Casajanca
Ranked #22 of 33 Hotels in Lipari
Reviewed 1 January 2014

We stayed here for 2 nights we were traveling with a small group of family. The Hotel texted us to see what time we were arriving by ferry and were at the ferry upon our arrival to pick us up. A quick drive to the hotel, which was more like a B&B, warm and welcoming from start to finish. Large, clean, spacious rooms, with great views of either the inside courtyard or surrounding area, quaint streets lined with tresses of shrubbery and flowers, beautiful all around. Run by a mother and her 2 daughters it truly made us feel at home with the family pets paying visits during our stay. Breakfast was home made pastries and cakes, just delicious. They scheduled a boat trip for us to see a few other islands and were incredibly helpful with any questions we had during our stay. Highly recommended all around!

There may logically be better on Lipari but I don't expect to find it. Casajanca exceeded my expectations for what I was after; not an international 5 star hotel but a small family run Albergo right on the beach and piazza at Canneto. Tano's bar next door was a pleasant refuge and it is handy to everything in the village.

My room was large and I did not close the shutters or windows that opened up on the piazza for my whole stay. I arrived with a damaged knee and was thoughtfully placed in the front ground room which was huge, well appointed and brimming with character.

I made good use of the thermal pool in the central courtyard and enjoyed the provided breakfast while looking out to sea from the breakfast room.

The experience was topped off by the friendly support of the family. I asked after the cemetery to visit my family's graves and was immediately offered to be driven there as it was a couple of kilometers away.

I have no idea how people have managed to have a less than optimal stay here. They must have made a real effort.

We stayed two nights and have truly enjoyed the experience. Small hotel with just 10 rooms with very helpful staff. Clean, no fuss yet charming and quiet. Very welcoming. If we go back to Lipari, that's where we will stay.

We stayed two nights and were very happy with the hotel.

The staff we friendly and helpful, with recommendations for activities and dining. The hotel is “connected” to a number restaurants, a small boat ferry service, and a beach and guests get special pricing.

We wanted to spend some time on the beach so we chose to stay away from the village of Lipari with its ferry and cruise ship traffic. We were happy we chose Canneto which is about 10 minutes from the ferry dock. Canneto is a quiet, small village with nice beaches, good dining options, and a few beach side clubs.

Albergo Boutique Casajanca is centrally located on the main street across from the beach. It is close to everything we were interested in doing.

We were not aware that they would have picked us up at the ferry so we took a taxi – 10 Euro – so call and let them know which boat you are on and they can arrange for a pick up.

The hot tub in the courtyard is fed by natural hot water and was very relaxing.

Breakfast is simple, but adequate.

Wi-Fi is free, but for me, only worked in the lobby.

We stayed there for one night. We were picked up at Lipari, the place is actually in Canetto, a 10 mins drive from Lipari. The room and the hotel are decorated with taste and sense of detail and is perfect for a romantic stay (we were among the only hosts on that day so that may have helped). We were directly taken to our room (basilicum was the name of the room) upon arrival, on 1st floor. The room was nicely arranged and very much in the shade so probably still fresh even in hotest months but as a consequence a little bit dark (did not bother us though). We did not get any information when we arrived, except that they took our passport and when trying to find what to do on the island a few mins later, there was not anyone around. So we ended up renting a scooter at an agency nearby and made our way to Lipari and the rest of the island. When coming back after dinner, there was still no one at the reception or around but we saw that the small pool in the inner court had been cleaned and could be used. So we enjoyed a late warm bath in the inner with green plants everywhere, very romantic setting. The breakfast the next morning was good but fairly basic. This was the first time we really met and discussed with the staff... We unfortunately learned only at that point that they had some agreements with some restaurants in Lipari for Better deals - including the restaurant we went to (kasbah)... To bad. But in general we still enjoyed the stay.

Canneto is a beautiful small town, quiet and charming. 5 minutes from the center of LIpara by bus. The hotel is like a house, the rooms are very comfortable and the people who work there (mostly a mother and her two daughters) are sooo nice and helpful.. We'd plan to go other places from there, but we decided to stay and enjoy the beauty, peace and quiet of the place. I would definitely come back to Canneto and Casjanca. I met a charming couple from Cortina D'ampesso there, at breakfast, who's been spending their holiday break at Casajanca since it was opened, I think for 8 or 10 years or so.

Room Tip: I don't have one, since I had an excellent one.

This is a wonderful little hotel with only a handful of rooms making it relatively quiet and relaxing.

Family-owned, the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. On our second day of an 8-night stay, we asked to have our room changed and found our hosts to be thoroughly accommodating. The hotel is situated directly on the beach of Canneto and there are some excellent bars to be found immediately outside as well as ready access to the boating excursion dock and beach taxis.

The reason that we changed our room was that it was immediately adjacent to the excellent Thermal Bath, and this made for a little noise when the other guests were in the bath at night. This is not the fault of the hotel, but rather other guests who were not particularly considerate.

One thing to note is that the Family's pets often make visits to the hotel and reception area (there are even two turtles in the atrium). For us, this was wonderful because we love animals, but if you're afraid of adorable little dogs and cats, then perhaps you should chose a more Industrial-hotel.

Overall, it was an excellent stay and we would definitely consider staying there again when next we visit Lipari.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the Thermal Bath may be quieter, but this depends on the other hotel guests
