We stayed four nights at the Hotel Piazza in August 2006. The hotel is situated within a very nice garden, right over the sea. It has a good-sized swimming pool facing the sea. Some of the long chairs around the swimming pool need to be reemplaced and it would be better without music. There is a private access to the sea but the rocks are very slippy and it is difficult to access it. The room was simple and small (at first, we were in a sea-view room and then switched to a garden-view room: both were more or less equivalent in comfort but the sea-view room, located on the ground floor, lacked privacy and was noisy because next to the restaurant). The bathroom was ridiculously small and simple, more of a 1-2 stars standard. It used to get totally flooded after using the shower. Buffet breakfast was average: no cooked dish, pastries were frozen all products industrial. The hotel is well located right in the center but not too close to the port’s night-clubs so it is quiet. We tried the hotel restaurant once and were disappointed by the over-salted pastas; one of us was sick the following morning. The service was excellent. Staff was very helpful, friendly, polite and supervised by an efficient manager. Given the fact that the general rule in Panarea is that you pay the price of a four star hotel for the comfort of a 2 star hotel, we would recommend this hotel for its outstanding service, its good location and its swimming pool.
