Bit shocked when we first arrived as the hotel is a bit outdated. It's in a nice position and we had looked for hotel in Cefalu with a swimming pool so that we could relax for 2 days before our 3 days in Palermo. The room was ok, not good or great but a typical holiday room, tiled floor, walls... More

We spent three nights in Cefalu not knowing what to expect and just loved it. I can see why the Italians love it so. Old Town is fabulous with shopping, bars and restaurants galore. La Rocca was something special as well. The Tourist is just far enough out of town to make for quieter surroundings. We slept with the doors... More

First things First. Nice clean swimming pool! It's not the Ritz but for the budget savvy traveler you can't go wrong. We got room #204 and it's ocean front view. Parking is free and they have a parking lot but if you are lucky enough to get a spot out front it's a shorter walk and you can see your... More

Firstly to get my only complaint out of the way. We went for 1 week from 19th Aug. We were given room 104 on the 1st floor. On going to the balcony I noticed bird poo on the ground as well as noticed all rooms on this floor had the same, due to bird nests (house martins) on the roof... More

Hotel Tourist was booked for me by a family member and I was very glad they did. One of my favourite things about Hotel Tourist is that it is located right on Lungomare and our room had a wonderful balcony with views of the sea so we could watch the sunset each evening. Across the road from the hotel lies... More

While the location of the hotel was good, the Hotel was overpriced at $170.00 euro ( 4 adults, we had our 18 and 21 yr.old children on this trip). Very disappointed by the old hotel, lacked any European flavor and looked like it was stuck in the 70's with its decor. The pool is not recommended If you have children... More

We stayed at this hotel in a quadruple room with our 2 children. The room was spacious with a small balcony and while the decor is a little dated, the rooms are spotless. This is a great hotel to stay in with children as the pool is a great size, never crowded and extremely clean. The children also really enjoyed... More
