Great Home Base!
Posted Apr 28, 2015 on Hotels
We picked this hotel as our home base to explore the Western part of Sicily. It was a good choice. Beautifully restored former convent is perfectly located: short drive to Palermo, Tripani, Erice, Zingaro park, Segesta, etc. with an easy access to the highway. The breakfast was decent, served in a nice room with fabulous sea views. Our room was small, but comfortable. The balcony was a big plus. The hotel has a great restaurant, which is written up in guide books, which was great. Unfortunately, that was also the down side: our balcony was right above the restaurant and it was VERY noisy all three nights we were there up until about 1AM. So, make sure to ask for a room as far away from the restaurant entrance as possible. Contact the hotel before you book. They may give you lower price.
