Alhambra is by far the best place to stay in Giarre / Riposto. Centrally located between Catania (major city), and Taormina (tourist mecca) and the beaches at Fondachello and Fuimifreddo. Easy access to the great shopping street in Giarre (Corso Italia) and dinner options. Riposto is just down the Corso another kilometer. Simona and her family run a clean, efficient,... More

The B&B is lovely with very spacious rooms and high ceilings. Bathroom very well appointed. Giarre is well-placed if you want to visit Taormina, Etna and Catania and is a much cheaper option than Taormina for example. If this is what you are looking for then this B&B is ideal. However, Giarre itself is not very nice and not much... More

our experience with this b&b has been perfect.... when you arrive you feel welcome, and a guest of the house, rooms are wonderful romantic, clean and equipped with everything you need, the fresco's on the ceiling are that extra touch. parking space is available on the property. You can ask Simona something 10 minutes after you have the right information.... More

Travelling through Sicily we learned that B&Bs were often better than hotels and this was a classic example. B&B Alhambra is located in a beautiful villa within walking distance of the centre of town. Since it's in suburbia it is a quiet location as well, important for light sleepers. The hosts were lovely, welcoming us into their home. We were... More

We enjoyed a lot staying at Alhambra, exellent location to visit the easter side of Sicily. The room was super clean, big enough and elegant. Great breakfast, really everything you may like ... we've had also Granita on sunday. Leaving was sad but it's just a "see you soon again"!

We admit to a feeling a bit of trepidation as we drove down the street towards B and B Alhambra. The area looked a bit suspect, but maybe we were just exhausted after travelling for 22 hours from Canada, and having no luggage. Lufthansa lost it somehow. The Lufthanza rep seemed to think it was unrealistic of us to expect... More
