Described as an old palazzo: room was spacious, with balcony overlooking the street (necessary to close balcony windows at night because of occasional noise; daytime not noisy). Elements of the decoration were good, but, the overall impression was of highly functional, cheap rooms - not luxurious by any means. Does have large communal terrace with tables and chairs, overlooking the... More

Stayed in August with family - 4 of us. Had a fantastic stay at Dolce Vita. Staff very friendly, room cleaned every day which we did not expect. Stayed in the apartment, overlooking sea with small private terrace and just up steps to the large shared terrace with its fantastic view where we brought food and drink back to a... More

yes, it's in central position but that means really noisy room. The added beds ( we were 4) were positioned against a fridge and the air conditioning in the main room was a fan. I can understand that we were in August, but it has been really expensive for the offered quality and services. Clean

Our family room slept 4 nicely (two rooms plus shower-room) and opened up to the wonderful terrace with spectacular sea views. Rooms are fairly basic but have air-conditioning, free wifi, small fridge in room, towels provided. Helpful staff who provided a good restaurant recommendation. Very central location about two minutes from the cathedral. Parking is about 10 minutes away and... More

What more could you ask for? The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly and helpful, the terrace had a wonderful view, and it's well situated so you could walk everywhere. Not a ton of frills but everything you need. We were there in the off season and enjoyed most of the place to ourselves.

A terrific stay in a quaint second-floor inn directly overlooking the ocean. Fantastic views. Antonio very fair; terrific guy. Great seafood restaurant just next door. The hike up the mountain overlooking the town is a highlight.

The B&B has a wonderful view from the rooftop, it is in a great location, the staff is friendly and helpful and the rooms are clean. We did think the B&B was a bit overpriced, but it could just be Cefalu in general. The bed and pillows were not the most comfortable. But we enjoyed our stay at Dolce Vita.

This B&B has some beautiful rooms at seaside and they'll advertise with it. We made a reservation far in advance, but unluckily we got a room at the streetside. The balcony was above a place were, in the evening, the local bars and restaurants collect garbage and empty bottles until midnight, with a lot of noise. Early in the morning... More

In Summer Cefalu' is of course full of turists everywhere and we understand that a room with street view could be noisy, but not always, because each room has double glasses... All the customers wish like to have see view rooms but unfortunately it is not possible, so we give them usually if only they are avaible or on request... More

We stayed in cefalu for only 2 days but it was a very pleasant experience. Hotel is located very nice and has a cosy terrace above the sea. Breakfast was included in price (coffee, croissant and juice in the cafe on duomo square).
