I spent 1 night in CityBed. The hotel has a modern and minimalistic design. The room was only furnished with a double bed, a wardrobe built into the wall, one bedside and one chair. It had a wooden floor and no carpet. It was very clean.
The public area was maintained in the similar style with some comfortable white (if I remember correctly) sofas, armchairs and tables distributed around. There was also MAC PC over there connected to the internet which one could use for free.
The breakfast was very simple: coffee and some sweets.
The hotel is located 10-15 min. walk from the train station.
- The price of the room was 15 Euros more than in another nice B&B located earlier in the same street and also recommended by the Lonely Planet (checked).
- The biggest disadvantage were the opening hours of CityBed. The hotel is closed between 10am and 3pm and nobody will arrive to allow you to check-in if you come between those hours. I arrived from Palermo around 12.00, called the owner (telephone was written next to the ring bell) and he refused to come (mind that he only speaks Italian which farther complicates the problem. I used Spanish). Fortunately, I left my backpack in another B&B (run by very warm and gentle lady in which I planned to stay for the next night) in order to visit the temples. If one plans to arrive to Agrigento early (and for one day only) I thus strongly suggest to book a room in another B&B. Otherwise you will risk visiting the temples, which are located out of the city (10 min. ride by bus from the central bus station), with a backpack on your back.
For these reasons I give CityBed three instead of four stars.
