Reviewed December 13, 2012

Never underestimate the value of actually being able to find the hotel one has booked. The Artemis hotel is well located on the main road into town from the Motorway and is a short stroll into town and to the shore though not necessarily in the most salubrious of areas.
Great underground parking, comfortable rooms, good breakfast buffet.

There is nothing bad to say about the hotel (nice enough rooms, helpful staff, decent breakfast, etc.). The thing is that there seem to be better options at the same price (e.g. Astro is closer to the town and has sea views). So check the other places first and know that you are in good hands when you end up staying at the Artemis

Stayed here for 3 nights. Is well located only a short walk from the town and all of the sights. The staff on the front desk were very helpful and the room was very clean, good size and modern for this older city. Breakfast was acceptable but certainly not at the standard that we experienced at other hotels on this trip. The hotel offers WIFI in your room but as previous reviewers have noted it does not work well in your room, so you have to go down to the lounge to connect. For this reason and the quality of the breakfast I have reduced to four star.

This is a real nice, little hotel. Our rooms were big, clean, and we had a great shower. We had trouble getting the wifi to work in our room. It worked better at the other end of the hall, not ideal.

If you want to take a towel to the beach, the hotel charges you 4 or 5 euros to do so. Most hotels are happy to provide beach towels for free.

It was hard to get ice for drinks, sometimes impossible, if the little bar was closed, also frustrating, as my friend had a sore ankle that needed to be iced each day.

The staff was pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was good. I would stay there again.

The Artemis Hotel is on one of the main streets of Cefalu, but outside the historic center. It's two blocks from the seaside and a pleasant walk to all the sights. The hotel itself is modern and features comfortable rooms and a good breakfast buffet. There are no restaurants of note within easy walking distance so plan to take a taxi once you've parked the car in a lot a short distance away.

Cefalu is a fabulous place and Artemis the perfect place to stay while there. Staff are helpful and friendly, the lady at front desk gave us an umbrella one evening as it was raining. The breakfast is typical Italian, good variety but too many sweet options. The location is a stones throw to beach and a perfect walk to old town for dinner. Rooms are new and spotless, bathrooms are modern. Spent 12 days in Sicily and this was best hotel by far.

This hotel was clean and the staff were welcoming. The bedroom, bathroom and balcony were all good but for me there was something missing - a bit of character perhaps? We were on holiday, but it felt more like a business hotel. Breakfast was lacklustre - huge spread but barely any choice for those of us who don't wish to start the day with cake. All in all - not a lot wrong with it by any means, but for the price we paid I would have liked charm or a better breakfast. We were in a second floor room and the wi-fi was a bit hit and miss - if you managed to log on you didn't dare move an inch for fear of losing it.
