This is a wonderful boutique hotel in the center of the historic city of Scicli: everything is within easy walking distance and the staff is very helpful and friendly at every turn. The TomTom made a mess of finding the hotel through the curving narrow streets, stranding the car in an alley a half-block away. The desk clerk who said it happens all the time, got the car unstuck, out, and around to the hotel. Check-in went smoothly after that: the room was a short flight of stairs up and had a lovely view over the nearby square.
The room was stylish and well appointed, with warm woods and indirect lighting. There was a comfortable bed, good internet, local television, and coffee/tea service. The bathroom was clean and well-appointed with a cascade shower and moderate hot water and pressure. Breakfast is a treat: a wide selection off local breads and cereals, cheeses and meats, fruits and local pastries. And a cappuccino with a smile on top.
The staff had outstanding recommendations for dinner and for a local wine shop, and provided a jar of local honey, very hard to find, on departure. Highly recommended!
