Great experience staying at Hotel San Domenico in October. We had a car which is a little challenging driving up to Erice and through the narrow streets of the town, the very kind and helpful owners came with us to park. Location right in the center, beautiful walks within the town to yummy restaurants. We had a "fun" drive back... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at Hotel San Domenici, a charming, family run hotel, located near the restaurants and shops of Erice, an adorable medieval village in Sicily. The hotel is spotlessly clean. The furnishings are nice. Our room on the top floor had a large terrace with two lounge chairs, a small table and chairs,... More

We stayed one night and had higher expectations. Location-wise very well placed in the center of Erice. Room was clean and comfortable but were disappointed with the toilet not flushing properly, no TV remote control available, wifi was not given at the check-in, the host held our passports until check-out and would not accept other documents in exchange. We paid... More

Stayed in this beautiful historic hotel for a night in September. The room was full of character as you would expect in an ancient mountain stronghold. Delightful inside garden terrace. Breakfast a bit minimal. Wonderful to walk about the extraordinary old cobbled streets after the tourists had gone and in the early morning to see the incredible views. Exciting drive... More

Stayed here for one night on a trip to Erice. This is a very conveniently located near the main piazza. The hotel has been constructed with great attention to detail using old materials which is simply beautiful and the place is charming! The owner is very nice and helpful and overall we had an excellent day.

If you don't like Erice then you probably have little taste. The town is perched a top a mountain of Marble and the streets are paved in it. The hotel San Dominico is more so an old villa that has been painstakingly transformed into a most worthy Bed and Breakfast. Family operated and Very well executed from the moment we... More

The owners could not have been more helpful. We arrived by motorbike and they took us to a good parking place for the bikes and then guided us back to the hotel. The room was clean and bright and comfortable and almost silent overnight. We left early the next morning after breakfast so our stay was brief but this hotel... More

Above all - the owners attitude was the worst part - Many things did not function properly or were not as published (we paid extra for the "terrace" when actually there was hardly place to stand there), you needed special training to flush the Toilet and we literallyfreezed to death during evening and night But the worst part was the...

worst stay ever! We were received by a rude man that even shouted at us! Could only speak an incomprehensible italian (altough we had been having success with our efforts to speak the language). Place was the more expensive we stayed in the whole trip (and we stayed in 5 and 4 star hotels which actually deserved their stars). Breakfast... More

The hotel San Domenico has its charm, but its main quality is its reliability, in a region where travelers do not often feel that welcome, and where bad surprises are abundant! The hotel is clean, rooms have good beds what is needed, some of them -the largest ones- are quite nice, others are too small, dark and really dull. Breakfast... More
