Nice good value hotel

Posted Oct 24, 2017 on Hotels
Hotel is in pedestrianized area of Cefalu so you have to pull your suitcases to it. It is also a few rows away from the sea. Nice hotel. Décor might be a bit dated with the dark wood, but it is well maintained. There is a lovely roof terrace with views in all directions. Good breakfast.

Very centrally located in pedestrian area

Great location in town, steps to cathedral, shopping and restaurants. For parking we were directed to a lot 15 min walk away. For few hours the pedestrian area is open for cars hardly according thousands of shoppers in narrow streets that barely fit a car.

The stay was very pleasant. There was one fellow who had night duty who was always so helpful and informative and could never do enough.

Lovely little hotel 3 mins from the beach.

If you are used to and want a big swanky hotel with a pool and all the trimmings and you dont mind paying way over the odds then this hotel is not for you. If however you want a nice clean room, friendly staff and a really good location at a reasonable price then read on. This hotel is right in old Cefalu and I thought it was quite charming. No pool but who needs one when the beach is 3 minutes away. All the rooms are reasonably kitted out with air conditioning and shower etc. If you want a view you can go upto the roof terrace. Excellent location for everything in Cefalu. As its just me the B&B style of this hotel suited me perfectly as I like to go out and sort my own meal out in the evening and dont want to be tied down to a resort hotels meal schedule. The staff are really kind and friendly, would and probably will go there again.

Nice Hotel and very near to beach and main square,

Posted Jun 6, 2017
Pros: Friendliness of staff. Rooftop terrace.Lovely breakfast room.
Cons: Perhaps the breakfast room be opened as a bar with snacks .
Location: Depends on one's fitness as the climb to the top of the cliff at he rear of the hotel is somewhat foreboding.
Streets are all cobbled, so strong shoes are required for the elderly.Plenty of gift shops etc. A pleasant sqare where one can sit and watch the world go by.

Excellent location to the beach and old town.

Posted May 5, 2017
Pros: The staff were very helpful and location could not be better. The room was very clean and bed very comfortable.....rooftop terrace was incredible.
Cons: Internet was sporadic and not very reliable.
Location: The beach was one block from the Hotel. You are able to walk to many restaurants and shops in the old town.
I had a wonderful experience during my 3 nights at this Hotel. I arrived on a Monday afternoon and the staff were very accommodating with regards to upgrading my room so I had a balcony and a small view of the sea. The elevator was wonderful and very rare to find in the older buildings. The bed was very comfortable and my bathroom had a large shower ....with plenty of hot water. Overall I had a very comfortable stay.

Location and value.

Great location. Simple place but good value for the price. The pillows are pretty bad. They valet parked our car for $15 which was very convenient. Breakfast is quite basic.
