The Ten Best Hotels on Ischia

There is a wide range of accommodations on Ischia, home to almost 400 hotels, B&Bs, rooms, and vacation rentals. The quality of the island's hospitality, however, can be somewhat underwhelming, with dated design, limited amenities, and disappointing breakfast. With countless websites listing the island's hotels, inns, and holiday rentals, it's hard to wade through the chaff to find the few that offer updated décor and services rather than furnishings that date from decade ago!
We've done the work for you, sifting through dozens of possibilities to choose the best mid-priced hotels on Ischia that offer contemporary style and modern amenities. The luxury 5-star hotels have been left off the list, as they all offer high-end services, so we concentrated instead on the mid-level three- and four-star hotels, where there is a ample choice but few that really wow. Rates for these hotels on Ischia fall between €100 and €200 a night, and breakfast is often included.

Please note: when booking a hotel on Ischia, we suggest choosing your room category with care as often the most affordable are on the ground or garden floor and can be dark and dank. Pay close attention to the photos of each room category, and try to book far in advance for the most choice.
