Staying here with 3 friends on my first visit to Sicily, it proved a very good start. we arrived at 10:pm.Two twin rooms had become two doubles, but one room quickly remade as a twin, and my friend and I had a double room each for two nights and then a twin for final two. A bit irritating but no more than that. Rooms were good size, clean, comfortable beds and good air-con. Bathrooms were smart and clean, plenty of hot water. Breakfast was typical for this type of B&B, fresh fruit, yoghurt, juice, pastries, ham, cheese, tea and coffee, lovely girl on duty. We could also use it to make tea/coffee when we wanted. Good use had been made of the space, out and in, but it was rather cramped.
Altho' the little alley (via) leading to the hotel was rather narrow and dark, it was also quiet and in 20 paces you have the buzz and hum of Via Roma and Piazza Archimedes , which was a splendid place to sit and people watch. Italy is having hard times and I suspect Sicily more so, inevitably there are empty properties, shops for sale, etc.
All staff were charming and had a little English and tried very hard,someone there every evening to help with any queries.
GREAT PRAISE to the manager, who despite limited English assisted my friend who had left her purse (with euros and cards) on the plane at Catania. On our arrival, despite late hour, he tried contacting the airport and failing that took her to the local police station the next morning, explaining to them, helping to register her loss and speaking to airport police for her. Brilliant! The purse and contents were recovered and we have him to thank for that. Mille grazie!
