“Ok for a few nights”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

We stayed with out baby son for two nights, the hotel was clean, rooms were spacious, rates reasonable, everything worked and on street parking was easy. The only thing to mention is that there were no staff on site over night from 21:00-8:00. The optional breakfast is fine.
Regarding the location, it is with in the walled city and the town and the port are not that far away as the crow flies, but the town is built on a very steep hill with lots of steps, we found it manageable with a buggy-walking the long way round but people with mobility problems might find sciacca a challenge.

This looks like a hotel but seems to be run like a B&B and as breakfast was an optional extra we decided to give it a miss. It served an overnight purpose and even had a self-contained kitchen area, but I wouldn’t have wanted to stay longer.

We booked this hotel as a stop over from Marsala to Agrigento. Although it was not easy finding our way through the maze of Sciacca, this hotel is worth the extra miles. Rebuilt from an old olive oil mill into a charming yet efficient hotel with large rooms and a good working bathroom. Everything was very clean. Rates (in June) were very competitive, at the same level as we paid for a B&B. Moreover, Sciacca is a cute, authentic little town. We went to a popular pizzeria close to the hotel, behind the church square, full of youngsters and couples. Great pizza too.
Only one hour driving to/from Agrigento, I would even recommend lodging in Sciacca for visiting the Valley of Temples. Definitely better value for money (and more fun) than the overly touristy places in Agrigento.

We were very surprised to find this bed and breakfast even better than we had anticipated. The room was large and clean, and the lobby supplied us with info and maps. The breakfast was outstanding, although we had to pay extra for it. Located in the old part of the city, and difficult to find, but close enough to walk to the center.

the hotel/b and b was beautiful, tastefully designed and furnished, we had a large room with a kitchen, was immaculately clean - a very comtemporary room, was ideal for the centre and sciacca is a lovely place. the hotel was quite hard to find as there are lots of streets and our sat nav didnt recognise the one way streets. the staff were helpful and welcoming. was a bit on the pricey side. the beach at nearby san giorgio was fabulous (about 6 miles away) which we found by accident. sciacca is on our list to visit again.

We visited Sciacca as I have family that live in a nearby town. We really like this hotel. It was very well maintained and looked freshly painted. The room was spacious enough for me, my husband and twin seven year olds. The temperature was perfect even though it was the middle of August, the room was nice and cool. The bathroom was modern with a good shower. It was very clean . The breakfast did get a bit boring, with the same bread, jam etc but this is to be expected as we stayed a week. It is a bit of a walk to the centre in the heat but we hired a car so it wasn´t a problem.

Incredible quality for this brand new hotel located in an old olive oil mill. The renovation was funded by the European Union : get back some of your taxes by staying there at a discounted price !
