Le Case Del Girasole
Ranked #31 of 36 Hotels in Cefalu
Reviewed May 13, 2013

In all fairness, this is budget accommodation, so one shouldn't expect much and I will attempt to be balanced. There are 3 apartments - A,B and C. We stayed in B. Things I liked about it: a good location, in the old quarter; doors off the kitchen and bedroom open to a small balcony overlooking the street; it does have air conditioning (although there is only 1 unit which is in a strange 'inner' windowless area which has another double bed, 3 upright chairs and a TV); the apartment gets the morning sun until approx. 2 p.m.

What I didn't like: Arranged to meet Guiseppe at 1130 to get the key to gain access. Sat in the street with our bags until 1150 when I rang him again and he arrived 15 minutes later. Not a good start. Therefore, in my experience, access difficult and unreliable. Big cracks in the walls and tiles, décor tired and everything a bit battered looking. Apartment clean but cutlery perhaps washed by previous occupants and not so clean. Sheets/towels extra - 15 Euros per night (this adds up!) and you make your own bed. No tea towels. The funny 'inner room' with no windows dark and depressing. Shower nozzle held together with an elastic band and toothpick and the hot water comes and goes during a shower.

Accommodation in Cefalu may be expensive. Certainly we stayed in Palermo for the same money in much superior accommodation (Residenza Wagner for anyone interested). But I wouldn't recommend this place. Personally, I'd rather pay for something better.

Room Tip: I think apartment A may have a view of the sea.
