I had booked for 3 days, but fell in love with Santa Marina--both the town and the hotel--so I stayed an extra 3 days. I was in two different rooms and loved both of them--the Sicilian lace on the windows, the antique floor tiles, and the old prints on the walls. The first room was on the non-port side and had a view of Stromboli. It had no terrace, but it was quiet and comfy. My second room faced the port and was noisier--neighbors and ferry noises--though nothing that would bother most people, and nighttime was quiet. That room had a gorgeous large terrace that was conducive to writing and dreaming. The breakfast terrace way on top with its amazing views can also be used for an evening aperitivo. I have a food allergy, and the owner was very accommodating to my needs for breakfast. By the way, the owner Francesco is every bit as charming as his hotel. The other great thing about the hotel is its location--just a few steps from the main shopping street, and a block from the port. (I noticed most hotels in town were way up a steep hill, and I was glad I didn't have to carry my luggage that far.)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In the 1850s, along the Santa Marina waterfront, an ancient building was used to welcome and host the many merchants who, at that time, were attracted to Salina. The structure, whose name was Sajeva Hotel, offered to the visitors the best comfort of that time, a charming hall used also as meeting space for commercial transactions of Malvasia wine. The Santa Marina Hotel has been created a few meters away from the original site from the Saija family, from the rehabilitation of an ancient structure with the purpose of recreating the atmosphere of the old Sajeva. All the rooms are furnished with original antiques from that golden age, during which Salina was the major commercial hub of the Aeolian Archipelagos. The four stars Hotel Santa Marina has 4 standard rooms, 3 standard rooms with view, 2 Jr Deluxe with private patios, and 2 suites (suitable for more than two guests). On the roof terrace, equipped with free wi-fi, hotel guests and their visitors have their breakfasts and happy hours, overlooking all the other islands of the archipelagos. The hotel is located along the waterfront, in the very centre of the Santa Marina Village, at 3-minutes walking distance from the harbour, few steps away from the Village's main street and square. Rooms are equipped with air-conditioning, mini-bar, security box, satellite TV and phone, while the staff offers a reservation service for the major tourist attraction of the island (e. g. land and sea excursions, museums' guided tours, thermal bath). Guests can also benefit from conventional prices with a choice of the best local Aeolian restaurants. ... more less
