Booked there at first due to convenient location a few steps from port and station. Personal is very friendly and full of good tips even if they struggle with English. The Hotel is very old fashioned and decorated as an old villa, direct from movie set. Rooms are huge, beds okay but the shower little bit tricky to regulate. For a quiet stay, ask for a room on the back as we did on second night. Kept sport less clean.... a recommendation if on a budget in Messina

You stay at Hotel Touring Messina because it is close to the train station and affordable. You can do a day trip to Taormina, catch ferry to the Islands or catch a bus to up to Rome. I wish to recommend it because its interior common areas are architecturally unusual with a theme of marble, terrazzo and dark timber 1930’s style? They also have some well chosen items on display. When you think of all the bland places you can stay at that you soon forget, Hotel Touring was something out of a Vincent Price cult movie. Staff are attentive and there was a lot of cleaning going on which was nice to see. Rooms are large and memorable because you feel like you are sleeping over at your nana's house. Bathroom was fine, aircon and fridge good. Ask for a room at the front with a balcony. They will not at first show you those room as they are nosier. Why choose the front? You get a breeze and the view of the expressway has it benefits when Ferrari's drive by. The view from the rear rooms is of a car park.

Room tip: Ask for a room at the front with a balcony. They will not at first show you those room as they are nosier.

Only positive thing about this hotel is the location. Only 2 minutes walk from the train station. The hotel itself really needs upgrades in almost every way. Main problem though was the terrible noise. I got virtually no sleep that night. Sounded like you were in the middle of the road, with honking horns and constant traffic going by all night. My friend had a room on the other side of the hall and had no noise, so unless you can sleep through anything, make sure you get a room that isn't facing the road!! Would not stay here again..

This is an old fashioned hotel with old fashioned service. The friendly and helpful staff are great. They showed us to our room and made sure everything was ok, gave us coffee and croissants for breakfast, and let us store our bags while we waited for the train and explored Messina (even called our after us when we left without our pizza....). It was the cheapest hotel we went to while on our month tour of Italy but the most value for money. If old furniture worries you and you cant cope with cigarette smoke then you may not like it, otherwise go for it.

We booked this hotel because of our late arrival with the ferry. We were travelling with the Cartour ferry from Salerno, that arrived around 10.00p.m. This hotel is located just at the exit/entrance for the ferry. No big expectations. The staff is nice and the room are quite ok. Best deal for the pick season in the area. Perfect for one night!
