This was our base hotel for exploring Sicily. We stayed there for 2 nonconsecutive nights. Both nights we arrived very late. We were there with a hire car and to our dismay the hire car company had no GPS for us to use. So we had to find the hotel on our own. It was an absolute nightmare. We finally stopped at a local bar and phoned the hotel- the person at the hotel very kindly agreed to come with his car to show us the way. The hotel is located in a very unsightly part of the city. The streets were very narrow and our 'secure' parking consisted of a slither of parking space in the open street. You would need to ensure that you are a very good driver if you intend to rent a car. We were asked if we had an alarm system by the front of house staff member- that in itself should indicate that the parking that this hotel offers for your car is anything but secure. The rooms were clean enough and breakfast was OK.
