This is an older hotel that is in the middle of Erice. Rooms are basic with a minimum of amenities. The best part of the hotel is the family staff that is very friendly and helpful. This is a family hotel with pictures and momentos throughout. The dining room is all right. The hotel is convenient to all things in... More

This is a nice basic hotel with very helpful staff. Room was clean with plenty of room. The hair dryer was hopeless not only did it not dry effectively but the plastic pipe kept on falling off when the dryer got too hot. Breakfast was very average, on our first morning it appeared that the bread had been cut some... More

Pleasant enough and very kind hosts who actually gave us a ride up the hill with our bag...it is difficult to drive near the hotel and to get your bags to the lobby so we decided to leave our bags (a no no in Italy) having paid 4 Euro 50 at the parking shack for the display ticket and take...

Stayed overnight. Walked up hill with luggage which was a bit difficult. A friend who had booked us in asked for rooms with the antique furniture but we were told not available so we would have to do with the modern rooms. What modern rooms? The rooms were clean but the toilet leaked and the tank took ages to fill... More

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel for a few days back in May. It was close to everything to see. Lots of little touristy shops, cafés, restaurants, and the most wonderful views, being so high on a mountain, and an ancient castle and church only a little walk away. Breakfast was European style with all you would wish to... More

We stayed in this hotel in November and it appeared we were the ONLY guests. I am sure they are quite busy during the tourist season. It is a very sweet little hotel, spotlessly clean, run by an older couple and their extended family. Extremely reasonably priced. We had dinner in the hotel and it was good basic Sicilian food...

The welcome was the warmest that we had in Sicily! The food was wonderful and there is a superb delicatessen just next door to the right. The rooms we found were fairly small and the bathroom was difficult to decipher. The shower was not ideal, however in the grand scheme of things, this nowhere near tarnished our opinion of the...

This family run hotel is all about living the Sicilian experience. The hotel owner is also a restauranteur with a professional touch, who cares about the guests and their well-being. The hotel is not pretentious or posh but is nicely appointed and beautifully clean. The reception staff are welcoming and speak various languages. Hotel Moderno is situated right in the... More

The hotel is clean, comfortable and well located if you don't mind a walk up from the public car park. Bathroom was a bit a small but that's not unusual for Sicily. Friendly staff. One tip. If you're staying in Erice make sure you buy a weekly parking ticket. They are available from the shack near the bus stop and... More

We spent to nights in Erice with our twelve-year old daughter. I highly recommend this place -- while not fancy, it is clean, comfortable, and an excellent value. We had room 37, which has a small balcony overlooking the street. While the room is very simply furnished, I was struck the cleanliness of everything in the room, the sheets, and... More
