“Great stay, great service. Great island!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2013 via mobile

Well located within walking distance to the main walking street. Lovely and friendly staff. Pickup/dropped at airport is arranged. They provided us a scooter included in the daily rate. Lovely room- clean, spacious, even small kitchenette. Our window overlooked the street but there were no issues with noise. It's a great island with beautiful beaches. I'd absolutely come back!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

This is a review for the El Mosaico Hotel itself (not the dammusi). We can't find enough positive things to say about this hotel. Renato runs the hotel perfectly, and all of the staff - the woman who runs the breakfast, the secretary, room cleaners, everyone - are both friendly and helpful. The service is in short some of the best we've seen.

The rooms (more like mini-apartments) are kept spotlessly clean. Renato actually called us in Palermo the morning of our arrival to see if he could meet us at the airport (which he did.) He also quickly (2 minutes) arranged a car for us. The location is near the port, and close enough to Via Roma (the main drag) yet far enough away to be less noisy. Some rooms are near a busy traffic street, but as one of the Italian reviewers notes, the double-glazed windows solve any issues with this. The pool is a nice amenity after a hot day at the beach. The room decor is very bright and pleasant.

In short, the goal of everyone at El Mosaico is to make your stay as pleasant as possible, and they succeed.

We would recommend this hotel to friends without hesitation and will certainly be back.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2013

This is a great place to stay when visiting Lampedusa.
We were picked up from the airport by the manager. His English is good so there are no language barriers. The rest of the staff doesn't speak it as well.
The hotel is situated more or less at the harbour, 50 meter to the mini beach. The bay houses quite a few fishing boats.
The inside of the hotel has a middle eastern feel to it. The lobby is spacious and lots of places to sit and relax. The pool is clean and comfortable.
The room is great for Italian standards. A good bed which has a mosquito net around it is inside a concrete frame. It also has a small kitchenette, kitchen table and couch.
The bathroom is small and the shower is very small, about 1 meter by 1 meter. It has good waterpressure so that makes up for the small space.
Breakfast was simple and not much to choose from.
Still overall a great place for the price paid.
