiss painter Edwin Hunziker from an ancient eolian house renovated and enlarged, immersed in the green of a wide garden of citrus and olive trees. Today, it belongs to the artist's family that runs it with the same spirit of simple and warm hospitality of its founder. From its garden and the wide terraces, you can enjoy a view of singular beauty of the sea, the city of Lipari and its acropolis. Thanks to its delightful position, the wide spaces, the peacefulness of the place, Villa Diana is the ideal hotel for relax. The hall and part of the rooms are furnished with antique furniture and a real art gallery of the founder's works. All the comfortable rooms overlook the gardens and the terraces and are equipped with bath or shower, telephone, TV, air conditioning, hairdryer, safe and wi-fi, fridge. The hotel is about 400 meters from the main road and about 1 Km from the harbours and the sea. Private parking, bowling green, and tennis court. ... more   less
