Several locals told us this was the best hotel in Erice. I guess they read TripAdvisor! But few hotels in the world depend so much on the personal, physical, and emotional commitment of management as does the Hotel Elimo. Antonio and his mother are the air beneath the wings of this hotel. And they hire tireless young people like Alex... More

Erice is a mountain top village with cobble stones roads. Actually, the roads are little more then alley ways! We had a problem finding then hotel, so we pulled into a piazza, and walked to the hotel. Very charming people! My husband and one of the sons went and got the car, the son drove to the hotel and then... More

Once you arrive at the hotel (Erice is a medieval city with very narrow cobblestone streets), the hotel staff service is fantastic. They were very knowledgeable and willing to assist with all our enquiries. Also very accommodating with helping us with parking and fetching our car! There is a cozy, country style lounge area that looks like it would be... More

Service friendly and room quite large, but arranged over two floors with bathroom at the bottom and bed on the top and various places to bump your head in between. Breakfast very disappointing with no fresh or homemade items; milk was UHT and rest similar. The town is nice but only really worth a day trip. Very touristy and mediocre... More

We stayed at the Hotel Elimo in June, and were very pleased. We had a 2-level suite, with a cozy living room on the lower floor and a sleeping loft upstairs. There was a very effective a/c unit in the sleeping area, which made for a comfortable night's rest. The room was very clean and we enjoyed returning here after... More

We had a very comfortable stay at the very clean and well situated Hotel Elimo, in one of the best maintained ancient cities in Sicily. Antonio and his staff were very courteous and helpful, at all times. We definitely recommend this hotel and also a visite or two of the medieval town of Erice.

I could not rate this highly enough. We suffered a car breakdown on the way up to Erice, and the owner of the hotel came and rescued us in his car, and helped us communicate with the tow-truck driver when he arrived. The hotel was great, with enormous, comfortable rooms and friendly staff. I would recommend this place to everyone.

If you are planning to stay in Erice proper the Hotel Elimo is the perfect spot. Although driving in the town itself when finding Elimo is not for the faint of heart just consider it part of the Sicilian experience. Tip; the smaller the car the easier you will breathe. Parking also has its surprises but nothing that detracts from... More

We spent one night at Hotel Elimo, and we had a very good experience. The downstairs decor is quirky. Lots of souvenirs and mismatched rugs, all jumbled together in a charming way. The room was spacious, and the bed was comfortable. Everything was very clean. The location is great. The staff was very, very helpful and friendly. They will park... More

Comfortable, charming, and fabulous staff. Loved the old style lobby area - important since this is where I could get wifi. Odd bathrooms, but this building was pre-indoor plumbing so embrace the character. Lovely views over the valley from the dining/breakfast room. Taromina pottery, just a right turn out the door is unique in Sicily; and DeSimone is not as... More
