Good spoken English by the efficient staff . The rooms also modern and very ergonomic. A lot of towels and spotlessly clean. The breakfast high quality. You will not find salami and mozzarella but fresh pastry with...

My girlfriend and I stayed 3 days. The hotel takes place at the east side of the port which is still close to every restaurant or shopping store. The rooms are quite big, pretty, very clean and very stylish. Also we had balcony to the port view. Not really much to see. In our deal we ate breakfast and it...

We stayed at this hotel because it is close to the ferries to the Aeolian islands. Here are a few things I wanted to share with fellow travelers. 1. The hotel is beautifully decorated. It has a great modern feel with great paintings and furnishing. 2. We visited in June. While it wasn't sweltering it was warm. The first night...

We didn't expect a lot from Milazzo, and planned just to visit the islands, so the Hotel La Bussola was a very pleasant surprise - the room was very comfortable and with a lovely balcony overlooking the port. The bed was very comfortable and the shower fantastic! Dinner at the hotel restaurant was delicious and not too expensive. Car parking...

This place is hell ... diabolical, unsympathitic, cold interior design, which pales into insignificance against the attitude of the staff. Never have I passed a more uncomfortable night or been more grateful for a 5am wake up call, allowing us to escape. The air conditioning was broken and our airless room stuck at around 30 degrees. The receptionist was utterly...
