We planned a 3 night stay in this hotel. At first sight, we immediately loved the place since it combines well with the Christmas theme. It is situated at an altitude of 1096m and thus it has chances of snow. We were lucky that on our arrival we saw the place decorated for Christmas and there was also some snow....

Rather desperate to stop driving the amazing targa florio, we chanced upon this delightful spot and beautiful hotel. A charming old building, with a bedroom that was comfortable, clean and had a fab view over the mountains and town, what more could we want? Lovely staff, a local breakfast and a reasonable rate tops it off. Clearly the top hotel...

This was very enjoyable and comfortable. Welcoming receptionist. Wireless did not work despite different attempts. Breakfast selection is varied and delicious. Parking at the viewpoint is best since it is free and not time limited. Village is charming and very quiet.

If your travels in Sicily take you to the south side of the Madonie, I think that this is the best hotel/inn/b&b available to you. This is a smart little hotel, with gleaming wood floors and spacious rooms. It also is very clean. There always is someone at the front desk (at least at the times that I came and...

A tastefully restored building in scenic Petralia Soprana that has been converted into a very welcoming and comfortable hotel. The biggest selling point is undoubtedly the staff - who were genuinely eager to help make our family's stay a pleasant one. I highly recommend it!

We spent two nights here in the spring of 2015. It is a lovely, pristine hotel in a gorgeous small mountain village in the Madonie mountains. The staff arranged for a guide for our short hike in the Madonie through the Associazione Vivi le Madonie. Our guide was delightful and brought along a delicious rustic lunch. Very pleased with our...

Hotel Residenza Petra has it all! Excellent location in the center of town, spotlessly clean rooms, good WiFi connection, great breakfast, and above all, helpful, friendly staff! There is not a dedicated parking lot for this hotel but there are several options nearby. A hotel staff member e-mailed suggestions for parking and we didn't have any problem. We had a...

There's only so much a small hotel in a very small town can do, but this hotel does its utmost and everything about it is quite good. The rooms are a bit sparse, and the computer/tv is funky, but wifi on phones and iPads was just fine. Shower and beds were quite fine. The building inside and out is excellent...

Tastefully renovated, this hotel provided a welcome and warm retreat. All the staff were helpful and pleasant. The room was very comfortable and there were also a couple of spaces to sit and chat - not always the case in small hotels such as this one.

Yes, it's the only hotel in town, but it's also a lovely place to stay. The only drawback to staying in this town, is that there is also only one restaurant here, and it was fully booked. We ended up eating snack food for dinner, from a bar and a pastry shop. The hotel is spotless and well equipped. The...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
"Hotel Residenza Petra" is a renovated baronial building that preserved some parts of the original architecture and the "arte povera" period style. It is in the historic centre of Petralia Soprana, the highest village of the mountain chain of Madonie, at 1147 metres above sea level. Here silence is not a luxury and life flows slowly between evocative landscape and breathtaking sunsets. Fresh air, greenery and nature are excellent cure, both for adults and for children, to free your mind and your body from the stess built up in the cities. ... more   less
