A really good experience overall. It is not 5*, but offers a really good value for money, a personable and polite service, and excellent location.

Positives:
- central location, perfect for the city centre/Museo Archeologico Nazionale/shopping/main restaurants
- personnel is extremely polite and useful also in terms of suggestions
- the hotel is brand new, rooms are excellent and so is the bathroom
- bedding is really good
- really nice view at breakfast, also they serve granita and crepes

Point of attention:
- maybe the roads around are a bit noisy and despite good soundproofing, it could get noisy. You can try to ask a quiet room.

Medinblu exceeded our expecations. Everyone was very helpful, the location is ideal, rooms extremely comfortable, and the rooftop terrace was wonderful--especially when we arrived late in the evening and were able to get a delicious snack. Finally, it was by any standard an outstanding value. I would be happy to find a hotel like Medinblu in every city!

Dear B8736LSericj,

Thanks for your words,
We are pleased you enjoyed the Medinblu Terrace, from which you can have a nice overview on the Strait of Messina and taste dishes or fresh fruit juice all with local products.

Best Regard!

The Hotel MEDINBLU is a wonderful discovery. Imagine the best of Italian design combined with the luxury of a 5 star hotel. The staff even arranged a driver for me to visit my ancestral home. Stop and enjoy the MEDINBLU, the Riace Bronzes, fabulous food, contemporary art galleries like Toma Giuseppe in Via Giudecca and most of all the warm Calabrian welcome.

Dear CSCNYC,
we would like to thank you for your nice words about the Hotel Medinblu**** and for the staff. The project that we embraced long time ago is to keep the Liberty style of the building still alive, adapting it to the modern requirements of the 3rd millennium.

We are looking forward to see you again here in Reggio Calabria and in the Hotel Medinblu****.

Best Regard

A new hotel very well located beside Corso Garibaldi for fantastic shopping and close to bus, rail and ferry terminalals. The staff here are welcoming friendly and efficient. The hotel is small which gives a more intimate feeling and an absolute delight to return to after a day out. One of the best features is the rooftop bar where breakfast is available and is open throughout the day for drinks and light snacks. The view from this bar is spectacular during the day and even more so in the evening and a wonderful place to share a glass of wine and nibbles while enjoying the twinkling lights of Sicily across the Messina Strait. While at the time of my stay in May their dining room was not yet opened, dinner was available which could be ordered from the fantastic Buffala Restaurant across the road. I chose to eat at the restaurant which offered wonderful food including my favourite of Tagliolinni with mussels and clams. All in all a fantastic experience and I would definitely stay at Medinblu again on my next visit to Calabria.

I and two friends stayed at Medinblu Hotel for one night. While the entrance does not look so promising from the street (the taxi driver missed it the first time around), once inside it offers fantastic modern design for a small hotel in an old building. Everywhere you look there is something eye-catching, in the best sense of the word. Not extravagant, not over the top, just beautiful.

Very lovely is the rooftop breakfast room/restaurant/cafe, from which you can catch a glimpse of Mt. Etna across the strait. First thing upon arrival, after checking in, we were taken there for a cup of coffee on the house. Breakfast there was tasty and pleasant.

Desk service was helpful, English-speaking, and very friendly.
