Nothing but compliments for this hotel. The Reception desk team were great. The service team were great and overall a great hotel.Our room had breathtaking views of the sea, Mt Etna and the town square below. What's really great about this hotel is that it is situated one street back from the busy main street, so it was very quiet...

After realizing we needed to pull into the street going the wrong way-- va bene-- we arrived at the hotel to find a smoking and supremely cold receptionist-- she offered little help re parking-- note - you have to reserve ahead-- but grudgingly assisted after a few words. The room was lovely but the a/c was overtaxed-- making for some...

This was a fantastic spot for us. Our room was beautiful and had a large sea facing terrace. Found all the staff professional and welcoming, and the breakfast was fine. Everything was kept very clean and check in/check out etc. was done professionally and efficiently. Loved the art around the hotel and thought the terrace bar was just great for...

We booked two rooms at this hotel through an online site, and when we arrived, we decided the representations made online about this hotel were false. For one, the hotel does not have WIFI in the rooms. They only have WIFI in the lobby and it was poor. They advertise to provide ironing service, laundry service, room service and a...

We booked a sea view room for our 5 night stay. The room was very large with a separate lounge area which led onto the small balcony with table and chairs. Our balcony was very small, but some other rooms had much larger ones. The decor in the room is a little tired, but the beds were comfortable. I was...

The staff were unhelpful, there was no control for the air conditioning and when we asked for one the answer was NO, this was also the answer for extra pillows. The shower was small and the shower head couldn't be adjusted because it was broken so if you were under four foot you were fine. The wi fi only worked...

We arrived at this hotel with a reservation through Booking.Com and after dragging our suitcases through the small cobblestone street arrived at reception to be greeted with a very sour and rude woman who told us 'sorry we are full we have arranged somewhere else for you to stay at comparable level and close by' . The hotel was definitely...
