The good thing about this hotel is the location, however, this hotel built in 1968 is so far beyond repair and maintenance that only a total renovation or a complete rebuild would have us considering returning. For example, after we changed from our first room at 60 Euros per night extra, in the second "upgraded" room the shower leaked, the toilet was nearly impossible to flush (my wife was unable to push the flush mechanism leaving me the duty) and to used the toilet you had to either put your feet in the shower or sit sideways. The decor was without a doubt the original floor, doors, and furniture from the 1968 build. The only newer item was the 20" tube tv from the 1980's?????!!!! The common areas are as dated and worn out as the rooms. This is a terrible hotel. There was no amount of effort that the staff could exert to make up for the location and their obvious frustration came through at the breakfast service when my wife was yelled at for getting a coffee 10 minutes early and we were stopped from taking a coffee and croissant to our room to enjoy on our balcony. For anyone reading this please understand we have spent two beautiful weeks in Sicily. We've rented a car and toured the island stopping in many locations, all were enjoyable with beautiful scenery and people. We've loved it!!! We have written this hoping to help you make the smart decision to NEVER book at this hotel.
