This hotel was clean, well-maintained, and comfortable. The room lighting was very bright, there were several English language TV stations, and a safe in the closet. From our patio (Rm. #322), which faced west, we had a great view of the bay below and snow-covered Mt. Etna. Blackout, electric window covers block out the sun if you want to sleep in. There were many choices at the buffet breakfast.
Next to the hotel is a public park with beautiful views. The town, including the Greek amphitheater, is within walking distance. Expect hilly walks and narrow pedestrian walkways. If you have a map, there are shortcuts from the hotel to the major pedestrian walkway where you can find shops, restaurants, ATMs, etc. If you don't want to walk to the center of town, there are eateries along the narrow pedestrian walkways, e.g., exit the hotel, proceed to street level, turn left, walk straight up a slight incline rather than following the road to the right. On this pathway, you will see a market on the right and various restaurants. The one with a display case of fish on ice in the front is quite good. (Sorry, I didn't get a card with the restaurant name.) The menu is posted on two walls just outside of the restaurant. You can't get lost.
The negatives: Limited electric outlets, no clothesline in the bathroom, no coffee-maker, and no free WiFi. Because the dresser drawers were the closet, surfaces to place items are limited. Walls are thin: We could hear a noisy neighbor.
