We chose to stay here for one night, due to the need for parking and found the location to be perfect, as it was easy to find and only 10 minutes walk up to the old town (up quite a few steps!). There is a lovely ambience and the traditional decor is just gorgeous, with a great view of Etna from the huge windows at the end of the hallways and over the sea from our balcony.
Staff are very friendly and helpful with local knowledge, which was very useful for our drive back through the mountains towards Cefalu. One recommendation, do not miss the amazing breakfast, with plenty of choice and cakes, cakes, cakes! We did not need to eat again until the evening! All served by an incredibly jolly and attentive waiter.
All in all, this hotel is a little gem and we would have happily stayed a little longer if we had more time.
