La Dolce Vita - Luxury House
Ranked #45 of 224 Agrigento B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 August 2012

I knew seconds after Dario opened the door (June 25, 2012) that it would be a fun stay (he was waiting for us). His English was better than my Italian, but not by much. He was, however, super friendly and super helpful as he carried most of our baggage up 3 flights of worn stone steps outside.

If you want to know what your room will look like, visit the web site. There are three guest rooms and they are all accurately pictured. I never quite had the experience of walking into a room and knowing it already. We had the Louis XIV suite (or some such) and it’s a cute period reproduction. It looks like a very recent makeover because all surfaces showed barely any sign of wear. The golds were bright, the reds velvety, and the drapery crisp. Towels were bundled with a gold ribbon and placed artistically on the bed. Waiting on the desk were complimentary Sicilian pastries and snacks and beautiful Champaign flutes with bottles of local bitters.

We had a small but usable balcony where we ate breakfast and gazed out over the local church and Mediterranean. The food was generous, delicious, and brought to us on time. Bathroom was very clean and as artistic as the bedroom.

Bottom line. It was convenient to the train station and the buses to the temples. Easily worth the 74 Euros. Cozy, friendly, and charming, quirky in a good way.

The bad: Don’t stay here if you require any of the following: en elevator, easy walking (lots of steps), frigid US style air conditioning in the summer, a roomy hotel lobby, or round-the-clock front desk staff fluent in English (Dario is gone from supper time until about 8 AM.)

Room Tip: one room does not have a private bath and is probably priced accordingly. it this is important ask.

My boyfriend and I just came home from a lovely trip to Sicily. This trip wouldn't be the same without visiting this beautiful B&B. The rooms are gorgeously decorated and spacious. Every morning Dario and Giuseppe bring the breakfast to your room where you can wake up eating with the view of the sea and the church of San Calogero. The staff is very helpfull and friendly. This B&B is definitely a must-do when visiting Agrigento.

Our trip to Sicily would not have been as good had we not experienced this b&b. It's gorgeous - the rooms are clean, beautifully decorated and great size! The staff are so friendly and helpful and the breakfast to the room was an added bonus - beautiful food and lots of it!! The balcony was lively as well!! We only had one night there but are going back again next week and cannot wait!!

It is really a pity that we only stayed one night in this B&B, I wish we stayed more! Dario and his brother (I am so sorry I can't remember his name) were most welcoming and friendly and I wish them all the best in life. I loved the room (yes, yes, it's very baroque!), even though it was the only room that had its bathroom outside (it felt a bit strange in the beginning, but with the B&B being very small and the bathroom being just next door, it soon felt just like going to bathroom at home). The location was also very convenient, right in the center. But the best thing about this B&B is the breakfast! It's just enormous, delicious and is served directly in your room (or your balcony, if you prefer) at the time of your own choosing. You just need to chose what you prefer using the "breakfast form" the evening before (you can have almost anything except what requires the use of the kitchen). In the end there were so many things for breakfast that we could only eat about a half of them.

Stayed for one night whilst touring Sicily and visiting the valley of the temples. La Dolce Vita is centrally located in Agrigento but is difficult to find. This B&B is up steep stairs from a small square outside a church. I would suggest parking in via San Vito and walking the final 100 metres. The room was delightful with lots of satin and was cool and airy. The owner Dario is very welcoming and obviously proud of this accommodation. He provides a pre-ordered breakfast to the room which is a nice bonus. It was pleasant to eat on the balcony and watch the world go by!
The accommodation was good value fir money - a good place to stay in agrigento if visiting the temples.
Surprisingly quiet for a city location
Good value, clean and well appointed B&B - well done Dario

We were only one night at La Dolce Vita but was enough to enjoy the romantik atmosphere and good service that made us very happy! ;) Dario was very friendly and helpful and even gave us a call to be sure we get the right way to ariive there. Location is great, right in the middle of the center and very close to the nice restaurants and shops. Breakfast was served in our terrace with a nice view to the square. We would come back!
