Nice property in an excellent location. Great staff and comfortable and spacious room. Only issue was that, while the hotel advertises itself as non-smoking, the first room they brought us to reeked of smoke. They quickly changed our room, but the manager admitted they have a problem controlling their guests’ smoking. This needs correction!

Older style hotel right the centre of Reggio, just opposit the museo nazionale. Rooms are decorated in style with a small balcony with partial view of the sea. Staff are very helpful: I broke my glasses and they left no stone unturned to help me repair them - it was a sunday. I left some important things in my room upon check out, returned 4 hours later - found, no problem. Thank you, room maid for room 405! Had dinner at the restaurant, very expensive, good service. Some negatives - dinner, the insalata mista consisted mainly of mais (it should not be called salad). The sepia was too hard. These complaints relate inky to the price if the meal. - breakfast service was poor. Slow in cleaning tables, very small selection - sliced cheese, ham and prosciutto. Ham and prosciutto were finished (or almost) on each of my 3 days there and I had to ask to replenish. I also had to ask for coffee on the first 2 days, on the third day there was noone to ask, so no coffee at all (couldn't wait, check-out time).

Great location for the museum and ferry. Outdated style from 1970s and 80s. Clean and comfortable.

Dining room with breathtaking beautiful views of Sicily, The Straits of Messina and Reggio di Calabria. The proximity of the hotel to the walk along the seafront. The fabulous Archaeological Museum, is right beside it. The railway station is just across the road, ferries to Sicily are a short train journey .
