We stayed here for 1 night with 18 students and the location was by far our favourite. Feels like a secluded island with empty beaches and gorgeous black sand/pebbles for a beach. The hotel was very nice inside, all the rooms were a decent size and all had working air-conditioning, the only hotel during our week to have that!

We were given a packed lunch for our evening trek up the volcano, a gorgeous ham and cheese baguette with an apple and bottle of water. Breakfast was our favourite of the week, fresh fruit, bread rolls and cereal all on offer.

In summary, this hotel was a disappointment and if you're staying on Stromboli for several nights I would avoid it. I note several reviews here highlight the hotel has a superb location. Considering Stromboli is a very small place other hotels are within walking distance so I don't think that location is such a big asset in this case.

- Staff with acceptable English skills
- Clean and fairly spacious rooms
- Reliable air conditioning
- Reliable Wi-Fi considering the location, don't expect any high speeds though

- Beds are cheap and extremely uncomfortable. You get a thin mattress on a wooden board. In other words you may just as well be sleeping on the floor. To me, a comfortable place to sleep is one of the most important things that a good hotel should provide. Hotel Ossidiana fails miserably at this.
- Rooms are not very sound proof
- Staff needs to improve their overall service level. If you have any special requests be prepared to argue your case.
- Breakfast buffet is limited and has more sweets than actual breakfast food. Though this is normal for this part of Europe I presume.
- Lobby and other common areas are not air conditioned.
- No refrigerator in the room

Currently staying in room 107 which has a lovely sea view terrace. Reception and bar staff very friendly and helpful, one girl even brought us up coffee last night.
Breakfast is good,the one big downside is the noise first thing in the morning. Around 6.30am scooters/little vans start up so don’t expect a lazy lie in!

Enjoyed the stay. It's convenient for the arrival port. We were placed in an annexe a few hundred metres from the hotel reception. We were two couples together and had rooms next to each other with a shared entry and balcony and an area in front just behind the beach for relaxing and eating.

Positive: good location practical to take the ferry. Negatives: not customer oriented, unfriendly staff (only negative experience in Sicily in a 2 weeks trip), unorganized and sub-standard breakfast (Instant coffee served!).
