B&B Monastero Santo Spirito
Ranked #191 of 226 Agrigento B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 22, 2012

We reserved a larger room but received a room just big enough for the bed. The bathroom smelled so bad we had to keep the door shut so we could breathe. Breakfast served by the nuns was homemade and good but they were all like deserts. The place is extremely hard to find. The nuns were nice but this was one of the worst places I have stayed. Cantbelieve it was rated so high.

The B&B is run by a lovely nun who provides spotlessly clean rooms and ensuites. There is also a communal kitchen and dining room so particularly suitable if travelling in a group as we were. This is very centrally located but is still very quiet. We had no hot water and this was fixed within the hour - obviously the local plumber is on hand for the nuns! Breakfast was a wide selection of pastries, biscuits (some freshly baked and still warm) and fruit. Overall, lovely place to stay and great value for money.

This place is confortable as living in your own house but in the core of the historical center of Agrigento. Very quiet and close to the main attractions of the City. Is well equipped with a kitchen, two TV set and a big dining room. Not to talk about the nouns hospitality... and their sweets... Can you imagine "sweet cous cous" with pistachio seeds... delicious.... you've got to try this.
