“A piece of heaven on earth”
Reviewed 6 August 2013 via mobile

Three nights at Borgo Eolie proved too few. The hotel is an well managed, nicely maintained, intimate resort in a picturesque location. The outdoor heated pool is one of its finer features, as are its manicured grounds, and spacious air-conditioned rooms. Free hi speed wi-fi near the breakfast and reception area also a bonus. The staff, especially Massimo, are very helpful and welcoming. The hotel is several minutes walk from the center of town, so the hotel provides a regular shuttle for guests to and from the town and the port. For the price, I have found no better value in all of Italy. The breakfast is good, though not exceptional, but the surroundings are such that its hard to care too much. Highly recommend!

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the garden area. Try to avoid the rooms above the garage area on the left of the h...

A lovely calm, beautifully maintained base for our time on Lipari. The staff treated us exceptionally well. We would definitely recommend to others. The shuttle bus service into town was really helpful but actually it's a really pleasant walk too (though perhaps not in the heat of the day!).

Room Tip: 209 had a lovely sea view.

We stayed here for a couple days last month and it was a nice, quiet and attractive base to explore the islands. The pool is great and the breakfast was good -- the staff was also friendly and helpful. There were nice patios and places to sit, and wifi in the lobby (only). It was a little further from the center of town than we thought -- there is a shuttle but it doesn't run all the time, so we had to take a couple cabs. But overall we had a very nice stay, especially for the price!

Room Tip: Rooms by the pool were very nice!

What is good? Everything
What is bad? Nothing
Thanks to Massimo, Ornella, Luca, Isabella, Rosaria and Francesca we had a very pleasent stay in a excellent, clean and quit spot at the Borgo.
The are many things to do if you get restless, like boat trips, car rental, walking out in the fields or just relax at the pool. Community bus system are well organized and bring you to beaches around the Island. The main street are closed for car trafic, shops and resturants are all over the place so its easy even if you travel with kids.

Room Tip: rooms next to the swiming pool are more quite

Perfect hotel to enjoy the atmosphere of Lipari but at the same time, located in a quiet and far enough from the tourist zone to enjoy the tranquility of the area.

The hotel has also a fantastic pool which is perfecte foran afternoon of sun bathing.

Is not far from the center as some users say. In fact it is a pleasant walk of 10 minutes. However, if you bothered to walk, the hotel offers a complimentary shuttle service both to the center and back. This service is especially useful the day of departure of arrival, when you carry all the luggage.

The hotel is divided into several buildings. We had the bad luck that we get the room next to the dining room. This made, too early in the morning, feel the noise staff preparing breakfast. That's why my rating of sleep quality is low due to excessive noise too early. I'm sure, but if you get a room in another building, peace must be total.

The staff was perfect in the welcome and solving all the problems you can have during your accomodation.

Breakfast is good enough and with a wide variety of products.

Wifi is only accessible in common areas.

I spent one quick night here as part of a ferry "cruise" from Naples to Messina via Capri, Stromboli and Lipari. Next time, I'll stay here for several days. Except for Stromboli - which I recommend avoiding overnight, and visiting on a day trip from Lipari - all my hotels from Naples to Capri to Sicily were very good to excellent, and this was the best of the seven. Great service, great room, great breakfast, even a free shuttle to and from the ferry landing and around town. When I got lost walking back to the ferry on my way out, I called back to Borgo Eolie and got turn by turn directions until I recognized where I was. The bed was very comfortable, and the terrace a great place to sit out and sip a Campari soda with a (slightly distant) sea view. The pool was lovely, and shade structures there and on the terraces were well placed to allow use even in the heat of the day.
