These rooms are right on the coast, most rooms have balcony's and all have access to a shared terrace overlooking the sea at the back. The room I had was clean, tidy and well presented and the staff are pleasant and helpful. There was a 'problem' with their card machine (that old chestnut!) so had to get cash but not... More

There is no security door between the street and your hotel door. At 5 am, I awoke to someone trying my door handle. I called to my friend next door and a man was at my door saying he was looking for reception for a room in broken Italian. He kept knocking on my door saying to let him in... More

We stayed only 1 night, but we were very satisfied. Great location, in the heart of the amazing Cefalu. The room and bathroom are really small, but for sleeping it is enough. Small but clean - thats important. You can use the spacious terrase, specially in the evening after long walking is really beautiful. Owner is nice and helpfull. Breakfast... More

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

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.
