6/10 Good

Nice room though pushy staff.
The owner/manager went above and beyond as I was delayed and arrived late. I thought breakfast finished at 8:30. A lady came in then and said no, breakfast 8:30. I stayed had a pice of toast and yogurt. The lady was in a tizzy kept saying out by 10:30… I understood that well. Kept saying si… Had wished to take a walk before leaving. She kept repeating must clean. I was all packed up … the repetition and angst became too much so I got my bags she took one brought it to street full of grazie with a push. My dog used to watch me closely eat so I was used to it…cappuccino was milk froth. grateful for beginning, though complicated… ending not so good… felt pushed out early. It was a clean quiet room… it was a travel adventure and my first night in Sicily.

8/10 Very good

The property is in the heart of the historic part of the city , within easy walking distance of all major attractions and amenities . It's location gives guests a real flavor of life in authentic Siciliano city. It is excellently well maintained, with a very warm and welcoming host who is a mine of information both local and further afield. Ignore other reviewers complaints of the surrounding noise, it's a lived in city. Enjoy the experience.
