Among the multi-coloured Aeolian houses of Lipari’s historic centre stands a romantic little cluster of three buildings: the Grand Hotel Arciduca, named in honour of Louis Salvator, Archduke of Austria. The Hapsburgs’ opulence combines with Sicilian styles from the end of the 19th century to create a summer palace. The bedrooms are elegant, public areas are warm and welcoming and the service is excellent. The restaurant terrace overlooks the heated swimming-pool with its hydromassage, set among the colours and perfumes of Mediterranean shrubs. A sun terrace, a gym and a games room complete the ideal setting for a holiday on Lipari. Just a few steps away is the square of Marina Corta, by the fishermen’s port and the hydrofoil dock. The little beach of Portinente is a two-minute walk and the colourful little shops and boutiques in the town centre can be reached in a couple of minutes more. Those in search of culture, on the other hand, have only a 5-minute walk to reach Lipari’s Castle, which has a museum and an archaeological garden, and the Cathedral with its cloister.

Wonderful for family holiday, we stayed 4 nights, sad to leave. Good breakfast, clean rooms, NO LIFT, 3 flights of stairs. Will check in future re level of accommodation as difficult when getting older. Would recommend, friendly staff. Loved Lipari.

We agree with other reviews about handy location and good breakfast. Also wanted to add that the pool is available though pretty warm at about 30C. Also can recommend happy hour for aperitivo. Staff were very friendly. Be aware you need tv on to get wifi - but then it is good.

Leaving Sicily today, looking for a new adventure. We will surely be back at Arciduca when coming back to the Aeolian islands. Arciduca is clean, vibrant and close to the main areas to visit in Lipari. Breakfast is top, location is convenient and Marinacorta is lovely.

Probably the best hotel we have enjoyed in Italy. We spent a few days at the Arciduca in June and found it extremely comfortable and well serviced. From the pick up at the ferry terminal, we found the hotel well located, comfortable and relaxing. The rooms and communal areas were spotless and the staff always friendly and helpful. Attention to detail everywhere was quite exceptional. Breakfast was expansive and included European options such as cereals. Don't overlook its restaurant for dinner - the menu changes daily and is very good and prices are what you will pay in the local restaurants. Extensive cellar. TV has English channels (not easy to find in Italy). Hard to find any fault. 5 minute walk to town centre.
