Excellent location and comfort with more authentic charm. We had plenty of room in the spacious room we rented for 3 nights and 2 days. It was easy to navigate around the city with this location being so central.

A good stay in good location, fix a few things
The hotel is great and in a wonderful spot. The gentleman who greeted me was great and helpful. I would correct a few things- additional pillows, the AC was not cold, and maybe install a water fountain or machine. the place had a coffee machine and hot water which was great! overall, i would stay there again.

Hidden Gem
We absolutely loved our stay at this hotel, the location was perfect, right next to the main shopping area, the historical and market area. The lobby of the hotel is stunning and Instagram worthy (in the words of my teens). The communication was brilliant and Alberto was great, very helpful and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble for him. This hotel is a true hidden gem! We will definitely return,

One night stopover before holiday inland
This clean and comfortable guesthouse is right on the one of the main streets in the Historic Quarter, Via Etnea. Although its right in the action the bedrooms are located to the side of the property which is on a little road so not too noisy. Lots of lovely shops and buildings. Breakfast wasn't offered but it isn't needed as there are so many cafes on the doorstep. If you can get in, go for Pizza at Al Vicolo Pizza and Vino just around the corner - fabulous vibe and so pretty with all its fairy lights in the evening. Hosts at the Guesthouse welcoming and accomodated our early check in request. You can also leave luggage there when you check out. We took the Alibus from the Airport 4Euros. Very easy and drops you an easy 5 minute walk from the accommodation. I don't recommend walking down near the train station, the area is very scruffy with sadly alot of homeless people around. We didn't feel unsafe but I might have done if I was a woman travelling on my own.
