We booked 3 nights at this hotel and were excited to be in a quiet area and just relax by a pool.
The room was large with 2 beds..a single and king..overlooking the courtyard to the entrance of restaurant below. That all seemed good until we realized the AC was really loud but not much air coming out. The room was getting very hot so we opened the windows. Nice breeze came in but so did the smoke from all the smokers below that go to the restaurant or work there. Plus the pots pans singing whistling..made it hard to sleep until after 3. We closed the windows but the AC really was not working so once all the people were gone..we finally thought we would get peace. NOPE..the barking dogs (common in Sicily..why I will never know) kept us up. So we closed the windows and put on AC that sounded like a transport truck..got 3 hours sleep and woke up to 90 degree room. The sad thing is..this is a new owner and you would think he would know that there is noise from below. They did know about the AC..and said someone was coming to fix it..whatever...we told them we were checking out. They didn't seem to care..showed us one tiny cell like room..which we declined..and we left. Found a hotel called Ponte Nord Est..which is on water clean and really nice staff. It's not amazing but not terrible. A tip for the new owner. Take a half hour and roll some new paint on the walls. They are totally banged up and looks like crap. Sleep in the room..hear what we hear. Why should your guests suffer for you to make money. *** The Restaurant La Batia..that is attached to the hotel is excellent! It is not run by the hotel.
