The parking is situated 15 minutes by walk only, so no mater for us as other reviews say and nothing was terrible! The location was fantastic expecially very clean , the old build was in the centre on the sea... More

The plus point is that it is a good location in a fantastic town. Not expensive. Lack of security was a bit unnerving. The accommodation provider phoned us to ask what time we were arriving (early evening) and said he would leave the key in the room door for us when we arrived. This was clearly a common arrangement.

We stayed here at the end of September and were pleasantly surprised. I'd read some of the reviews before booking, citing issues with the breakfast and parking - its true, there is no parking very nearby, but there is free parking not far (a 10 minute walk away) and if you take the short cut back into town there is...

The dolce vita is nicely located in the old town of Cefalu. The street outside is rather trafficked, so be careful, especially if u are traveling with children. First of all, the Dolce Vita has quite a few stairs before u get to the rooms , so it might not be the best alternative if traveling with children (especially with... More

Nothing like the discription on booking.com. Yes, there is a terrace overlooking the sea. But that is it. No lovely cosy family-run B&B. The atmosphere was cold, no service what so ever. Giovanni was ok, the other guy, that worked the morningshift, an absolute scumbag. "Yeah, no water in the room, i know. Not my problem". And 1 second later... More

B&B dolce vita, was an alright hotel. We stayed on street side and it was very noisy. The noise started around 1am and didn't stop till after 7am. Be prepared they do not have a lift so you have to walk up three flights of stairs. The room was pretty big, and we as a couple even had a spare... More

As many others have said, the location is fabulous- right in the heart of shops, restaurants, and very close to the beach. The rooms are large and bright, the balcony is delightful to sit on and watch the sun go down, and wifi service is free and does work. However, beds and pillows are very hard, the owners are not...

My husband and i stayed one night and found the B&B to be very clean and functional. The bed was clean, large and gorgeous. The en-suite and shower worked well, the room was brightly painted and refreshing original- if you like standard conformity this is not the place for you! The view from the roof terrace was amazing, we opted... More

My friend and I stayed at this B&B last weekend for three nights. We have stayed in many hostels and B&Bs before, however this stay was very disappointing. Unfortunately I dont think we actually read the other Trip Adisor tips before booking! Positives: Location is fabulous. Its right in the old town with a nice terrace overlooking the ocean. The...
