This hotel in great if you like upscale American type hotels It has everything but charm. It is well appointed, large rooms, helpful staff, an elegant décor. It was a little noisy, but that wasn't the hotels fault. The restaurant was very "posh" with two or three tuxedo clad wait staff to see to your every need. They even had... More

This hotel is world class - a pearl that is found in a small but beautiful province in sicily called Enna. The hotel is immaculate, beautiful, classic and brand new - the reception area is delightfully welcoming, the restuarant (one of around 4 in the hotel) on the reception is elegant and classically dressed - the reception staff are helpful...

The rooms were huge, very clean and well appointed. The hotel is in a quiet location but if you want to eat out you'd need a car or order a taxi as there is nowhere else within easy walking distance. Sited down a surprisingly tiny road which isn't easy to find. Car park a little small for the size of... More

This is the first time the TA reviews failed me. I booked this hotel thinking it would be a welcome respite after four intense days of travel in a whirlwind trip around Sicily, giving us a nice place to stay away from a city center while allowing us to go visit Enna. We pulled in (driving) around 2 in the... More

Modern hotel with excellent facilities with amazing views of Enna old town. This is a beautifully maintained hotel that has spacious modern rooms and common areas. Unlike many other hotels in Sicily this hotel 'works' although it does have a few quirks! If you are looking for a modern hotel with great facilities, good air conditioning and large clean pool...

Stayed here for one night only during a recent trip to Sicily. We missed the turning, but managed to turn around and go back again, down a small road. Hotel is very large and grand with ample parking. Took a while to check in as there was a group checking in before us and there was only one person on... More

This luxurious and big complex, located in the middle of waving grain fields, is probably good for conferences and weddings, but not so good for travellers who want to experience Sicilian hospitality. We were two members of a small group of travellers (on a Savouring Sicily Tour). Our welcome at reception was reasonable, but the delivery of luggage to the... More

A highlight of this relatively new and luxurious big complex is the size of the rooms (including the balcony in most cases) - Breakfast of high standards and variety, attentive service both in the restaurant and at reception. A small defect might be the official checkout time of 10.00 a.m., however, when we asked about it before having consulted the... More

Hotel Federico II comes out the middle of nowhere in (lower) Enna. Very big hotel and no other stay around comparable right in the middle of Sicily. The rooms are almost gigantic in size but can cause a slightly "cold" feeling. Breakfast is ok, staff is friendly and speaks a fair English. Overall quality in the upper half, the hotel... More
