“Treated like friends”
Reviewed 6 June 2013

We stayed at Hotel La Piazza for two days at the start of June 2013.
We arrived in Panarea at about 9:30am and were met by a golf cart to take us and the luggage to the hotel which was a short distance from the harbour. We were surprised that we were allowed to check in straight away and given an upgrade to room with a sea view and invited to have breakfast.
The room had been recently decorated; the terrace was private with walls separating it from adjacent rooms, the walls had plants growing over them. The terrace had a small table and two comfortable chairs. It was most attractive.
The salt water pool was a reasonable size and clean, there were plenty of loungers and there was a large covered area with tables and chairs.
The continental buffet breakfast was good with a good selection of items. We did not eat in the hotel but used the cafes and restaurants in the town.
The island is small and within a few hours everything can be seen, but it is a good place to relax and the views are spectacular wherever you are. The majority of people staying seemed to be Italian, although tour boats with a range of nationalities visited in the middle of the day.
There is very little street lighting so a torch would be useful on a dark night to light the way back to the hotel.
The staff were very friendly and helpful; when we left they waved us off like lifelong friends.

we spent a week at hotel la Piazza and enjoyed it ,it's the top spot of Panarea ,the view is fantastic ,the pool is right on the sea side overlooking the bay and the Eolie islands ,,the family management garantees that all the client needs will be satisfied and this is the main advantage .The breakfast is missing the fresh fruit ,for the rest is fine .The restaurant is good enough for a 4 star hotel .The service is not so performing but the staff is kind .The hotel is in urgent need of a renovation of the pool area ,the rooms are in good condition and clean but it's time for renovation too.
Overall ,we will be back if possible in the near future!

We enjoyed a few nights on this wonderful island. Hotel La Piazza is the best Hotel to stay at on the island. The pool that overlooks the ocean is filled with water from the sea, a small beach is situated below the Hotel. This is the only Hotel on the island where you can enjoy the sea with out hiring a boat.
The rooms have a beautiful balcony where you can relax and experience the breathtaking views. Bathrooms are of 3 star Hotel quality out dated although clean. Room interiors also average. I did comment to friendly staff about the Bathrooms and they did mention they were renovating and some of the rooms had new bathrooms there fore be sure to ask for the new bathroom when booking this Hotel.
Breakfast and dining area boasts spectacular views although I do not recommend the restaurant as it is of poor quality. Breakfast is average

The hotel is very conveniently located, surrounded by a beautiful tropical garden, with an amazing view. Rooms are adequatly large, but equipped with poor furniture. Dirty walls. 14" TV (do they still exist???). Bathrooms really need to be remodeled, totally unaccettable for a 4-star hotel. (in fact a pipe exploded and caused a severe flod). Restaurant is ok, maybe too expendive. Bar service not adequate (lack of produts). Modest breakfast buffet. Internet not working. Chairs at the swimming pool need to be replaced (broken or totally indicent). Hotel manager not particulary kind and available.

we stayed in this hotel for 6 nights in August. the hotel is nice, centrally located but it's run by incompetent owners. The rooms are nice a bit oldish (80s style), all with balcony but none of them (we saw 4 types of rooms) would be a 4 stars rooms. I would call this establishment a three stars but you pay for a five stars (as you're in Panarea and becaise the owners want yo make a big profit without spending money in restauration works). The breakfast is basic, the staff at the bar is not professional: they only flirt around the owners' family and forget about the orders normal paying customers place or if they remember they spill your coffee over the table. It's a nightmare. Cats and dogs belonging to the manager walk freely in the restaurant (are there not and hygenic rules on this???) and the small pool gets overcrowded with friends oif the owners so forget to get a sunbed, you client paying a 230 EUros per night. My advice: try some other lodging options or do not stay more than one night in this hotel.
