The hotel is very central, just above the Duomo. But its elevated location creates an oasis of tranquillity away from the noise and bustle of the main street. The wide Terrace on the castellated roof has spectacular views over the sea and towards Mount Etna. Our room, a junior suite on the third floor had views over town and sea. The Moorish architecture and design theme is unusual, but works well in context. Best of all is the warmth of welcome by friendly, professional and helpful staff, who are unfailingly courteous and go out of their way to ensure a happy and comfortable visit. The absence of a swimming pool is more than compensated by the hotel's partnership with the Paradise Beach Lido at Letojanni, with a pickup and drop off service from the hotel. The restaurant was closed for dinner during our stay but there are many fine restaurants within a short walk of the hotel. In summary, an unusual and excellent boutique hotel with an unforgettable location and wonderfully friendly and helpful staff.
