Our bus began a steep ascent revealing an amazing view of the plains of Trapani, the sea, and the fortress atop Erice. The switchbacks gave everyone a turn at every view. In Erice, we walked through the ancient gate to the hotel and were warmly greeted. The altitude offered cooler weather and views to die for, but not from the...

All of Erice is beautiful. This hotel places you in the heart of ancient history. Our stay was comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was so stylishly done. Delicious, with many tempting selections. Do not hesitate to enjoy the hospitality here. Erice is a challenging location. 2,500 ft. above sea level. Steep streets, challenging walking. Well worth all of the effort. A...

This is an older hotel that is in the middle of Erice. Rooms are basic with a minimum of amenities. The best part of the hotel is the family staff that is very friendly and helpful. This is a family hotel with pictures and momentos throughout. The dining room is all right. The hotel is convenient to all things in...

This is a nice basic hotel with very helpful staff. Room was clean with plenty of room. The hair dryer was hopeless not only did it not dry effectively but the plastic pipe kept on falling off when the dryer got too hot. Breakfast was very average, on our first morning it appeared that the bread had been cut some...

Pleasant enough and very kind hosts who actually gave us a ride up the hill with our bag...it is difficult to drive near the hotel and to get your bags to the lobby so we decided to leave our bags (a no no in Italy) having paid 4 Euro 50 at the parking shack for the display ticket and take...

Stayed overnight. Walked up hill with luggage which was a bit difficult. A friend who had booked us in asked for rooms with the antique furniture but we were told not available so we would have to do with the modern rooms. What modern rooms? The rooms were clean but the toilet leaked and the tank took ages to fill...

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel for a few days back in May. It was close to everything to see. Lots of little touristy shops, cafés, restaurants, and the most wonderful views, being so high on a mountain, and an ancient castle and church only a little walk away. Breakfast was European style with all you would wish to...

We stayed in this hotel in November and it appeared we were the ONLY guests. I am sure they are quite busy during the tourist season. It is a very sweet little hotel, spotlessly clean, run by an older couple and their extended family. Extremely reasonably priced. We had dinner in the hotel and it was good basic Sicilian food...

The welcome was the warmest that we had in Sicily! The food was wonderful and there is a superb delicatessen just next door to the right. The rooms we found were fairly small and the bathroom was difficult to decipher. The shower was not ideal, however in the grand scheme of things, this nowhere near tarnished our opinion of the...

This family run hotel is all about living the Sicilian experience. The hotel owner is also a restauranteur with a professional touch, who cares about the guests and their well-being. The hotel is not pretentious or posh but is nicely appointed and beautifully clean. The reception staff are welcoming and speak various languages. Hotel Moderno is situated right in the...
