We hadn't stayed at a b&b before but this felt more like a little boutique hotel than a b&b, it has obviously been purpose designed and built and the rooms are well thought out. (The only giveaway is the entry). We stayed for 4 nights with our teenage children. We had an ensuite room, theirs had the bathroom across the corridor. For most of the time we were the only guests, being winter. One day all the rooms were open as they were doing winter upgrades and all the rooms looked great: large, airy, well designed and decorated. Very clean and well maintained. The corner room has its own balcony and was huge. Most rooms face south which was lovely for a bit of winter sun. The location is fantastic, easy to walk to old town while being in the 'best' part of the city in a very securely locked building on a beautiful pedestrian plaza. We walked from the ferry terminal after catching the ferry from Naples and they let us drop our bags off early. Breakfast is Sicily-style, ie. sweet cakes (home-made) but they also do toast, fruit and yoghurt. While we were there Angela's younger brother Francesco was helping run everything (maybe not up to Angela's standards from previous reviews but still did a good job). Our only real complaint/ comment was that we would have liked to be able to use the kitchen to make a cup of tea during the evening or heat up a takeaway. Even providing a kettle and tea/coffee in the lounge area would be wonderful for us tea drinkers. Also the beds are hard and there's no clock or clock radio in the room but this seems to be common in Italy.
