“Nice apartment and nice owner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

The owner of the apartment is very friendly. I felt at home. In the morning you get a little basket with fresh bread, marmelade, juice, fruit, croissants. There is an espresso maker with coffee for free! (Also tea!).
We had a little kitchen and a beautiful bathroom.
And on top of it: you get a key for a little supermarket. So you can get wine, water, beer, pasta, etc. whenever you like!

The location is good. The room is big and all facilities are nice.Before we arrived hotel, staff sent us SMS about how to reach the hotel. The staff is really friendly. Because we left hotel in early morning, so staff gave us breakfast in advance. It was really comfortable to live here.

We stayed here for one night. Before reaching there, Marco sent an SMS on how to reach the hotel. It is in a great location - just 50-100 meters from Agrigento's main street. We recieved a warm welcome. Marco is very friendly as well & helped us on how to go to Valle dei Templi with public transport. Also, the room was big enough with small kitchen facility, A/C as well as heating, very good wi-fi & clean. Shared bathroom was also clean. Small mini market & Pizza ordering were extra facilites. Nice systematic hotel, I would say. And the breakdfast - too good to see a basket full of fresh items. Even though it was full of sweet items only, but seeing it fresh we were happy. We would definitely go back again if we go to Agrigento & recommeng to others too. Thank you Marco.

Room Tip: I think we stayed in room 151. This was good.

We just stayed in the hotel for a night.it is a really nice hotel with convenient location, sufficient facilities, delicious breakfast. If the reception could open more time, and reply the guest's email faster, it would be perfect!

Great place, comfortable, clean, good breakfast, even has a washing machine (no dryer) in the room - we had a studio. Helpful, friendly staff. A bit hard to find, but so are most B&Bs in Agrigento. There are a lot of stairs in and out of the area, but that is Agrigento. We didn't do any cooking here, but the comments on the kitchen equipment by Plymouthtraveller8 are correct. We would stay here again, though, since we liked it very much.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

We have just returned from 4 nights self catering in the Fiore di Girgenti in mid January. We rented a studio apartment with "bedroom, bathroom & kitchenette and we were dissapointed with the facilities on offer.
On our visit to Sicily we stayed in 3 different self catering establishments, this was the most expensive (daily rate) and the least equipped of the 3
Let me say that the owners were very helpful and polite and the studio was clean and tidy when we arrived. What we did not expect to find was;
-the only cooking facilities were a very slow 2 ring portable electrical hob which rested on top of a small microwave which in turn was resting on the fridge. The slow ringed hob took 18 to 20 minutes to boil sufficent water in a small kettle to make 2 mugs of hot drinks.
- the cutlery and crockery are a mis-match (odd plates & cutlery) and the plates were mainly plastic.
- after we contacted reception the 2 worn out & scratched frying pans were replaced with new pans but these were very thin and the bottoms bellied on their first use.
.-some wooden cooking implements were provided at the same time as the frying pans (as there were no items provided) but when we asked for a microwavable dish to use for cooking in the microwave (as there was no cooker) we were told to use the metal drip/overflow tray provided with the microwave which was itself well worn. When we declined to use this we were given 2 ceramic cereal bowls to cook our meal in!
- the area around the Fiore di Girgenti is fouled with rubbish and dog mess and parking was virtually impossible in the adjacent streets,so we parked our car in an underground car park which the Fiore recommended and was able to sell us a pass at a discounted rate for 4 days.
- the immediate area consists of a collection of very narrow streets and alleys (as it is on the edge of the old centre) which appear to house a significant immigrant population of which a sizeable percentage is unemployed and who watch you intently as you pass by. We felt relativly happy to walk through this area together in daylight but would certainly not wish to do so after dark.
The Fiore di Girgenti is a Bed & Breakfast establishment,but we were unaware of this at the time of booking through another website. If you wanted B&B and were prepared to walk the maze of streets after dark to find a resturant, then this apartment maybe suitable for you.

When we go away on holiday we do not expect to have to make do with inadequate cooking facilities and odds and ends of cutlery & crockery. We feel sure the owners would be dissatisfied if they had to accept similar when they go away! We would agree with the earlier review submitted by "martianwalrus" as clearly things have not changed. For me the test is always, would I stay here again? The answer in this instance would have to be NO!

Marco C, Proprietario at Fiore di Girgenti, responded to this review, February 13, 2013
Thank you for having stayed with us, but I regret that the kitchenette in your room has been not enough for your expectations.
I would just remind you that in your booking it was specified that it was a studio with a small kitchenette (small but with electric cooker, fridge, microwave, kettle, sink, dishes) but not with a large kitchen as you probabily imagined.
We have various types of apartments that have different prices: as also martianwalrus, you have chosen the cheaper type (€ 34 per night, 2 people) and not the apartment with full kitchen and a living room (€ 50 for night, 2 people). when you wrote to me to ask for availability on selected days, I have sent you photos and detailed description of the two apartments, you have made ​​a choice.

The rooms are clean and the service is great. With a convenient location to "downtown" and many of the historic sites there. Be aware that you are very near a church with some real bells, and near a busy street with some night-life.
