This property, overlooking the incredible Greek temples in Agrigento, is one of the most beautiful and exquisite hotels I've ever encountered. Honestly one of the most romantic places I've been. The hotel is beautifully decorated, the room was pristine and the atmosphere was as peaceful as you can get. Loved it.

This hotel has everything going for it. It's centrally located, where just a few steps from its front door are Agrigento's numerous restaurants and Agrigento's shopping street, Atenea. Of course it's a perfect place to stay when you want to be near historical sites like the Valley of the Temples. Besides having reasonable rates, I was totally impressed with the friendliness and helpfulness of its staff; especially with the receptionist who spoke excellent English. She offered to place telephone calls for me so I could contact relatives who only spoke Italian; and then once reached, she acted as the interpreter for us. Without her help my visit would not have been as successful as it turned out to be. She helped me make vital genealogical connections with my Sicilian family and immensely aided in discoveries of my Sicilian ancestors, which I am now sharing with my American relatives. This hotel fit all of my needs and more, thus it turned out to be a true gem for me!
We were very warmly welcomed by the owners and they were very keen to please.We had a lovely room with unusual, artistic decor We had access to their roof terrace to chill and read which was very pleasant. It was a good location as in the main street, near the bus and train station. Easy to reach the valley of the temples. They even gave us advice on local attractions, places to eat and transport to our next place.

Very beautiful "Italian yet modern" hotel, with large bright rooms and open views of Mt. Etna. Incredibly comfortable beds! The bathrooms were beautifully designed, with very cool sinks. Watch out for the showers though, if you start it without the shower door being fully closed you may end up soaking the entire bathroom! (also no bathtubs, but that is pretty much the way I found most of Italy to be...) I stayed here for a great deal I found on Expedia. We were there during the slow season, so the experience might be different if more people were in the hotel, but we overall found it to be a very quiet and pleasant place to stay. There is a wonderful winery (Gambinos) just a short drive up the road, who provided an AMAZING food spread (go hungry!) with their full wine tasting (20 euros, but with the amount of food and wine it was a deal!).
I would love to review this bed and breakfast, but despite our reservation it was closed when we arrived to check in and no one answered the phone, it was still closed and locked up when we returned at 8pm. We were forced to find alternative accommodation. I would warn anyone with a hire car that access by car is difficult and you need to be confident in very steep extremely narrow streets, you will almost certainly need to use GPS to find it, and parking in the old part of Agricento is almost non existent.
