“We loved the place. Alfonso, the owner is so helpful and friendly. He suggested some very good restaurants.(One in particular, where we had the best meal of the holiday) Can highly recommend B&B La Casa Di El.” We had a nice room on the 11th floor with a little balcony overlooking the old town. We even had our own separate... More

In all my life tourist (which includes Southwest Asian, Africa and South America) this was the worst experience I ever had. We, me my wife and my 10 months baby, arrive at the property by 8pm. Alfonso presented himself and the first thing he said was "why are you arriving so late?" From that moment on and for 10 min,... More

In a ca 20 floormanager high building against the historical centre. Rooms without view to the sea and the valley of the Temple. Parking the car is possible but tricky. Alfonso is a very good guest who gave us a quick guided walk nearby wit lots of helpfull information concerning what to visit and where to shop or eat. The... More

This is really a great B&B. It is not in a building you expect (a modern flat), but inside it is luxury. Moreover, the view to the temple valley and the sea is fantastic. Alfonzo is indeed a great host. The breakfast he serves at the room is unbelievable (you can eat whole day from it), and he is a... More

We received a very warm welcome, including much needed tea and biscuits, from the charming owner, Alfonso, before being shown to our beautifully decorated, light and airy 11th floor room. To our surprise, there was also a private breakfast room. From there we had a fantastic view of the Valley of the Temples (easy to get to by bus from... More

Do not be put off by the somewhat gloomy exterior of this building-- Alfonso has created a haven for travelers in his beautiful apartments overlooking Agrigento, the countryside, and the Valley of the Temples. My room was on the 11th floor with spectacular views complete with a small terrace with table and chairs. The apartment is spacious: a large salon... More

“Alfonso was an excellent host. He reflects true Sicilian hospitality. The breakfast he prepared for us was extensive, especially the homemade preserves made by his mamma. The location of the B&B allowed for easy, free parking, either in front of the building or around the corner (which is downhill :)). The view from our balcony was perfect....the ocean and the...

We loved our stay here. We shared an apartment with another couple, each with separate rooms and bathrooms. The breakfast was sumptuous and the owner very friendly and welcoming. We were treated royally. The hotel is well situated near the pedestrian zone and a short ride to the ruins. We highly recommend this hotel.
