“An enjoyable two weeks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2009

I'm happy to post a review, a very positive one, and I'm surprised that until now no one has suggested the Hotel Villa Romana as a place to stay while in Piazza Armerina. My wife, young daughter, and I stayed two weeks at the hotel, as part of a high school student exchange (the HS students, including my son, lived with Italian host families).

Rooms are small by American standards, but well-furnished and comfortable. Our room had a satellite TV, with CNN and BBC, though we rarely turned it on. The en suite bathroom had a full shower. There was never any shortage of hot water. Best of all, rooms were cleaned daily, very thoroughly, with clean sheets on the bed and fresh towels in the bathroom.

Breakfast was a simple affair, with food laid out on a table in the restaurant. It included juices, milk, rolls, cereal, and sometimes cheese and meat. You could call it a continental+ breakfast. Also, there was an automatic barista-style coffee/expresso/cappucinno maker, which you could operate yourself and make any kind of drink you wanted.

We never ate dinner at the hotel, in part because it was frequently booked at nights for private events (a good sign, I think) and we wanted to try out nearby places. The dinners served, however, looked quite good. Regarding other restaurants, there are a dozen or so all within 1-10 minute walking distance. It's hard not to eat well in Sicily generally and Piazza Armerina in particular.

There is a small bar in the hotel, just before the door to the restaurant. It was an ideal place to pick up a drink in the afternoon or evening.

There is an elevator, good for hauling suitcases up to rooms and using it yourself when a little fatigued from walking up and down the streets of Piazza Armerina, which is a hilly town.

The hotel is centrally located. The duomo is only about 10 minutes away, walking, up Via Roma. A variety of shopping is a little further, about 15 minutes away on foot, though there is also some just down the street, for example, an inexpensive clothing store. Some of the best bargains, by the way, are ceramics, which the area is famous for.

What made our two weeks all the more enjoyable was the staff. The front desk staff was always friendly and helpful. They even cajoled our little daughter into speaking Italian, for example, asking for the room key in Italian rather than English. Cleaning staff, too, always had a cheerful word in the hallway.

I recommend the hotel highly and definitely would stay there again.
