This is my third stay at the Hotel Tritone. It is remote, at least from the U.S., so I wouldn't return if I didn't totally love it. It is a perfect gem of a hotel. The owner, Sg. Filippo, is always on the premises and always has a personal greeting for his guests. I expect to return to this Hotel many times in the future. It is my favorite destination. And the town of Lipari is wonderful.
The hotel provided a shuttle service free of charge. There was a lovely man waiting for us when we got off the hydrofoil, which made the travel a lot less stressful. All of the staff were fantastic and made our stay a very pleasant one. We would love to return to Lipari one day and would definitely stay here again. Thank you to all of the wonderful staff.
Spacious room, pool area, free transfer to port (hotel is a 10-15 walk away) Due to a wedding, pool was unavailable on day of arrival, and it was not possible to sleep until 2 a.m.; we asked for a discount, but the director was rude and didn't even listen. Breakfast buffet offers quantity, but not quality. All in all, the hotel offers 5*-quality only in terms of rooms and pool area, but not regarding food and customer service.
Very clean and welcoming Hotel with good facilities. Nothing
Hotel was situated on a hill overlooking the sea. The pool area and room terrace was very dusty with mould on the sun loungers.
excellent hotel. very close to everything and staff could not be more helpful no
Gorgeous setting, immaculately clean and within minutes of our arrival, the staff made us feel like family. Our host went above and beyond to show us his beautiful island. Even taking us around himself when we got lost. It was the highlight of the vacation and I can't wait to return next year.
Beautiful hotel. The room was very nice and the pool is really really good! The staff were really friendly and helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Showers are definitely too small
Its location. Very quiet. Its few number of rooms makes the hotel friendly and accessible and like if you were at home.
Nice quiet hotel with fantastic service - and great location the rooms are maybe a little small - but very nice anyway
Very helpful and friendly people, they help you to organize all you want to do. Very nice pool with a fantastic view.
The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, their level of english was very good whch made our stay that bit more enjoyable. none
Staff, room and swimming pool
The friendlyness of the staff and the facilities, for example the fantastically clean and warm swimming pool, the jacuzzi on the roof and the sun beds. Location was great aswell.
The hotel is one of Lipari's best.Its location is 5 minutes to the main street. There is internet but it didn't work for us in the room (with cable) we needed to go to the reception hall. I wish more ppl knew english, ask for Alicia (if I recall well). You can see that there is not a lot of staff and thus the service is fair but not good; for example I remember us taking the luggage to the room even on arrival. But they had a shuttle to the port which was very convenient.
It's a lovely hotel and has a nice pool. The rooms are spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The free internet was easy to use, in the lounge area of the hotel. The roof gardens were also very pleasant.
The quiet location. comfortable rooms. There was a conference at the hotel with a lot of people. This made it a bit uncomfortable to use to pool area during the day.
English speaking Staff very helpful- Nice breakfast.
Best speaking Italian ever met within this hotel staff - Ms Melissa; cleanliness - they changed the towels even twice a day; serenity of the surroundings - a residential area not assaulted by tourists; good taste implicit in everything ... Overall great. No garden available - we did not check though the "terrace garden" and they recommended a tourist office offering trips which did not prove to be serious, this should really be taken care of and I think they already did due to our complaint.
Extremely friendly staff, very helpful and acomodating. A bautiful Hotel, highly recommend it!!! Great location also! Could have better breakfast, more variety and fresh bread.
Trully friendly manager and receptionists. Courtesy van brough us from the port to the hotel and back. Luggage brought to the room and all facilities pointed out to us. Superb room and services. Tasteful decoration and real comfort. Located in a nice and quiet street besides another hotel and a fantastic restaurant. Just 4 or 5 minutes walk from Marina Corta and Corso Vittorio Emanuele Staff serving breakfast: Nothing reprovable but not as friendly as the rest of the staff.
Wonderful place. The building is so charming (you really feel as being in a small sea village!), new, clean, everything! Our room was big, perfectly clean, with a wonderful terrace from where we could see the harbour and the village! Very nice staff, they can help you virtually on everything. No pool (I know, the sea is better, but given the small amount of beaches in Lipari...). Breakfast could be a bit more varied.
The staff were very freindly and cooperative, and had the information we wanted about tours, ferrys etc. The rooms were good, but did not have the promised views.Not the sea on one room, and the "garden view", side, didnt have any garden.
Good, quiet location overlooking Lipari. Although the hotel is a little way from the center of the town, shuttle bus service is provided..
the pool is salt water and the location on the cliff is superb for relaxation it's quite a walk up and down hills to get into town. The staff are not all very nice. The front desk crew tried to inflate my price. I don't know if this was deliberate or they were just rubbish at maths.
it was nice
We liked the sea view from our balcony and from the hotel in general, the swimming pool is wonderful and saltwater and you can swim off the rocks into the sea. The hotel ambience and terrace is good and the room we had (a superior) was comfortable although I am not sure what made it superior except for the whirlpool bath, rather overpiced but still very enjoyable. The hotel reception staff were not at all friendly and somewhat sour and there did not seem to be a shuttle bus to the town (which I would have expected from a hotel in this location and category) the walk can be an exhausting 15 minute walk up over a hill in the heat of the day and taxis are expensive.
It was a beautiful location, stunning views. Good and helpful staff. Room could have been cleaner. Tile floors were always gritty
Has a great location if you go summer time, with your family. Has its own seaside and marvellous sea. Pool from sea water. There is a free shuttle service to town center. We enjoyed the hotel in general. Common places seems a bit out dates, needs renovation. It could be good if hotel restaurants upgrades food quality.
Beautiful pool and location on coast. Great view from restaurant. Staff was friendly and helpful. Single room was ok - a bit small, but had all the necessities.
The magnificent view of the Lipari island, the beautiful weather, the blue and clean sea and the quiet environment The equipment of the hotel must be renewed expecially beds and showers. The floor surrounding the pool needs more cleanliness. No animation is provided, a disco is advertised but it is not present.
A great view of the sea, the place is a little far from the center, but very calm and quiet. Very happy to stay there.
We booked a triple room. It looked larger rooms are in a cottage with own entrance. I liked the size of the accommodation.
Staff were very friendly, pool features were nice. The rooms look like they were from the 1970s - badly needs refreshing. Also, incredibly expensive.
Great location just off the main street. Lovely courtyard / pool area (pool a little small but good enough). Great rooms. No savoury breakfast options (continental and cereals only).
Large rooms, Garden Furnishement, Ants
it's very expensive for an hotel so noisy (the restaurant is on the top of the hotel so that we have earded every movement of the chairs on the floor!!) + the pool is very very small (it's not a real pool but a big bath) + as the pool is in the middle of the hotel, the noise can be earded from all + the pool don't have lot of sun... I found this hotel very expensive for all this + the decoration wich is very old fashion
The hotel was clean ,neat,and tidy.easy to hop from island to island.the staff were great and helpful.
convenient location & breakfast!
the location the staff were rude and unfriendly. we had one bad experience with the manager where he was abusive towards us.
Very good location. Ok breakfast. Arrogant and rude male receptionist. Very small room, not worth the price. Air conditioning cost extra.
A traditional and calm hotel with character. Spacious rooms and terraces. Breakfast was adequate. We were end of season and our options dimished daily.
Good location, nice lobby, good breakfast, clean bathroom was too small, toilette and shower was in the same place
The hotel was right by the port, it offered a decent selection for breakfast, and had helpful staff. The hotel charged for itnernet usage, I couldn't figure out the air conditioner in my room, the shower had no base, and the gym wasn't really a gym
Very convenient situation, especially for the ferry terminal. Godd breakfast served until quite late for those who don't like to get up early on holiday.
Hotel appears to think it is grand in some way but really is rather shabby. Very expensive for what it is and when they charge you 5 euros extra per day to turn the air conditioning on in August you kind of know what kind of place it is.
The close proximity of the hotel to the city area of Lipari was fantastic. The hotel offered value for money, was very clean and has a loverly ambiance. The rooms were airconditioned, had generous sized bathrooms. I would recommend this hotel to other travellers and would again stay there myself without any reservations. no it was exactly what we were looking for.
The breakfast was lovely, there was plenty on offer and they served til 10am. It was also in a very good position to the main corso but far enough away to not to be in the main hub of noise all night. The bed was very comfortable too which is always good news. The decor could be updated - the room was a good size but was quite dark. The only other thing was when they cleaned the room each morning, they always left the inside door open. (I can't understand why)
Lovely quiet area. Own apartment-type room with private terrace area. Room clean and everything in good condition. 5 to 10 minutes walk to the main street and harbours. Local shops provide everything you'll need. Generous continental breakfast included. Bella zona tranquilla. Proprio appartamento tipo camera con terrazza privata zona. Quite a few irritations because of higher expectations for the price: Rules posted everywhere which didn't make us feel like welcome guests. For example, we were instructed (in red and underlined) to take all our rubbish every day to the bins out on the road, and threatened with excess charges for cleaning the kitchen area. Why should we do our own cleaning and rubbish removal?
A gently staff, good breakfast, although made only for us. Many thanks. The price could be lower in this really not high season as there is no tourists at the islands at all. To put some carpets on the floor of rooms would be a good idea while in the bathroom it is quite necessary.
Friendly, helpfull staff. Away from the town centre, yet within 5 minutes walk. Comfortable and clean rooms. Card machine did not work, and I had to get cash from the cash machine in town centre - to pay for the room.
This hotel is most intresting hotel we ever seen. You can just sit and watch all the old items. All the staff are very friendly, they offer you free taxi to the port. Breakfast is amazing.
Extensive and delicious breakfast. Quirky decor in house and gardens. Calm and quiet with helpful, friendly English speaking staff.
i like very much decor and the lovely staff people .
Sicily-Palermo-Lipari...best people as far I know. Always pleasant. Thank you very much. / Rolf & Maria, North Sweden
The location in the town of Lipari was a real plus.....a block from the main street but close to everything. Instructions on the website are a little vague but ergot there. They also offered a pick up service from the ferry if you ring on arrival - alas we didn't know this until we got there. Nonethess good sized room and breakfast was a feast everyday.
Wonderful location and lovely house. Terrace outside room splendid. Also booked because of tennis court - although not in good condition. The owner didn't seem to care too much about service and breakfast was poor
Beautiful surroudings and view from the breakfast area. Very good access to the main town. The fact that air-conditioning was at extra charge
The view of the bay was amazing! The male owner spoke English so it was easier to communicate. There wasn't any hot water for the shower. The handle to the window was broken. We didn't know there was a hotel shuttle to and from the bay; it would have made getting there easier.
Breakfast food and venue. Great outlook to the harbour and beyond. Cleanliness was very good.
beautiful view from the terrace, pleasant garden, not far from the centre, very quiet, very kind and helpful staff
The room was large and airy. The terrace was wonderful, with great views. Location was convenient, a short walk from the harbour and town. The house was a fascinating gallery of art work. Lack of tourist information, particularly when the tourist office in town was rarely open .
Good location with full views of Lipari town and harbour. Charming hosts and lovely room.
Beautiful gardens, spacious terrace overlooking Lipari town and harbour. Slight inconvenience of being a 10-15 minute walk uphill from town.
Fantastic views, authentic ambiance, helpful staff. Limited breakfast selection, plumbing in room needs overhaul.
We had room 101 the view & size of the room was fantastic we would stay here again. There was a problem with the internet they did allow us to use the office computer but it would have been good to have it in our room.
I love that you can lie out and then climb down a ladder to go right into the ocean.
Loved this hotel. All staff were very friendly (make sure to call as you arrive at the port to be collected) and the room was terrific (booked a suite). Big room, right on the water, with a huge comfortable bed. Apart from breakfast, didnt try dining, although we were told there was a 15euro 3 course menu for booking.com users. Lipari port is only a short, but hot, walk away. Overall, would highly recommend. Hotel breakfast was a let down with just the regular pastries and cereals and tinned fruits. Given the abundance of fresh and flavourful fruit in the region, this was disappointing. Also, a fair amount of competition for the loungers on the sun deck, so be quick!
Helpful staff. Good room size and nice patio set in beautiful gardens. It is handy to have the choice between using the hotel restaurant or prepare your own food in the cooking corner The hotel is very nice, but there are no beaches nearby and the swimming pool has very limited chairs available
yes, i'd enjoy no
very classic holiday hotel (the name of the hotel could make you fear or dream something special, whichever, in this case you might be disappointed!) . friendly staff, ready to help and provide good service. pleasant surrounding. good location in the island, close to the harbour, the thermal mud and the two main beaches. mosquitos
The hotel is a complete relax with one of the best sea views and sunsets I have ever seen. The service is very attentive and we stayed in a deluxe room with a huge terrace overlooking the sea and volcano, I can recommend this great hotel to everybody looking for relaxing vacations.
The rooms were beautiful, the service excellent. The location is unbeatable- breathtaking view of all the Aoliean Islands, and the sunset views are magnificent. I did not care for the restaurant/pool bar. The food was unexceptionable, and the service in the restaurant was abysmal.
The Infinity pool is the most amazing I have ever seen. the views are incredible!
What I didn't expect from a five star hotel was having two single beds put together to make 1 Queen bed. I wish they had one Queen bed. The view and the pool right by the water was amazing
the hotel is in a wonderful position with a beautiful sight, very clean with friendly staff. highly reccomended for a relaxing holiday. great buffet for breakfast. rooms are very comfortable. the restaurant is a bit pretentious.
Beatiful place, nice staff, great breakfast
everything, location, staff, room, breakfast, the pool
The staff and their service was exceptional. So was the cuisine. Do ask for their homemade Cannoli and the Malvasia from Salina to complement it! The three chefs are in the same class as the three tenors. The food was extraordinary, they recommended some excellent local wines and they even catered personally for the vegetarians in our party. They picked us up at the harbour and dropped us off at 630 am for our return trip at no extra charge. We look forward to spending a longer holiday there on our next visit!
Swimming pool Dinner - little choice of menu
Margarita on reception provided excellent customer service, calling our previous hotel to locate an item left behind there and also proactively arranging an excursion for us based on very limited (and somewhat inaccurate) information we provided. The restaurant staff were charming as well. The hotel could consider extending breakfast until 10.30. I noticed a number of people still eating when everything was cleared away promptly at 10.00.
Very nice pool and garden area, the room was large and comfortable. Staff was rather inept. Whatever you asked for - they had to call the director. They were not able to help with the transport to Catania airport (you need to take the ferry from Lipari to Milazzo, then a bus).
Overall, the hotel stay was great. The room, facilities, grounds, etc were very clean. The environment was peaceful, and if we ever make it back to Lipari, this is where we will stay.
The rooms were large and comfortable. The pool was beautiful. Restaurant staff was cold and unfriendly. Food was average nothing exceptional. We sent back an entree which was not to our liking and ordered a replacement entree and were charged for both.
nice and friendly staff, spacious and clean rooms we booked half-board. the menu was a bit repetitive, but food in general ok.
