“Charming hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

We enjoyed our stay at the Carmine Hotel. The rooms were standard, but comfortable.The garden was lovely, and the staff was very accommodating, especially Gaspare who recommended an excellent restaurant. It is centrally located. I would definitely stay there again.

Stayed at Carmine in June 2013. Really pleased with almost all aspects of the hotel. Room was nice with an outside balcony overlooking the garden, although not all rooms have this feature. Bathroom was fine but shower seemed unnecessarily small. Free wifi worked ok in the room, and breakfast was terrific if you like cake, which I do. If returning I would definitely stay there again. We did struggle to find it, having to park up and locate the hotel on foot. It was fine once it was in the sat nav, but sat nav initially took us to the wrong place, based on postcode, so I would advise making sure its set up right, otherwise you might waste a fair bit of time driving round.

The location is very nice but it was not easy to locate and parking is problematic...the room is small but sufficient if one is willing to stack things...the only disappointing part is that I can hear many things from the rooms around me...the guy next to me has a cold...breakfast is very nice...the staff is very friendly...no, I would not stay again.

Carmine Hotel is a charming and comfortable base for exploring the west of Sicily.
Beautifully restored with large and well appointed bedrooms (ask for one with a balcony
overlooking the garden), helpful staff and a very pretty enclosed garden.
A good breakfast with good choice of fruit, breads, cakes and cereals.

Room Tip: Ask for a bedroom with balcony overlooking the garden.

Lady on reception was not particularly welcoming when we arrived. However a younger member of staff showed us to our room and was helpful when we tried to use the computer in the bar area. Wi-fi access was extremely poor. The room was clean and had a pretty balcony to sit out on overlooking the lovely garden. The bathroom was small and the towels tatty. The hotel was in a good location for exploring old Marsala. Cars had to park away from the hotel overnight a couple of times a week for the square to be cleaned. Breakfasts were ok although they did run out of bread once and the fruit juice was not the best I have tasted. There were good restaurants nearby.

I agree totally with geolon's review but would question marinaheck's breakfast review. I am not a lover of cake for breakfast and would have liked some eggs, toast etc instead of cake.

It was "too cold" in the management's view to have breakfast outside which would have been spectacular - being english we felt the warm sunshine would have been perfect.

The management suggested a lovely restaurant nearby for dinner and the hotel is perfectly situated to visit the heart of Marsala which was very lively, clean and friendly on a saturday night.

Excellently welcoming, informative and helpful guy on the front desk had great recommendation for dinner. A lovely and imaginatively restored building with its own parking outside - unusual in the heart of a Sicilian city!
