Nice and simplePosted Apr 22, 2015 on Hotels
Fine hotel. But hotels.com says that the usual price is £600. There is no way. This is a lovely simple hotel run by very nice people

Just perfect!Posted Aug 18, 2014
Pros: Fantastic, super-friendly staff. Lovely view of the ocean from our room. Charming decor. Free shuttle pick-up service. Good location. Great value.
Cons: Aeolian towns are a little hilly (mild) - not a problem for most, but travellers with mobility concerns check on this beforehand wherever you stay
Location: Very convenient for Lipari town and marinas. Pretty cove at the front. Try Grotta del Saraceno restaurant nearby.
We booked to stay at the Baia Portinenti as part of our honeymoon trip to the Aeolians and, although it seems a bit of a cliché to say it, every aspect of our trip was utterly fantastic. We couldn’t have asked for more. The staff at the hotel are absolutely exceptional - really kind, friendly and more than helpful. They made us feel totally at home, despite the fact that our Italian is practically non-existent, and really went out of their way to help make our trip hassle-free (which included helping us book excursions, check weather reports for Stromboli, use their internet for online check-in for our return journey and providing a free and reliable shuttle service on both arrival and departure). The hotel itself has a great atmosphere and bags of character too - our room was very spacious and the beautiful décor throughout was very warm and romantic. We also had a balcony with a view of the ocean where we could sit sipping local wine and watching the yachts in the little cove below - what a privilege! The free breakfast was a bonus and very handy for those heading out on tours - and the coffee and pastries are particularly good. The hotel is also only about a 5-10 minute stroll from all the main shops and restaurants in Lipari and both marinas, so perfectly situated and very convenient for anything you might want to do (unlike maybe Acquacalda or Canneto areas). Lovely hotel, lovely staff. Wholeheartedly recommended! Thank you Baia Portinenti for a very memorable stay.

Gutes hotel etwas abseitsPosted Jul 7, 2014
Pros: Aussicht aufs Meer, Sauberes und großes Zimmer
Cons: Mehr Abwechslung beim Frühstück
Location: ca. 10 Minuten vom Lipari Fährhafen weg, ziemlich zentrale Lage nähe fußgängerzone und zu Fuß erreichbar
in ca. 10 minute ist man zu Fuß am Hotell. Aber wenn man vorher dort anruft wird man auch abgeholt. Auberes und großes Zimmer hatten wir. Das Frühstück ist ok aber nicht überragend, der Kaffee super. sehr hoilfreiches Personla, teilweise englischsprachig. Für eine Woche ist das Hotell voll in Ordnung, aber es hat nur einen kleinen Whirlpool, was wir aber nicht benutzten.

Personlig och proffsig servicePosted Feb 18, 2014 on Hotels
Det var svårt att hitta hotellet via gps. Vi ringde vid 10-tiden på kvällen och blev mycket proffsigt bemött. "Stanna där ni är, jag kommer och hämtar er" svarade värdinnan glatt. Servicen och bemötandet var perfekt. Rummet var stort med fin balkong och sjöglimt.

residence tranquilloPosted Sep 7, 2013
Pros: Le stanze grandi e ben arredate
Cons: Assortimento colazione
Location: E' in posizione periferica, vicinissima al mare e tranquillissima, ma per andare in centro bisogna scarpinare.
Stanze grandi, ottima pulizia, personale disponibile e affabile. Situato in una zona tranquilla, forse un po' lontana dal centro. Questo potrebbe essere un problema, perché il residence non ha il ristorante e quindi bisogna sempre uscire per mangiare, anche quando c'è maltempo. Colazione non molto ricca. Manca una piscina, c'è solo una Jacuzzi in giardino.

ok hotel, probably better in-seasonPosted Mar 15, 2012
Just to caveat this review, we stayed here in the 1st week of March which was somewhat out of season, the weather was a bit miserable and no-one else was staying in the hotel. The positives: the woman who ran the hotel was incredibly helpful and even offered to drop us to the port very early in the morning. The negatives: breakfast was limited, the room not particularly quiet - not really helped by the feuding cats outside in the middle of the night. Lipari itself is a fairly small town and it's quite easy to get around.

We were greeted warmly and got some really valuable information directly at the reception. Very friendly and helpful staff! Very good value och only a short walk from the shops and restaurants!
