My husband and I have just returned from a holiday in Sicily. We spent our first three nights at this delightful hotel. I agree with other reviewers that the hotel is slightly run down and the carpets are definitely past their 'sale-by date', however our bedroom was huge, and very very comfortable and we enjoyed our spacious marble bathroom. There were plenty of drawers and cupboards (something often rare in newer hotels) and we really appreciated the clean pillowcases and sheets each day. There is a really good 'feel' to this hotel. The staff are all delightful, and the public areas full of character. We loved our breakfasts with the sparkling wine, fresh fruit and selection of cold meats and cheeses. As previous reviewers have commented, the hotel is well placed for the Opera, churches etc., and is within easy walking distance of the better shops on the Via del Liberta. We would certainly stay at this hotel another time.
