The accommodations are reasonable for the value and view. The view from the outdoor balcony side (the side you will want to stay) of the ocean and city below were beautiful. At times you are above the clouds. Nice quiet atmosphere. Breakfast accommodations were reasonable. The rooms are very simple...bed, night table, phone, desk and chair, closet and bathroom (balcony... More

Slept here for one night with friends. Hotel quite old but all worked fine. Breaksfat was ok too. The staff is very helpful. The view at the back of the hotel is amazing. You could just stay in the balcony and stare forever. The location is optimal for visiting Erice, all can be reached by walk. If I will be... More

We stayed for seven days at the Hotel Villa San Giovanni, and we had a pleasant, restful time. It it a friendly, helpful place. Good breakfasts. Excellent location. Stunning views. Central, but away from the noise of the other "tourist" streets. The bathroom in our room was small and the door was broken, but it was a minor irritant considering... More

Great cost-benefit. AMAZING view, from the rooms and from the breakfast location. People were nice but, as in many other places in Italy, you should better understand some italian to get along. Breakfast was not great, but ok.

We have spent our first night in Sicily in this hotel and it was the perfect start to a great vacation. Finding the hotel was a bit difficult, but this was in no way the fault of hotel - the evening can get quite foggy and navigating the narrow streets in a car while you can see only about 5... More

The hotel has the best location for the most outstanding view in Erice facing the sea, rock, the valley. We enjoyed the view from the very large balcony. The room was very basic though, no TV, quite chilly in spring time (we were in April) but had supplementary heaters and extra blankets. Tiny bathroom. If you need hairdryer, ask the... More

Location can't be beaten. The views from the hotel, if you get a room with a balcony facing the sea then you have some amazing views. I have never stayed in such a stunning location all my life and at that price (52 euros a night for a double room!) Heating was a bit iffy, my friend staying in another... More

I stayed here for 6 nights with a conference so I was pretty busy and didn't stay in the room except to crash, so the fairly spartan desk, single bed and one chaired cell plus ok bathroom and balcony didn't bother me, It's hard not to slam the doors, the way they must be locked but it was a quiet...

The hotel is a former monastery and retains some of the bare bones appeal. The best feature of the hotel is the spectacular view. The hotel is situated on a cliff overlooking the valley. Not all rooms have a view, so if it is important to you, you would need to request it. The rooms are clean and very serviceable... More
