We stayed at this hotel for ten nights. It is situated almost ten minutes walk from the airport shuttle-bus stop. Which saved us a more expensive taxi fare. When they were there the reception staff were helpful. The hotel decor is olde worlde but well suited.
Our room was large with ample wardrobe space and a room safe. However the bed was a little too firm for my liking. TV was fine.
The bathroom was nice with a shower over the bath. Bathrobes were provided which was a welcome addition. Towels were changed daily, bathing accessories shampoo etc. were replenished, also there was a box of tissues, it was all kept very clean.
Breakfast was served in a charming room and was varied and plentiful, the usual juices, pastries, breads, cold meats, cheeses, cooked eggs, bacon, mushrooms, tomatoes, cereals, fruit and coffee. It was included with the room price.
Serving staff and Bar staff were very helpful and friendly.
The hotel was centrally situated to visit almost all tourist attractions and shops on foot. We used the bus service to reach Monreale and the coastal town of Mondelo.
I liked this hotel and would recommend it.
