Stayed here several years and it was great. Somewhat disappointed this time around. Paint was peeling and some mildew in the shower. The breakfast was nowhere near what it once was. On the plus side the staff was fantastic.

"Very disappointing and uncomfortable; not 4 stars"
This hotel was a big disappointment. They had recently remodeled, and it was clean, but the choices made in the remodel made for a very uncomfortable bathroom. 1) This hotel had the tiniest shower stall of any hotel I encountered on my 3-week Sicilian trip, and most hotels I stayed in were 2 stars! The shower drain was blocked and flooded after about one minute. I told the desk, but it took until the next day to fix it. 2) The toilet violently sprayed water all over the toilet seat and floor and anyone standing near it. Thus, the toilet seat was constantly wet... yuck. 3) The toilet paper dispenser was the locking kind that rations you to one square at a time. Just like high school. Other problems included... The AC was basically nonfunctional because it was so weak. And worse, it only worked when the key was in the panel, so you returned to a burning hot room and it never got cooled off. There was no Do Not Disturb sign for the door. When we arrived, we had two burned out light bulbs which I unscrewed and left on the bed for replacement; they were thrown out but not replaced. This hotel is definitely a far cry from 4 star service!! So, even though it was clean and remodeled, it was one of the most unpleasant hotels of my vacation. I feel bad they remodeled and put in such horrible showers and toilets. Should note: it has a nice location on the waterfront and 15 minute walk to the ferries. Also, there is no "private beach" or beach at all.

"Terrific, well located hotel"
Stayed 3 nights although had planned to only stay 1. Terrific location for what we wanted to do in Milazzo. Hotel is clean and quaint and of great value. Staff, although not proficient in English, were good to deal with. Breakfast was satisfactory. Parking, if you can, was right at the door on the street. We were a short drive to Capo Milazzo, 20 minute walk to the port and 20 minute walk (straight up) to "the castle". Local fishermen worked directly across the street. The IL Principe offered us a lot of local flavor by being in that location.

"Covers the necessities for a short trip."
Il Principe is located perfectly, right on the sea front at the northwestern edge of the bay giving access both to daily fish markets, the castle and the town centre with only a short drive to Capo Milazzo. The hotel covers all needs but is fairly basic the biggest downside was the air conditioning being very noisy. We didnt experience the wellness suite but the rooftop spa was shut which was a didappointment. All in all I would recommend this for a one night stop over but not a longer trip.

"Quite nice"
The hotel is clean and comfortable. The first room we were sent to had no windows and was strangely kitted out to look like some kind of ship. Really odd! And very, very oppressive. The gym and "spa" were unplugged/switched off. We used the gym but were told it was extra to use the spa (in a way that suggested they would really rather we didn't bother) - which was in any case switched off. As a family of four we had two rooms (one for the kids) which weren't particularly close together - and one of the rooms was very pokey. But it was nice enough - provided you are out and about all day. Perhaps one more suited to the more mature customer.

"Luxuriöses Stadthotel mit Meerblick"
Wir wurden äußerst freundlich empfangen, das Hotel und das Zimmer sind luxuriös ausgestattet. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Wir hatten direkten Meerblick und konnten früh die Fischer beobachten, die Ihren Fisch verkauften. Das Frühstück war in Ordnung und der Service sehr bemüht, unsere Wünsche zu erfüllen. Wir können das Hotel auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen. Einziger Minuspunkt sind die Mengen an Tauben, die einen davon abhalten, den Balkon zu benutzen. Hier sollte evtl. etwas auf dem Dach unternommen werden...

Ståtligt hotell alldeles vid vid vattnet. Vårt rum var jättefint och prydligt. Vi pratade inte jättemycket med receptionen men de behärskade i alla fall engelska. Frukosten var bra för italiensk standard. Det enda vi har att klaga på var att duschens stråle var stenhård. Vi rekomenderar starkt detta hotell!

La colazione ottima e con prodotti di qualità; l'unico appunto è per il personale della colazione che non riusciva a rifornire velocemente tutti i prodotti finiti ed alcuni ospiti dovevano attendere. Possibilità di parcheggio di fronte all'hotel. Ci tornerei sicuramente.

"Komfortables Stadthotel in guter Lage"
Wir hatten ein Zimmer wie auf einer Yacht, mit Netzen, Masten, Bullaugen und einer Schatztruhe. Jedes Zimmer hat ein eigenes Motto, nachdem ein Designer das Zimmer aufwendig und ideenreich gestaltet hat. Die Zimmer sind sehr luxuriös ausgestattet, mit beleuchteten Lichtschaltern, elektronisch bedienbare Dachfenster mit Außen- und Innenrollos, hervorragender Klimaanlage und Steckdosen für Stecker aus verschiedenen Ländern. Das Frühstück ist leider ideenlos und langweilig präsentiert, das Obst kommt aus der Dose. Das Abendessen sieht lecker aus und duftet vorzüglich. Leider ist das Personal im Restaurant aber überfordert. Die Gerichte kommen nicht gleichzeitig auf den Tisch, Getränke werden vergessen man bekommt schon mal den Nachtisch vor dem Hauptgericht, wenn man nicht eischreitet. Im Gegensatz dazu ist das Personal an der Rezeption kompetent, freundlich und löst auch das etwas komplizierte Parkplatz Problem, z. B. durch stündliches Nachdrehen der Parkscheibe.

"Perfektes Hotel für Ausflüge"
Wir nutzten das Hotel für diverse Ausflüge. Die sehr gute Lage zum Stadtzentrum und Hafen (ca. 1 Km) eröffnet zahlreiche Möglichkeiten, zu Fuß z.B. die allabendliche Passeggiata (ein Erlebnis), die zahlreichen Bars (z.B. Emozioni Enecoteca, Via S. Giovanni 57) und Restaurants (z.B. Il Bagato Via Regis), das Castello sowie den Anleger zur Überfahrt zu den Eolischen Inseln zu erreichen. Die Rezeption ist 24 h besetzt, wir konnten also (nach Anmeldung) auch noch um 01.00 Uhr unser gebuchtes , sehr sauberes Zimmer beziehen. Alle Angestellten sind sehr freundlich, die gute Fee Nelly versorgte uns bestens gelaunt jeden Morgen mit einem, für italienische Verhältnisse, sehr gutem Frühstück (Kuchenauswahl, Brioche,frische Brötchen, Schinken, Salami, Käse, Marmeladen, Honig, versch. Joghurt, Müsli,Säfte, Wasser,Kaffee). Den Kieselstrand von Milazzo an der Costa Ponente (hier ist übrigens jeden Donnerstag Markt) erreicht man jedoch am besten mit dem Auto. Allein die Parkplätze sind ein kleines, jedoch meistens lösbares Problem. Es gibt keine reservierten Buchten, man stellt das Fahrzeug ab, wo Platz ist (Achtung: kostenfrei sind nur die mit weißer Markierung versehen Stellplätze, diese nur mit Parkscheibe für eine Stunde. Das Hotel stellt jedoch auf Nachfrage eine Parklizenz der Stadt zur Verfügung). Alles in allem ein sehr gelungener Urlaub in einem sehr guten Hotel Il Principe - wir kommen bestimmt wieder!

Séjour agréable de huit jours à Milazzo, dans cet hôtel propre, joliment décoré et bien situé. Par contre, le jardin n'est pas tout à fait un jardin mais plutôt une jolie cour avec un bac à poissons et deux bancs en pierre. Dommage que le petit-déjeuner soit servi dans une pièce sombre, sans fenêtre. Personnel très courtois mais accueil formel et règles assez strictes.

Ho soggiornato con la mia regazza all'hotel "Il principe" di Milazzo per 2 notti approfittando della posizione strategica di Milazzo per visitare le isole Eolie, Taormina e Tindari. In questo hotel ci siamo trovati davvero bene, camere molto pulite e spaziose, bagni altrettanto. Buona la colazione. Il personale è stato davvero gentile, anche nell'indicarmi all'una di notte la farmacia che effettuava il servizio notturno (fornendomi anche la cartina della città ed evidenziandomi il percorso da fare). Unica pecca è la posizione che non è proprio centralissima (le vie del centro sono raggiungibili percorrendo il lungomare per una decina di minuti a piedi o 2 - 3 minuti di auto). Che dire, se mi dovesse ricapitare di soggiornare a Milazzo questo hotel sarà sicuramente la prima scelta.

"Una delusione rispetto le aspettative"
Ci hanno assegnato una camera a piano rialzato che affacciava in un vicolo dove vi sono i tavoli di un ristorante, per cui, avendo soggiornato di sabato vi è stato un chiacchiericcio fino alle tre di notte nonostante la finestra chiusa. Per di più, vi era l'aria condizionata molto rumorosa e quindi abbiamo passato la notte ad attaccare e staccare quest'aria per dormire un pò. Se proprio volete andare a questo albergo evitate la camera 102.

"Niedliches kleines Hotel direkt am Wasser"
Meine Freundin und ich waren für 7 Tage in Milazzo zum Urlauben. Wir wollten bewusst in einem typisch italienischen Ort ohne viel Tourismus und haben auch genau das angefunden. Es ist ein wundervoller Ort an dem man gute italienische Küche bekommt. Zudem hat man die Möglichkeit am Hafen von Milazzo Touren zu buchen zu den Eolischen Inseln - sehr zu empfehlen. Eine Woche in Urlaub ist vollkommen ausreichend, da man dann definitiv alles gesehen hat. Das Hotel ist super gelegen direkt am Wasser. Frühmorgens verkaufen die Fischer ihren frischen Fisch.

It was the nicest hotel in the area and a great surprise. The room and bathroom were a decent size and the location was perfect. Slightly away from all the hustle and bustle but close enough to walk anywhere, It has an incredible view of the bay with all the ships and the breakfast was great. The bed was so comfortable and the room was quiet. The staff were great too. We loved this hotel.

"True Sicilian Setting"
08/22/15 Smhd2020 United States
My family and I have visited Sicily many times, since I was born in a small town outside of Milazzo, a treasure all in itself. My entire family stayed at this hotel in 2008 and were extremely pleased with everything the hotel had to offer... water view, comfort, AC, breakfast, and much more. We recently returned for a family wedding and found that some of the above mentioned amenities were lacking. My room had pealing paint, as did some of my other family members' rooms, the AC was not efficient, the breakfast was not as good as in 2008, and the Wifi could only be had if sitting in the lobby. The staff in the lobby was extremely helpful and tried to answer all our questions! I was impressed with the lone waitress in the morning ...she held it together when serving all the hot beverages. I hope the hotel works out the kinks, since it is located in a prime location. With all this, I would still recommend this hotel when visiting northern Sicily.

Helpful staff. Good linens. Convenient for port and waterfront walking. Great A/C. The shower has a foot massager in it but don't drop the soap, you will not be able to bend to pick it up. Breakfast adequate. A little tired but the air conditioning made it all worthwhile.

"Comfortable and convenient"
06/02/15 Amber665 Birmingham
We stayed at this hotel for one night on our way out to Stromboli and found a clean and spacious hotel with marble floors. We were given a 'suite' room which was large and had a sofa as well as a very big and comfortable bed. The decor was a bit elaborate and the sofa was underneath the TV, but we don't go on holiday to watch TV. The bathroom was a separate room to one side and was well equipped, apart from the relatively small shower cubicle which would have been too compact for larger people. The air con was very noisy so we switched it off at night and left the windows open. This wasn't a problem as the temperature wasn't too hot, but it could be in the high summer. Breakfast was good and had a variety of breads, cold meat and cheese. There were also cereals and sweet pastries as well as jams and spreads. Cold drinks, juices and water were also available, but hot drinks had to be ordered. They said we could leave our bags there for a few hours before our ferry left, but the hotel is at the other end of the seafront, so would have involved a longer walk back. The staff spoke English and were polite and helpful.

The hotel is very well located. The room was very clean and big. The large bed had very white sheets and comfortable pillows. The bathroom had a wonderful shower . Some little details as the light switches and plugs near the bed make the difference. The only problem found there was that the wifi was very weak in the bedroom which made us go to the common areas to access it but for sure all the rest made it worth to stay there !

the only positive thing of this hotel is the position and the location. the superior room is not so superior,too dark and the shower in the bathroom was really old with rust,the spa is too small,too dark and you can t see anything when you go inside the emotional shower.I asked several thing to the receptionists and it was like none listen to me,I asked 3 times for my bottle of prosecco and at least I got it at 11.pm after my fiancee went for the last time to the reception.the wi-fi connection and mobile phone doesn t work,but if you bring the computer near the reception maybe you can have some chance to got it.the breakfast is poor.only sweet sometimes burnt.

"Clean, comfortable & with character"
04/17/12 TravellersTale001 England
I've stayed twice in this hotel for one-night business trips only (both in spring, so not peak season), and found it pretty good. Rooms are modern, very comfortable, and spotlessly clean. Decor is rather over-the-top, but at least has some character - it could never be described as bland! Breakfast is a little limited by international standards, but typical Italian & the quality is good. I was very happy with the Wi-Fi on my visits - may have been lucky with the rooms I was in. Staff are friendly and speak some English (not much when I've been there, but enough to get by). There was only one bizarre incident of poor service on my last trip to spoil the record, when the girl on reception called me at 4.00am on the room phone to ask for my passport! She had not taken it the evening before when I offered it at check-in (I think she thought I was already registered on the system), but for some reason was determined she needed it right away. I protested that in the morning would be good enough, but she insisted she needed it right then, saying "police!", so I had to get up and get dressed to go and hand it over. No sign of police but she did phone someone. Her colleague on the desk the next morning was apologetic and as puzzled as I was about why it was needed at 4am and couldn't wait till breakfast time... Not a recommendation for good service, but hopefully a bizarre one-off. I'd certainly be happy to stay there again.

"Hotel Il Principle Milazzo Absolutely Great"
03/07/12 Paul Q Rome, Italy
We spent a great long weekend at this wonderful place on the water at Milazzo. It was the best place we stayed at in Sicily over several trips over the last four years. The rooms were beautiful; extremely well maintained, fantastic furniture and furnishings, a short walk to everything of interest. Antonio behind the desk was very helpful. We highly recommend it as a weekend geataway or base for longer stays; really impressed. It is also small and cosy and well worth the four star rating and better than many five star places we have stayed at. Hotel is proud of its Trip Advisor status and really deserves it.
