We booked 2 nights before we got there and explained as we were coming by train would get there by 9pm. The train was delayed for over an hour so we didn't get there til after 10:30 and as no wifi couldn't let them know. Was hard to find the B&B and as it was a Saturday night the prostitutes... More

I enjoyed our stay at ipnos and loved our little room. There were beautiful alfrescos, hanging fairies and lovely furniture. The shower was huge!!! Had some trouble with the air conditioning as it was quite noisy and not very cold. Easy to walk to main piazza. Remember to call before arriving so you can collect the keys as the reception...

Easy to find B&B, very nice welcome from the owner, paid for the ensuite room, nice clean room but this room is dark and overlooks the inside court yard which is full of building materials at the moment but once the work is finished it will be better.

Even though I was here only for one night I could feel the magic of this place.You don't judge this place for what you see outside as this is a typical Sicilian building,old with an ugly door outside.Inside It's so beautiful,decoration is unique and it is very clean.They also offer you a free coffee that it's lovely!!!highly recommend this place!

The first impression when you approach the building is not inviting as it is under renovation but will look great when it's finished. Inside everything was new and clean, each room has its own bathroom in the corridor. There is a kitchen with a fridge where you can prepare your meal, there is a coffee machine as well. Rooms are...

Ipnos B&B it's right in front where the airport bus stops and it's 5 minutes away from the city center, harbor and train station. The owners are very kind and professional people, rooms are large, clean and with beautiful handmade decors. Breakfast it's at a nearby bar where you can taste, among other things, the delicious granita and brioche.

I booked the Ipnos in a hurry from the Easyjet hotel booking facility as the price and location looked good and I didn't have time to search around. I was very pleasantly surprised to find it so comfortable and thoughtfully decorated, and particularly impressed by the state-of-the-art, power/waterjet shower installed in my room's private bathroom. I was also delighted to... More
