We chose this B&B because it was in walking distance to the railway station. We arrived in the evening. We booked through hotels.com however on arrival our booking could not be found. At the end everything worked out however the welcome wasn't a pleasant experience.

We stayed for 2 nights at the start of a Sicily trip, arriving on 28th August. The building is extraordinary and the hotel itself is set within a former palace, occupying part of the second floor. You enter for the first time by way of the large street entrance door and thereafter walk through a big courtyard (with obligatory cats !) and up two flights of wide marble stairs.

Our room (No 5) was a good size, a firm bed which gave an excellent night's sleep - with a balcony and small bathroom. All immaculately clean and well serviced, with air conditioning too - a must for those who are unaccustomed to the heat and humidity of this great city.

Breakfast was served in a beautiful room with impressive painted ceilings. It was basic, but fine (although it seems to be the norm now in Sicily and Italy) that coffee tends to be via machines rather than fresh - but a very minor quibble.

If you are looking for a modern predictable hotel, this may not be for you. But if you want to stay somewhere central, within a 5-10 minute walk of the station and with incredible character, you will love this. And it's a bargain, too.

Wonderful - I would definitely return.

This beautiful old hotel is only a couple of minutes walk from the bus and train station, a beautiful courtyard and grand marble staircases await you when you walk through the enormous wooden entrance door. We stayed in two different rooms, the biggest room with a massive balcony and en-suite bathroom, and a smaller but just as beautifully decorated room with shared bathroom. It's like stepping back in time. After speaking to the lovely ladies running it, we discovered how steeped in history the building is. A proper old-fashioned, grand hotel. If you like staying in quirky places bursting with character and charm, then this is for you.

Room tip: Ask for the en-suite room with a balcony

Very good location, nice people, clean room and quiet. Look forward to come back! It is not recommended to get on street after eleven, but it was perfectly ok too. It looks a bit scary, but an army and police is driving around the neighborhood all the time.

I've been here maybe three times now, and this hotel is as good as ever - great location near the train station and not far from the centre, good fairly basic rooms in a historic palazzo with aircon, telly, nice dark-wood furniture, high ceilings, sympathetic colours on the walls. We didn't have time for breakfast but I sneaked a peak into the breakfast room and reminded myself how amazing it was. All in all, a bit rough around the edges, but expect plenty of atmosphere and faded grandeur. The ladies at the front desk are nice, too.

Room tip: We had room 5 this time but I prefer room 4.
