“Beautiful Modern Resort Hotel in an Ancient City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

Artemis Hotel is a well located hotel with parking in Cefalu. It is not on the beach but an easy 5 minute walk to the old city and beach. The reception was very helpful with maps and suggestions for restaurants. The hotel room was clean, large by European standards and very modern. The breakfast was served in a lovely room with delicious home cooked foods!

We had a very pleasant stay, one night, at this hotel and would recommend it. Cafalu is a very popular seaside town and quite beautiful. The beach is fine sand and the old town special, but out of season.

This hotel appears to be a family run hotel. Very clean, efficient, friendly, excellent breakfast, large rooms, nice balcony and quiet.

We had a room on the side so no sea view but was very pleasant. Close to the beach. We would go again.

The restaurant was closed but plenty of places to eat. Unsure if a swimming pool.

We stayed here for 2 nights and enjoyed it as well as the town. Very nice breakfast buffet, private outdoor seating near the bar. Very helpful staff who spoke English, French and German (that we heard while there). Rooms and baths were very nice, clean and quiet. An easy walk to the old part of the city, which was interesting and beautiful, or to the sea. They have an arrangement with a private beach if you want to spend the day sunbathing (for an extra charge).

Been in Sicily several times but never in Cefalu. Found Artemis convenient to the old town (short walk) without the congestion. If you take a higher level room, you get to park for free in their own garage. Room ok, bath nice, breakfast mediocre, decent value. Cefalu is a lovely old town on the sea and worth a visit.

We loved the customer service, specially Mario on the front desk. It is well located, just 5 minutes walk to the ocean. Our room had a balcony with lots of sun and fresh air. Room was clean. Hotel was charming. Breakfast had freshly squeezed orange juice, great food.

We spent 5 nights in this hotel while touring around Sicily. We booked it based on recommendations on trip advisor.

Location
Hotel is situated on the main street in Cefalu, a short walk from the seafront and the oldtown. Secure free parking was availailable down the street. It is also within walking distance of the railway station.

Staff
Any staff we dealt with were really excellent. Friendly with lots of helpful suggestions, the receptionist gave us several recommendations for good restaurants. She also advised against taking the car to Palermo, a piece of advice we were glad we took. The staff in the breakfast room were really helpful and pleasant. I asked for an omelet and there was no problem with getting it, food was piping hot and there was a good selection. Bowls were replenished often. Lots of fresh fruit on offer as well.

Room
we had a very nice room with a balcony with side sea view. It was spotless and cleaned every day. The modern bathroom was clean and had enough good towels. Hairdryer was powerful unlike in some of the other hotels we stayed in during our trip.There was a terrace with sun beds and small jacuzzi pool opening off the corridor on our floor. There was also a mini gym.

We booked this hotel at short notice when we decided to visit some friends who were holidaying in Cefalu and we were very happy indeed with our choice.The Hotel is immaculate and must have been recently refurbished our room was on the top floor at the side with a good size balcony, walk in shower and very modern bathroom with a bidet too! We had a side sea view and although the road was sometimes busy and the train line was visible it was a very quiet location. There was free access to a small gym and a new jacussi hot tub on the roof solarium till 9.00 every night which was an extra bonus . Although the hotel doesnt have its own restaurant you will get a very nice continental breakfast as well as a free aperitif and nibbles (brioches, brucetta crisps ) in the evening before you go out.
Its placed very near the long and gorgeous sandy beach, and you are able to reserve your sunbeds via the hotel reception however ,if you want, you can walk to the old town in 10 minutes. There is a supermarket just behind Via Roma towards the beach if you want some extra snacks etc,plus, lots of bars, ice cream parlours and fashion shops.
Staying here was a contrast to the old medieval part of town and suited us a little better as it was quieter and the traffic was so much safer- as safe as italian traffic can be!
When walking in the old town which is a delightful mass of typical Sicilian medieval streets full of churches, shops and restaurants - be aware that even when some of the roads are closed to traffic that people will still drive down them only without their engines or lights on.
Enjoy Cefalu it has something for everyone,the old town is noisy, the locals are friendly and helpful but just be careful of the roads.

Room Tip: 4th floor was very nice indeed, top floor, quiet and some with views of the sea.
