“Angry waiter throws spoon!”
Reviewed 9 September 2013 via mobile

The first night we found a hairpin in the shower. Not the end of the world, but someone clearly did not clean well!!! Curtain hang half loose, the plastic card with hotel instructions was broken, instead of filling the tissuebox-holder someone placed 5 tissues in a holder every day! Upon confronting the night guard (and waiter for lunch) conftonting with the whole in the towel he began to shout and threw himsrlf in an anger hardly seen before. Then he threw a dppon in the direction of the hotel tv and agressivy enquired for our room nmbr and rhe nmbr of nights we intended to stay. Even though we were offered apologies next morning we were left in surprise and left (after 4 nights)

Hidden on the habour opposide an empty building lies a fairly newly build hotel "2011" Passing through, we needed a place to stay for the night. The rooms are newly refurbished and in a very good order, the staff were super friendly and helpfull and forthcomming.
We were pleasantly supprised with the state of the hotel - made our stop over in Sciacca more than a stop over. We went out to eat at Resaturant San Paulo - Highly recomended.
all in all - a very good hotel half the price we were paying anywhere else, clean and modern vs romantic and atmosphere. Ok breakfast

We stayed at the Melqart Hotel in early June and it proved to be one of the most memorable & pleasant hotels we stayed at in Sicily.
Quiet, clean, comfortable, modern amenities with good shower, breakfast, internet and parking availability better than most other hotels we stayed at in Sicily. It is located within a 3 minute walk of a couple of fairly good restaurants. The old town centre is a 10 minute walk away via a couple of long stair ways starting close to the hotel.
Minor negatives were the lighting in the bathroom being a little dim and the hotel lift was slow enough to encourage use of the stairs. (it’s only a two level hotel anyway).
Although we chose a room without a sea view we found the Marqart to be very good value.
- I can’t finish without mentioning the assistance we received from the excellent staff after my wife had sprained her ankle on the long stair way returning from the old town one afternoon. The hotel manager, Piero, helped carry my wife to our room and provided ice for the ankle. Later The next day, receptionist, Ziina, who spoke concise English and Italian, made phone enquires on our behalf to a pharmacy and arranged for her husband to drive me to the pharmacist from whom I bought crutches. Her assistance certainly reduced the pressure from our non-Italian speaking situation. We wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Sciacca.

This fairly standard hotel was reasonable for the money. It is situated near the port which is one of the more interesting things in Sciacca. The room was clean and large enough, beds reasonably comfortable, so OK. Sea view actually means sea glimpse - not worth any premium. Breakfast was acceptable quality but had a rather poor range of foods on offer. The best thing about the hotel was the charming and helpful receptionist who did her utmost to make us comfortable.

After getting lost for what seemed an eternity in the old Arab quarter of San Michele in Sciacca trying to find a B&B it was a pleasure to find this clean, modern and friendly hotel so close to the waterfront and great restaurants. Plenty of free parking outside, good breakfast, good-sized rooms at very reasonable rates and very helpful staff. Can't really ask for much more than that. We enjoyed it so much, we stayed an extra day.

The hotel is located near the waterfront. The center of town can be reached by foot by going up the stairs nearby (5-10 mins). Parking no problem right in front. There are also a few restaurants near the hotel where we had good seafood.
Breakfast was good with fresh coffee.

We are an American couple who stayed here one night in late April 2013. We reserved only hours before arriving as our hotel in Agrigento had canceled our reservation due to a "water problem." Melqart is down by the harbor, but harbor views blocked by an abandoned pasta factory across the street. Room was clean and modern with comfortable bed and modern bathroom facilities. Breakfast was simple and good. Price of room very reasonable. Desk clerk's recommendation of closest nearby restaurant provided very good and reasonably priced dinner. About 250 stair steps up from the road behind the hotel take you to Piazza Duomo and main shopping street. Harbor views from the piazza are great.
