Just been to this hotel and we were very satisfied. Rooms were clean.breakfast was good. Always found a parking space for our cars.I would recommend this hotel even for the view itself because one can see the mount Etna. One thing that was a bit strange was the hand basin because it was in the shower but overall I would... More

Firstly I would like to say if there was a separate rating for the staff, they would get 5 stars! The hotel was fine for the price but you need a car as the hotel is located in a residential area with very little nearby within walking distance. Failing that you need to be confident to use the buses, as... More

A nice and affordable hotel including a continental breakfast each morning. Friendly and welcoming staff, free praking, free wifi, quite central, clean and overall a pleasant experience. Our room had seaview and was quite. Nothing to complain about truly great value for money. Especially the inclusive breakfast. Great stay :)

booked hotel for 3 nights, very clean, very good breakfast and helpful staff. Free parking within the Hotel. Nothing to complain about, worth every euro we paid. . The only negative comment is that shower rooms are small especially one of the rooms to use the basin you have to access it through the shower. We traveled with cars.

I picked this place as I was driving and wanted somewhere with a car park and easy access to the airport while still being close to town. It fitted the bill perfectly. To get downtown there are local buses but as it was a sunday I drove down to look around - beautiful architecture. The staff were very helpful. The... More

We stayed here at the end of October. The hotel is spotlessly clean, the room was huge, fresh towels every day, clean bedding, breakfast was good, plenty of choice.. The staff cannot do enough to help.. Even free on site parking... If you ever need a hotel to explore Sicily you can't go far wrong here. If any negatives could... More

If you don't expect a five star hotel for the price you are paying (full payment in advance is cheaper!) this place is just fine! Breakfast was okay, room was fine, and the hotel has free parking (though you might have to leave your car keys at the reception so they can move cars around to fit everyone). Staff was... More

I booked this hotel trough the Internet for a week. Me and my family found it good overall. There are some things that need to be better. For example, there isn't any small fridge in the room. We have a toddler and we needed a small fridge to put some milk and dessert in it and we had to go... More

For a two star hotel the hotel was good for the money paid. A good breakfast, nice staff, room 56 was spacious and the air condition was very good. The three things that I can complain on are that we had the toilet seat broken but the staff replaced it, the view is not nice and in the evening you... More
