“Lovely view from our room.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

This hotel is all about style - but our round bed was very comfortable and we could look out at the cathedral from it! The staff were very pleasant and helpful - when we arrived there were two rooms available so they offered to show us both and let us choose. However on the minus side, the bathroom could definitely do with a bit of up-dating - it's distinctly tatty. We also missed having a room safe and felt that the air-con was a bit lacklustre.
Important tip - do not put Via Monte in your SatNav - although it will take you there - leaving is rather hair-raising as you're then in a one-way system built for donkeys and carts! Park in the square just before for free and save yourself a hair-raising experience (Tom-Tom's to be taken with a pinch of salt - our brand new one must have thought we were on donkeys).

Just returned from the beautiful Sicily. The highlight of the tour was Piazza Armerina.
We stayed for 4 nights at Suite d Autore in central Piazza Armerina. First the hotel
is very clean and has the most wonderful views of traditional Sicily. Our room faced the
main piazza. The hotel staff were kind and truly honest. The owner of this hotel also owned
a local tour guide company so you basically killed the two birds with one stone. Secondly and
most important to me was breakfast. His mother freshly baked authentic Sicily cakes and
biscuits for your belly. A must stay if you want to see the real Sicily.

My husband and I stayed three nights in early June 2012 and found the whole experience a delight. Located in the heart of Piazza Armerina, we walked everywhere and returned home to a sea of tranquility and peace. This is a beautiful hotel. The staff are amazing. They are so friendly, and helpful. They offer to do everything for you. The rooms are beautifully done, to a very high standard and have all mod-cons! We will always come back to this incredible Hotel whenever in Sicilly!!!

I stayed at the Suite d'Autore last March for my girlfriend birthday and the only reason I went there is because we previously stayed at the same hotel last August for my birthday and we couldn't miss another opportunity like this. The staff is totally and utterly friendly and helpful in any occasion (the smallest is the town you go and the better is the experience).

In both occasions we found a complimentary bottle of Champagne and a bowl of fresh strawberries by the bed....Great Start!!!



The room was very trendy even considering the fact that is a small and old town in the middle of Sicily, perfect for a romantic relax and about 90 minutes drive to the closest beach.

I strictly recommend to rent a car at the airport but not too big as some of the roads are a bit narrow and you can get stuck. Once you have it, feel free to drive everywhere as nothing is too far and every town has a few particular characteristic.

Also the local people, the food and the wine is what makes this island unbeatable.

I strictly believe that when you are on holiday all you need is relax and comfort and not technology, so switch off your phone, take off your shoes and just enjoy!!!

Have fun in the sun!!!

Very original and welcoming place, right in the centre of Piazza Armerina.
Every room has got its own character and piece of art which people can also buy (some of them).
Slept in the "lightness" room, modern and sophisticated.......Very good service...
Nice local staff and very good homemade breakfast; I still remember those nice shortbread with marmelade, everything genuinely home baked by the owner's mum......Lovely!!!
In general good value for money and the sympathy of the owner (Ettore) made the stay even more funny...
I definetly would recommend this place and to visit Piazza Armerina; a great gem in the heart of Sicily and sunshine...

We stayed at the hotel a couple of times already and everything exceeded expectations. The staff was very friendly and helpful, always happy to give you advice on what to visit, where to eat and other useful tips to get you around the island. The rooms were comfortable and clean of a decent size and each one of them is decorated differently so every time it feels like you are in a new place!
The location is just spot on, in the middle of the historic area of the city on top of the hill, and close to pretty much everything. Definitely a good place to stay!
