This B&B is decorated in quite a funky and opulent way. The location is great, just five minutes from the duomo and the stop for the airport bus is an easy five minutes' walk away. The thing that sets it apart is Gabriela's hospitality. She emailed the day before to advise on how to get from the airport (a first... More

We had asked for the so called Gold room and it was fine. Goldpainted furnishing and a bit quirky. The bed was not the most ergonomic but worked. Bathroom ok, but need some reparis and better ligthning. Problem is that the room is facing the street with a bar open until 4 in weekends. We were not so bothered as... More

A real GEM hidden in an old Palace in a shabby supertrendy café/restaurant neighbourhood. Fantastic designed quiet Whiteroom in the back where the 2 mirrors create an infinity I don't feel alone effect. The beautiful chique Louisstyled frontrooms are more in contact with the street that can be noisy. Bring your earplugs and you sleep like a queen. Take a... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights using it as a base to explore the surrounding areas - Taormina for one - clean, nice choice at breakfast - Gabriela is a great host - so as I said in the title does what it says on the tin! Somewhere with character not a big glass hotel!

Clean B&B, decorated in a design way. Personal attention and breakfast service by the owner in a very open and friendly style. Unfortenately during weekend noisy bars just in the same street, be prepared.

Don't take a room on the streetside of this B&B because right in front of you, you will find a very noisy bar with lots of seats on the footpath; the noise goes on till early in the morning... The rooms at the back give you a perfect night's sleep. The interior is very trendy and the breakfast is very... More

B&B Gem de Luxe is that kind of hotel that could be easily called pension. But stylish. Finally is a flat converted in a hotel. No more no less. The host Gabrielle was attentive and helpful. The hotel style is minimalist and there were several design items and furnitures. Phillippe Starck chairs and some other design firm objects around. All... More

B&B with only four rooms, in old apartment house. Nice modern stylish decoration. Nice breakfast. We had room to the backyard, was quiet, do not know how it is when facing the street. Staff, Gabriella, is a very good host. Kind, interested, giving advice. Unusual as they have so many guests over the years, she did not give us the... More

Nice place to spend a night. Is located little away from the Dumo. Room was very well decorated and comfortable. People who like night life it is very good. The staff to receive us wasn't very warm & welcoming. Had some internet connection issues but the next day morning was resolved once Gabriella came. To find a parking was problem.
