My wife and I stayed at the Del Centro in May, when the weather was warm but not too hot. We only stayed for a few nights, but we found our time there to be truly enjoyable.
The city itself is without comparison; easily the most beautiful I've ever been to, and the Del Centro was located, well, centrally. Close to the rail station, close to buses, close to fantastic upscale shopping.
We had some trouble with our airline tickets, and the staff were beyond helpful. they bent over backwards to help us out. The chap also recommended the most incredible restaurant; which captured our mood and palate perfectly. The room rate was fantastic, considering the location, time of year, and the service.
The breakfast was lovely, with pastries, juice, etc. The breakfast room was very nicely decorated, and the service was fine.
The room... Well the room was the cutest, most romantic room; it was a split level suite with a spiral staircase leading to a bedroom with the most comfortable mattress EVER. We were a bit worried about road noise; the young people on their scooters are out all night it seems, honking away, but the room was stone quiet. I don't know much about Sicilians, but the ones that maintain this hotel keep a very clean business - not even dust under the bed! Spotless bathroom, with clean tiles and grout; something very important to us. All the usual amenities as well - shower gel, soap, plenty of loo roll, etc.
To give you an idea of how much we like this hotel, this is the first time we've ever felt compelled to write a review on this website!
If you stay here, I'm sure you will have a wonderful, romantic, and well-priced stay at the Del Centro.
