We originally chose this hotel for the location for our one night stay - it was an awesome place to stay! The hotel was furnished in a cool, contemporary style, had large rooms, a cozy bar, a good breakfast and a terrific, friendly and extremely helpful owner. Antonio sent us to a terrific restaurant for dinner and the next morning... More

This guest house residence provides great value for money. Clean modern room with comfy bed and great shower facilities plus in room cooking equipment - if needed. The breakfast was a bit basic but nothing wrong with it and the staff very really helpful and spoke great English which made things easy. They gave us excellent restaurant recommendations.

I spent a month in Messina for a study abroad elective and my school set me up with the Guest House. This place was up to par with the American standards I am used to back home, but "Italian enough" to remind me that I wasn't in the US. Antonio, the owner, and his family are wonderful people and gave... More

Our stay was pleasant. The Rooms and bathroom were clean. It was a Reasonable price. Free wifi. Good breakfast. Not very close to main town (we did walk once and the tram stop isn't far but not sure how you get a ticket because you can't on the tram). The rooms were noisy but otherwise the staff tried to make... More

The Guest House was a comfortable place to stay in a city that is not a tourist magnet. It is good value, reasonably basic and accessible by the Tram that runs from the station. There are few shops and restaurants around so you will need to walk around for dinner, although there are some bars close by.

Ending our tour of Sicily we needed a place to stay in Messina before heading to the mainland. Once again, thanks to Trip Advisor, we found the Guest House. Street parking was plentiful and our reception warm and welcoming. As others have said, the rooms are modern and fairly spacious. All was very clean (bathroom included!). The room overlooked the...

After a non-stop 1300 km drive what a relief to arrive at the Guest House Residence and be warmly welcomed: no hassle with paperwork, no need to carry the bags to the room, good advice where to park the car safely, all was great from the first minute.
