“A nice room on a beautiful island”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2011

We arrived on Stromboli without accommoddation as our plans had changed last minute. There were a handful of people offering rooms to people coming off the hydrofoil, and we took a chance on this. We payed fifty euro for a double room including breakfast, which is a fantastic price. I guess it will cost more in high season. Our luggage was piled on to a golf buggy (there are no cars on Stromboli) and off we went. It felt like we were going a long way away, but there is a one way system so we had to go the long way. It is actually less than a five minute walk to the main piazza, and ten minutes to the port.

The rooms are set up like little cottages, set back with terraces amongst beautiful gardens full of flowers and fruit trees. We only stayed one night, so the small room was fine. The bed was very soft, but we collapsed in to it after climing the volcano and slept like logs! The breakfast terrace is lovely too. I'd happily stay here again, but for longer this time.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2011

We were staying only 2 nights in august. At this time in Stromboli is very difficult to find anything if you decide to stay less than 1 week. Adriano had 2 small rooms for this purpose and at very good price. We loved the place and Adriano was very nice to us. Vasile, the driver and assistant was also very kind. I would absolutely reccomend it.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2011

Place was run by really friendly guy 'Adriano'. He's always at the pier went boat arrives with his branded golf buggy. Went out of his way to do everything required when there. Even walked with us to show us how to get somewhere. Gave good travel advise to see volcano. Rooms are cosy little bungalows, each with table and chairs outside to sit among the garden and listen to the birds. About 10 minute walk to town. Its about 1 hr walk to base of volcano (ask adriano how to get to the pizza restaurant, with views of explosions. From there you can walk upto volcano viewing for free. Don't waste 40 euros each on a walking tour, can get close enough for free. But go at night and take water and rent a head lamp each. Also there is no internet on this island. Do all you need before going there
