I stayed here for two nights in Sept 2011 in the downstairs apartment. While Villa Barone was a nice place to stay and the staff were unfailingly helpful, this room is definitely not luxurious by any stretch of the imagination. Perhaps the upstairs rooms were better. On the plus side, the breakfast was wonderful, Carmen was very helpful and full of ideas for things to see. The terrace where the breakfast room is has an extraordinary view out over the city to Mt. Etna in the distance. On the negative side, the downstairs apartment is nothing special and Villa Barone is a longish walk to the town center. All in all, I would definitely stay here again but ask for one of the upstairs apartments.
