A very affordable and pleasant apartment. It is very modern, clean and spacious - two bedrooms and a fold out double in the lounge room. Shower worked well; has a washing machine and a lovely clean open kitchen - great for families doing the own cooking thing. Sweeping views of the sea on one side and views of Mt Etna on the other. Nearby to two good restaurants and a fabulous pastry shop - cannola to die for. We hired a car - don't know about the public transport. If going to Sicily again I'd book this one.
I stayed one night and it was just me. Maybe this place is more for larger groups and in warmer weather.
The staff was very helpful. I discovered AS116 was closed in the direction I needed to go (discovered by chance) and they were helpful in finding another route for me.
They could improve the breakfast. The cereal was stale.
I stayed for one night and Lorenza was super lovely very charming old style building in centre with market across the street and close to the duomo,room was tastefully decorated and comfy with great breakfast and good coffee

The staff were generous and helpful, the manager spoke fluent English, I was treated to a lovely breakfast. Huge bed, normal shower, TV, AC, easy to come and go, and a fridge, and the location is accessible from the main downtown centre.
We spent 3 nights there. Staff is very friendly and helpful, breakfast is very nice and the room was spacious and clean. The B&B is well located but not noisy. The only thing was the wifi which wasn't great and TV didn't work well but it was a good excuse to disconnect anyway. Would highly recommend the place!
The bedroom made me chuckle(a bit sexy?), wasn't sure about the decor but the living space was great. Nice staff and near the centre so ideal stop off spot and if you stay more than one night you can make use of the local markets and cook up some good food. There are some great mount etna wines to be had too. I guess the space is trad in architecture, the ceiling and structural layout is great.
The hotel has a large Spa Resort connected to it as well as great facilities and is still in its early days of becoming known. This puts a focus on the creation of events to attract visitors to the resort - there were 3 events during the 6 days we stayed at the hotel. They took over areas where guests would normally be e.g. swimming pool and outdoor dining area - which left us our hotel room and balcony (or the inside dining area) to use.
Two staff - one in the dining room and one who managed the outside area - recognised us and smiled on a number of occasions, however we did not feel as though we mattered much as guests - even if we were there for a long period of time.
We had also booked an apartment and were put into a double room on arrival. There was no problem in changing once I went and asked and an apology was made.
The apartment was very spacious and had facilities for cooking however there were no appliances, no utensils, no crockery, cutlery or glasses, no saucepans - in fact every cupboard and drawer was empty. Bathroom items - shampoo, soap etc. available. We had imagined going and purchasing local produce to bring back, however we visited local restaurants instead.
