I suspect and regret that this will be the final review of Palazzo Hedone, but we greatly appreciated the opportunity to enjoy the hospitality and imagination of Axel and Sylvain. The Palazzo was normally only open to groups, so whatever divine intervention that allowed us to spend a week was divine indeed! We had begun our extended vacation in Sicily... More

We booked Palazzo Hedone for a get together with friends. We stayed for a week and had an amazing time. Axel and Sylvain (the owners) were charming and always helpful, nothing seemed too much trouble. The rooms are spectacular and well appointed, the location is right in the historic heart of the baroque town of Scicli. The Palazzo looks over... More

My wife and I stayed at Palazzo Hedone for 2 nights because another hotel was booked. The biggest plus about staying here was the service and the relaxing atmosphere. Ignacio and Sylvan were really helpful in recommending restaurants, making other bookings for us at other points in our itinerary, and making us feel like if we needed anything that they'd... More

Arriving in this beautiful palazzo makes you feel coming at home welcomed by the 2 gentile owners. The location of this palazzo is just breathtaking. typical Sicilian steps accompagnied with beautiful flowers bring you to the entrance door. I would advise to contact the hotel of your hour of arrival because the way up with your luggage is quite challenging.... More

We booked this hotel for two nights and ended up staying for five. We were lucky enough to stay before the season really started so pretty much had the place to ourselves, which is part of the reason we couldn't bring ourselves to leave. We also stayed in two different rooms, both of which were tastefully decorated but completely different.... More

Our hosts Axel and Sylvain have put a beautiful and personal stamp on a piece of Sicilan baroque heritage. The setting is fantastic and the welcome warm. Scicli is smaller and more laid back than its famous nieghbouring towns but provides an excellent base for visiting them - and the local marina - Marina de Ragusa - is very pleasant... More

We visited this charming hotel for a family break in early July 2010. Describing this as a hotel does not adequately capture the charm and elegance of the accomodation which has been beautifully restored. The public areas are stunning and the bedrooms are very individually and tastefully designed and we enjoyed the modern bathrooms. The atmosphere is very laid back... More

I have never written an internet review on hotels. But the stay with Palazzo Hedone was so special that I told myself that i have to write one. As the hotel is quite new, it hasn't quite appeared in guide books. I chanced upon it and decided to try it due to the beautiful pictures of the rooms on its... More

The hotel is a renovated period home set in the old part of town, and run by two partners who are progressively modernising the old home into a very classy residence. But be aware that this B&B is only accessible via some steep stairs, and the car must be parked in the streets below. However, Sylan and Axel are willing... More
