Messina is one of those cities that I have always wanted to visit. It has a history dating back to the 8th Century BC when it was developed by the Greeks and has a Greek name. The hotel is on main street not far from a square. Reception staff were excellent looking after us and giving advice. The room was...

The staff was very helpful when we asked for informations about the city of Messina and about helping us to find our friend living in Messina. We were very satisfied with the breakfast in the mornings. The staff in the breakfast-room was very polite and helpful. In short: The best service we've ever had!

On the plus side: close to the rail station in Messina; our room was spacious and clean. The desk staff were very welcoming and superbly helpful. We were given a discount rate without booking in advance. WiFi and breakfast were free! OK, the rooms have furniture and decor from the 1960's. If you like the "Mad Men" series, you might...

Near the station, this hotel has been pleasant to stay in. I think it must have been built in the 70s, so it's interesting architecturally. Although the building is from the 70s, the fittings have been updated. The breakfast is great and the staff really helpful. It doesn't have the sterility of a lot of modern hotels. I have stayed...

The hotel is convenient for rail travellers. The rooms are large and the breakfast is still good as ever. The hotel is convenient for the central area of the town. This was our third stay in the past 3 years would not even look for an alternative in Messina as the price we have has always been reasonable.

How anyone could have given this hotel A positive review is beyond me! The only positive I can tell you is that the staff was pleasant. This hotel is rundown the rooms are dark musty and depressing.

We only had 1 night at this hotel. It is very close to the railway station - just exit the station and turn left for 70 metres then right for about 100 metres then left and within a few metres look to your right and you will see the hotel. You do not need a cab to walk to it....
