Everything was perfect: the rooms with balcony, the food, the obers, the rooms, the classical paintings, the swimming pool. The obers were most friendly, the breakfast elaborate the beds fantastic. Why are not all 4-stars hotels we visited so good? we got here late and had to leave early the next morning - too bad!!! we would have loved to... More

We stayed here for 3 nights, our room was spacious, the bathroom was clean, the front office very friendly, the restaurant is good also. We highly recommend staying here if you are in this area. The AC was really appreciated in the hot August here.

Fabulous little hotel with magnificant restaurant downstairs! Lovely rooms, warm and welcoming staff, great attention to our requests, very few but immediately answered. Heartily recommended for lodging and food. Another Sicilian hiiltown where GPS doesn't work so well, if it tries to send you up an impossible alley ignore the turn and let the satelites figure it out!

If you want to see what life is like outside of the large towns and cities then visit exquisite Castiglione di Sicilia. A beautiful mountain village overlooking Mount Etna. Don't expect the comforts of a large town but enjoy the tranquility and friendliness of this marvellous place. Little language spoken outside of Sicilian bot a problem. Super food and wine.... More

CONTEXT: a week´s tour of Sicily with one-night stays in different locations. ADVANTAGES: Pleasant family-run hotel in an enigmatic town with few other choices (the only other hotel in the centre was shut) Quiet in March. Pleasant staff. Wifi (but slow). Large rooms. DISADVANTAGES. Cold (until the heating was turned on for us). Few other places around (although try the... More

This hotel is situated at the top of the town and is reached by driving down some very narrow streets although it is signposted. It has the feel (to me at least) more of an upmarket hostel or guest house than a hotel but don’t let this put you off. The rooms are not large and decorated in a basic... More

My partner and I have just spent a week in this unique hotel which is set in the beautiful town of Castiglione di Sicilia. Although the hotel is small, basic and old fashioned it more than makes up for this with its friendly, accomodating staff. The family who run the hotel can't do enough for you and nothing is ever...

This little place is right in the middle of this fantastic little town from the Middle Ages. It's nothing fancy, but clean, best location in town and the staff is extraordinary helpful - even the restaurant downstairs is worth a visit.. A must to finish a day in Sicily with a glass of wine.

“Didn't see any other rooms but we understand that when restoring the building the owners chose to have fewer rooms (only nine) so they could make sure they were all of a good size. Our room, Room 11, had two balconies and possibly the best one from that respect. Next to reception but very quiet. There are a few steps from outside into the reception area, but apart from that access is easy.”
