Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stated 3 nights... was deciding between this and another hotel but I am glad I stayed here. Upon check in we were offered a room with a balcony for an extra 10 Euros per night. Really glad we accepted as the view was great! The shower was a little small and WiFi not the fastest but apart from that everything was fantastic for the price. The location was spot on - could walk everywhere we needed - we parked our car in the private car park for 6euro per day, 5 minute walk to the hotel - the view from the rooftop terrace was amazing - staff were great - clean rooms I would stay here again!

It's a budget choice, but the service, breakfast, room and cleanliness was more than satisfactory. The best thing about the hotel is the location, it's just a few minutes walk to anywhere in Cefalù, including the beach. The roof terrace is a great place for a glass of wine in the evening. Would stay here again!

Stayed for 2 nights in September. Hotel is very centrally located in old part of Cefalu. Very happy with our room on the 2nd floor - room was relatively small and bathroom was a bit tight for space but has most things you need. Our room overlooked the street and had a small juliet balcony - didn't notice much street noise - Via Veterani didn't seem to carry a lot of traffic, at least when we were there. Hotel has a roof top terrace which was a great place to have a drink watching the sun go down. Breakfast was good although the coffee machine which supplies all was a bit on the slow side. Staff were helpful - got good recommendation for restaurants nearby.

This hotel was nicely located, clean, and quiet. The reason I am writing a review is the consideration of the person at the desk the day we checked in. He noticed that it was my husband’s birthday when he looked at our passports. He did not mention the fact that it was my husband‘s birthday but when we returned from exploring there was a nice bottle of red wine and glasses in our room with a card from the hotel. I found this gesture very touching and really appreciated it. It was fun to bring the bottle of wine to the restaurant to enjoy wiith friends who are traveling with us

We decided to stay here because of vicinity to city center and parking place. When we reached the reception, it turned out there is no parking for us there and we had to park on the city parking 15 mins walking distance. Beside this inconvenience, we had a good stay, the city center is very close, 5 min distance, the staff were good. There was no view from the room outside, no balcony. The breakfast choices were nice though. There was a restaurant near and what woke me up was a cook hammering meat. My rate is based on the price we payed for this.

The hotel is very well located, just a couple of blocks from the Cathedral. Its staff is nice and cooperative, the premises are clean and breakfast is decent. However, the rooms are dour, may need an overhaul and don't have a view. Plus, the nearest parking lot is one kilometre away. Were it as inexpensive as most Italian hotels in this category, one could dispense of such amenities, but at 70 euro the night for a single it could well be the most expensive two-star hotel I've ever booked.

Response from hotel-lagiara, Responsabile relazioni con la clientela at Hotel La Giara
Responded 6 May 2017
We have to make some clarifications: our single rooms have not this price; this is the price for a double room. The hotel has 3 stars and not 2. It is situated in the historical centre and it is normal that some rooms have not an open view...we have a panoramic terrace that has a wonderful view!! In every town it is not possible to park the car in the historical centre...we have a garage, a little garage that has a cost. Usually people goes to park in some place where it is possible to leave the car. Hotel La Giara is situated in the heart of the historical centre of Cefalù and when people reserve a room knows that will found merits and defects of the centre.

Although the hotel itself is charming in a little street of Cefalu and definitely great value for your money. Bed was uncomfortable, shower unpractical and roof top a bit run down. Not sure I would stay here again.

We stayed at La Giara 3 years ago when we were on a Rick Steve Sicily tour. When we came back to Sicily on our own we did not want to miss Cefalu or La Giara. The location near the Duomo is great. The rooms are small but very clean and tastefully appointed. The staff is gracious. There is also a rooftop terrazzo with wonderful views of La Rocca, the Duomo and the sea. Che bello posto.
