Nice place close to the HighwayPosted Dec 5, 2013
They gave us a nice room away from the Highway with a good view. The restaraunt was nice but not much else to do in town for one night during the off season.

Location outside Messina, quite areaPosted Oct 25, 2013
The staff is extremely helpful by showing us the way to Punto Blue in Google map, as we miss to pay the toll and worry about the penalty. Breakfast was good, room was clean! Close to Supermarket.

Very Good ValuePosted Oct 18, 2013
Pros: 2 staff gave outstanding help by calling the car rental company for us, they conversed in Italian and solved our problem,excellent client service
Cons: Hotel property is great but the area is a bit run down, however they can't do anything about that.
Location: Location was good for visiting Vallei dei Templei
I found this to be excellent value for money. It had a small kitchen area, it was clean, and looked very nice, and was a great location for a stop to see the Vallei dei Templei, half way between Trapani and Syracusa on our trip around Sicily.The large balcony had a great view of the seaside, and there was a drying rack which was a big help to dry my handwashing. Breakfast buffet was very good, and the art on the walls was very nice photos of the temple ruins. Staff were outstanding.

A gem of a hotel!Posted Jul 8, 2012
Pros: Staff were very accomodating, friendly whose spoke fluent English
Cons: Honestly can't think of anything
Location: Very convenient. Just off the toll at Villa Franca.
What a gem of a hotel. For North American travellers you swear you were in a hotel at home. Lovely appointed, value priced and very helpful staff. We would plan our holiday around staying at the Viola next time. Congratulations to their staff and owners for such a lovely property at such a value price!

Unexpected JemPosted Jun 10, 2012
Really a terrific experience. The hotel stands as a jewel in (for Americans on holiday) an otherwise crowded and (typical) old fishing village. We were honestly concerned as we drove off the autostraude to the directed location as to the other facilities near the hotel but we're very pleased to discover a new, well maintained facility, separate, off street, gated parking and a very willing and helpful staff (ours was certainly broken Italian at best#. Rooms were clean, functional. Breakfast was convenient and delicious. The distance from the Messina city center is/was just perfect for us #althought the toll on and off is at the hotel's location so a little more confusion in what is a daily list of confusing and taxing drives in Italian traffic). Overall, we're very pleased with our hotel experience.
