“Perfect little hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

We have spend two vacations on Hotel Sylesia and on both times everything has been perfect! Honestly, if we could we would give them six stars!

Hotel Sylesia is in perfect location for a relaxing beach holiday as well as for exploring Sicily (near mount Etna, Taormina, Godfather movie scenes and so on). The atmosphere of Letojanni village is also very welcoming and there aren't too many tourists either.

The hotel is clean, rooms are very nice and well maintained. The breakfast is also very good and always served on time. There are always fresh fruits, warm croissants and good coffee (just to mention few).

What really makes the hotel so perfect though is the staff. You really can't find more friendly people! They really make you feel right at home. We feel that they are not just staff anymore for us, but dear friends who we hope to see also next summer. :)

Warm regards from Finland!

Sini, Miika and boys

If you were thinking of a nice and relaxing place close to the sea, go somewhere else ! Here, you're beside the road, the highway and the railway...and you can admire the huge pylons sustaining highway from your room...what a romantic view ! The room is very tiny, the decor is sinister and commodities are counted ( you have one tiny load of soap and it's not reloaded every day). The breakfast is very bad quality ( industrial products, one kind of fresh fruits, the bread is dry and hard ) and cherry on the cake : the boss is always turning around, giving you the impression to watch you and to count the amount of food you take. More, the boss has never smiled to us when we were there, we could barely hear his buongiorno.
I'm not used to criticize with no justification but this time it worths it as we paid more for this bad experience than we just did in Agrigento for a nice and cheap place.
Even if it's more expensive, go and stay in Taormina that is much more attractive than sad Letojanni.

The cozy hotel is offering good service on Sicilian way. It can be recommended as a good starting point for exploring the eastern part of Sicilia. I really spent an excellent time with my family on 35 anniversaries of my marriage.

We stayed here because we wanted to be in the Taormina area. We were so glad to discover the little town of Letojanni. Very clean town and less hectic than staying in Taormina would have been. Nice breakfast in the lobby. Daytime manager didn't speak much English but there was an employee in the evenings who did and he really helped us out. Free parking on street in front of hotel.

We've just spent 3 nights in this small, family-run hotel. It offers good value for money, it's clean and the staff are very friendly. Not all of them speak English, but that wasn't a problem. It's close to the beach and all amenities. The sun terrace could do with a couple of sun loungers, but otherwise everything was as described and we enjoyed our stay.
