“Tranquillity at Tranquillo”
Reviewed January 23, 2012

I stayed here for the week in January 2012, and I have nothing but high praise for this establishment. I arrived on a Sunday afternoon and was picked up by my host, Mauro, at the train station after I phoned ahead. The room was clean and immaculate, and I had the full use of a kitchen which was had all the mod cons. The highlight of the stay was the generosity of the hosts Mauro and his father (Guiseppe?). I was brought a fresh breakfast every morning, and each one was different: croissants with ham and cheese, pastries stuffed with spinach and pancetta, freshly baked bread with sausage and cheese; it was absolutely lovely. The logistics of Tranquillo are also ideal, just 200m from the central train station, and less than ten minutes walk from the main centre.

My only regret was not being able to say a proper goodbye to the hosts on my last morning because I had to leave at the last minute very early. Mauro texted me and said his father had prepared sandwiches for my trip home! Needless to say I felt realy bad about this. If you visit Agrigento, I would recommend Tranquillo highly. And a note to Chris Andrews, a previous reviewer (and fellow brummie!), Mauro and his father still remember you from last year.

We stayed for a week here in sept 2011. It is situated very close to the old historic centre about 250m and a 5 minute walk and bus ride to the Valley of Temples. It is located in a quite area next to the ministry of labour . The room is sizeable and nicely decorated and comes complete with lots of tourist information, books were provided about some of the historic sites in english for our use, the bed was comfortable and sheets were changed every 3 days, the bathroom has an excellent shower. The kitchen is fully equipped which is a very big plus if you are on a budget or don't want to go out every night. Juice, milk, bottled water and fruit were kept stocked up in the fridge/freezer, the coffee maker is also stocked with ground coffee pods for use at any time. We were spoiled with very good typical Sicilian Breakfasts - pastries/cakes and Sicilian savouries, help yourself with biscuits toast and cerials. There is a balcony with flowers and plants which is for your exclusive use. It has a WIFI connection occasionally the thruput was very slow - but this was at certain times of the day it was ok during the evening. Pino the owner is very friendly, accommodating, generous and helpful!

We will be back next time we visit Agrigento, we can highly recommend B&B Tranquillo.
