The hotel was very nice and clean. But Danilla made it more pleasant to stay there. She helped in setting up a tour of MT. Etna and arranged to get us to the bus station for our trip to Syracuse. She also set us up in a great hotel in Syracuse. She could not have been more helpful and accomodating... More

A great hotel in a great city. The view from their terrace is unbelievable, particularly in the evening when the city below comes to life. Their location is close to the main shopping area. I wish we could have spent more time there.

The rooms were clean and comfortable, but nothing spectacular. However, the vary large terrace was fantastic for our large group to gather. We were careful to buy some drinks and snacks from the hotel, and they were quite accommodating about letting us bring our own food and drinks on the balcony. Nice little garden that leads to a number of... More

Good hotel with a great terrace with a view of the town and the Ionian Sea. Nice breakfast and good rooms with veranda. No sea view from the rooms. Efficient and kind staff. Well organized transport to the beach where you can choose among several beaches. Many good restaurants within walking distance.
